My short recap video of the racing fun on Saturday is now up on 86DRIVE:

http://86drive.com/2015/05/27/norcal...t-laguna-seca/

I thought about putting some background music to it, but that would just ruin the natural soundtrack of engines winding out to their limits along the main straight...

I was curious about lap times from these events but I don't see them listed anywhere, other than one personal mention in a post. Are these secret?

Partially correct . I seriously thought it was posted on this site too after the corrections were made due to the times.

Kind of wishing it was a secret ... with the phenomenal drivers running in Street Class, I'm left struggling to take 4th place.

Safe travels to everyone who is heading down to Buttonwillow this weekend for NorCal's 86CUP Rounds 5 & 6 ... I'm heading down this afternoon myself. Those of you who are attending or racing, see you there! For those who can't make it, you can follow us on the 86DRIVE Instagram account for photo and maybe video coverage!

Do people usually come spectate at these events?

I'm thinking of participating next year, but I've only done one track day so far. How much experience do I need to have before I can participate?

Come spectate or ask for ride alongs. Just bring your helmet.

You have to have at least 7 track day experience to move up to Point By group with NCRC. You can participate once you've moved up out of solo group. For timing, you need to rent a transponder for timing for $20/day, or if you owe an AiM, use that and take a 0.10s penalty.

Good luck.

Thanks for putting this on! We had a blast on Sunday learning the track and dialing in the car. Also learned that our car is supposed to be in exhibition class

I had a fun time this past weekend on the track and off, my first time at Buttonwillow! Just wish it wasn't so damn hot...

After catching a ride with @sw20kosh who showed me some lines and suggested approaches to the Buttonwillow course, I was able to turn out a lap time of 2:12.7 … not the fastest by any means but I exceeded my own (humble) expectations. Here is video of my best lap:

Norcal 86Cup Rounds 6 & 7 at Buttonwillow was a blistering success! Thank You Cusco, Winmax, and CSG for your support! Special thanks to GTRadial and NCRC for your continued support!

Half way thru the 2015 season, 86Cup again was a double-region trackday at Buttonwillow this past Saturday. 12 podium finishes were equally divided between the Norcal and Socal groups. NorCal capturing all 3 podium finishes in the Stock class, 1st and 3rd place finishes in the Street class, and 1st place podium in the Modified class. Socal comfortably took all three podium finishes in the Unlimited class with their veteran drivers, 2nd place finish in Street class, and twice in Modified class. In an observation of the results, Norcal can hold its own (David) against the reigns of the Socal (Goliath) drivers. Congrats to all the podium winners! Special thanks to Socal (and LV) 86Cup for the hospitality on their home turf.

Winners: from 1st to 3rd:
Stock - Erik (Norcal), AK (Norcal), Van N. (Norcal)
Street - Kevin P. (Norcal), Jerel (Socal), Wilson (Norcal)
Modified - Gary (Norcal), Garrett (Socal), Alex (Socal)
Unlimited - Simon (Socal), Ted (Socal), Mike K. (Socal)



The coolest guy this past weekend was Scott Grasso (@Pwolf)! Our Norcal photog was impressive absorbing the heat session after session, lap after lap waiting for that great picture of 86Cup drivers hot on the track. The 86Cup drivers were at least in the shade of the their moving vehicle but not Scott, he stood in the sun waiting for each and every 86Cup driver to come around the turn. That's why Scott was the coolest guy! Thanks Scott!!

Link to his pictorial coverage of June 27th and 28th 2015 - Norcal/Socal 86Cup @ Buttonwillow Raceway:
http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=90892

An anticipated event, not to mention saddened that I had to return the Cusco FRS, was a fun-filled weekend with local and distant friends! The departure of Norcal and Socal on Friday was met with a rib-filled dinner for the masses at Buttonwillow's Willow Ranch BBQ. The late night tactics of chatting and games are always the icing to look forward to with these events. Thanks to everyone that came out!!

Special THANK YOUs to the two gentlemen who treated us to Saturday night's dinner at La Costa Mariscos. You know who are #bawllers!

Buttonwillow was unfamiliar with many of the Norcal participants but that did not hinder them to pull in great lap times and having a fun weekend. That's evident with Norcal drivers winning podium finishes in the Stock and Street classes. While the sun shined closely on Buttonwillow and its unshielding paddock, Norcal and Socal participated in the game of hide 'n go seek between EZup tents and personal trailers. "It's not that hot" was the convincing method to tolerate the heat - just before getting back into the car for another session (with the heater on! #becauseracecar). New faces were introduced and old faces came again to share yet another successful round of the 86Cup for both Norcal and Socal!

86Cup is growing!! The weekend included special treats to prove this. With Cusco, Winmax, and GTRadial representation present - some of us witnessed Sam's ability to circle the track in a couple of 86s (2:14 and 2:17 lap times respectively for both days - different 86s). I also hear Sam may need to practice suiting up again as the future of 86Cup and NCRC may visit what he's known to do.

Other evidence we witnessed this weekend that shows 86Cup is growing, are the addition of 3 Norcal shops/tuners joining in on the fun. In no particular order, I would like your attention on these shops:

Neal Wiebmer, owner/operator of The Racer's Line anticipated this weekend with previous track days with other track organizers. Neal is easily accessible thru Norcal as he's active with our meets and events. He's since moved his location from "well worth the drive north" to something closer in the East Bay...or at least in progress.

Another Norcal tuner present on Sunday was Ed Susman of EQ Tuning. He's built a BRZ like many but he piloted it like nobody - setting the fastest 86 time for the weekend (Sunday - 1:56.218). Expect him to exhibit more of his fast BRZ and share what tricks he was doing thru the day to set such lap times.

Stranger to some but very familiar faces on the track, are Gary Yeung and Wen Lin (Eric). Hailing from a Norcal region called the Peninsula, Gary and Eric have been producing tuned cars at Elite Performance and testing them on the track. Ironically, Eric's untuned, unflamboyant FRS took top podium finish in the Stock class. And Gary took a customer's FRS to new heights piloting it to win Modified class.

Next Norcal 86Cup weekend will be Aug 8/9 at home in Thunderhill. Sign up now as you know NCRC fills up fast!

Here's a video from my 4th session including a 1:56.9. Unfortunately I didn't get a video of the 1:56.2 next session. My lines are still a bit messy and I know a few places I can pick up speed. If only Buttonwillow wasn't so far
