Hi guys, sorry I never formally introduced myself here on the forum. Bill from East Hampton, CT. Friends with James and Jenn (Greenblurr93). I have a 2007 G35x sedan for my winter car and the 2007 Corvette Z51 for the summer. You guys are a fun crowd and I look forward to future NICO events :)

Link to album:

If you auto crossed on Saturday, there is a very good chance I have shots of you. I tried to get everyone I knew was on the forum. They are from pages 18 to 28 in the album in REVERSE ORDER. So if you find yourself, start further towards the end of the album (images are numbered in sequential order), and scroll towards the beginning in slideshow mode to see some action.

Here's a free wallpaper:

The one video the munchkin shot. 2 laps and knocking down a cone with a quarter panel :chuckle:

Anybody get a shot of me mowing down the cones on my 3rd run? Would love it for wall paper to remind me to turn faster :naughty:

Rip'n parts off the cars, and blow'n out tires had nothing on our first three way tandems tho. Thanks for let'n us have a blast on the track, and i hope u guys had as much fun watching us slide as we did doing it.

Here is the best pic iv found of my coupe so far.

HOLY DAMN, that pic of the Silvia Drift Hag is freaking AMAZING.

You guys rocked that s*** all over the track. We had a blast watching, and I hope you guys had fun tearing it up.

We're working on a full article, but for now, let's see some more pics, and tell us what your favorite part of the weekend was!

p.s. Guess which "other" forum doesn't do stuff like this? :poke: :poke: :poke:

Hey guys, thanks for uploading all the pics! Its great to see everyone and their cars in action! Lots of good times turned on the autocross as well!

I'm bummed that the go-pro video didn't come out. If anyone has any videos of me drifting the vette...please post me the link so I can grab it. It figures that the one real good run I had, there aren't videos of :facepalm:

Aw man, I really wish I had gone over to the fence for that angle on the drifts. Awesome shot.

Here's a couple more of you twisted99s10. These are all from the same pass.

Loved that photo spot for the Altima/Sunday nico crew. Beasy great pics man. I looked through most of your photobucket pics. I think I have a new sig pic from my autocross runs.

Thanks to everyone who put in work shagging cones in the heat, recording times and organizing the event. It was a great weekend. I will be back next year with some more people.

Also Beasy, we're you shooting the autocross at the tent on a tripod? I looked at my series of photos and it seems to be framed the same. If so I'm thinking of doing a little photoshop work and stitching the 6+ more frames into one for a sequence pic.

^Not from a tripod, but I was shooting as if the camera was on a tripod for that very reason. You should be able to do exactly that and get a nice sequence laid on top of each other in one shot. There might be a small amount of left/right movement but it should be minimal.

More pics coming, I have all of Pete's from Saturday since we dumped them from his SD card onto my computer. Uploading now...

Here is the link to Pete's shots from Saturday. He is a member here (altimasleeper) but he never logs on, I'll try and get him to load up the pics from Sunday as well. He has a bunch of auto-x shot in the same fashion as mine, random debauchery, and bikini contest in here. I didnt really go through all of them so not sure what else is in there.

Thanks Bart! I shaved some rubber off the ventus V12s but it was well worth it. I hadn't autocrossed in 2 Years and I know what I was missing.

I just powered it on and hit the record button. I assumed it was already set in the correct mode. Red light was flashing, so I don't know.

Had an awesome time! I have a bunch of pics I need to go through.

It was great to finally meet Brian. He's way less of a douche in real life than I would have expected, and I'm not sure if that is good or bad (ha!). Big thanks to him for working the track and tech for so damn long.

Thanks again to Ray for dinner Saturday night, even though it meant you stank everyone that was staying in your room out so they had to come to mine. Also thanks for picking me up from the airport.

Thanks to Joel for obviously working the track like the Boss he is, but also for letting me use your sunblock. I'd be blistering and vomiting if it weren't for that.

Thanks to Andy for the keg. You still haven't said how much I owe you ;)

Thanks to Jesda for driving me to the airport.

Thanks to Torry, Seanzy, Ray, and Greg for letting me thrash your cars on the track.

I'm probably forgetting some stuff, but let's be honest, there was a lot of partying, so some details are bound to get left out.
