2014 IFMAR Worlds – Afterthoughts

October 5, 2014

Better late than never? I guess that is my theme for this entry as we all recover from the long world championship event. It seems everyone got sick after the event too which has led to a long recovery and hang-over. I ask my myself immediately following the 60 minute A-final event. So if you […]

IFMAR Worlds – Who Is Going To Rock And Roll?

September 26, 2014

I read an article once where Billy Easton was asked about racing and getting to the top. He claimed it was a lot like the song by AC/DC. It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll. It’s so true, it’s a very long path and some never get there. You […]

September 25, 2014

So what did you think about that 4th round of qualifying? So here’s the question.. Are you more concerned about Jared Tebo escaping tech with the body holes or the track being rained on? I get asked all the time….what tires should I run? This can be via text, email, FB message or just a […]

IFMAR Worlds – Vamanos Vamanos

September 24, 2014

“Have a good trip” …. “have fun, wish I was going” that’s what we hear most often when we leave for a race. “Enjoy your vacation” “can’t wait to hear all about it” they say, this comes primarily from office staff, family, friends. Most of you reading this are racers and you know how it […]

IFMAR Worlds Day 6 – Qualifying

September 24, 2014

It’s funny how once something starts it’s hard to stop it. Tebo gets DQed from round 1…. That was the never ending story on FB today from the worlds. In real time I’d say the whole issue took 30/40 minutes to resolve. Eventually they settled on it being a warning and Jared got to keep […]

IFMAR Worlds – Anxiously Awaiting Gelato

September 23, 2014

The prequel: In a parking lot full of silver rental cars (1:1) it’s easy to spot ours, we parked under a tree one night and the squirrels had a party – now I just look for the DIRTIEST car, covered in $h!t, seriously. I’ll backup a little, knowing Italy I toyed with the idea of […]

IFMAR Worlds Day 4 – Sunday Practice

September 22, 2014

Of course I’m an excellent driver. That’s the quote I keep replaying in my head while I’m driving around Italy with our little Fiat. I’ve turned totally local, I’m not waiting on anybody and you better not try and moped by me because I might just decide to turn. In the beginning I was getting […]

IFMAR Worlds – Day 3

September 20, 2014

Day 3 is over and done with and overall it was a good day. 2 runs of 5 minute runs and then the last was 12 minutes. Saw some ups and downs but the track remained very consistent which is a good sign. So far I think I see only 1 hole forming and the […]
