BC Crew Attacks the Ridge

El Diablo, Rickerbucks, Iceman and myself made the trek to Shelton WA to run the Ridge at Ridge Motorsport Park. First off we all want to thank the Ridge Racing School for putting on a 1st class track day.

http://ridgeracingschool.com/

The track it self was 1st class and we all had a great time while we pounded on our cars. Everybody was extremely pleased with the day and we vow to return. So for those of you who missed it, you might want to put it on your radar for next time.

I ran 3 Gopros so it will take some time to download the 6 SD cards, but I will post some still pic' here soon. Video's to follow so do check back.

I must warn you that once you have tried it you will have the hook, line and sinker all the way down your throat. It wiil probably be the most fun you will ever have with your Camaro.

I'm sure you will love it. It just takes time to download. I was just about to upload some stills but one of my card readers craped out. Off to staples to get a new one.

Oddy enough I ran into Steve Paquette from Bullet Racing today and he has invited our group out to all Bullet Racing track days at the Ridge.

It was a cool track and we had a ton of fun. We were lapping around 2:20 on our 1st session.

Some times you have to be careful what you ask for. Once you have tracked your car you will be hooked.

What a BLAST... AGAIN. The track is FABULOUS... Really want to go again. Have to get some tires one day though. I threw the wife's giant yellow tank around the track madly and frankly... the Challenger held its own quite well. THANK god for computers though. A few times they saved my butt.

Folks... this is the BEST fun you can have. Costs $270 for the day and I went through 1.5 tanks of gas over three hours of track time.

As always ... Thanks a million Brian for your videos. I really truly appreciate the effort you make with our little community.

THX Bud! There are more videos to come, I have only downloaded the 1st card. Yes the Chally held up well, even El Diablo said he had to really work to get around you one time. I'd rather follow him then have him in my rear view mirror.

Yeah the tire thing. I'm sure Pumpkin would like a new pair of shoes soon.
