Thats pretty sweet. You are really sliding around that bend. Is this an oval track? in the US?

I had a race this weekend, and my phone for some reason stoped working as a modem.... but anyways, I finished 7th (out of ~25). Its in Europe, Czech Republic (thats where I am at right now) I am only 15 so I have to race the slowest category (up to 600cc), but it has ~150hp (yamaha R6 motor, kit, and better exhaust) and "AWD". It weights only about 800pounds, so that kind of makes up for the horse power. It has 6 gears (sequense), and goes like 100mph. The tracks are not oval by any means, there is a lot of tight turns actually.

Any other questions?

What would that race be considered? Just "dirt track", or is there something a little more formal?

They call it "rallycross" here in the USA. Autocross is going around cones in a parking lot. I am actually in the process of building one of these.

Great... Now I want one.

Are you fabricating yourself, or buying parts?

i'm buying parts like the steering rack and coilovers, but most every thing else i'm fabricating and welding. I have to "fill in the blanks" so to speak, since there are no metric tubing sizes here in the US. The plans were purchased from Australia.
