Topic: NHMS Hooptifest photo/video request

During the first hour and a half Saturday I managed to launch the 410 Fireball Integra off the Turtle at the bottom of the down hill section (turn 8?).

Frankenphil said all four wheels were off the ground, when I questioned him he said at least 2 were off. Any one catch it on film?

TIA, Fritz (now known as Turtle)

Sorry, no video, but a year or two ago I was coming up on an E30 in the same spot and he just kind of overcooked it, went straight and launched/disappeared over the edge! Im not even sure where you would end up or how you would get back on track, but I can imagine he needed some new pants! Sorry, just re-read your post, i thought you launched the car over the edge of the track, not another car!

Sorry for the late ask, but was the dnf racing miata anytime near you when this happened? if so I'll look through video footage.

If you are talking about the left hander after the treehouse.  That was probably me...  Wasn't as bad as you'd think.  I returned about 100' from where I went off.

Of course, hitting the bump at the apex of Turn 10 could be even worse.  Check out the link from 2012 in my sig (I was the flagger)
