Despite driving for this whole year as a fellow rival in Unlimited class for Miata Challenge, I've never ever actually watched him drive or seen him live on the track. This is a good experience to see what Gordon "TrackDayHookey" Jennings can do with that 300whp Rotrex-powered racecar of his.
Track: Buttonwillow Raceway (C13)
Buttonwillow Raceway 13 CW NASA Pro Racing March 10, 2011
A great time with friends and competators. Was down on good tires but great
fun pushing the truck at it's adhesive limits. Wanted to keep up with the
66 truck but its grunt was just too much. Not too mention the Blue Mazda GT
again blocked me and I almost did a loop in that very same corner with him
several months ago! Got some good vid of my friend John and his well sorded
Porsche and a very tight white rotary.

Laguna Seca (4/11/2010): Enjoying the Rain
I love the rain!!! I was excited to hear that I was driving my first track
day in the rain since the spring of 2006. I have driven on twisty roads
and auto-x's in the rain since then, but it's really not the same. Plus,
my first 2 of 3 track days ever were in wet conditions and I credit those
to why I learned quickly when I first started driving on the track 5 years
Note: I was not trying to drift in the video. I was honestly trying to
drive fast to set a benchmark lap time at Laguna Seca in the wet, but the
flaggers and stewards didn't agree with me.
2 Fast Laps at Sebring by Vic in a Miata
Vic drives my TTD 165rwhp Rotrex supercharged Miata in TTC. He crushes
the TTD track record and had the fastest time in TTC ... at least he
would have if the timers were working :(. Lap times are from onboard
GPS lap timer.

open session for us Unlimited class Miata drivers to fool around and film a

472 RWHP Turbo Miata, Ultimate Street Car Challenge 2004
Andrew Campbell's 472 RWHP turbo Miata
that was featured in Sport Compact Car's 2004 USCC.
The road course part was @ SOW and the car was driven by me.
As you can tell, it was quite a handful - huge, laggy turbo, stock brakes, tires that were far too small
to put the power down and a stock radiator that prevented us from taking a
warm-up lap (or the car would overheat...).
Still, we came 5th after the dust settled, ahead of HPA's twin turbo R32 Golf, the mighty Nissan Skyline R32GTR
as well as the overall winner of the event with the supercharged V6 MR2.
Not too bad.

Speedventures Miata Challenge at Buttonwillow #13 2:07.6 lap on 1/30/11
This is Speedventures 2011 Miata Challenge #1 at Buttonwillow #13 on
Car is Spec Miata with restrictor pulled. and 949racing 6UL wheels on
This was my fast lap of the day, driest condition of the day. It rained on
and off since 6am. one hour of dry, and 10 minutes worth of sun made this
fastest lap of the day. Had to lift at Riverside just to be sure of the
pass. another second left in it. There are some wet spot, so had to drive
around apexes at few corners.
this was using iPhone Harry's Lap Timer, great app for ~$12. lap time is
not super accurate. might be off as much as 1/2 second compare to an AMB.

Round 2 here: http://youtu.be/qEoGBKh7t14
First time ever at this location, so I wasn't familiar with the track. This
is the 3rd session. Got my lap time down to 28.708 on lap 10, good enough
for 6th best for Demember 2011 and best of the week.
