      (I put this over on the RR forum, but I think all CA shifter drivers should see how fun a shifter can be on a real track.)

      How is this for a hoot  –  three versions of the same race (group 19, Heat #2) from the Super Stock #1 (Mike Lagrone – kart 16), #2 (Doug Ring – kart #8), and #3 (Mike Korody – kart #722).  Laguna Seca, 72 degrees, clear skies, 27 shifter karts start the main – what could be better??

      Mike, Mike, and I are running the NCK Super Stock class – 400#, ’99 cylinder, open Nasau panel.  #6 is running in the SKUSA class – 385#, either cylinder, all CIK bodywork.

      Watch all the way to the end – the last few laps in particular may have been the most fun I have every had racing a kart.

      We were running laps in the 1:40 – 1:41 range, with puts us faster than almost all street cars (only a couple of Porsche’s and the Corvette ZR-1 are faster).  I just love talking to “serious” PCA drivers at LS or SP or BW, and showing them that our lap times are faster than their precious sportscars!

      Doug, that was an amazing 1st lap in the 3rd video!  I haven’t watched the end yet, but you are catching everyone like the dinner bell just rang (and you are a STARVING lunatic)

      Edit…

      Oops.  I guess that was one of the Mikes in the 3rd vid.  Don’t know the guy, but he was flying.
