Autobahn Track Day

May 2013 Chicago’s Autobahn North Track Event at the Heidts Performance Car Challenge. I ran my Supercharged 3.7L V6 Mustang. There we over 70 cars participating they placed us into run groups that had similar times. My testing time was done on a semi wet track with brakes that had not been bedded. they also only used transponders the first half of the day so my recorded times were not so hot.

Throughout the day I kept improving and caught a passed two cars. I pulled in a tracked prepped 2011 Mustang and a 2006 Chrysler 300 SRT8. I am sure I improved my lap time by at least 4-5 seconds by the end of the day. You can watch the video for some the excitement. At one point the wind pressure from the 120 MPH straight blew the gopro camera back and I lost the pass on the Mustang. On the flip side I was passed by two cars, but both of them must have been sandbagging during timing. They had considerably more horsepower, one however blew up on track right in front of me so be sure to check that out on the video. Overall I had a great time and I even won an Editors Choice award from Evan Smith of Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords Magazine.

This track day fun included enhanced fun parts from Nitto, Weld, Eibach, EBC, BMR, Stifflers, Barton, SPEC, Shaftmasters, Bassani, and ProCharger.

Setting up for Turn 2 by moving from the right to the left. So going deep here is not a good line.

 

The EBC Orange Pads, Weld wheels, and Nito Tires did their jobs.

The EBC Orange Pads, Weld RTS wheels, and Nitto NT-05 Tires did their jobs very well.
