The title says it all. Our first race was rained out. Everyone who showed up will get 5 points toward the championship, so it’s an 8-way tie for first going into the next race in Las Vegas, April 2-3.
We managed to be almost on our practice times from last year despite cold and windy conditions, and a very different steering. At the next race in Las Vegas, long-time passenger Vanessa McClure will be substituted with rookie passenger Giorgina Gottlieb. Fans may recognize the name, as Giorgina raced in the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. A steep learning curve is apparent, as the motocross style sidecar used in that event is drastically different from the 160hp Windle road-racing sidecar used by the team in it’s road racing efforts.
