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.
