OMG, if you haven’t tracked your car yet, do it. I just spent the day at Thunderhill Raceway here in Northern California and had the time of my life. They have 2 tracks, a 2 mile and. 3 mile. We did the 3 mile.

The car easily made 125 mph in the 1/2 mile straights, the only competition was the few Porsche GT3’s they let on the track (not fair) and a couple Z06 Vets. Our cars stick like glue in the corners, and probably the most competitive car I’ve ever driven on a track. So get with it, Track your car... it’s what it’s made for!

On the track, note the lack of any obstacles off the track, lots of grass!

First track event with this car. (Done others at Sonoma and Laguna in other cars) and first time on this track. As I said above, this car sets into the track like no other car. Great power, which is manageable. Sticks in corners. I would post a video, but the GoPro vids are too big. Need to figure out uTube so I can post.

Lou (17Snake) might be able to help you with the youtube vid he's good with that stuff. Would enjoy seeing the vid for sure!

So I got a Front Straight video. Most of my video was at too high a frame rate. This was a rush, just hammer down.

Will tracking the car void the warranty?
I’m sure it would if you do something stupid. Warranty is a slippery slope and damage which can be directly related to performance driving I’m sure will be voided. Open track events are not fender to fender and tempered driving is what the car was developed for.
