I believe Big Red was DQ'd for not meeting minimum requirements.

Stuart, there was an issue with Big Red's transponder the first time out, I believe it may have conflicted with his own transponder in the car - anyway, his lap times didn't register on the official track timing equipment. Just to clarify, he was running exhibition only because he didn't meet the specific tech requirements of working turn signals, headlights and a couple of others. We did try to get times, the transponders work properly about 95% of the time. I will double check the manually recorded times when they arrive back from the track and see if we have anything.

If I remember correctly... RJ stated that he didnt run under 2:xx because of the engine tune/issues.

I would have loved to have been able to see Big Red run. Maybe next year.

Guys, what do you think about using the photos for a Calendar and perhaps even an event poster?

Any interest? With cars like these, I think a photo montage poster of them would be outstanding.

Put the sponsors names on it along with the forums who sent help.

Yes, he was DQ'd for no brake lights and for having shaved tires. Even so, it wasn't running right and I heard his times were in the low 2.xx range. He didn't try the autocross.

The ZR1 went off track a couple of times.. the driver wasn't as good as the car.

Yeah, the car sounded wicked, but way out of tune. Cool car. I knew it wasn't competing just was curious as to his times.

The ZR1 looked like it had been 4 wheeling, LOL.

There was a video company filming the event, they got lots of shots of the cars both on and off the track!

I'm going to see if we can do some kind of poll here and at Pro-Touring.com and come up with a potential order number. Once they see how many they might sell, they can figure out the price. They would sell them to participants for $150. each but if we can generate some volume, the price would come down. I doubt it will go to $20.00 but hopefully less than $50. We'd have to see.
