OCRC Event July 24

Fortunately July's heat has been relatively mild - we were out at the latest OCRC event last weekend...weather was very nice! Mildly hot, but completely bearable for July - in Irvine - with no air conditioning....
We were there with the number 72 car to test out the new 4-camera system! (it's soo cool!) Chris B came out to help us with the final installation and to make sure all the computer gizmos and hookups were working together. Thanks for all you hard work Chris!

Once things were hooked up, there were some computer checks....(looks like a group effort to look at the computer screen - like they knew what they were looking at...LOL)

Kelly C. was able to take some time during the day to help us get the video footage. He drove the car around for us, and gave us some good data and video! Thanks Kelly!

Sometime during the 1st time out, the car had a mechanical/electrical type of failure...it was an ignition coil of all things! Anyhoo, the guys tried to fix it at the track, but did not have all the parts, so Kelly just had to "drive around it" to finish the shake-down for the car. Good thing he's a professional!! LOL

Thanks to everyone for their help at the track on Saturday! You guys make all the difference!
Can't wait for the next OCRC event, hopefully they pick a cooler month!! HAHA

K1 Go-Karting!

We were invited to a great Ladies' Nite of
Go-Karting at K1 Speed....

Hosted by The Media Barons!

They had a super group of instructors;

*Craig Stanton

*Nathan Swartzbaugh

*Kelly Collins

*Oriol Servia

*Duncan Ende

They had a great introduction video - think "men in hot pants meets beginner photo shop" It was VERY FUNNY! It's a good think all the instructors have a good sense of humor...HAHA Especially since they all had to wear pink shirts - for the Ladies' *wink. wink*

The class was full at 30 students...all girls of course...and Craig Stanton was the "lead" instructor. He gave a very informative class session before the gals headed out to try their "skill" on the track.

After one session on the track - they divided the gals into 3 groups - everyone did a track walk. The instructors were great at helping the girls to visualize where they needed to be on the track to setup for each turn, etc.

After an informative track walk, it was time for round #2 on track with the go-karts! WOW, some of those gals were CRAZY! There were a few that had previous karting experience, and some that had never done it. One gal made an 8 second! yeah you read that right - 8 second improvement! Good for her!!

After a fun evening, there was a wrap up classroom session where the "most improved" got a VERY special gift basket....let's just say it was SUPER funny!! Some last photo-ops and a round of good byes ended the evening...

Can't wait 'till the next one...should be fun
