The last round of the season was last weekend in New Jersey, I got one DNF (a bolt in the mechanical linkage fell out as we were rolling up to the green flag) and two 7th places. I finished 16th out of 32 in the championship.
I was 7th quickest out of 21 in both practice sessions on Friday, but in qualifying the left-rear king pin snapped and the wheel ripped off. Luckily I was able to keep it under control and avoid the walls, but the repair by amateur mechanics took a long time and it knocked us out of Race 1.
Cuz why not, yea?
But F1 has road courses, street circuits, and autocross.
Started 31st but with a fast car. It’s so much fun racing through a city park.
I had to retire from two of three races this weekend at VIR as it started raining in the middle of the race, and I don’t have the resources to change tires mid-race.
Not much of a race since I was running on 3 cylinders, but I put the video up anyways. No race commentary but I do talk about the weekend a bit in the intro. In two weeks it’s on to Watkins Glen!
I should have known something was wrong on Saturday when I couldn’t even keep up with cars in the draft. Today in Race 1 it became obvious that something was wrong, misfiring or running on 3 cylinders. I don’t really know engines but I wasn’t even getting into 4th gear (out of 4) on Road Atlanta’s long back straight.…
Looks pretty sharp, if I say so myself.
Not even sparkling wine, this is a 5%ABV malt liquor.
We were supposed to do practice on Friday but a stupid mistake loading the trailer bent both front wishbones, so we had to get one sent to the track overnight and lost the whole day. Today was much better, finished second but a long way behind a much older Formula Ford. I put in all wrong gears and we have no torque…
