Countdown to the Icebreaker (April 5th and 6th) shows we are far behind on preps from where we wish we were. No worries, we will be in top form by race day.
I hope to help my brother David Barnett to raise money for Dana Farber cancer research. David will be running in his 20th straight Boston Marathon and will be running for Dana Farber in memory of my Dad and brother Jack. The link to make a donation is here: http://www.runDFMC.org/2014/davidb.
Can we help him help all of us? Please consider joining me in donating. I will donate my Icebreaker Sunday race purse to this cause. Will you donate $20 in honor of Davidís 20th Boston Marathon. You could also consider donating $73 Ėsuch a nice number- or more?
Everyone take a peek at the segment race rules for Saturday eve at the Icebreaker: Segment Race Info. The Sportsman division will have a special event, divided into three segments. 8 laps, leave the track, then invert the field and race 9 laps, leave the track again, and come back for a final 10 lap leg, with starting positions based on lap times from the first segment. Winner is car with lowest total number of the added up finish positions. Confusing?- yes, will take a lot of time?-yes, but it wonít be without action. I think the magic number could be 9 for the winner.
If we listen closely, we may be able to hear the engine being run on Natís engine dyno at some point today. If it is ready, I may be able to pick it up later today. Nat and crew hope for an even better engine, I asked him to make as many parts out of lead as possible.
As seen in the photo, the body isnít really on the car yet. I have picked up all the body parts made by Rayline and Duraflex. I will begin painting panels today. Lettering will come from Jeff Winsor, and there is plenty of space on our car for some commercial sponsorship. Want to be the first?
After having the front clip replaced by SPAFCO, we have installed all of the chassis parts, bled the brakes, and are ready to install the engine and body. Final chassis tweaks will follow that.
As always, Jonny has led the charge in the shop. I have had to use up an entire vacation week to attempt to get back on schedule with the car. Extra help here in the Moosup, CT shop, and at the track, is always welcome.
See everyone soon,
