The usual early arrival. Not uncommon for the team to arrive at our second home, Zwartkops Raceway finding the rest of the family out.
Found our TraxDay spot. Parked the cars, unpacked and hung our home made Historic Racing banners.
Made some tasty steaming coffee, enjoyed that with a muffin, polished Fossa. First historic car to arrive, Gerdus Smit’s Locost.
We entered into the day with a previous best in the 1:41’s and my target although I thought it was steep, to get into the 1:39’s.
A few days earlier I installed an application called RaceChrono on my Android cellphone. A truly magical application.
Out and in laps included we completed 71 laps @ 2.4 Km = 170.4 Km. In our first stint we did a best of 1:43.14.
The in-be-tweener, our friend Thomas Falkiner arrived and took a stint with me in Fossa while Chris “Roach” took a ride with Gerdus. I am sure he missed his Mustang!
In our last stint we ran a 1:38.31 with a good average throughout the stint. A few more seconds needed to become competitive in the Little Giants. Has Fossa got it in her? Do I have it in me?
Next stop, Piston Ring Club and Zwartkops, 3 November!
