Gary Grant of thegarageblog.com just did an awesome piece about my first race weekend.
He did a wonderful accounting the year long work up to get into racing.
Thanks dude. My wife read it out to the whole family.
Just a collection of images from today.
I took the cover off the car to let her dry out.
Notice my CASC # ia 2010-24 pretty cool eh. The exhaust. Flex pipe is nicely ground down.
I will be using a better nut & bolt setup next time. Maybe a double nut?
Need to get a longer tube for the fuel vent. We moved it during the race weekend to prevent it from venting on the track while in sharp turns.
My header. Its not bad, if I ever have the money or time I’ll get it coated. Engine shots.
We changed the belt at the track. During the weekend I was having issue with oil on the valve cover. The oil cap is suspect. Also was having starter issues. Notice the worn out wire.
Extra battery kill decal. Those old RA1′s impressed me.
Just for Burt and my lovely GT6 which I miss driving.
Sunday’s Group C “Historic” Feature Race.
Best Time 1:54.589 Best Speed 124.316
Part 1 and part 2. Got a meatball for my fallen exhaust which ended my session early.
So details will start coming out shortly, but it was an amazing experience.
The high was short lived due to a trailer failure on the run home.
My Laps results. Did a 1:54 at Mosport with a best speed of 124.316KM/H
