Hopefully 2017 brings me some better luck as I’m ending 2016 with two broken race cars. The “deal” I got buying my Van Diemen Formula Continental this summer ended up not being quite the deal. Quite a few more issues than expected, but hey, that’s racing. And today at the New Year’s Eve SFR SCCA member’s free test day at Thunderhill, I grenaded another diff in my Datsun. Sometimes racing old cars gets a bit frustrating, so I guess we’ve just got to remember the fun times 😉

Last weekend I had a few buddies racing at Sonoma Raceway with 24 Hour of LeMons, what a scene! 182 cars took the green flag on Saturday morning, and an incredible number were still running come Sunday at sunset, one fifty plus. Team Geritol (aka Team Blue Light Special) had a few issues, but still had the old Rabbit running at the end. A seized right rear wheel bearing caused an extended pit stop on Saturday that took them out of their Class title hopes, but they fought back for a top 120 finish 😉 An amazing Honda 600 and a couple of Vanagons were also pitted nearby.
