  2. Can I use this? https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1992-subaru-5k-mile-sambar-4wd-genuine-japanese-mini-fire-truck/
  3. If I were to cross the border to race in Oct, I think I'd drive further south and not north (west)
  4. Some Alberta wheat farmer is probably driving to their winter home in AZ in the next couple of months, if it was packed and labeled in such a way they could drop it off at a UPS depot on their way that might get it done.
  5. BTW I'm still running my FREE 2013 mandated Optima battery in my street car
  6. "The Regulars" is starting back up their iracing league for the fall/winter, every Tuesday starting Oct 15th. Champers more than welcome: https://members.iracing.com/membersite/member/LeagueView.do?league=177
  7. It is, but I was looking in the league section within iracing and expecting to see this month's events. No problem.
  8. The league sessions in the iracing calendar seems to end in July....??
  9. It's driver silly season so I'm playing it cool and letting my agent do all the negotiating.
  10. So apparently my race line is SO professional that NASCAR thinks our incar video from 4 years ago at Mosport is an unauthorized screen capture from this weekends truck qualifying: Video title: Team Enigmiatic ChumpCar Canada Apr 18 Copyrighted content: NGOTS Qualifying - Canadian Tire Motorsports Park Claimed by: NASCAR Media Group That's going on my racing resume next time I'm looking for a rental ride! They're specifically complaining about 55-57min https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrVX69ghKPs
  11. Nothing stopping you from racing there this year https://racelucky.ca/official-race-dates/
  12. So ESPN is part of over the air free TV??? I had the sports packages just for racing (no interest in stick/ball sports).
  13. No ESPN because Canada. I did see the 1st half of Germany and it didn't suck (mainly because of the rain) but 2-3 good races aren't enough to tempt me to spend $120/yr when there's lots of regularly good racing free on youtube. F1 has lost its way.
  14. Dissenting opinion alert. I realised a couple of years ago I was watching F1 out of habit more than enjoyment. Whenever there was a pass I could never tell if it was strategy, tire degradation, DRS, engine token management or driver talent. I couldn't defend to my NASCAR friends (let alone non racers) why a world champion was starting with a 47 place grid penalty in an 18 car field or explain the difference between an MGU-K and MGU-H. Ignoring the sound issue, cars looked clunky and slow in the corners (just compare any video from the Stewart thru Shumaker eras at Monaco to any Azerbaijan lap). The cable package was costing me $10/mth for F1 & IRL and still not getting me IMSA or Lemans. So one fall I dropped it, now I sleep in on Sundays. IRL produces a 30 minute highlight reel on youtube 3-4 days after every event that gives you a real feel for the race and covers all the major turning points without all the commercials (including the nail biting last 5 laps at Mid-Ohio). F1 produces the same thing and it's usually under 7 minutes. In that time it generally shows the start 3 times and the commentators use the word "undercut" 6-7 times. IMSA has full races on youtube within a week (their Limerock race this year was epic).

  16. Wrong coast https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2002-mazda-protege5-3/
  17. You've had a mechanical fault in an epic 24hr race somewhere out on the lengthy Nurburgring circuit, you use all your driving skills to bring the car back to the pits but at the last yard the challenge proves too much. Luckily your crew and the commentators are supportive and sympathetic to your plight: https://youtu.be/6Yf-Muq04Ys
  18. You can get a licence through MCO out of Calabogie http://www.mco.org/wordpress/
  19. Or come up and run in the cdn series in Aug. https://racelucky.ca/official-race-dates/
  20. Anybody can do a BMW, somebody want a challenge: https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/mld/cto/d/gaithersburg-yugo-102-gv-1988-showroom/6876843565.html
