Yes he did, although after session 6 he said I really didn't need him and I'm ready for solo intermediate group!

I'm sure many of us would like to think we know how to drive, but just need someplace to safely (and legally) practice. Was there anything he helped you with that you didn't know you needed?

Did you video a session with the camera inside the car? Would love to hear the car w/o the wind noise, and maybe eavesdrop on the instructor's comments.

I must say that my personal idea of a dream vacation has changed from another week in Disney World to a weekend at Bondurant.

No video inside. I don't own a GoPro but I was able to borrow one for one session! As far as the instructor goes, he was very helpful in guiding me through the proper line and positioning of the car. It's a lot of work really to hit the turn ins and apex just right!

Camaro5 Fest IV, I have no words to express my feelings so I'll let the emoticons do the talking.... enough said? It was a blast from start to finish! Drove out with an Upstate C5 Camarovan (6 of us) and stayed at the host hotel. The parking lot party was interesting, with every combination of mods you can think of spread throughout the lot! When it got dark all the LED's came on, quite a scene!

My favorite part was the Camarocross in which Big Red did great, a lot better than the nut behind the wheel! I was able to improve my times by about 7 seconds from first run on Friday to last run on Saturday but I didn't make the finals, stiff competition! This was our first Camarocross and now I can't wait till next year! A new set of tires and FE-4 sway bar set-up and Ill be more competitive! Now I just have to find time to give the car a good wash!

Anyway, here's a bunch of pics and a couple vids!

One more pic from Camaro5 Fest! I had some Pedders bushing installed at Raymonds on Thursday morning and of course JusticePete was there helping. Well that Friday evening at the parking lot party I saw Pete walking around with a really HOT chick who happened to be his Pedders "spokes woman" Abigail Duff. So Pete walks over to our Upstate C5 group and calls me out to introduce Abigail to me! Next thing I know he says "Now that you are a part of the Pedders family I need to get a picture for our Facebook page". Needless to say I agreed!
