We came in Friday at 7:AM for a full day of open practice. This was my first time at Thunderhill. Pretty neat track. After I spend two full days trying to figure it out!! ;-)
Finally getting down into the 2:33's in practice (Top 10 250's are running in the 2:14's, Terry and Dave in the 2:22's) I was at least confident I could get around the 15 turn 3.1 mile course without getting in anybody's way to badly ;-)
After the 250 production race I was HIGH!! Richard moves up !!!! 25th from my 30th finish at Sears!!! Then in the 500 Twins race I nabbed 26th up from 33th at Sears !!!! Turning my fastest laps at 2:28 !!!!! But Racergirl still rocks!! 24th and 25th again beating the old fat guy ;-).
Racer Girl is a beautiful young blonde that has been whipping on me from the start!! I just cannot get around her, She is a very very good rider and she does not realize it yet but we have become racing partners . dicing in every race so far ;-) In 250 production I actually had her beat and she got me on the second to last turn on the last lap ;-(. In the 500 twins race I chased her almost the whole race with a 500 novice in front of us that neither of us could get around until Racer Girl took him on the last lap beating me again.
What fun this is because no matter where you are in the realm of things you can always find someone to race with ;-). Her name is Jeraldeen Stewart, number 718 expert. She has her own website so even though she does not know I exist yet go visit and say hi at "racergirl.org" ;-).
Also a little note, there are at least 10 or 12 woman racing in 250 production!
In 250 Production this is how we finished:
(Jer 24th) ;-)
The in 500 twins a NEWS FLASH !!! .Terry bets Dave by a half a wheel!!!
(Jer 25th ) ;-)
Our local hero James Randolph wins Formula Pacific!!
The 250 production guy moved up to a TL1000R . Wink finishes 2nd in open twins . We are not worthy!!
This is TO MUCH FUN !!!! Stay tuned!! Last race Buttonwillow 10-22-00 !!!
