Holy Gravel Traps and Door Donuts, Batman!!!

To say the Axis had an interesting week is an understatement. From four days of open track at Watkins Glen to a verrrrry action-packed Hyperfest and ProSolo weekend, the Axis of Oversteer has lots to report. Stay tuned...


  1. I eagerly await video... Having heard rumors of a damaged shoe and some good spec E30 results for the LaBomba. Did you weld that rear axle yet?

  2. With everyone's help, that will buff right out of the M-Shu :)

  3. O.K. - None of this sounds good.
    A "damaged shoe", "door donuts", "gravel traps," "welding," and the line; "that will buff right out" - no matter how much one wishes to reashure the crashee that all will be fine - are all bad... very, very bad.
    Hyperfest sounds like fun - until visions in turn 8 of "judging the Daisy Duke look alike contest" overtake the prudent visions of: "what I should do to actually navigate turn 8."

    Next stop is of course: gravel.

    Hope it's nothing serious.

  5. I'm afraid I am the guy in the black Integra and I feel just awful about it. Putting the TT in Group 4 changes the dynamics of it, and we don't seem to re-enforce that there are a lot of Group 4 people who grew up in NASA Virgina/MA, people who know how seriously the individual point requirement was as Group 4 developed.

    I especially feel horrible about it because I knew the M Coupe was there, but also believed I recognised the car from other events and believed I could trust him to back off. If I had made eye contact, I'd have known the driver was not who I thought he was. :(

    I hope this unfortunate experience doesn't put Axis off of future participation, and I hope it doesn't make him too fearful of Type R drivers.

  6. Hehe, it would take a lot more than that little incident to put AC out of the game for long, and Type R drivers developed their reputation far before this (I kid, I kid).

    Stay safe out there.

  7. George, thanks for posting here. I want to use our incident for some positive discussion about driver's schools and on track incidents. Maybe later in the week, I hope you can join in.
