Default Diving Back In

Okay, I'm going racing this weekend for the first time since 1993. So I apologize to the other drivers now for my, what will be my obvious, lack of driving skills and eyesight. But I did build two cars for the event and hopefully the VooDoo theme will unnerve everyone enough so I can get out front, for like half a second! Looking forward to running some laps.

-Paul

Good luck,Paul. I am sure you will hold your own! Maybe your thread should be titled,"Driving back in". (lol)

Don't know why the system malfunctioned, but I erased one of these "doubled up" postings......

"Lucky Bob's" in Milwaukee is hosting a HOPRA Nationals event this week (I made a "parts run" while working out of my home office Tuesday up near there). Bob was busy cleaning/reorganizing the place for practice/qualifications later in the week, with the finals on Saturday. Wish I could just go and watch; alas, my weekend is full........

Nothing that ambitious yet. I'm racing with some friends with n Lexington' KY. Who knows, this might be the stepping stone to get me back to that level. Looking forward to some fun laps and just trying to stay in the slot.

First chance I've had to post since racing last Saturday. First off, the guys at LCS club are excellent and they made me feel like I was racing there for years. Great bunch to run with. I managed to finish in the top 7...and it just so happened there were 7 racers that day! But I had a blast and learned a lot. I need some practice, but I did have a fast car and was able to run several laps with the lead group. I need to learn to watch my car and not everyone else's again. Looking forward to the next race and improving. I really liked the ViperJet, it was very different than anything I raced before. Working on my next build for the weekend and spend some time on my track getting lap time down. Thanks again to Stan for the invite and to Byron for hosting. Byron has a beautiful Tyco track that is very smooth and challenging. Made new friends with Walter, Joey, Steve and David. Can't wait to race some more with you guys.

Going Racing again tomorrow. I may not be the best driver anymore, but I can still make a car look good. Here's my latest, a March 83C with the Red Lobster livery. Get a good look before I smack it up against a few track barriers!

I always thought that was such a cool livery on the real car! I gotta find someone to make me up some cool custom decals as well. That is way past my skill level and my current equipment to make it happen.

Check out Patto's Place. They have the Red Lobster in peel and stick or decals.

Trying out a new image host. This is my latest build for the next race event. The Western Auto Livery was a little more challenging than I thought it would be. I'm really enjoying the paint and build sessions. Now if I can get my driving to improve!
