GT3 Body Kit on- first run on the track

I got the front bumper and side skirts on just in time to run at Heartland Park. What a great time...the car is so much better than the driver.

I have a lot of learning to do, but i have a lot of time on my hands- so they will know me well at the track next year. What a blast!

Your car looks great. I'm surprised that they allow you to run on a track without Brey-Krause roll bar extensions - here you need to have them unless you are short enough that your helmet is lower than the top of the rollbar (for obvious reasons).

I think I said it before but Arctic Silver looks good with the red rims.

I had some H&R lowering springs installed several months ago- still have the stock shocks for now. I love the look and it rides so much better, but you are on a constant lookout for "stuff" that may not fit under the car. (like squirrels and field mice)

The track only requires roll bars/hoops in convertible cars? After driving and talking with the driving instructors I think a RB extension (and a lid) would be a good investment.

I don't think I've ever heard of someone flipping a Boxster on track but for the street I've definitely considered it. I just saw the aftermarth of an insane wreckage, looked like two import guys racing.
