NMSP SCCA Track Night in America 10-21-21

We signed up for the SCCA Track Night in America event to put the Unicorn through the paces in an open track setting. If she dies, she dies. We started the day off by washing the car, setting the cold tire pressure and packing for the day’s activities. Gave the engine bay a visual inspection and set out on the road.

The drive to NOLA went well and took about 90 minutes or so. We signed in at the main gate and found a suitable paddock location. Next time, we will get there early and claim a spot under the covered area.

After tech inspection and a novice driver’s meeting it was time to take a few parade laps behind the novice group coach to see the line. “The telephone game” is what he called it but, unfortunately, I was towards the back and the message was lost.

After the other two groups ran it was time for the first session. I readied myself, a few cameras and the car then set out for the grid… Until I remembered to check the lug nuts at the LAST second. Purposely didn’t edit that out because it was a funny oversight and i wanted to share.


After the first session we had a debriefing with the group coach. After that, based on what the tire chalk told me, I made a tire pressure adjustment in the rear to see how the car responded.
