A "schnitzer" 1602 Makes Its Return To The Track

I figure a few of you may be interested in seeing this car. Well, back in March I was given the opportunity to drive the 1602 at Road Atlanta by Jeff, the owner of German Autowerks here in Atlanta. Jeff was generous (and crazy) enough to let my inexperienced 16 year old self to take his toy out for an HPDE. Luckily I was able to keep it out of the many walls and actually get solo'd for my last run of the weekend. Unfortunately I didn't notice the oil pressure dummy light until a lap or two after it started flickering. The problem ended up being loose oil pump bolts which allowed a little bit of oil to continue circulating, so no damage was done to the motor.

By the way, I get a clear track at 3:25 if you'd rather not watch all the Miatas.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend as well. Jeff is also bringing it up to Vintage this coming weekend.

It also has new shoes and a livery now.
