  • Any Stories from Indy?

    Anyone have any stories Indy the past weekend while we were at NT? I heard the A&J Racing S2000 won P2 and came in 5th or 6th overall in the SCCA Sedan Invitational. Anyone else run?

    i was on a balcony 13th floor on quebec right over the accident..got some cool action pics!! (hmm should post 'em later). that S2k was quick but HOLY SMOKESCREEN BATMAN! that car had some painful engine problems as soon as the checkered flag dropped..hmm let's see what else..OMG! that little 87 CRX was crazy fast! he smoked FDs, BMWs you name it! what the heck did he have under the hood? the lone miata was nice to watch too but obviously down on power compared to his competitors (mind boggling!?). very tempting though...hehheheh

      The CRX was Paul Bunbury's. It's a GT4 car that has three things going for it:

      1. VERY good driver.
      2. VERY good driver.
      3. Well sorted (engine/brakes/suspension) machine.

      BTW, it runs a SOHC non EFI motor. Who needs VTEC?

        Paul started in autox with the CRX. Competed in solo for 3 years (???) or so before going road racing.

          Hope Paul's not on here. He's got a big enough ego as it is He's got great brakes and a light enough car with enough rubber to use them effectively. He was out braking Wouter's RX7 with huge aftermarket brakes but DOT tyres and too much weight. Great pass in turn 6. Too bad I was crewing for Wouter.

            haha......Paul's car used to be ours.

            Chris and Bart built that car years ago as a Conference GT 4 car.

              Paul actually autoxed for many years (on and off) with Hondas for the most part and was also one of the key members the Squamish/Whistler Car Club (gone now). Paul is was very fast in Autox ex as he is now in racing.

              One more note, Paul's engine is built by Mike Slusar, same guy as Cam's (2:01's at Knox) and mine (now if I was as good as a driver as Paul!).
