Not the season we hoped for...So Far
We've had our share of bad luck so far, in the first seven races we've blown a transmission one week, and blew the motor in the following week.
We've had 3 podium finishes (2nd or 3rd place), one of which was taken away from us because of a minor rules infraction, in which we were stripped of any points for the race, which i still don't understand to this day. Normally they will give you last place points for something like that. But it's all political anyway, they own the track and they can do whatever they want, if you don't kiss enough ass, you get it stuck up yours, it's as simple as that.
Anyway we've been struggling with the handling of the car, some changes that we made were obviously the wrong ones, but now i think we've figured out what we need to do, hopefully we'll show it next weekend.
We have new sponsors on the car, which is something we haven't had in the last few years, so we have to do the best we can to finish well for them.
The good thing is, there are alot of races left for us to redeem ourselves somewhat, a few podium finishes (preferably wins) will do wonders for team moral, not to mention points and prize money.
I don't know if we have a chance to win a championship, our goal is to just try and win as many races as we can, for our few loyal fans, our sponsors and ourselves.
My highest praise for our race team, that works their butts off every week, and to our fans that cheer us on every week..without them there would be no incentive to go out there in the first place.
