Road to ProAm cont.
We have been working on all our cars to ensure a smooth tech process, but none more than Chris, he has been rebuilding his SR20 that was blown at the last Capital Drift event. This has put extra stress in him, so the team has come together and helped him get the other stuff in his car up to par. We are installing all new gauges, due to some crack head theives stealing his tach, oil and water gauges. Assholes. We have also started on some wire cleanup, for a less ghetto look. It worked before, but was kind of needing some cleanup.
It was not long before the assembly of the new block was moving along and time was aswell. This is at midnight Saturday, I week before the main ProAm competition in Seattle.
Tomorrow we will continue to get his car ready. It seams like when you are serious about any sort of racing, there are always things that are just making the competiton at the last possible second. That is our life.
On the other side of the getting ready for a large event, like this professional series, has definately been a lot of work when you are a privateer. The simple things like where we are going to stay, where can we safely park the racecars for the days we are in town, all add to the stress, and cost of the event. Sure a drift event a few hundred miles away is not like travelling across the country, but it is almost the same requirements.
For all the work that is put into the preparing for, and driving at the events, there is soneoe else that puts in a lot of work aswell, sometimes without the same appreciation. It is our wives, girlfriends and family members. These people are our true devoted fans, crew cheifs, and advisors. With a large event like this, the added stress is on them more than you would know. To you guys, we say thank you.
