Here are some pictures I took at the grid and then later in the day / evening. Sorry if I didn't get your car. There are several pages of pictures and more are loading now which will take another 4 hours to upload. These are full, hi-res pics. If you click on the image you can select various sizes inluding "O", the original, hi-res file.

You may use the images for personal, private use for showing family and people you work with how suspect your judgment is. I'm not a pro photog but I want credit. ANY OTHER USAGE requires credit to Gator Chump Jim McGovern and a six pack of Bass Ale at the next Chump Car event that Turn 1 Trailer Trash #81 Miata is attending so John C and I can make some Black & Tans.

I think I gave the dude on the left a cigar after the race. I forget his name because I was thirsty and had trouble communicating at that point.

YES! It was awesome and enjoyed by many. Including 'Olga', whom Matt kept feeding it to. Anyone have a picture of Olga?

Great pictures. And they confirm our suspicions that it was the evil Axis teaming up to reduce Piggy's help for the Allies. No sign of that claimed heavy oil fogging in those pictures...nice and clear like the view thru our bug splatterd windshield!

We had a great time racing everyone even if the clutch hydraulics failed at mid-race, gearbox lost almost all of it's oil in the final few hours, battery died and the engine is rumored to have been imitating a proper two stroke Saab. Plus it was neat to have our friends show up in the Minis to crew :)

We also had a great time at the late night Saturday party, and sorry to those who complained the music from our chumperhome was to loud.

A few of our own picture, including a picture of the aftermath of a collision with the wall..

We have video of you just before you hit the wall. Showing the 2 BMWs playing out on the track.. you can see the front of your car in the rear view.. After the pass. around 3:30 into the video

Wow, we need to work on that body roll, that is after we straighten the frame back out and get the radiator away from the engine.. Thanks for the video.

How did your front tired wear. Id also think you need to add camber. The Mitsu GT3 welded 2 sway bars together and it seemed to work very well. Re a cheap way to get the body roll down.

We have 2.5 degrees of camber in front, tires wore flat, last race in homestead we had only about .3 degrees and the outsides wore badly. Also we lowered it about 3" all around compared to homestead, were thinking of taking it down another inch or so.

rear camber is at about 1.5 degrees but is not adjustable at all due to a complicated rear suspension system. They make kits for it but they cost more then we paid for the car.

Yes, yes you did.. and it was amazing! I seem to remember re-filling the generator with gas while holding it between my teeth. What could possibly go wrong?

I like that the signal light is blinking the whole time.

That would make for a good theme. Dress like a bunch of old ladies and drive the whole race with your signal light on. :D
