    Default Photos from Memphis International Raceway

    They were low speed pace laps, so no helmets required and passengers were allowed

    That looks fun! Nice looking Caterham. Big grins evident!

    I don't know how you do it as I found at speed I needed eye protection of some kind since the air speeding past irritated the eyes - ended up using goggles to give me some vision back.

    Whats happening with your headlights? They look black head on but there does not look to be any cover over them side on? Are these some special day light running ones?

    Will you be taking the next step to full on track days?

    Mike - I'm not positive but it looks like he's got some clear safety glasses on.

    Nice looking Caterham, looks like you're having fun!

    Could be Bruce, I thought they were eye glasses like I wear but maybe they are safety glasses and I just need a new pair of glasses myself!

    They are LED headlights. They are super bright.

    My kid had her regular glasses, I had a pair of safety glasses. They were OK for the wind but we kept getting pelted by rocks from the tires :-/ That last photo she's trying to scrunch down to avoid them, but there isn't much room for scrunching.

    Eek...thats not good with rocks coming at you. Probably a good idea for helmets then in that situation to protect you.

    and these aren't even the good sticky tires. Eventually I'll have a set of Avon slicks on there for track days.
