Maybe Ferrari can keep it close till the very last race of the season next year. Come on Ferrari, entertain me!

I don’t like the way today’s race ended, five seconds is a bit harsh in my opinion.

But at the same time, should Vettel be allowed to keep the lead after making an error and rejoin the track in an unsafe manner which is a violation of the sporting regulations, even if it was unintentional?

If it was up to me, since Vettel was ahead of Lewis by roughly one second, I would impose a one second penalty

i have no idea what happened in canada, but this is some of the racing that goes on in the paddock at a lemons race.

The mercedes got WORKED.



Turtle took P3 in class, and P9 out of 133 cars after 15 hours of racing. Cheers to that.

Here's you Honda Odyssey powered Mustang. Mid engine. Accord drivetrain.

Car was not as fast as it looked.



here's your race winner - purple/pink e36, shown with the Turtle and a 50s Hudson - replica of Mario/Aldo Andretti's first dirt track car.




Had to zoom in on this as the camera took a delayed shot... Tortoise vs Hare. in this case, a VW turbo diesel Rabbit. Just as in the fable , the turtle wins.




This is what you get when you weld two Pacer rears together and drop them on an MR2.

Should be 90 degrees on Sunday so Ferrari tires will be plenty warm enough. Combine that with their straight line speed, Charles gonna win.

Charles isn't French, he is technically Monégasque. Is that close enough to consider some sort of home court advantage?

Easiest thing to do is rent whatever gear you need and then check the series forums for a team looking for a driver at the closest venue to you - or whatever track you want to race at. Expect to pay around $700 to $1200 for 2 or 3 stints over 2 days. Chump is racing at Indy in July, and a few teams looking for drivers for that one - it's a bit more expensive though because of the venue.

Do you know the guys who drive RaceBar? It's a 5 series with a keg or 2 in the back?

They were camped out next to use at HyperFest, interesting group for sure!!

Not personally, but yes, they were there and also at the VIR chump races too. Car is actually a 7 series.

They had a party tent set up Sat night and handed out markers for people to write on their car. I scrawled a little turtle above the chumpcar sticker.

They all had those shorts on


I'm hiding in this pic with neon shoes and black fireproof socks





this was Sat night. Racebars BMW is in the middle. Drinks were being served out of it. People were dancing on it. There's a DJ in the back of the tent.




top 33 finishers





The guy that won C class showed up to the track with his car and no other drivers. He recruited random drivers throughout the weekend to drive and help refuel.
