We got to the Track early to set up our pit area [Thank you JT.]
& set up the s13.4 for the first practice session.
George and his family were there right on time as well.
All the Arizona drivers ended up pitting next to each other. The Elevens' cars were looking so gangster and ready to Do Work. You can see Sam Yousif in the background unloading his LS1 350Z.
On Vitaly's first run he kicked the clutch, & having never been on a bank of any sort before, it caught him a little off gaurd.
George was getting back in the swing of things, earning his nickname as the Lumberjack.
Chris Forsberg was there with his completely comp-spec four seater M, laying down crazy v8 sedan runs.
Carlos Estrella hit the lower wall quite hard. Fortunately he was back out there for the afternoon session.
Vitaly's second run went like so:
Neddless to say his spirits were down. Luckily we had Dan & Kelly trackside keeping him in the car and continuing to do laps, not letting him be defeated by this huge blow to his confidence.
A little crowbar and slegde hammer time later, along with some humorous vinyl to lighten the mood, and it was time for session 2. After that, he was himself again.
Back in form!
We'll finish up Day One tommorow. Check ya later, brah.
