Topic: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

I defiantly want to get my car out to Gingerman in the fall next year for the 10th ann. race.
Everyone I know who likes cars at all is poor.

Any people want to team up and have a go in an 88 T-bird V8 with a 5-speed in the northern OH/PA area?

Car is rust free, runs, and is already in the process of being racified.

Come on over, check out the car, and let's go race!

Mike, what town are you in?  I have relatives in Brecksville & Strongsville, so get up that way occasionally.

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

Mike, we spoke at the CMP parade, I had the Red/White #21 T-Bird. If you have any questions or hit any roadblocks, feel free to drop me a line. Always happy to see another Tbird hit the track.

Best of luck.

Thanks Pat! Hopefully I'll eventually find some team mates and this thing can start doing some racing.

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

I'm not from the OH/PA area, but I have driven 3 of the April Lemons races at Gingerman - including a 2nd overall finish!  Our team disbanded (well the main owner sold the car) so I'm looking for a new team.  I'm 5+ hrs South of Gingerman, MI but I'll make the drive.  I'm a veteran of Enduros, pretty fast, a friendly driver and easy on equipment.  And I bring beer...

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

Interested...I'm in Vermilion, Ohio.  Definitely an idiot here...race enduro karts and do track days with my Miata.

Cool. Do you Facebook? I have a Group page set up there. Trying to heard cats to get together soon.

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

Hey Mike, I'm not in Ohio, but I am quite close to Gingerman in Michigan.
I would love to get my feet wet in Lemons by helping a team out in the pits.
I don't mind getting dirty working on cars.  I used to help out a sportsman stock car team back in the day at Kalamazoo Speedway.
Would love to get back in to racing a bit.  I would not expect to drive unless you needed me to, in which case I would come up with my own safety gear and would of course pay my fair share.  I can turn wrenches, cook, grill, drink beer, and drive a stick.  6' tall, 250#,  strong back, strong bladder.
Let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you. Dave

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

Hey,

Right now it's looking like we may be doing CMP Fall in place of Gingerman since it's looking now like there's going to be a LOT of people coming for the 10th anniversary. We'll be going out there to Spectate though, but CMP seems like a better definite in.

We are looking at Gingerman next year, so we'll Keep in touch! We may need an arrive and drive.

See if Burnt Rubber Soul is going to the 10th. They are good folks from here in Cleveland and I'm sure wouldn't mind another wrench turner.

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

Let us know if you need a hand.  We'll be at Gingerman for sure.  Right now we're a little focused on getting our neon to Chicago but we have several team members south of detroit that can lend a hand.

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

Still looking for drivers?  I am in Pittsburgh and have another guy or two looking to drive.

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

The Dumer ES Racing team should be at Gingerman with our 1985 Trans AM, should you need help wrenching just ask, I am pretty sure we would be willing to help out, assuming we aren't working on our own car at the time.

And as for driving, I personally wouldn't mind picking up a little extra track time. I used to drive one of those beauties when I was much younger. rear ended someone and lost part of the nose - it extends way forwards on that car. taught me a valuable lesson.

Re: North East Ohio idiot needs team mates

Yea there's a lot of front overhang on this bastard.

I'm hoping we can secure a solid #4 but if not we'll be looking for some drivers. We'll know more once the car comes back from the cage shop and magically becomes a "race car" which tends to make talking people into burning their money easier.

We are still one driver short of 4. We'd prefer a team member to make the build go easier (aka. $$$$$). but if it comes into august and we still are only 3 drivers we'll just have to abuse our credit cards and make it back on A&D. (hah! yea tell yourself that)

Thanks all for the support. Right now it's just waitin' on TheRollCageGuy because everything else is mostly mounting to the cage.

I will probably start begging louder as the date gets closer I suspect.
