I know Tut and Pepper probably have a drawer full of these somewhere with nearly the same photo on them... But it's my first one and I'm ready to get the next one!
CORE Colorado 200 - First Place, Sportsman Class
This was my first desert race as the new owner of KITT and my wife's first desert race experience and as you can see, we had a great time! I thought Tut was crazy, calling KITT a "small" car (it barely fit on my trailer) but when we were lined up behind the unlimited cars, we did seem small...
Jeannine is suited up and ready for the race!
I don't have anything exciting to make a good race report... I guess that's a good thing though. The only problem we had was a kingpin snap ring coming loose (didn't seem to do any damage, I probably didn't seat it in properly) and some understeer in the gravelly spots, which I'm hoping that moving some weight forward might help. The course was a 15 mile lap and was quite fast but still interesting with lots of terrain including a wash, lots of kickers, and a pretty nasty (but short) whoop section. We ran mostly 3rd and 4th gear. There were about 18 cars entered and ranged from full on class1 (with lap times to match) to rock racers. About 5 cars per class so it made for some good racing.
I know that nobody posts much on Tut's old site anymore but I figured I'd post a last photo of KITT, but if any of you see us, feel free to come say "HI"! We are also at Little Sahara dunes in Waynoka, I know some of the minibuggy group also haunt those dunes...
