Default Quick pics from the P1HPDE TimeAttack (August 26, 2011)

From beautiful evening light:


To dark enough to the brake rotors glowing:




And there were some faces (canards? ) that I hadn't seen all season:


There were even some competing photographers:


And some people setting laps on very familiar machinery:




All my pics:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/grant_s...7627403172367/

As usual my pics are licensed "Creative Commons Attribution" so you're free to edit/copy/distribute/profit them, all I need you to do is give me attribution (ie. credit) for taking it. ie. "pics by GrantC" or a link back to my flickr

I am sure if you bring the car out to the next fun day event you will be able to make that happen again.

Ive started putting all the weight back in the car to return it to stock"ish"... had about 240lbs extra last night and I noticed it was getting harder on the brakes. Should have both front seats and most of the OEM stock back on within the week so I dont want to run it like that.

May for fun day I'll bring out the NSX or my friends Murciellago
