Spectre 341 Challenge Images and Info!!!
Well it was a tragic, unfortunate and just a bizarre ending to what was a great fun filled weekend at Virginia City. I'm not going to discuss it here, but I'll provide a link to some images and info on the event.
As far as my performance was concerned I ended up with a run of 3 minutes and 53 seconds which was my goal to get under 4 minutes. Anything under 4 minutes is cooking at this race and I ended up 11th overall out of 30 or so competitors.
I'll post more images and video as it becomes available.

Here is an in car video of the winner.
"Keep your foot to the floor until the thrill of speed is overcome by the fear of death." And that was in play here if you have never been up this road this fast.

Here is a link to the results I scanned in adobe acrobat.
It should be noted that the Viper ACR was disqualified as it was running tires with an 80 tread wear rating. The rules state tires must be 100 tread wear or higher. Britt Mark Gillies from Car & Driver Magazine drove this car and from what I have been told he was faster than Michael Schumacher in a professional race in the past.
Professional race car drivers in big dollar monster rides dominated the event. ALMS GT2 and ex World Challenge driver Lou Gigliotti ended up winning in his modified ZR1 Corvette with Steve Millen taking 2nd place honors in his modified Nissan GTR.
Worthy of mentioning was a local guy and friend of mine Jeremy Kappus ended up taking 3rd in his 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution RS! He actually was leading after the 1st day. A good combination of car setup and driving talent.
