Time for a Update.
Sunday 8-14-22 Running with Slip Angle Track day group at Button Willow, CW13.
As I hit the high speed left before Phil Hill, I felt the rear of the car get soft under compression. Around the rear came and back ended off the track at around 120mph. The car filled with dirt almost as fast as I went off. Back ended into the fence and berm.
I have mostly cleaned out the car. I have not got it up in the air yet for damage check. I'm ok, sore now but ok.

Oh no, sorry to see this Ashley. Most importantly you’re OK. That fine powered dirt is the worst kind of mess. Hope to see you back out there soon.

The rebuild has started. New parts and some upgrades. New lower front valance and a 40 Grit Design carbon splitter. Waiting for the new rear bumper cover to come back from the paint shot, New lower valance and side skirts well be going on. Need to weld in the Kenny Brown Jacking rails.
