Gosh, this is my first post since the end of last season.
I myself along with the entire “Life’s Good Racing!” team have had a very busy 2016 and time sure flew by. I’ve been so busy at my weekday job that writing in my LGR Blog has had to take a back seat to my work. And, the entire LGR shop staff has been busy maintaining our race cars but also customer’s race cars and now even street cars. If you need something done to your street car weather it’s installation of some aftermarket component or system or custom fabrication you can bring it to us!
Next weekend at Thunderhill in Willows CA will be our last “Race” weekend of the year. We are taking our #96 Camaro and both of our BMW M3’s to compete in the last United State Touring Car Championship race of the year. We ‘ve been so busy this year in the shop plus coaching and supporting customers with their cars at track days that we have not attended every USTCC race so we are not high up in the championship points like we were last year but we are still very competitive when we run like our results at Sonoma last week prove. Beau Borders (2016 USTCC TC Champion) is driving our #96 Camaro in the USTCC GT class and he finished second in class at Sonoma last week while having the fastest GT race lap. New team member Karl Von Beckmann backed up his second place Touring Car (TC) finish in the May USTCC event at Sonoma with another second last weekend and he also had the fastest race lap in TC while piloting one of our ultra competitive BMW M3’s! New for next weekend we will have team member Cedric Walker competing in his first pro race when he runs our second M3 in Touring Car class along with Karl Von Beckmann.
If you are in the area of Thunderhill Raceway and want to see some very good racing this weekend, try and make it out to the track. The weather should hold off and be just partly cloudy and warm. The USTCC event is once again running with BMW Club of America and they always have fantastic race groups running this weekend as well.
Hope to see you at the track. I’ll try and make another post before the end of the year. Till then……
