|3/01||Were at Sebring as a support race for the 12 hours. The car in the paddock.|
|Robert hard on the brakes.|
|Trying to make the car turn. Here its pushing like crazy.|
|In the race, coming up on a BMW. Transmission problems took us out of the race.|
|6/01||We ran a test day at Blackhawk Farms. I say test day in jest, because all we got was 6 laps and 2 blown transmissions. Here Denny Marklein laughs at us. On a technical note, weve started relocating parts to improve the weight balance. The fire bottle is visible on Dennys right.|
Another of our friends mocking us for our problems. Lars Lindell trys the car out for size.
|7/01||We figured we found the transmission problems so we towed out to Sears Point in California. Here you can see the MK2 splitter and also the fact that weve lowered the car.|
|Exiting the hairpin onto the main straight at Sears. We didnt finish the race...transmission problems (and no water in the radiator).|
|8/01||Armed with a new transmission and new engine we attacked Portland International Raceway.|
|We didnt start the race...transmission failure during qualifying...and we didnt have another.|
