Just getting around to editing some videos. This is the Saturday Sprint race for the Big Bore Group. Us Medium Bore guys at the very back of the pack had some fun. The grid for Medium Bore was really packed and I did not asked to be moved...so there I was (we were) at the back of the pack. Turned my personal best lap time at Pitt Race in this sprint and surprised myself. Was able to complete the feature race on Sunday.....spoiler alert???

Is that a different venue from the past? I've never been but I thought I've seen pictures where there Trees close to the Track & Real Curbs like it was on a city street.

There are two events. The one you saw was in Shenley Park, downtown Pittsburgh.
Mike's race is at the old Beaver Run, which has been renovated.

Hey Glenn, the shifter is a rather newly intalled Rennshifter. No problem with the shifter, in fact, it helps quite a bit. Problem was with the tranny. You kniow...it's a 901! Having it rebuilt now. It started showing signs of failure about the time the shifter was installed. Hindsight is always 20/20.
