We need all the 944s we can get for this. I dug deep and got this setup, please make it pay off for us. Where else but NASA are you going to get to race for free??

You may be afraid of the walls, but no one is forcing you to drive 10/10ths. Drive 7 or 8 /10ths, just mix it up and no one will know any better. The key is close racing with lots of passing - not speed!

Just put on a good show for the crowd (how often do you get to race in front of a crowd and sign autographs????) and we've got the sweet deal setup for you for the July Pueblo race.

if that doesn't then the little picnic baskets of tea and crumpets sure will. ;)

and I wouldn't walk around saying the word "knuckledraggers" very loud either :p

BTW, I think it's very cool that this got setup!!! If you guys get to race for free, then I hope we get a big pack of 944s there!! :)

I do believe I can do that. I'm more than willing to talk to people about NASA for sure. Can you get more of those 4x6 cards with our schedule on it? That way I can hand out something with contact info on it.

Oh, are we gonna have posters for the July event???

So... how'd it go? I was going to come down and hang out, but no one answered their phone, so I wasn't going to make a 2 hour drive without any solid info. :(

We had a great time!!

Driving on a small circle track was definitely a different experience- the banks were very high (about 17 degrees?) and we were doing about 60 or so. Our laps times were about 17 seconds...:eek:

We had three practice sessions and then the exhibition race. The grand stands were FULL and the crowd went nuts when MICHELLE got out of her car in the winner's circle!

Hopefully we'll post some in-car video of the race soon.

Thanks to Gary for coming down to help out in the pits!

Michelle needs to move up to NASCAR, our road and circle coarses are too easy for her :D

That, or its something about the competition :eek:

svochuck

WOW What a great Time !

The first few sessions made me feel dizzy but during the race all I could see was Chris and Michelle going at it for 20 laps !

So of us were taking it easy not wantting any problems and some of us were there to RACE !

We all pulled into the winners triangle ??? and had Michelle park in the center and YES the crowd cheered louder for Michelle than they did for any of the normal class drivers !!! maybe 2000 people !

GREAT TIME WE WILL DO IT AGIAN !

video to come

I had a good time helping/crewing/watching/etc - congrats to Michelle on getting the win! Winning on an oval AND a road courseIm not sure even Michael Schumacher himself can say that hes done that! ;)

I was impressed by the generally positive reception our group got at the track the fans were into it, the announcer seemed to be into it (he really, really wanted the 944s to stay and run the figure-8 configuration later that night), the track personnel were welcoming, friendly, and helpful, and the traditional circle-track racers that we talked to at least seemed to be interested in the setup of the cars.

I just wonder if Michelle can ever again be happy racing in front of the traditional road-racing crowd, now that shes gotten used to receiving cheers from a grandstand packed with several hundred of her biggest fans when she gets out of the car after the race! Im not sure we can get a crowd that large into the impound area at Pueblo to provide a similar post-race reception!!! :D

At this point I'm wondering if she'll ever race again...because she won't be able to find a helmet to go over her huge head!! :rolleyes: :D
