Mona Kills Cones

In the grid.

Ramona gets a chance to be driven in anger.


Cone Killer

After the start.

This past October, I had the chance to attend a two day autocross event. I’m embarrassed to say that it was my first time aiming my bumper at cones in about four years. That means it was my first event with a big hair drier bolted to the side of my engine. You know, the one that’s been there for over two years.

Oh well, better late than never.


Happiness is a New Helmet

Shoei RF-1100 in silver.

This is the 2nd helmet I’ve ever owned. I’ve suffered along with the same uncomfortable bargain rack KBC helmet for all of my racing life. It finally expired, so I treated myself to something a bit nicer.


Surprise Track Day

Jim took Sharka around the track.

I met some buddies at the track on a warm January afternoon. We had the whole place to ourselves, so in between zooming around, there were a few pix snapped. I brought my F3 film camera. I savored every click of the shutter.

Cars, Coffee, and Chile – 11/2010

Sharka on the track

I don’t manage to get out to the track to race around very often. And it’s even less often that there are guys with cameras. So I’m pretty happy to be able to make this blog post.

Webber’s 2nd win, Button’s 1st CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

Just a little excited F1 fan gushing after the 2009 Brazilian Grand Prix. As both a Webber and JB fan, it was a big race.


No Schumacher comeback

Schumacher isn’t coming back. His neck hurts. And my soul hurts. I was SO looking forward to this…


Schumacher is BACK!

The AP is reporting RIGHT NOW!!! 16 minutes ago, that Michael Schumacher will replace the injured Felipe Massa at Ferrari for the rest of the season following a health check. Cause, ya know, he might not be FIT to drive an F1 car. heh.
