TRD Ferguson - ChumpCar - Road America - October 20, 2013
Here's TRD Ferguson's start of the race on Sunday. We were able to move
through the field pretty well until our brakes started fading pretty badly.
The stock brake system isn't really able to handle the speeds produced by
our new engine. At least a brake upgrade will make a nice winter project
Floridiot Motorsports crash
15 laps into the 2013 14 Hours of Sebring with Chumpcar, the Honda gets
some oversteer, lifts and over corrects right into me...
The hit put them on the trailer, and us into the paddock for a 2.5 hr
Road America LeMons race, August 2012, Ryan Roberson racing Emanuele Pirro
Skid Marks Racing #56 Neon
What a great time! This is the video of the last 20 minutes of SMR's first
stint, and we're in P1 at this time (dropped to 6th after the pit stop).
First time I get around him at around 6:03 after Pirro picks the wrong side
to pass a slower car. I didn't know it at the time, but the guy driving
the white Porsche is none other than Emanuele Pirro, 5X 24 Hours of LeMans
winner, and ex-F1 driver! When I got back to the pits after this stint, I
told the guys on my team that I didn't know who was driving the Porsche,
but they were really good (primarily because he held it together in T1 on
lap 26 8:45; the video doesn't do it justice!). Little did I know.......
Are you afraid of the SAAB?
This video is really old, we've got the girl racin! Here's footage from
From www.thecarbeque.com We've worked out all the major problems with our
$400 SAAB, installed a set of EBC race brakes, put on the race Exhaust and the next step will be all the safety
equipment. We will be going to Alston Race Cars in Antioch to get the snow
leopard (our internal codename for the carbeque) measured for the roll
cage. They do amazing work. In the meantime we will begin to devise our
cooker box that'll turn the 900 into a real Carbeque. Until then, enjoy!
