After switching our trusty MR2 over from a time machine to a little tow truck, we took our racing to the next level this year! We finished 16th overall out of 93 cars and 4th in class B. Not to shabby, right? In fact, it surprised us all!

We kept the car more or less the same as the year before except for adding additional driver comforts. However, we worked on driving faster and better. This was definitely shown in the results this year compared to year. With better strategy, now that we have a good race radio system, we were able to […]

Sears Pointless 2013 was a blast! We thankfully got into B class with our slow, but steady Toyota MR2. After two days of racing, we placed 5th in B class and 30th overall out of 178 cars!

We’re getting ready for the upcoming races in California for 2013! Can’t wait to get on the track in the MR2 for Sears Pointless.

We survived Vodden The Hell Are We Doing? at Thunderhill placing 11th in the B class and 46th overall out of a whopping 184 cars! Here’s Tim Mixing it up in Turn 11. No hard feelings, we hope. Sorry about the tap! Here’s David preaching to the converted as a penalty for that mix up […]

The best thing is that we actually placed relatively competitively at 44 out of 145 cars. We’re really gunning for Thunderhill and we’re hoping to place even better in that […]

We have some minor work to do on the car. We need to get new tires, fix the suspension, and minor touch ups here and there. Also, we got a cheap but cool wing to put on the back! Buttonwillow is at the end of June so we have plenty of time.

We survived Sears Pointless 2012! We battled through our incompetence and the raging rain on Saturday and picked up more steam on Sunday as the weather cleared up. We’re all tired now but I’ll post pictures and videos in the next week. We placed 96th out of 172.

Almost ready

Another very productive weekend. We put some sheet metal up on the roof to cover the T-Top to make the car safer as well as added more padding to the roll cage bars. We also mounted the instrument cluster properly inside the car. Most importantly, we put the new alternator in and got the car […]
