Any suggestions for a first timer ? Reportedly approx. 1.3 mile runs. 88' Camaro. Thanks, roverman.

Kevin and clan, "Mike" of Mojave Mile ? El Mirage is santioned by SCTA, also Bonneville. Unfortunately,IMHO, their safety rules are far beyond what other types of racing requires,ie., once you modify your vehicle for their safety requirements, it will likely be too heavy for other forms of racing. Cheers, roverman.

May 18/19th first race of the season,and it was as good as it gets ! Weather perfect, slight tail winds/cross winds, with no scrubbed races do to too much wind. "Long Nose" TR4 GT was very fast, not a lot of LBC's, in this form of racing. A few new records were set, and no one got hurt. Cheers, roverman.
