2009 SCCA Spring PDX

Today I attended the SCCA Spring PDX out at Summit Point, WV.  This was a lot of fun compared to either day 1 or day 2 of driving school last weekend.  We were on the Shenandoah course instead of the “Main” course.  This was my first experience with Shenandoah.  It has about twice as many turns as the Main course and has a banked curve modeled after the BMW testing grounds in Nuremberg, Germany.  That is really a lot of fun!

I again rented a car from Meathead Racing.  This time I rented “Bad” Al Bell’s car called, “Pinky”.  As you can see below, it has a couple of pink stripes painted on its Subaru blue body.

Pinky served me well.  I had a great time with all of the practivce sessions.  For the last session of the day, I switched over to Al Bell’s ’99 Miata since I was evaluating which car to buy for the season.

The day was safe and enjoyable.  No spin outs, no fender benders, no stern warnings from the staff or flag workers – and no missed flags!  Good day.
