I had to drive home with a broken collarbone after wrecking at Texas World Speedway.
It would really suck getting back from there.
Life Flight choppers were, sadly, a somewhat familiar sight. It’s out in the middle of the desert in nowheresville.

Can I join this Alfa clique of yours. The 124 Mazda is making was initially supposed to be an Alfa partnership so I feel like I’m already a step in with my ND lmao
Yeah, well it came out as a FIAT instead :laughing:

I do drives in my Fiata, too. We've invited the Miata club with us a few times, but the guys that show up have all been slow. One dude showed up with a slammed ND and a new swanky carbon fiber lip on it. He got pissed when the first cattle guard we hit bashed it up. Tough titty... We drive our cars hard, not hard park.

If you come up to Austin, let me know. We'll go for a drive.

Lmao slow in the head for sure. I left my shit stock. I like to believe they got it mostly right from the factory lol.

I didn't hear about that one, but found a picture since you mentioned it... Did they understeer off, or were not even paying attention? That road has a lot of wrecks, mostly just regular traffic. People in their own little world and don't even see the turns.

It's an amazing chassis for the money. Something is up with the roll centers, tho... Everyone says to just throw heavy sway bars on it, but I think that's a band aid. I think there's some improvements in the geometry to be had.

Unrelated picture since this is a picture thread. Was taken by a photographer buddy, but I was driving :)

Never got the story. We saw it after the fact. It looked pretty much unscathed. Just perched 10' above the road lol. It stayed up there for about a week. I never ride lime creek alone anymore. You just never know what craziness might be coming around the corner.
