    Thanks for the ride! Always great to talk with you and driving the monster was a treat

    Likewise. And we both got what we went for (except for your Sasquatch size shoes)

    Stumbled across this the other day. If this doesn't make you want to get a HANS, not much will.

    Keep them coming...I like justifying purchases of that size to the wife with videos like these.

    However, the response of 'if you weren't racing you wouldn't need it' shut me right down

    Never a good thing showing a crash to the wife. Nothing good can ever come out of that. The fact that we know is more than enough

    Curious, what did you boys buy?

    For me - mostly Bits & Pieces - padding for my cage build; window net & mount; Scroth Pro II Hans 6 point 2" Belts; Hans Anchor Kit for new Helmet; new Sparco fireproof undershirt.

    Nothing really exciting . . .

    Great, well-attended meeting yesterday. Once again, the GT Series is way out in front of all other amateur road racing venues with the new Platinum Series.

    Great turnout. I was really surprised by the lack of questions at the end. Stunned, or it was well explained. lol.

    Only major change so far is the Pt series will take a ' less is more' approach in the beginning with less events in 2015 to get the ball rolling and not take away from what works so well in the GT challenge. We'll schedule Pt around regional events and the AISA weekend best we can.
    -Every car in Pt will require a HANs type device.

    I was curious about that. Will those that were running faster than 2:20 be able to keep it over 2:20 when they run the GT series? Can a simple tire change fix that? I can't imagine that any of the fast guys only want to run a few times in the year but the GT1 GT Series guys aren't going to want to get smoked by sub 2:20 cars.

    If someone runs 2:19 in a GT race what happens? Is it the average lap speed that matters or does any lap under 2:20 cause issues?

    Like I said, just curious as none of it affects me very much.
