Even though I somehow managed to not get pics of Mike Hurst, Andrew Comrie-Picard or Scott Carlborn's respective mugs I did snap a bunch of shots, the most interesting few of which I share here ...

I talked to ACP yesterday....he called me from his cell phone while in the Stud bug....

The car owner is doing all the track driving. ACP is the crew guy, open road driver, etc.

That would explain their overall position :).

Yup. Dr. Jack was a great guy to meet and chat with but it was definitely his car, his show. ACP will tell you he was in a bit of a dither trying to figure out where to go and who to ask for help finding that tire and then, "I saw the Bug!" (his words). When he first caught up with me I suggested they put a tube in the tire to alleviate the problem caused by the nail in the sidewall, to which he just shook his head, grinned and mumbled, "Rally drivers."

I didn't find out about the track driving arrangement until later and was likewise flabbergasted that ACP wasn't donning the Nomex. Ah well, emergency tire swaps and a couple hours pergatory in the StudBug aside, it seemed he was having a good time. You'll have to ask him how the Bug stacks up against his old Lada ...

Oh, and speaking of pictures, here's one snapped by a "GreenCountryMotorsports.com" forum member (Sean Grubb) taken of an Audi blowing through a Turn 4 tire wall in anticipation of a wrecker ride off the Hallett property.

Congrats to One Lappers!!!

Congrats to Andrew Comrie-Picard for helping Jack Ireton-Hewitt bring his #33 Porsche 944 Turbo home 36th overall. William Cook, Mike Hurst and Jon Dega overcame myriad problems just to make it to Hallett last Thursday and have apparently persevered for a 41st overall finish in their #51 Volvo/Ford. Scoring the whole shooting match as it lapped America was 2001 SNO*DRIFT Production Champ, Scott Carlborn.

Despite being that far off line, I had just lapped the S2000 on the background.

I was not involved in the preparation of the car.


Special thanks to Mark Brown in Denver, Chad Devries of 4 to go, Jeff and Barb Harty for their help just before the start, Mike Halley for tips on how to get around Hallet (but I was too tired to comprehend) and of course Sue and Doug Robinson for keeping us in the event.

Part of the fun was helping with everyone's problems. We found a Miata transmission in some kid's garage in Kansas City, the PCA found a 3L Porsche engine in Colorado for Glen Clarke (of Ottawa), David had his 930 trans rebuilt in Denver, we found most of the right front of an Evo 8 in 'Frisco, enough of a nose for a WRX in Milwaulkee, and a BMW 325i to replace the trans of an Impala in Topeka....

I'll be back. Zany. I can't believe it's over. As they say: "You only go around once."

Lap Dog.
