I think this was the first weekend I've ever been to VIR where I wasn't racing or instructing...I was merely a spectator. I went on Saturday to watch Jason Saini run in the World Challenge Touring Car race. Sadly, before the race started, they were forecasting a bad storm with 60MPH winds and large hail that was to hit right in the middle of the race. I decided I didn't want to watch that bad and left. Turns out it only sprinkled at the end of the race with no big storm. Argh. Probably not a big deal since Jason started last thanks to a broken transmission in qualifying and could only work his way from 16th to 11th in the race.
Today I went back to watch the Rolex race, which features GT and DP cars. Of particular interest was the Farnbacher Loles team. I'm running the One Lap of America in a week and my partner is Leh Keen, who drives a Farnbacher 911 in GT. Leh did great and ended up in third today. Nice job, Leh!
Off to continue One Lap preparations...
hope the trailer does ok... fingers crossed...
I tested it about 97MPH right before we left. Seemed GREAT. Well, after finding out the car wasn't wired right and needed an adapter box we didn't have and all that, it works great.
I'm thinking about getting it powder coated white when we get back, though. That damned shiny stuff will blind you out in the sun!
Anyway, will definitely put a pic on the blog and a link to you guys tomorrow or the next day at the latest. Didn't hook it up at all today, but will have to tomorrow!
