Hi fellow track yunkies,
My name is Will and I just moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area from Southern California. I have been tracking my FRS since early 2013, up and down California, from Chuckwalla Valley Raceway to Laguna Seca in the stock class of the 86Cup Challenge. I've have about 10 years doing HPDE type event in my previous cars (Supra MKIII, Genesis Coupe, SC300) and five years of wheel to wheel racing experience doing 24hrs of LeMons races.

After I get my family over to Texas, buy a new home and settle in, I can't wait to start tracking here in Texas.

P.S. Is there any fellow 24hrs of LeMons races here? I need to find a local team.

I think we are looking for a 4th member for our team. We run a 1991 MR2 turbo (LeMons, WRL, Chump eventually, and just a generic track car since the other guys are all instructors with Drivers Edge).

Last I heard it'd be a $1500 buy-in. I can get more details if you're interested.

Had a great weekend with the drivers edge doing the 3.1 at Cresson. There were four 86s out there, which was great. Sadly I left my gopro at home so just phone videos.


Set a new personal best that I was really happy with. Creeping up on the track record for TTD cars, where this should be but isn't optimized for:

Here is a video of the whole session, fun to take down several vettes on slicks. This was the best session I have ever driven, everything was clicking and I was getting excited (as you can hear by the several childish outbursts).

Looks great! Sorry I missed you this weekend.

Thanks! Those RE71Rs are absolutely insane. Couldn't believe how much more grip I had over the ZII star specs, granted they are 10mm wider.

Sad to miss you. Was looking forward to checking out the car and seeing what's going on.

Is there some sort of master list of DE events around texas? Or do I need to just go to each organizations website to figure it out?
