JOHN! Dude! Miss you...


One of our Big dogs is donating his Sunday laps in the Red Baron to my cause. Otherwise I'm interning as Roving Race Reporter for the weekend. Look for it on my next resume!

41 Fine Sausage apparently strong-armed their shifter past the factory tolerance of the shift linkage. Repairs made.


24 Red Baron blowed up the clutch, repairs being debated


 


Some cars that have not started did not start because they did not arrive. However, some cars that did start arrived last night without registering online. We even had. a car register this morning. Better late than never.


 


Busy morning on the radio - as usual - but nothing out of the ordinary. Drivers getting the butterflies worked out and getting past the initial adrenaline.


 


Just about a half lap separating the top 2 cars with lots of battles going on all over the track. HPR is a nice technical track, everyone's having a ball.

Mr Phil O'Brien reports from the field that the #24 Red Baron 944 has dispatched team members for parts, and in true Chump fashion, the #200 Audi 200 team is loaning a mechanic to help with repairs

sort by position instead of lap time. also car 157 should be listed as 137.

sort button upper right corner of the window...

 

It is fixed now.  I was sorted by position. It was just messed up. There is a car #137 and #157 but both have the same team name.

Was lots of quiet time on the radio. Now chatter and working hard. Driver fatigue in the heat now an issue, tires heating up faster, budget parts coming off, gas, new drivers learning how not to drive... woooo hooooo!

Half the field is in the pits; some for gas, some on jack stands, some on trailers.


#99 found their wheel... and four new studs! (same 4 drivers, though) back on track after a trip to town for parts!

Lap times are getting lower: #197 F1 !ab's 2:14.5 is best, not counting the (tech issue) 1:45.7 of #20 Just Wankel It. Thirty seconds faster than the field? I don't think so...
