Lecture overheard in penalty box: car in for a spin. Judge points-- "this is the front of the car. This is the back. Keep that in mind."
Middle of the night and still rolling. All three cars! Had some brake issues with the Beetle but it's rolling again.

Gah! The Cordia is ahead of our Neon! This cannot stand.
Rae has finished first Beetle stint and declared it fun! Mustang II is off in the pits at the moment. Fairmont was in but has returned to action. Granada too.
Mustang/mustang collision took out the SHOstang already, sadly!
ECR full 24. We're trying three cars: neon, 944, and Mike's 66 Beetle. Crazy! All going around thus far, though several cars are already out after <2 hours.

Belated 2011 update part 1

OK, way back in June our updates abruptly stopped when I turned lazy after connectivity problems at the Colorado event in the 24 Hours of Lemons, the BFE GP. The event is aptly named: High Plains Raceway is a wonderful, challenging track run by friendly people, but it is quite a way from metro Denver. Doctawife and I were guest drivers with Rich and Mona, otherwise known as Rocket Surgery Racing.

They have this way cool car, an old Renault 4CV that is now a center-seat racer with a midships-mounted VW engine driving the rear wheels. It was great fun to toss around the track and the rockabilly theme was fun.

In the end we weren't that quick but we did get the Flaggers' Choice trophy.

Spank brought out the Moke with a great river raft theme. IOE went to a Ford wagon with a space shuttle theme.

End thoughts: fun track, awesome crowd of racers, and I hope to return there sometime.

This has been idle too long. I'll try to start putting some posts here to recap the latter half of 2011 before we get rolling for 2012 races.
But first, a sneak peek of our new livery for the February 2012 race of 24 Hours of Lemons, which will be at Texas World Speedway in College Station.
