Re: Volvo S60 T5 at Brainerd Intl Raceway trackday (phuz)

Yeah I hope I can go up again later this year with a Corvette club, preferably with cooler weather too... and as soon as I have some spare time, probably this weekend, I will put up some pics of the exotics day too... that Ultima GTR was HOT.

Aug BIR trackday

Had another BIR trackday yesterday, lots of fun, got a reading of 128MPH on the GPS at the end of the main straight. Lap times also down 2-3 seconds, probably due to driving better, having a 3-inch exhaust, and adding the Volvo OEM brake cooling ducts discussed in the R forum (they fit T5s just fine!)<p>Anyway, on to the pix:<br> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3862.JPG/IMG_3862-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Ferarri F355 cabrio<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3871.JPG/IMG_3871-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Yep, the Ultima GTR was back<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3880.JPG/IMG_3880-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Merc SL500... the only "slushbox" I've seen on the track<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3892.JPG/IMG_3892-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Mazda Miata ... surprisingly quick ... oh wait it has an aftermarket supercharger! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3918.JPG/IMG_3918-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Ultima GTR's big V8 (carburated!)<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3923.JPG/IMG_3923-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>My ride... brake cooling spoilers in clear view under the front bumper<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3926.JPG/IMG_3926-full.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>Passing some spec racers...<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3934.JPG/IMG_3934-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Ultima GTR on the straight<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3939.JPG/IMG_3939-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Nice shot of a spec racer<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3943.JPG/IMG_3943-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Passing a mustang and some spec racers...<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3948.JPG/IMG_3948-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Instructor's spec racer, apparently approving of the photography or something <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3949.JPG/IMG_3949-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>My ride again on the straight<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3950.JPG/IMG_3950-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Mustang on the straight<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3951.JPG/IMG_3951-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>The other Mustang<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3965.JPG/IMG_3965-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>More Ultima GTR<p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3968.JPG/IMG_3968-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>S2000 with AEM intake and nice loud exhaust <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3969.JPG/IMG_3969-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Just in case you hadn't seen enough Ultima GTR yet... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://dadolphson.googlepages.com/IMG_3976.JPG/IMG_3976-full.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Passing some more...
