there were really awesome rides there, with great craftsmanship thruout.
Pete was initially going to drive, but once we found out the there were multiple pro drivers, that were potentially fudging the rules, we called on our friend and advisor to take a drive for us and see if his advise and console was working. I am still not sure if the data on the lap times and such got sent out.
But a fun time for all to say the least!
Well Stielow is a pro, but he built the yellow '69... I agree about the driver of the Cobra, but I don't know the whole story.. Ryan works for DSE and was within the rules. David Pozzi is the guy that built my suspension. The point made was that you need a good driver to show off a good car.
In any event it was a great time.. you need to be there next time.
Just for the record though.. nobody was on "shaved tires".. sorry, just a pet peeve of mine
