Racing plans for 06
 
Where is everyone planning on racing next year? Racing AV8SS, NASA, SCCA, ect?

Right now (as long as all the pieces hold together and the $'s hold out) I will be running the full OH/IN NASA schedule and am planning to do the AV8SS race at Gingerman.

Of course I may need some sponsor to step up and help (hint, hint) or I need the winning lottery numbers.

How about coming to CMP in March and racing a second AV8SS race, Dave? Help me talk Dean into coming as well. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Dave,

I heard of some place that was looking to sponsor a real race driver like yourself.....I think it is called....Groth Implement or something like that. :rotf:

I wish I knew what was happening for next year. I'm still going back and forth on which region or series to run. It's hard to run both series since you need different tires for each.

I was really leaning towards AV8SS but the NASA Nationals really have me intrigued. To race against some of the best drivers across the country would be a blast. :bounce:

The Midwest NASA schedule looks pretty good with a couple of Road America races.

I'm not sure about CMP since I have no idea if my engine will be done that early.

Hey guys, we plan on making it to CMP in March and hopefully a couple of other races... We've made some changes to the car (what else is new) Moton dampers and some data acquisition. During this season we would like to switch to manual brakes which will allow us to set the driver back by about ten inches. Then some light weight wheels and an FR500 intake and we should have a car that can run at the sharp end of the grid in AV8SS (the driver might be another story). Hope to see all you guys out there.

Dean, according to the "National" website you only need 5 points races to qualify for the Nationals. I really like what NASA National did to try and offset the cost next year. Do the Mid Ohio events in OH/IN to prep your car for the Nationals. Maybe that would free you up for some "other" races. :D

Thomas..you are the best freaking driver I have ever seen during my 5 years of open tracking. I'd put your skills up against anyone! :thumbsup:

Tony, thanks for the vote of confidence but we'll have to wait and see, open tracking and racing are two different animals (Saying that I'll still go two wide through the kink at CMP this year with anyone who's game :thumbsup: )

That would be an option but I can't afford to buy 2 different sets of tires. :( It would be fun running both series though. :cool:

Yes, you are right. I thought John was talking about more than just Gingerman. I just don't know if I will be ready for CMP in Mid March. I will say that I just bought an engine block for a killer deal thanks to Dave Diehl. :thumbsup:

Not that I like to start trouble, but I heard Thomas said you drove like a girl(not that this is a bad thing) and he could lap you at CMP. Personally I don't think so, but in order to preserve your honor, you might want to plan a trip to the south next March. :p

cobrabitn 11-29-2005 09:30 PM

I think you mean sissy Brian... :rotf: (He, he...that'll get him going) :D

I can't believe you all are talking smack and we don't even have the registration forms up yet. :p
