Topic: Tinyvette vs the Bernal Dads Volvo

At Sears Pointless last spring we had a great battle with the Bernal Dads Volvo 254, a car that has been racing in Lemons since the first race at Altamont. That battle went on for 7 hours, both cars on the same lap or just one lap apart, vying for the class win in a race that ran for 16 hours. So when Zep caught up with the 245 car on Saturday at the Skankaway race he was 1. surprised, because the...y are usually faster than us, and 2. determined to win this one. It was a good chase, lasting 3-4 laps, while passing and being passed by other cars in the 150+ car field. This one ended in our favor, but the Bernal Dads got lucky on this one too because their spin did not get them black flagged.

Mike, that's a great video.  I love that you run three cameras (sometimes four) and share all of this with us.

Side note, with particular consideration of the horrendous wrecks at Pointless this month, I strongly encourage you (and everyone else) to use the chinstrap that comes with the helmet!

We're running four cameras. We did lose one at BW and finished the weekend with three.

Re: Tinyvette vs the Bernal Dads Volvo

yes, this video had alot of win, but also alot of fail.  there is no doubt in my mind that I am a total asshat for not having my chinstrap on, but if the people checking safety gear at the hotpit entrance let me on without a chinstrap, how many other drivers were out there not up to safety regulations?  but once again, it was my fault and I thank all (especially my team) for the well deserved embarrassment.  It has ensured it will never happen again.

Im gonna go into a corner and cry now.

PS: I would love to have me and my fickle finger of shame become a Lemons meme.  please make it happen

Re: Tinyvette vs the Bernal Dads Volvo

Don't worry Zep, all the zing'g comes from a good Lemony place.  But remember, at the end of the day it doesn't matter if other drivers are up/down to safety regs.  Use your gear!

We need you out there.... rockin', sliding and point'n in the Tinyvette!

Re: Tinyvette vs the Bernal Dads Volvo

There are a number of times where the videos let you get a good look at the driver in the passing, or less frequently getting passed car, with visors up. I expect it is a pretty common practice.

Other than that, it still bugs me that Zep's gloves do not match his suit. wink
