2008 San Felipe 250
This was our first race in our newly
constructed 5/1600 car. We completed construction just a week before the
race, and had little time to test/tune/refine before finding ourselves at the
starting line shaking Sal Fish's hand.......
Our goals were:
First - have fun!
Second - finish the race without major problems
Third - finish near the top
Fourth - learn as much as possible
We succeeded in all but the third goal - we finished in 7th place out of 12 starters. But for a first outing and that being at the SF250, we feel that we accomplished a respectable finish. We learned a great deal for the next races, had a couple of minor (fuel system) problems to deal with, and had huge fun. Trevor did a great job driving the whole race, start to finish.
Thanks to Jason at
VW Paradise for building us an awesome race motor that ran all day at 6000 RPM
