[888 Motorsports] [SCCBC / CACC] CW2 RACE – TurkeyTriple 10/10/15 @ Mission


Qualify was fairly dry, but the Race was soaking. Good fun!

Luckily I had the opportunity to drive R&P Motorsport’s EF Civic Si.

A long time running car with R&P, sporting a welded diff – this car was an absolute blast to drive.

[888 Motorsports] [SCCBC] CW2 PRACTICE – May-Niacs Weekend 05/24/14 @ Mission Raceway Park

Featuring the very wet practice session from the May-Niac’s Weekend. Also scrubbed in my first set of Toyo RA-1s ever which was a bit greasy at first (I also over-inflated the rears so it was a bit more tail happy). Unfortunately I let the gopro battery run out and was never able to get a decent recording of the two race sessions. Oh well – live and learn, won’t happen next time. I think it’s really important to get video of every run, if not for self improvement, for a witness in case of a racing incident.

It was fun racing with the senior drivers in IP2 class for the first time. It’s much more competitive as one can imagine versus a novice race. I felt much more challenged and now welcome senior races.

Autocross Monster arriving this Race Season!

To get a baseline for suspension handling, we entered the first Autocross of the year on February 3rd, held by the UBC Sports Car Club. It is called “Slush Series” for a very good reason as it runs during the racing off season.

I also incorrectly classed the car in Autocross as Street Touring, when it should have been Street Prepared. Got some funny looks there. Anyways, our purpose was for Road Race tuning and not for competition so it really doesn’t matter.

Despite the minimal seat time associated with autocross, we were able to get a better feel of the car at its limit in the wet with our rain tires (Bridgestone RE11). Had an awesome time. Definitely cannot wait until we can get some laps in at Mission Raceway.
