Thanks to Kip and Seven – what a great team and great camaraderie!
Congrats Kip on 2/2 first places in the SAARC races in E production!
First Sprint / SAARC race
I had a great start and drove my best, coming in 2nd in class, and consistently a second faster than last time at PBIR. I was disappointed though, in impound, when I found out I was under minimum weight for my car. I tried to explain that my finest engineered Porsche alloy tailpipe (which fell off in turn one) might only feel like 8 ounces, but in fact weighs 12 pounds. I frantically searched for other fine German parts that may have fallen off, but realized that I usually weighed the car with some more fuel in it… I gave up my trophy in the sake of good sportsmanship.
Second Race / FES Enduro ( 90 minutes, one mandatory 5 minute pit stop)
Another great start- I drove great, car ran great. We pitted with 15 minutes to go, and put 13 gallons of fuel in- I finished first in class, My first win! And weighed in 20lbs over.
Being fat never felt so good.
