Recommended Posts

Folks,

Our 5th event of the year is coming up on July 10/11th, the points are super close this year,and anyone can easily take the championship.

I will update what the schedule will be, and who we are running with and when, in the next few weeks.

Hotels/motels are jammed right now,so start looking around or bring a sleeping bag!

Saturday night get together is being planned.

You can sign up right now to attend.

This should be the last hot one, as we have Infineon on Sept 11/12 and again on Oct 23/24, then Thunderhill for our final race on Nov 13/14..imagine Thunderhill and COOL weather!

Need anything let me know.

Thanks in Advance,

Tony Guaglione

No one really tests at Willow due to its cost of $225,but you can if you want to.

Track is really easy,and fast.

See Julies post.

Thanks,

Tony

Yeah, $225 is kind of steep unless you're from So Cal and plan on attending other practice days ($75 of that is a one time per year fee).

Team ESSE' #81 CMC car will be at Willow Springs but will as of now not run CMC races but only night Enduro with drivers Helldin/Graves/Steel in E1

 

I myself will be busy working tech and scales for Ryan/NASA SoCal.

 

Will be there early Friday to set up and help anyone testing.

And..If anyone needs a driver for sprint races...I am available..

 

And yes!..We need a few pit crew volunteers for Enduro...

No experience needed, just need refueling help..and cleaning windshield..If you happen to have some tires and brake pads to donate ..we will not turn you away..

 

Just think about the glamour to work for team Esse' !!

 

serious business or not...

Well you tell me..I am on racing Hiatus..sort of..

 

ok..

Carson,

I feel the need to make sure Larry the Cable Guy is correctly portrayed on this here message board. That would be "Git R done". I'll see if we can talk the wimmen into sticking around for the enduro, and if so we'll lend a hand. Us rednecks in CMC can hold their own when it comes to doing the pit crew deal.

 

Friday night, Thomas took what he learned in HPDE3 at Buttonwillow and got a second place in his heat race at the first ever Perris Auto Speedway road course, holding off some actual Street Stock class cars with his ratty old 73 Chevelle, we loving call the "Hell Bitch" (If you turn your back on her, she'll bite you. I even have the burns on my hand to prove it.) He caught all the much faster regular dirt track guys in the twisty bits. They just stomped us on the straights. Maybe we should replace the OEM valve springs froj 1973. He was running third in the A Main until some restarts sent him down the board, and then the carb flooded during a red flag, and he hit the wall, ripping both hood pins out of the core support, and taking out 2 tires. Our pick up crew ripped off a darn good two tire stop, but the guy who thought duct tape would hold the hood closed was wrong, so when it flew open again, it ended his night.

 

Looking forward to Willow, we may have to pass on CB friday, since we only have rooms for Saturday night. I've seen lots of racing at Willow, maybe that will be close enough?

See you in a couple of weeks.

Kevin

Really Guys,you don't need to spend the money and test.

Here's what you do, just follow me around the track for 3 laps and you will know the track..yup its that easy, just keep you foot to the floor and hang on ..You will love the last two turns!

I am not sure if that is a good idea Tony...last time everyone was following you, you spun out in turn 1, and it was not even your car!...If you guys follow me, you will see how capable your car is, as I make sure my car performs as well in the dirt as it does in on the pavement..It is all in the tire pressures...

I'll get the list today, but we definitely will be having some new faces showing up for this one.

Brady,as I see it we both must have tried to win the "who can get the most dirt in the car award" which I think you won.

Next time I will have a battery that actually turns the engine over,so I can start it back up, catch up and pass you all.

Damn that was frustrating...gotta go..have to get to my nitrous bottle filling appointment..

Hey, Thanx everyone for offering to help us out on the 3-hour nite enduro!!! I think I'll be running the 2nd shift this year, so I can finally experience the "Nite" part. We were just there a couple months ago while you'all were up at T-Hill, so I feel pretty comfortable with the track. And the car finally feels really good. (Kevin and Dave, please tell Thomas "Way to Go!"). I'll be there friday, saturday, and sunday to help anyone else out that needs anything. I heard that the reason all the motels are filled up is that there's a major Soccer Tournament going on that weekend, so if you don't have a room, load up the tent and the BBQ and join us at the track. See everyone there. Esse' #81...

I'm pretty sure I would have beat both Tony and Brady for the "Most Dirt in the Car Award." At least a coffee cans worth. Went off at the entrance to the sweeper, and could not see a thing as I did my 90-degree slide through on the 5th lap (kept the engine running tho). The flagger kept motioning me to get back on, but I decided to just back it up onto the pavement on the exit of Star Mazda. Parked it till the end of the race, which was a Good Thang, because as soon as the last car went by on the cool-down lap and I followed, I barely hit 30-40 mph when the inside of my car turned into a Sahara Desert Sandstorm! If I would have pulled out in a hole in traffic it would not have been fun. Esse' #81...

We have to take the dirt out with a shovel and bucket, and it falls off the car in large noisy chunks when it hits the trailer the morning after, oops wrong race car.

 

Thanks for the kind words Steve, I'll relay them to Thomas when I get back in town.
