PICS from BIR w/ NASA!

Thursday, May 27, 2010

I am a real race car driver now!

I now am able to race wheel-to-wheel at NASA events! Woot! However I have 0 races under my belt, because I was unable to complete or start the races...the Neon took a dump and would over heat. Cylinder #2 was pumping air into the cooling system, vaporizing the coolant causing it to over heat. Although, during one of our earlier sessions the neon did put down a 2min flat lap time, which gave me a track record.

Sunday, having no car to race, we took Michelle's mostly stock VW Golf w/ 196k miles on it took all the crap out of it, bleed the brakes, put numbers on it and ran it in "Time Trials F"...the little Golf threw down a lap time of 2min 14sec, a NASA record for BIR (never mind there were no other TTF cars out there, but that is besides the point!)!

NASA @ BIR this weekend.....

Apparently the staff is a bit light for this weekend's if anyone wants to come up and volunteer that would be awesome, working the event is the best seat in the house, next to being in the driver seat that is.....The ultimate street car shoot out is going on at the same time, so if you like to watch drag cars......Also spectating amateur road racing. there will be worker rides & track time touring. NASA also has a work 2 play 2-days and you get one day to play for free. Email me or Dave Royce (see below) for more info.

MOWOG 1&2 (first auto-x of the season)

Rounds 1 & 2 are over with...first auto-x of the season (except for the Novice school held 2 wks prior).  SMF (Street Modified Front wheel drive), again this year is going to be tough battle; I barely got 2nd both days.  Saturday, I left the Kuhmo Xs's on because of the temprature, Sunday I broke out the Kuhmo v710 race rubber.

I really need to get heavier springs under the car...
