    Default Chump Car at Bogie Sept 28-29

    Who else will be at the Chump Car race Sept 28-29th?

    We will be there with the Bytown Brawlers CRX. Pretty sure James is going to be there.

    Look out, we replaced an inner tie rod end and we are going to set a new track record now. Well, at least I think we did, we started taking the car apart, many beverages were poured and consumed and the next day the car was on the ground. I really don't even want to think what the alignment is at, it may have gotten a drunken acu-precise-eyeball-o-meter job.

    We will even have matching driving suits thanks to our sponsors.

    For anyone who has never been, this is by far the most fun I have ever had racing. Relaxed and fun are paramount.

    Can't believe that there is not an MR team already.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    Dunno, just a random pic I found on the net. We have actual suits, LOL.

    Also, for those that are going, where are you staying? At the track, go home each night?

    My wife and I (and our parents) will be staying at a B&B, Friends of Calabogie. Tried to book Taste Funatics, but they were booked solid already. I am getting too old to camp at the track....

    I'll head up to support some friends who are running a BMW they pieced together in a similar fashion to your CRX... It was out at the MCO night in August, too.

    May have to get on a team for next year! This looks like too much fun...

    Pic of our actual car. No longer has the giant farking air brake on the back though, and has an extra 3 or 4 donuts on the doors. Does not look nearly as pretty anymore.

    You know Nigel? I think that may be who you are talking about.

    I'm going to go home each night, at least so far that is the plan. I'll most likely be bringing my air mattress and trailer just in case, never know if the car will need an all nighter repair session or not.
