VTEC Club at Streets Of Willow (Round Uno)

Woke up on Sunday morning around 4:30am to head out with my wife and daughter to Willow Springs for the first time. We met with a group from our area (Inland Empire) off the I-15 and 138. There were a few Hondas that looked familiar. We waited for about 20 minutes, nobody else showed up, so we headed out with that group. Most of the road was one lane and the group was driving slow, I hate driving slow. The road opened up and a Blue S2000 followed me as we left the group behind. Later on we ran into the black EH Si Hatchback (below) and I decided to take my first rolling shot with my new 16mm wide lens. I really liked the hatch, simple and clean. Then I took another of the S2000. Finally we arrived at a Chevron station, all sorts of track cars where there. We grabbed a bite to eat and headed towards the track. When we arrived at the track there weren't too many people there yet, but slowly it got packed.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere at the event. Everyone came prepared with tools and their spare track tires. It was even more fun smelling the tires, brakes, and the rich fuel from a few cars. When behind the lens you can see the focus and how serious the drivers are. I didn't introduce myself to many people just a few familiar faces and met a few new people. I like analyzing the vehicles from the pits to the track how they move which takes better turns. But also I guess it's all the seat time and practice the drivers put into the track and the time they put into what to do next to the vehicle to improve. I really dig that some Hondas had the cut off rear bumpers to create less drag. What surprised me was the number of females enthusiasts tracking there cars! Not sure how many, but I saw a few. Good to see ladies getting behind the wheel and blasting around the track. I enjoyed my day at SOW hopefully to make it to the next event. Hope you guys and girls enjoy the coverage and like the blog. ^_^

Brandon Camacho S2000 Heading to SOW

Finally the first round started at the track and I started gathering some shots. What I really dig about track events is the smell of rubber and brake pads. Each car has a slightly different sound, which is cool. Besides that it's the atmosphere! Everyone is in a good mood, people say what's up or introduce themselves. Overall all the "VTEC Club" competitors were awesome at the track.

You rarely see TSX's at the track, odd because they were used for larger SCCA racing events...

Not sure is she was giving the peace sign to me or someone else lol

Chris' track inspired CRX, now that it is being raced, is it still "inspired"?

I was wondering why this EF was fast as lightning. It's K-swapped. Tom Attack, killing it.

On the way out, spotted this second generation Civic, looks like it needs some minor work.
