Anyone know the E30 team who broke a shifter?

 

I was full on into fixing my car when they came asking, so I stopped and and gave them a shifter with the promise they would return it after the race.

 

i think it was the 215 car?  I remember the guy saying something about "dead" in the team name, but then couldnt find any team named as such on the roster.  I'm not sure of the number either.  

 

This would have been saturday afternoon, 4-5pm ish

 

Anyways, I'd appreciate my spare shifter back.

Did an extra mountain bike follow anybody home?  Disappeared sometime Saturday, I think.  We were Paddocked right near the fence gate to the hot pits (the gate closest to pit in, center Paddock), so I'm hoping somebody just grabbed it in an urgent run for parts and forgot to return it after the dust settled.

 

1996 vintage "Raleigh USA" 21 speed mountain bike in Red/Maroon.  Not perfect condition by any means, but almost everything worked.

 

Happy to "sell" it for a fair "get me a similar pit-bike on Craigslist" price to save hassles with shipping.  Paypal accepted no questions asked to dmfred@gmail.com

 

Thanks!

I really hope these items that disappeared were really honest mistakes with misplacing or confusion when gathering things together.. I've always believed our racing community to be honest and trust worthy as I leave my gear and equipment scattered out free for the using, but please return policy...

 

It'd be a shame for everyone to be up tight and having to lock up or hide everything... fenced in pit stalls. Etc..

 

 

On a side note....if anyone saw one white nomex sock around pit #21... I'd like it back...no questions asked.. 

 

 

Have a great day.

Huggy, one of the guys from that team you loaned the shifter too came by my trailer looking to return it. The guy asked if i was the one he borrowed it from and couldn't remember where he got it from. I unfortunately was no help. I didn't catch his name or get any info from him, so im really no help in this situation other than to let you know he did make some sort of an effort to return. Im sure once he gets on the forums he will get in touch.

I got in touch with the right team - They are going to UPS me a new shifter.  All is right in the world.

 

Thanks!

I'm looking for the #4 piston and part of the block from a Saturn.  Lost near the last corner before the front straight.  

 

Seriously though it is amazing more things are not lost considering how many teams there are bringing all those supplies.  Half the time people packing don't know all the stuff the team brought and other things get mixed in.

After 8 races you would like to think my teammates would at least know where and how OUR stuff gets packed up. (sigh) When I go through the trailer after a race it's like..."WTH, who thought the potato chips went UNDER the tool box????

This sock fetish thing has gotten totally out of hand. We are clamping down on this sort of thing soon before things get ugly!

OH... I noticed a radio hanging  on the fence close to the middle pit entry... so around pit 15 perhaps. If someone lost one. It might still be there or turned into the track's lost and found. Sorry. I got side tracked and didn't go grab it to turn it in.

 

Not much help, but at least you know where it went.

I lost a Porsche Club First Settlers gray rain coat, a gray folding chair, and a pair of custom molded gray ear buds.  Was an expensive weekend for me.

 

So I came away good despite leaving my coffee travel mug and a bottle of sunscreen behind in the half-daze after the long night..! 

 

What surprises me is not that I leave stuff behind, somehow something is always missing after every race. What I can't get is why I never find any unknown stuff when I unpack at my garage??

Oh, dude -- I'd tell you "the sock fetish thing has *already* gotten totally out-of-hand", but providing details... well, this *is* a family-Friendly Forum.... >;)

I propose we setup a security baggage check for offenders.

 

repeat offenders will be shamed on that LED pit board.

 

 

That thing was blindingly bright at 3am... oh wait... maybe it was the yellow light... it's all a blur now

I don't think CC Staff could shame them any worse than what TSA will be doing to them on their ways out of the paddock.... >;)

I had a set of Alpinstar gloves walk away some time during the night. They are grey and green. Lost from the Rbank pits right by pit out. 

There was a set of gloves laying on the tarmac directly under start/finish tower. I bet that's them. I pointed them out to the tower official, but I couldn't retrieve due to it being a hot track

Was there a single nomex sock with them?

Someone was nice enough to lend a pair of Miata coil packs to one of our crew guys.  After the race we went to find the guys who they belonged to, but no one would own up to having been that generous.  I'm happy to return them if I only knew where to send them.
