Taiwanease goes Motor Racing

Postby shiadoa » Tue Jan 07, 2014 23:16

I shall be Racing the Caterham SP300r this season at Penbay in the OTGP Option Cup. If any interested people would like to get a closer look, I would be more than happy to arrange a passenger ride, when possible . Racing against the Lamborghinis, Ferraris,McLaren,.....things are getting a bit faster now. Maybe we need to lower the car? :eek: Acute lack of Race engineers makes things harder in Taiwan. I guess it will come , eventually.

I am already famous divea ....problem is there are millions of people who are more famous :oops: Oh, and I am too old to enjoy it. The Taiwanese look at the wrinkles and ask ,"Are those scars from a Racing accident ? " :facepalm:

That is so cool, Shiadoa. Once we make the move (still six to nine months off), we'll both come to cheer you on. In the meantime, good luck this season and the gods give you speed. CELERITER!

Great, we have friends with a big house near the Track so maybe we can have a rather large Taiwanease drunken Party....free rooms and booze may even get JP there :wink:
Don't worry about the driving.....

Interesting Test...we have had no time to configure the throttle position sensor or do the suspension set up. ( Translation....handling all over the place and gas pedal suddenly decides to give maximum revs at will) spin or two and oversteer...all fixable. Speed impressive...cars max . speed 280KPH approx.
