Video: Road Course @ Lime Rock Park, WK and WK2 SRT8's stretching their legs!

April 9th, 2012, SCDA event at Lime Rock Park. My first day at a road course and BostonDMD's first event in his '12 WK2 SRT8.
Amazed alot of trailer queen track cars.
Thanks to BostonDMD for showing me the ropes of the event.
We also had 2 other forum members there. RRGCSRT8 ( I think) ran in the novice group. Hopefully he'll have some video coming too and Mpetuch (sp?) missed registration, but took a bunch of photos.

So here's the video and thanks for watching!

Finally got to watch the whole video.
Thanks for sharing and nice quality too.
Good to see the Jeep SRT8 hold its own on the track with sports cars!
Is your exhaust system stock? It sounds louder in the video than BostonDMD's?
How many laps were you allowed?
How much did it cost?

I have 5" tips instead of 4" and a cold air intake with no tune. But no exhaust mods other than that. The GoPro Hero was enclosed in the waterproof case, so I wish I had known there was an open case that records audio better. The WK is not as quiet of a vehicle as the WK2. So I think alot more sound comes in the cabin too.

There were 4 sessions of 20 mins each. As a newbie, 20 mins per session was plenty. Much better than the 13 second runs of a 1/4 mile. You actually get to race for quite a bit and reach speeds faster than you hit in the 1/4 mile. We hit 120 mph on the front stretch and Lime Rock is considered a small track (I think).
The cost was $345 and Jeff Andretti (Mario's son) was on hand in class room sessions to help you with any questions you had.

Let me know if you want to do it again, as I am itching for another day!
