Topic: Arse Freeze thoughts
No Sunday morning drivers meeting which seemed to happen the past few Sonoma races. Still some incidents & sketchy driving but not as much as races past.
I built a car for this and future races to stick my noob drivers in [#264 Volvo/Crazy Taxi] and other than my dad making contact with a car parked in the track coming out of 4 [blind turn coming down the hill, BAD place to park it] I felt they did a good job. The trans lost 3rd gear and was popping out of 4th and 2nd with an hour and a half to go Sunday but I sent it back out the last 20 minutes to make the finish. Sorry in advance if it got in anyones way. I just wanted both cars to take the checkered. I stayed up all night Thursday getting that car done.
The car I have been running for many races now [#411 Volvo/Daytona USA] ran great on Saturday but broke the wastegate bracket on Sunday and was puking oil out of the breather [40+ race hours + 250k street miles] so it was slower than usual. Had some intense battles as a result but no contact or spins. Sorry if the ass end stepping out a few times might have frightened anyone.
All in all a good weekend I think
