S2ki Wake the Dragon 2016 Part 2


Part two of the coverage begins with our first full day in the area. We used this day to check out the Dragon itself since it was a weekday before the event started. Without a doubt this was a great choice by the group. The roads were a lot less crowded and it allowed us to enjoy driving and the scenery.

 

Besides the Dragon we hit up a couple of other roads in the area and we finished the night up with a quick photoshoot of Mike’s AP2 and Fernando’s NA1.

Everyone was prepping their cars first thing in the morning. Here Fernando is removing the blue tape off the car.

Taking tape off is a painstakingly long process, apparantly.

Historic Tapoco Lodge is where we spent the week. A great place with a lot of history to it. At one point it was owned by Alcoa and used as a retreat for employees.

Yup Fernando again. There’s just something about NA1 NSX’s. I think I’ll own one some day. But an NA2 with popups.

Stan getting down and dirty. After this we headed over to Deals Gap for breakfast then hit up the dragon a little after that.
