....more Race cars that go

My brother works grid at the MidOhio race track. He bought his wife a new camera so she tried it out at the race last weekend. Pretty good job with the new camera. All of these pictures were taken by Jenny and not me.A formula ford coming down the road from paddock to pre-grid.
My brother making sure the formula car drivers are all belted in correctly.

Here he is lining them up for the start.
Sometimes you have to be pretty explicit as the red mist may already have settled in.

...race cars Go

I got to crew this last weekend at the Mayday National at Heartland Park in Topeka Kansas. Because I was working most of the weekend I didn't get a lot of chances to get pictures, but I caught a few here and there with one short video at the end. When we get the in car footage I may include some more. Here is our paddock area. Front of car.
Rear of car. Always fiddling and diddling with things.
A Miata and a VW Golf going through turns 2 and 3.

The Golf is one of the popular small sedans.
A Lotus Super 7.
A Miata passing an SRF on the outside.
This Formula Atlantic wasn't having a good day.
Turn 4 and 5 is a busy place at the start of a race. The following video is from the regional race for Formula Atlantic's, Formula Continentals, C Sports racers and D Sports racers. This was our class but we didn't run the regional. We were saving ourselves for the National race Sunday.
