    Ridge Motorsports Park Global Time Attack April 3rd 4th

    I'm headed to this next week! Any Vipers in the area (Pacific Northwest) that want to go and aren't ready to compete, they just added a "lapping group" which isn't timed to try and get more people to the event. If you have a Viper and are in the area, PM me for more details, come hang out! The Lone Star Drift crew will be there as well as the Just Vibes car show guys. They were both at COTA Super Lap Battle and did an amazing job.

    Great track; you'll love it. There's a nice climb after the front straight, then a mini, much lower speed than Laguna corkscrew as you go back down the ridge.
    Jon B lives fairly close... hopefully he'll show up.

    Hey buddy I just got your voicemail! Was pretty drunk last night at Barrett Jackson. I sent your offer to the event people! I'll let you know if they want your help or not! Thanks!

    Yeah the track looks amazing! Kinda scary that they left trees so close to the asphalt. LOL. What's a fast time there? Fastest time I've found on Youtube is a 1.44

    Trees at The Ridge are not as close as they appear, and NOT really in any over-run / impact zones.

    PACIFIC RACEWAY near Seattle [Formerly S.I.R] is a truly scary place by comparo: Trees and Berms..... seems like a Rallye-Cross at times...

    Well, I'm not as focused on lap times as you. Plus I was only there once and, like virtually everyone in our group -it was a private rental- I drove my car the 1500 mile round trip. So... street tires, street alignment etc. From memory, our faster guys were in the 1:50's. I think some bikes have run sub 1:40. Your monster should be able to give them a run.

    It does look like there are lots of trees but like Jon said, they weren't a concern. I recall the braking zone just before you enter the "corkscrew" being tricky. It's easy to overshoot it there.

    Yeah I just meant in general. Sub 40 is my goal!! You should come and do their lapping sessions. 4 per day. Looks like it's $425- https://globaltimeattack.regfox.com/...ark-april-2021

    I'll be back, for sure. Right now, the border restrictions make it too difficult. (And very expensive; we have to pay $2,000.00 every time we return to Canada)

    From the texts I am getting, it sounds like Cable is tearing them up at GTA Ridge Motorsports Park - sub 1:40! He is already 3-4 seconds faster than last year's GTA best time!

    Spoiler alert......1:38.2. I think big horsepower doesn't hurt for a track with 400' of elevation change.

    The times are getting even faster, but I'll let Cable tell you about those. Impressive! LOL

    Thanks Jon! Yes, 1.37 flat. My goal was anything sub 1.40 so was extremely happy! I'll try to do a writeup and post the video soon. Headed to Buttonwillow this weekend!

    Congrats man! This is my local track, and I can tell everyone on here 1:37 is absolutely mind melting, truly astonishing.
    For reference, I run high 1:40s in my GT3, and the Dundon Motorsports guys ran a 1:44 in their shop GT3RS with the Ventus 2 aero package (like 1500 LB downforce).
    I had to miss the event due to work unfortunately.

    I'm extremely eager to see the video, will teach me a thing or two for sure!

    Ok, just got back from Buttonwillow, a track I know and car was 3 seconds slower than last year. We found burned plugs right away, replaced, then burned again. We think it might be an 02 sensor, but not sure yet. This explains why I stopped getting faster at Ridge. It must have happened my last session Saturday. I put on new tires Sunday, and in the cool morning we were shooting for 1.34.9. New tires, morning session I'm always at least 2 seconds faster. So I was very frustrated, I thought it was me, but it was the car. I was 10mph slower on the straight at buttonwillow versus last year, but was expecting 10mph faster with the sequential. So down around 20mph. Huge power loss.
