    what an adventure!

    we went to lunch and were too sunbaked to return. sorry for not stopping by. i have some good pics to email you but my card reader just died. will shoot em over soon.

    very cool to see the dp4 on track...we could tell it (and you) weren't 100% sorted.

    how about the pair of two-11s on the track? very cool to see in the US.

    what a weekend!

    lots of trials and tribulations, all are on my site on the dp4 and dp1/e pages...

    a video link is below.

    sorry didn't have more time to chat, it was just too crazy :)

    I'll be there on Saturday

    Just to see your creation in action. Will bring my DSLR and big lens for some action shots. Might have a few other coupers with me :O)

    I've been following you since the beginning on your website - VERY cool that you followed through . . . refined and refined to make it right instead of being content with "good enough" - Looking forward to the future! Nice work.

    ORP is just east of the dalles on 84

    it's a very fun track and we can run it in either direction.

    Re: thanks! :) it has taken a while...

    btw where is that new track? I wasn't aware that there was a new track in oregon. haven't been able to do any track days since I moved to SF 3 yrs ago.

    Re: thanks! :) it has taken a while...

    Hey dp! haven't been able to keep track of your progress in awhile but the dp4 looks and sounds awesome. May be someday when I get a real job... When you're down in the Bay area, let me know. I'd love to come out and say hi and check out your new stuff. I think I'm on call on 7/9-11!

    speedventures trackday and refuel races

    we'll be running dp4 fri/sat and dp1e sun.

    bummer about your engine... :(

    What event is that? It was perfect weather there yesterday. Too bad I'm at home now instead of still there, my engine blew up *again*.--

    it'll have to be next year.

    no way we can be ready by end of the month...

    but next year i guess it's going to be all pavement so better for us anyway.

    Pikes Peak?

    That's in my neck of the woods, so keep us posted if you plan to be out this way.

    that was only the car's third lap ever

    on a full-size track, with one of our own mcoupers (Karl) at the wheel and being very cautious. with some seat time and tuning i think Karl can find another 15 seconds out there. he is faster than me but i got a couple more laps this day (literally). on my 7th lap i did a 1:58 flat (the video lap is 2:02) still without pushing too hard so the car has plenty more in it. my wife got into 2:01s in 5 laps later in the afternoon.

    the goal for this first outing was to get the car out there, have a few different people drive it, see what needs work, etc. i'm pleased with how it went. now tuning and tweaking can begin.

    the plan is to homologate it for DSR

    but i see the best venue for it is hillclimbs and time trials, esp. in awd form. i was even contemplating pikes peak this year but they moved it up a month due to paving and we won't be ready. guess will have to run on full pavement next year :)

    thanks! :) it has taken a while...

    but it's been worth it. the car is a blast.

    coupe owners get a discount :)

    Interesting! - A Super-7 for the 21st century.

    I've enjoyed watching DP's development stages.
    Tempting as a dedicated track-mobile!
    Know if any competition is planned for the beast?

    Re: OT: Go dp!

    Reel 'em in, smoke 'em and eat 'em for lunch. All in ONE lap.

    Go dp! Yeah!
