Here's a few snippets from my stint at the first MCO Ice Race. A couple of fun passes, a collision (actually five in a row), and getting bumped out of the way and then passed.

#1morelapftw 89 is clearly the hardest to pass, you guys are quick and always in my line, had some good battles with ya. The track was cool, some big ruts that add good traction, but also risk knocking the tires off the rim if you hit them wrong. Fingers crossed for big snow this week.

FPOS
March 2nd, 2015, 08:29am
good stuff greg! how trashed was the track when it was all said and done? really hoping it held up!!!

this week looks ok except for maybe Wednesday when its supposed to go to 0*. hopefully the snow the day before provides good cover....

1Morelap
March 2nd, 2015, 08:34am
it's got ruts, but the snowbanks are still huge, so really not a big deal.
They asked all the drivers afterwards what they thought about the track and if they want to race again next weekend, they all said yes loudly.

Except for mechs02, he said no. something about family and kids, I didn't understand.

FPOS
March 2nd, 2015, 09:03am
I suspect family was being used as an excuse. my money says you guys scared him and now he thinks ice racing is too dangerous :P

good to know bout the track. but seriously, like anyone would say no, not like any of the cars used are family heirlooms or sumshit!!!!

dbg
March 2nd, 2015, 09:08am
Just be careful crossing the ruts because some look nearly 3" deep. You really want to hit them with your wheels straight, not drift over them. Lots of people were going off with flats. One car had two badly damaged tires.

It's a good thing helmets are mandatory; I kept banging my head on things. The constant impacts "fixed" our suspension - it no longer goes clunk in the front. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

FPOS
March 2nd, 2015, 09:11am
no noise is good, right? RIGHT?

quick question bout car prep: clearly these races are a contact sport, incidental of course. what's the thinking regarding airbags? especially seat mounted ones.... connectors pulled or systems left in tact?

we have always pulled all our airbag stuff out/disconnected them.

dbg
March 2nd, 2015, 09:48am
We pulled ours.

Yes there is contact, but really it's more bump-and-grind. You're not going that fast. You are unlikely to pop an airbag... but better safe than sorry.

the hardest hit you may take is if you get pushed into/hit a hard bank.

The hit that kevin gave us which pushed us into/onto the bank was a big one, but not terrible. would the airbags have popped? not sure, but not worth the risk.

I might have 1 or 2 seats available in the former No Limits delivery car this Saturday. I was supposed to be out of town, but had a work trip postponed until Sunday.

1992 Mazda 323, auto, beautiful, smells great. She's not the fastest, but (knock on wood) has been reliable and fun in the snowcross series. Cost: pay your share of the entry + $50 to cover the wear and tear on such a pristine automobile?

Yeah, gotta love slower cars for blocking purposes. Several times in my video you'll hear Aaron: "Ok, Clive's behind you. Get in front of this car so Clive'll be stuck behind it." Most of my stint was trying to keep at least 1 slower car between me and 96 & 89. Eventually though, they got through.

Let me bring you up to speed:
The auto-starter died a while back, so it developed a weird quirk. The auto-start is in that state where it thinks it just started the car, but you haven't gotten in it yet. So the radio doesn't work until you press the brakes. But when you release the brakes, it thinks it's in that just-started state again, so the radio turns off. What this means is that when you stop at a red light, you get music. But it always resets the radio to the default station, which just happens to be CHIN FM.

Every red light: "HIIIYAYAALALALALA!"
Green light: silence.

- Hand brake doesn't work, so you have to left foot brake a lot.
- Rear subframe is reinforced with scrap steel from Shaun's garage.
- Right rear strut tower is mostly salt crystals holding the rust together.
- Front tires are pretty good.

She's a fuckin' beaut!

2nd place in race and overall. Behind Greg, JP, and Greg of course. So far the team is 1-2 for ice racing. The car is done, though. Entire third hour we had no brakes whatsoever - went right to the floor. We also left a lot of parts on the ice today. It's had enough abuse - time to retire it.

Kevin and Greg had a bit of a, uh, tangle near the end of the third session. I'm in the passenger seat, and I look to my right and suddenly Greg's nose is right beside me, but there's no room... and WHAM into the snowbank. The back of the car lifted. Ouch. Sorry 'bout that chief. Looking forward to seeing Greg's video!

Ice racing is insane. Guys go full out on a track that had more holes then the moon. Thank god for my helmet. It was a total blast then the car broke.

GregK - Helped out a stranded rear wheel drive car. The rescue vehicles were helping another car so I figured he'd be sitting there a while.

Sounds like Greg likes to listen to 106,9 while Racing. Maybe that's the team secret

Sounds like Kevin is "consistent"

Kevin was driving his usual line - he did not move to protect his line or try to block. He was in fact driving in a straight line.

I don't know what Greg thinks, but from my point of view he came flying in from behind us just as we reached the corner apex. Since he couldn't slow down he had to either hit us or the snowbank, and he chose the snowbank (thanks!!!).

I'm sure it's a grey area but from my point of view Kevin was not the cause of the incident. He was simply driving towards the same rut that he used to turn the corner on every previous lap. As soon as it was obvious Kevin was taking the inside line on that corner (as he did 100% of the time), Greg should have taken the outside line if he wanted to pass there.

That was a class act!

It also messed up our strategy LOL; I had just let Greg pass so we could follow him into the pits on the changeover, so we could be right at the front. We ended up near the back.

Yeah, I dunno about Kevin, but I didn't see Greg coming. In my blind spot. Thus my surprise - all of 2 seconds before he hit the snowbank. Even if Kevin saw him coming he wouldn't have had time to react.

Also worth noting: we had no brakes - as soon as we started the session the pedal went to the floor - so Kevin had to start decelerating well before the corner.

lol, no worries man, its clear you guys didn't see me so I bailed, I had no problem with the speed I was carrying. You guys just need to do a better job of checking your mirror (s ) and turning your heads right and left. I could run clean door to door with 13, 3, 42, 96 and 1 all day long. I had a great back n forth with 13 ( dakota? ) and i don't think we ever touched fenders.

Here's the entire race as seen from #89, sped up 4X. I'm the first driver, followed by Mike, then Kevin.

Had a lot of mishaps early in my session. First we had something of a chain-reaction bump-o-rama right after the start, then we got needlessly black-flagged for a dragging bumper that fell all the way off before we exited the track, and then the same car kept spinning out right in front of us! We even hit him nose-to-nose once - well we're on ice after all. Got a lot better after that!!!

Yeah the bumper fell off on treeline, after we were black-flagged for a dragging bumper. Jay ran over to tell us to get back on the track.

Not sure which hit actually damaged the bumper - it may not be obvious from the video but we hit several different cars in that incident. James started turning in front of us and we were understeering like a bitch so I hit the brakes before we tapped him... so of course the guy behind us ran into our rear. I'm not sure but we might have contacted James again when he swung back, but we definitely bounced a couple of times off the car (77?) to our right.

I think that's all of the hits... not really sure. It was like a pinball game lol.
