Yes we are definitely in K-State land. We originally moved here in 2013 when my wife took a job with KSU. She has since moved on, but my job is about 15 minutes away and she can work from home, so we'll probably be here a while.Steve , since you are in K State Land, we in the Midwest know you likely travel down to Topeka to play on the road course or even autocross on occasion. Just wanted to let you know Motorsport Park Hastings was just repaved in October with a very similar asphalt compound as the Terrifically Tire friendly circuit there in Topeka, so put September 2022 on your calendar to zip up to Nebraska to run with a bunch of TMO crazies, Ford Engineers, and other Mustang Maniacs in the Fast Ford and Mustang Roundup. Close to you and a definite " Bucket List " for TrackAddicts in the Heartland of America.
My sister and brother in law went to KSU and I lived in Salina for years, so I am a bit acquainted to Aggieville ---- heh, the area is just celebrating Kansas's tremendous wheat production by allowing folks to understand the wonderful tributes of cereal malt beverages, ha.
I'll have to try to make it to Topeka when you're running. There was an event or two this year where they had open track and autocrossing scheduled for the same day.Oh, I was in Aggieville primarily in the 70s, so let's not go into all the changes I would experience , ha. I often run with NASA at Topeka and they will also have a track event at Hastings this coming year , one month before the Mustang Roundup. With all the cool stuff the Ford Engineers from Dearborn usually bring down, it is a special event not unlike the Shelby event at Hallett. The difference is a your Pony will have a lot more time to gallop --- up to 4 days!! I run with SCCA in my son's Silver EVO 9 so wander over and introduce yourself when you are in Lincoln.
Interesting you run at Salina as I was one of the guys who pushed to start the Salina Region of the SCCA, and since we branched out from the Wichita Region I actually ran at Yoder in the 1980s! Have autocrossed in Topeka numerous times, but it was alot more fun when we ran on the airport concrete in my estimation.
I will flat guarantee if you enjoyed the Shelbyfest at Hallett you will absolutely love the Hallet event --- even more fun as your runs are timed!!
Yes, It's Royal Crimson. It's a one year only car, so if you see one you know it's an '18. If I remember right, there were 22 Stage 2 cars made in this color. I'm still curious how many total RC Mustangs were made. I really haven't seen very many.What a beautiful color. What’s it called?
Ha Ha! That was just to make sure I didn't leak too much gas if there were issues. All 3 cars are within a few feet, so I really don't want to light anything up (yes, the fire extinguisher was resting on the front fender).Dang Steve what are you going to do, the ole Cougar only ran for 21 seconds, you will never make it 15 miles to the new home, ha!
