Over the last few years I have been campaigning a C5 Z06 in various HPDE events around the Southeast. Growing up around cars (Corvettes in particular) and always having an interest in road racing, HPDE was something I had always wanted to try. Shortly after purchase of a 2002 Z06 a few years ago, I gave it a go at a small track in Alabama called Talladega Grand Prix Raceway. A couple months later I ran Road Atlanta with NASA, and was hooked.
LHE Motorsports chronicles my on-track experiences. I currently run in Time Trials with NASA Southeast, as well as select track days with organizations such as Chin Track Days and Just Track It.
Because there is often a ton of internet information regarding performance modifications, but just as often a lack of explanation or detail as to why a certain path should be taken, LHE Motorsports will also explore areas for car improvement, detailing what works, what doesn't, and most critically, why.
