New Toy

Finally, over COVID and got to go play with a new toy. The real new toy is still not here. We are supposed to get a new Ray Formula C car, but like everything else it has been delayed and delayed. We got this car, a Van Diemen, and my best friend who hasn't been in a race car in 25 years is jumping in the deep end. He raced Formula Fords and now has a car with full ground effects. First weekend he spun out a few times in practice. Last weekend he is starting to get it figured out and the times are coming down. A few more weekends and he should be ready to go to Formula Racing Promotions a group that host Formula car races. 1133336870_Summit6-18-22.thumb.jpg.e31a11cfd9ccf4bcb36d711852b6421c.jpg

Good to see Gus is earning his keep. I see this car all the time in his shop and hear that the driver is getting along well with it. I may take a dip in the FC pool one day :)

I wish I could drive a F/C car. I am 72 and haven't raced in way too many years. Leslie hadn't raced in 25 years and that was regular F/F. Three races back and he is turning competitive times. This past weekend he set fast lap in qualifying and finished second. Starting to get comfortable. Still needs some time for things to slow down.
