Well I still don’t have the motor back in my Crossle, alas my plan to race T-hill with SCCA this wknd was a bust. So I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the day than to visit my buddy Phil Mendelovitz who was racing at the Sonoma Historics! He brought his beautiful IMSA 240SX and his Ginetta G4 to run this weekend, and he even had extra crew passes for me and my wife (entry tickets are $35/each these days!). Great weather, great friends, great racing, just what weekends were made for. Historic Trans-Am, Can-Am, IMSA, just lots of cool cars and some really cool vintage transporters to boot.

This weekend was VARA’s 2014 British Extravaganza at Buttonwillow Raceway. Great turnout of Historic racers, as well as the usual All-British car race. I brought out my new ’74 Datsun 710 race car for its first outing, as the motor repairs for my Crossle are not yet complete. It may have been premature as I had lots of teeting problems on the 710, but we finally got some fast laps in on Sunday afternoon. Special thanks to Scott and Gus for helping out with a transmission R&R Friday night at the track.
