Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

Ok heres what I figure for Ginger to CMP.

If I can snag a ride with Burnt Rubber Soul up to Ginger I can bring it either straight to CMP or I can meet up to hand it off to Mental to make it the rest of the way down to CMP.

If I can't get a ride out to Ginger I can either pick up mental and bring him to the Nash somewhere enroute on it's way out of Ginger. Or can get the Nash from someone as a relay out of gingerman and move it on a ferry leg to either CMP or Mental.

I was thinking about raising my hand for the Nash for AZ but it sounds like you've got it covered. So, since we have enough drivers to make our stints a little short in #140, are there seats open in #49? How much $?

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

One of the most important things about taking the Nash is that for the few days/weeks that it is in your possession - You own it.  Anything you do to it is your business.  Except, altering the body - like a convertible, Sasha.   K got engine swaps - paint jobs - rewired - a transmission conversion and crashed/repaired on more than one occasion.   

Just remember to try to pay it forward in better condition than you got it. 


Special consideration to moving it around seems to work - ie if someone is dumb enough to drive it across 7 states for you, you should give them great consideration for a seat. 

Good luck to all of you!

I might want to take it for a few laps in the Nash just to say I did... It was more a "we got 6 or 7 drivers, if you're shorthanded” kind of thing, and it sounds like you're covered for roster. I'm still trying to figure if I should prioritize getting the Audi race ready, we may well have the personnel to warrant it!

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

I think there's a lot of confusion, what with all the disjointed posts here and on the FB page. Why don't the car claimers/owners create a single thread for each race to discuss getting the Nash to that particular track? You could also use that thread for ironing out details of who's driving, etc., if necessary. Make sure to add the date or at least the month of the race in the thread title to minimize confusion, since there are some tracks with multiple races next season.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

So autobahn and BFE are open.  We don't have to run these, but it would help the logistics. Rally Baby runs it for NJMP ending 5/15.  BFE begins 6/3 and Autobahn 7/22.  The current goal and commitments are for Thunderhill starting 7/29 and then back to the east coast for Thompson on 8/12 or CMP Fall 9/16.  That's a lot of time between races.

There's also the possibility that it will run the Chihuahua Express in Mexico. Chacho gave us a free entry. April 21-24. So, that could mean ECR, Gingerman, and CMP#1 aren't happening. Personally, I would love to see it run the Chihuahua, but I think it needs to see all the LeMons love it can get. Home is where the heart is.

I can assist with logistics at Autobahn but do not feel comfortable hosting it if it has to be race-ready in California 7 days later.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

Home is where the heart is, But free entry in the Chihuahua is pretty good too. Seems like ECR could still get done. CMP too if you don't get it impounded coming back in to the US.

Chihuahua Express would be awesome. Bob and I might be interested, but we've gotta look at costs and logistics. Even if it's not us, somebody should do it. ECR would still be doable, and there is another race at Gingerman later in the year.

If Richard Tomlin wants to get involved, we could easily truck the Nash to his place from ECR.

The Inglorious Basturds have signed up the Nash as our B entry for ECR. Anybody wanting to A&D can pm me. I'm just looking to cover entry, fuel and heaven forbid any parts that fall off. Naturally we want to send it on as good or better than we got it. Not sure how it's getting to ECR, but we will sort that out. Frank, if you want a seat, pm me, I'll save it. I will put a larger seat in it for sure. Most of the Inglorious Badturds are six foot or better and north of two bills!  WHAT A HOOT! We like hoots down here in Texas!

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

What do people think about setting up a Cash for the Nash GoFundMe or PayPal account for situations like this? Maybe an emergency travel or repair fund that Bob can release when situations become dire or travel schedules unsafe. For example, booking a car hauler to move the Nash to far-away events in a safe and timely fashion.
