I’m not dead, not gone, just in hibernation. While the winter months chipped away at free daylight, I was busy planning for the 2013 season. Here it is, just what the doctor ordered.
This season the focus will be on upgrading the stock 2007 mini Cooper S with race specific hardware. This will be the case while I await my stock picks to pop and buy the M5 outright in cash with no loans to worry. I’m halfway there.
Hoosier slicks mounted to their new rims. Shame, these rims look sweeter than the stock Mini. Oh well.
Compliments of the tax return, I got a new set of rims and slicks, exclusively for the Autocross season ahead of us. Tomorrow is the first event, and I’m quite excited to try these badboys out.
As the new season starts, There will finally be life restored to the team site. Now that I spent the cash on slicks, this year I’m more committed than ever.
See you on the track.
Finally an SCCA Autocross!
I got to attend the SCCA Autocross. First one this year. After a series of mishaps, 2 auto accidents and strings of repair to the Mini I finally had a car able to drive in the event. Yes, the check engine light is on again.
The Mini is a stock Cooper S with the sport package. OEM front tires and cheapo rear tires . I ran a flat a few months back and needed tires that day. No one had the OEM’s and I had to settle for less.
This is the video from the dash mounted GoPro Hero camera.
The site moved from NSI to the much better GoDaddy. In the process I allowed the related data to go buh bye.
So, this time around I’m gearing up for the SCCA (Sport Car Club of America) 2013 season. This season is casual, do it when I can, as much as I can in my Mini Cooper S.
I have a fund raising “sister site” up at: http://replacemym5.com. It’s sole purpose is to raise funds so that I can buy another Bred for Racing BMW //M series vehicle. My desire is acquire and A class vehicle by December. (Each class if a higher performing car). My previous //M5 was F class. The Mini is D class. I’m getting there.
