Guy Goes to the Races

Thanks to the Skip Barber Racing School and VetTix, I had the chance to ride along with a race car driver around Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis, Missouri. It was a combination of tight turns similar to Formula 1 events plus the long straightaways and high-banked turns of a NASCAR race. I recorded the event so others could appreciate the ride. What it doesn’t show is the incredible acceleration of the race-ready Ford Mustangs that Skip Barber Racing School uses plus the g-forces as you go around the tight turns.

Because I’m not very flexible and I’m pretty large they had to have several folks jam me into the seat. My fat head got stuck in the door until they crammed it in. I ended up having to take my helmet off to get out.

It was an amazing experience, one that you should take if the opportunity arises. Hope you enjoy the ride. I did!
