my name is jesse, i live in greenville s.c., putting me roughly in the center, on NASA-SE territory.
I am an emergency medicine physician, and father of 3, husband to 1, when not on track.
i eeked out 13 days on track from june through october of last year, and am an HPDE 3 currently.
these were all done in my '08 black mustang bullitt, (stock except for brake :ducts, lines, pads, and fluid)
an e.r. physician partner/buddy and i have just bought a used CMC car (CMC#18 ), from a seller in NASA-MA. we also just got a nice trailer, and a poker buddy has some warehouse space where we are keeping it, and able to work on it.
when/if he registers here, he will be double tap 2.
he has a green 08 bullitt, and is currently an HPDE1, but will soon be bumped to two.
because of the two bullitts, we are dubbing ourselves "double tap racing".
i hope to be racing the white car in cmc1 by this fall, or certainly at the outset of 2010.
kevin, i think, has more of a mind towards time-trialing.
for now we are sharing it through DE's, and then into the unknown.
eventually we see ourselves building up a pair of s-197's, in the next 1-2 years, to suit our own interests. but the sharing seems to be going fine, and has certainly warranted less heat from the wives.
we just brought her to Road Atlanta about two weeks ago, for a cold wet weekend. (the Hoosier dirt stockers we had for rain tires, worked great)
--it was kevins first time to RA, and 1st time in the car (2nd time on track at all).
--it was my 2nd time in the car, and 1st time at RA. (i backed myself down to DE2, for that reason, for the weekend).
overall, a great weekend, amazing course, and super experience.
just wanted to say hi, and look forward to meeting you folks at upcoming events. we will also be hitting nasa MA at vir some, and maybe at summit point some time in the distant future.
i am very glad to have such a budget-minded series, into which i can jump, i hope CMC has a long strong future.
