So we’re now ensconsed in that which is Altamont Motorsports Park.
It is a crazy sight that is just tough to manage, so here are a few word based snippets (having trouble linking the video right now).
Pimps and Ho’s, the ride, a sweet CRX and their crazy crew (the video is awesome) they had one heck of an entrance at tech.
Everyone has been so nice to each other (wait till we all get on the track)
Every kind of car, with every prep level,, from tight paint masking and nascar level trim, to cars that looked like they were dropped off a cliff to look better.
Finding people you already know, (and didn’t know they were into lemons racing)
Getting to meet the famous Murilee of Jalopnik in person finally (after talking via phone and email for so long).
The owner over at AltaMont Motorsports Park, John,, a great guy! He took me for a ride around the track and showed me what’s where this afternoon (shhhhh!!!) Genuinely cares about getting people good information, being safe, and having a great time. His car is he and a bunch of first time lemons people (and they’ve got a supermodified wing on a miata!)
I’m bushed and have forgotten things all through the day (like to eat) so I’m going to do that now. If you see this post with any video,, it’s cause I finally got it to work.
Oh yeah, and the best news of all,,,
WE PASSED TECH INSPECTION!!!!
