I’ve been a racing fan since the mid-’70s. Over the years, as my interest in different aspects and forms of motor racing grew, and as I was able to afford more performance-oriented cars, it was almost inevitable that I’d attend driving schools and spend some time at the track. Now I’ve gone completely off the deep end: Watching is no longer enough and I want to do. Uh-oh.
On this and associated pages, I’m documenting my experiences building and driving a race car. This includes updates on modifications to the car, as well as info on race schools, track days, and race week-ends. My purpose in doing this is two-fold: One, it’ll be nice to have some kind of record of what I’ve done, especially as I get older and old data gets crowded out for new. 🙂 Two, I hope other people interested in club racing will have a little window into what it’s like and what’s involved, as well as challenges I’ve faced and lessons I’ve learned.
Okay, three-fold: I hope it’s entertaining reading, too!
As a good place to start, I’d suggest the Logbook, which is really the hub of this site. It’s a season-by-season breakdown of my racing career with links to reports for each race and school I’ve attended, as well as post-season standings and analysis. Or you could read a little bit about how I got started in amateur racing in the first place.
