Long Beach - Short Drive
The morning of qualifying has arrived, we do some last minute checks on the car and get ready to practice.
Ian's crew for this event consisted of JD aka Crown Royal, Fern aka Anferny, Tuned Bill from Indy Speed, and Tim the toolman, Ian's father in law. When they finished giving Ian their approval, his wife send him off to do what he does...
What does he do again???
All was going well, well except the traction issues. Everyone, and I mean everyone was having a hard time with the new pavement, which made the first part of the track very grippy. To make things worse, a driver in the practice group with Ian crashed 2 times, causing his practice to be cut short. This was his reason for not getting the track dialed. Oh well, that is racing as they say. His qualitying runs were solid, but not enough to allow Ian to make the top 32.
Ian went on to be a representative for Drift Safari and himself for the rest of the event.
After the qualifying was over, the crew went back to the pits to survey the damage an extra wide wall tapping donut caused.
Then the fun started...
What a trooper... JD
Just some parting shots to make some people smile.
Till the next time.
BTW. New swag soon.
