I might have had the whole race uploaded by now, but Vista couldn't handle a basic task and blue screened on me in the middle of the upload, so it'll be another hour or two...

In the mean time, here's how Captain Oversteer warms up his tires on the pace lap: http://www.rm944.com/events/2008-08-09_10%20Hastings/Chuck%20Tire%20Warming.wmv

He was wanting to make sure there was rubber there so he can have an advantage if he ever caught up with Dirks. By the way did he ever catch up with Dirks??? :D

Here is my view of the Saturday Heat Race (it's 550 MB big, yes, huge, so please right-click>save as...):

3:48 is particularly entertaining as I follow Dirks and another red 944 (sorry I don't know who it belongs to) through turn 13 ;)

If the other red 944 that you're talking about passed Dirks on the inside of 13 and then ran him off the track, then that would be me. :D

Downloading it now...

I also have mine, and hopefully Michelle's, main race videos to mix in later...

Here I am in the heat race, passing Dirks and scaring him off the track: http://www.rm944.com/events/2008-08-09_10%20Hastings/Weston%20Passes%20Dirks.wmv

My video camera died over the weekend so nothing that we recorded came out. I hope some people have video of Saturday's race in the rain.

Is that a frog I hit off my windshield (just above my extinguisher handle) at 1:01?

Why is the rearview image backwards???
The cars he passed popped out on the opposite side from the side he passed them on. :confused:

You can read the numbers of the cars behind him, just as if you were standing in front of them. :confused:

Because I setup the picture-in-picture as I was swerving down I-80 on the way home and forgot to apply mirroring on his rear camera. :D Good catch. Fixing it now...

I just wanted to thank everyone at NASA for another great weekend. I just love how everyone is like one big family. Despite Saturdays wet weather, I still had a great time and got experience driving in the rain!
A BIG thank you to George, between the track, the hospitality and the bacardi bus, no wonder Hastings is one of my favorite tracks!!!
A huge shout out to the 944 guys, I love racing with you! I especially had a great time running with Gary.... That was awesome!!!! You almost had me at the end!
To my husband, Dave, thanks again for building me such a great car, one of these days I will make you pay for it!:D
Again thanks to all for such a great weekend. Can't wait for PPIR.

Oh man, that was an awesome race. Great racing Eban, thanks for being a good sport there in traffic. You did a great job putting on the pressure and it worked. I fried that tire in 13 and it was over. Cant wait to race with everyone at PPIR (with a new front tire, damn 888's).

WEEEEEEEE-ha!

almost as much fun as being there!

Chris it looks like you wore out the converse all stars on that turn to give him the chance! Way to go Eban!

looks like y'all had much fun. wish I could'a been there but I traded the time for pueblo in July. let's see if I can pull PPIR out of the hat...

Here's my video from the main race: http://www.wasabiraceteam.com/video/08-10-08MainRace-large.ASF . This one's even bigger than the last (950MB), and there's some foul language on the white flag lap :o

Yeah, that was a lot of fun - especially at the finish. I wish that race could have gone a few more laps, as I was having a blast racing with you!

I also had a good time racing with Weston on Saturday, and trying to keep up with Chuck in the rain; what a great weekend of close, clean racing. :D
