Default My Introduction

This Section seems dead. I wonder if anyone races any car these days.
Any way. Here are my accomplishments.
NCCC Southeast Mens Division Autocross Class Champion 2015 and 2016
NCCC Florida Region Mens Champion 12th Place 2015

Lost my sight and was blind until 2023 when I had 4 surgerys and now
have 20/20 vision. Thank you Modern Science.

Started Drag racing but time is not your friend as we get older. I will
always be a participant but not a winner.

Who else races a car?

Iíve done a lot of road course racing in my C6, but since I traded that for a C7 vert I canít because I wonít put a roll bar or cage in the C7.

@Datawiz here races.

@roadpilot

Been autocrossing, road racing, and others for about 18 years. In fact, I just placed the deposit for the 2008 Z06 new engine (#3) yesterday. It's just shy of 700 hp, and 2990 pounds.

In the mean time, I've been racing my 2021 with my daughter all over the country. She finished 2nd in the national championships in 2022 in my car in a HIGHER class.

Will be getting a C8 Z06 next September or so, but I won't beat on that one. The 2008 is going into SCCA CAM-S and should be a monster. Needs WAY more aero.

Corvettes were meant to be driven.

2nd place in the nation in SSPL when the car was only an SSRL car. She was down on power and aero by a huge margin.

Well at least there is a minority on VB that uses their Corvettes for
more than getting grocery's.
Congradulations to both of you for making the grade.
