I am a car fanatic obsessed with all types of performance cars and auto racing. This is my *evolution* from a driving enthusiast to race car driver of a Mitsubishi Evolution IX.

My First Laps at HPR

Posted by hammer On August - 3 - 2009

Some friends and I went out to High Plains Raceway for an open lapping day. HPR is a new racing facility located about 60 miles east of Denver, CO. This track is amazing, it has alot of elevation changes, great technical corners and a pretty long straight to test your wits. There were a huge variety of cars out there that day, mostly purpose-built race cars, but there were a few of us out in our daily drivers. I had fun following this Cobra around for a session, mostly just to hear the motor. Check out the Race Prepped Porsche at the end, I was going 120 mph when he passed me.

Push It

I got a great feel for the track and started to push a bit more later in the morning. I was hitting 120 mph on the back straight and I stop-watched a few laps around 2:18. My next visit to the track will be much faster as I will install my Tein coilovers and will have my new R-compounds.
