I’ve concluded that my engine is down on power. Unable to pass a car in front of me despite getting much better exits at the hair-pin, and being 4.5mph slower than the fastest cars in the speed trap. But it’s hard to be frustrated when you’re racing at an F1 event.
So I re-uploaded a video from the last time I was there and put commentary which hopefully adds some insight to what it’s like to drive through a 15-car wreck.
The Ferrari 156, which took Phil Hill to the F1 World Driver’s Championship and won the Constructors’ championship in 1961, only has 70HP more than my modern Formula Ford.
I’m thinking about starting another channel with more racing game stuff, and focusing mainly on an RPG-style career mode of MotoGP 17 when it’s released next month. In the meantime I’m playing around with OBS recording and seeing what I can get away with on YouTube regarding music copyright. I doubt SEGA is going to…
Removing the bulky rear bumpers, airbox, and widening the sidepod air-intakes. Super excited for 2018, it’s about damn time!
I was supposed to start my F1600 championship this coming weekend at Mont Tremblant. Instead I’m staying home nursing a neck muscle that I pulled last Friday. I could barely get out of bed all weekend and even now it feels very stiff. The good news is that I was able to save money on my cancelled hotel room and the…
One of the coolest parts of privateer-racing a Formula Ford is knowing that what I’m doing has direct roots to the golden era of racing in the 1960's. It’s like keeping a tradition alive.
I’ll admit, it’s a really boring race to watch. But hopefully the engine sounds and my relaxed voice hypnotize you into watching the whole thing!
And I started my racing career here way back in 2001, but Pittsburgh International Race Complex is not just a great circuit, it’s really pretty too. They still need a few upgrades but I think they’re almost ready to host an IMSA/IndyCar level event.
A fast guy couldn’t get his car ready on time so he missed yesterday but was here today. He had a set-up pad and what looked like an experienced mechanic so I’m happy that my best lap was only 1.7 seconds slower than his. I fought with another guy and probably should have beaten him, but we nearly hit a few times and…
Only 6 cars in my class but it’s the first time I’ve ever won in a car that I assembled and ran myself! Race 2 is tomorrow!
