Race Days

My friend Will began road racing this year and it has stirred an interest in me as well.  I have the Cobra, a great race car, however I spent way too much time and money on it to put her at risk on a race track.  The TR6 on the other hand would also make a great car to road race as it is a great handling car.  As I complete the restoration I am performing slight upgrades to the car that are intended to strengthen it in case I decide to race her.

Here are a couple of pictures of a track day up at NHMS late October.  Congratulations to Will as he finished first place in his class.

In 2010 my wife & I took up Auto crossing.   We joined C.A.R.T. and our first event (June-6th) was a lot of fun.
