I think its safe to say that the Irish Road Racing and MANX TT riders are the craziest two wheelers in the world. The riders slicing through Macau concrete jungle are almost as insane.
Its off season for us. Not much on the docket. Dan is working away on his Caddy, Adrian on his motor build, I’m looking for a new car, Mauncho is shopping for items for his new ride, and a few other things in the works. That’s about it. Nothing major and no real progress in the last few weeks. The start of winter is usually the lull before the winter builds start going. Headed over to Dan’s in the winter beater. The Subie will not be seeing summer anymore, good riddance. Still dumped though. :)
Dan and Geoff decided to build on a smaller scale. 1/24th to be precise. I sort of wanted to join in too. But I have issues with patience….I have none. I’d end up tossing the kits out after a few days of painting, gimme Minichamps and Autoart die-casts over these any day. I MIGHT end up changing my mind later though.
Dan bought a 993 GT3, Tom Kristensen DTM car and a VW golf. Geoff bought a Mike Rockenfeller DTM car.
Not a whole lot was accomplished as time was taking up watching Pacific Rim. Engine components mostly.
James Courtney escaped from major injuries this weekend after Alexander Premat plowed into the side of his car. Not much blamed can be put on Premat though. Once you leave the track at that speed at that corner, you’re pretty much a passenger.
The Goodwood Revival is THE historic racing event. Brings back the days when driver had to tip toe cars around the track. Add rain into the mix, and you get this. Kenny Brack, something about Swedes that make them so good at going sideways.
Video of Brack going a bit more sideways.
Also added Chris Harris kickin some ass.
Perfect daily. LINK.
I’m liking these new Citroen WTCC cars more and more. Big wheels, big wing, big flares. Our kind of recipe. It really is looking like supertourers 2.0. I’m not sure they’ll be as fast, as they are no where near sophisticated. But it’s a definate step up from S2000 or NGTC spec. Also what’s not to love about throwing sparks under braking? I assume they’ll eliminate that eventually, its just awesome watching it now. The glowing centre exhaust ain’t half bad either.
