We lost a great champion today. Always a class act and represented the USA in international motorsports in a way rarely seen these days.
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 😉
Ever seen a 767 land on a race track??? Me neither. Quite the story, read it here.
Have you ever had your race car trailer stolen? Ever had it broken into? Worry about the neighborhood or storage lot it’s parked in? Well, a racing buddy of mine has a possible solution for your concerns. He helped start a company marketing a GPS tracking device that has gyro motion sensors in it that can send you live-time messages about the status of your trailer. I’m not affiliated with the product, just passing along a great idea.
