Holiday track day at CMP - any Southeast Pelicans care to join me?

There is a Turn One trackday at Carolina Motorsports Park on December 22nd. I have plans to visit family in the Hilton Head area for Christmas so I am thinking I will drag the car down and get me some "off season" track time. The race car is undergoing surgery, so I will press the 930 into service for this day.

Anybody up to join me?

Bump. I am signed up. Any other 930s in the area want to come out to represent, or is it all garage queens down there now?

Its a "Turn One Trackdays" event. Turn One is the "in house" organization that runs trackdays and DE event at CMP.

Hook it up Pete. It will be good to have a familiar face at the track.

Do it Kozmo...assuming the car is ready now

Old blue is coming down:

Looking forward to flogging the "Beast" one day but holidays are keeping me from doing to much right now . Jacob if anyone knows how much time involved in my car you do "watching from the side lines " can't wait to get on track with you .

Didn't see any of you guys at CMP. Perhaps the wet weather kept you away?

I dragged the 930 all the down so I figured "what the hell" - I ran in the wet. Good practice slippin' and slidin' - all at relatively low speeds.



I ran with a few of the "regulars" who frequent CMP, including a couple of blokes originally from the UK (but now making a home in Hickory, NC), one in a 991 GT3 and the other in a Nissan Z car. It was fun.

On the way down, fellow Pelican Patrick (aka "patina") invited me to stop in on Sunday night at his shop's Christmas open house party. An incredible facility specializing in custom sheet metal work (356 restos are a staple offering)...and the boss Tim has a tasty collection of 930s.



Did somebody say 930 collection? Oh yeah! A green '77 (or was it '76) with factory gold center fuchs, next to a '78-'79 in Aubergine.


Eggplant - dig it!



76-77 3 liter paint to sample slate grey


76-77 Minerva blue getting bare metal repaint


Patrick's Casablanca Beige '78


356 buck


Chassis restos


I have a bunch more photos, but this gives you an idea of the eye-candy that I was tripping over. Big thanks to Patrick for the invite, what a great way to break up the long haul south.

Merry Christmas everyone.

My oh my ! that 356 buck is a work of art , love to get next to that for a few weeks building some sheet metal . Great looking eye candy you were tripping over . Sad about the rain it finally stopped here on Christmas day been raining for 3 days straight in north Florida .

Merry Christmas to all and safe motoring
