I went racing tonight!!!

Update: My shoulder, the one whose collar bone I broke at a Sears Point AHRMA race about 11 years back, is so sore today. The bump where the bone knit was apparently right under the shoulder strap of the 4-point harness. I had that thing cinched down so tight, and the beating from the curbs and flinging the car side to side seem to have bruised me a bit there.

Ahhh. I want to go back and do it again!
Yes, I did. But it was at Malibu Grand Prix.

I know, I know. You are all chuckling about it. But I haven’t been to the track in a couple of years, so this was fun. I was turning close to the fast time of the day, and was able to slide the car around a lot. Then the dude in charge gave me attitude about running over the curbs…

Let me say that sliding a car with the steering wheel turned to opposite lock is really fun! And a lot safer than doing it on a bike. Who knows, I may try to pick up a Formula Ford or Formula Vee one of these days.

    It may just be an optical illusion but your head seems abnornally large for that tiny cockpit. Have you redistributed your body mass to above your neck?
