Here are some pics from opening weekend at AutoBahn CC Joliet,IL. Enjoy. I had fun tearing around the new track in the Black NSX and The GT2.
It's nice to see owners of those kinds of cars being cool and not cocky...550orM5 said:The Carrera GT's were cool. THere were two of them there a silver one and a yellow one. THey were giving rides to anyone that wanted one. I took a ride and it was incredible!
:eek3:On the back straight it got all four wheels off the ground over the rise!! Unbelievable.

Big air, high speeds, and track days is not a good recipe for a safe event especially what is an "amatuer event".
But a very nice line up of cars. They probably would not let my POS looking car run that place. As it sits up now on jackstands undergoing a complete suspension/bushing/brake upgrade rebuild.
I'll take the cosworth v8 Shadow F1 car and a fresh change of nomex underwear. I bet that car was wicked if let loose on the track properly.
