Congrats to DBG and inverted, Doug and Mike for the win! Had a great drive vs Mike in the first hour.

that was the first hour when I was driving. . I was told I was in 2nd when I handed it over to Gregk. I disagreed so I fast forwarded it.

I'll make a slower version later with just the good bits.


We had the lead with 15 min to go at the end, but a torn valve stem took us out. We were able to steal a tire from my Daily driver and managed a 3rd.

as James said, we saved 3rd! could have been 4th! lol. if you ain't first, you're last!

And Kevin! :first:


I was told I was in 2nd when I handed it over to Gregk.

Mike said the same thing - you should have been in 1st. Didn't matter in the end.


I disagreed so I fast forwarded it.

Nah, you fast forwarded it so you wouldn't look slow. :boink:

Actually, most of the track felt slow - it was much icier this week. It got worse during my session. I eventually figured out this line through the chicane that felt like I was driving like a little old lady, but I kept passing people who were driving in a far more spectacular fashion, so I kept doing it.

Gregk pulled off a pass on me right before the white/black flag. The bugger. Had a good battle with him first, though.

Yeah that sucked. You guys really drove the wheels off that thing. Literally.

I was going for fun and entertaining. Almost rolled the car at one point. Waiting to see the video of that.

That #42 car was so pretty before the start of the first ice race. She looks a little rough now.

We had a couple of incidents in the 2nd race. Here's what did most of the damage:

We're trying to forget the previous incident a few laps earlier, which involved some dirty driving. Not by us...

Bumper re-attached and body work via hammer. I'm thinking of opening a body shop.

Notice when they pull off, I think it was pat first, then Frank. ( in video )

looks like Pat in the photo, Franks helmet was white.

I was having trouble uploading my video (#@$! Rogers) so I took a page from Greg and sped it up 4X. That made it 4X smaller. Added some goofy music and:

March 5th, 2014, 10:24am
Yeah but on the other hand you didn't notice the hits. There were at least four of them. Both times the Corolla got by me at 1/2 he did it by bouncing his car off mine lol. (Was back and forth with him for a while!)

I have a feeling things are about to get real with the series... if this season was any indication. Having 3 races vs just 1 was awesome.

None. Ice race cars are not permitted to be street legal.

Snowcross okay, but you do run the risk of taking a bumper off.

street legal and mike driving illegally are very different things.

does this mean they prefer you don't drive your street car on the track (for insurance/liability purposes?).

don't some of you guys buy used cars, drive them there, take plate off, race, tow away in spring? that's what I plan to do.
does it need to be EXTRA SHITTY?

Doesnt Greg do that with his Scubara?

Can't be plated or insured for Ice Racing, Snowcross it can.

It can be extra crappy, but still has to pass tech, so be aware of that.

3 Ice Races was just the right amount. Most cars won't make a 4th...although we WILL be doing a 4th day most likely next weekend. Greg really wants to try out the transponder system.

Yep, trailer it in early January and get rid of it late March. Towed either to storage or

4th ice race? Really!!!

Don't listen to Doug, he know nothing.

Clarification - I use 'next weekend' as in the weekend after 'this weekend'.

Either way, Greg is going to cancel next weekends 4th(March 15th) Ice Race due to lack of interest. Granted he only asked me, Steve, Jay and Richard.
