Sue had a great track day in Pahrump, NV. (70 miles north of Las Vegas) today. It's a private track for members only but when the Porsche Club rents the track they invite the SCCA members to join them. Right now it's longest course is 3.1 miles but in 6 months it will be the longest road course in America 6.5 miles. Anyways we had a great day, car ran great and held its own running 5 seconds behind the fasted Porsche in our group. I'm adding a picture of Sue approaching the start finish line. What the picture doesn't show is that Sue passed the Porsche at the start of the straight away. It was 95 degrees and we were running Hoosier R6 tires at 30 ponds. Her best time was a 3:07 run on the 3.1 mile course. 7895

That is a great track! Fiat brought a bunch of us out there to evaluate the car. It is a gorgeous location. Below is the Track Orientation and Safety talk by Dan Fry, lead Abarth development engineer:


Here are a couple of warm up laps I did:

What size hoosier did you run? Any changes to alignment or camber? What were wear patterns after event? How hard was driver pushing? Questions questions thank you. ;-)

Why I ask on size - the 225 hoosier has same OD as the 205. Fitment would require 7.5 in rim min and precise offset and or fender roll but not sure hence why i ask.
