The LOOOONGGG RACE
If you have not raced before, being on the track is very
exciting and lots of work. The time between those times however, can be a bit
dull. Following are things folks do to fill time.
Paul Jankovskis entertaining himself. Kids, don't try this
Paul, now with a yo-yo.
Trey Coon cleaning his helmet.
Pete Luongo and Berdie Martin chatting. Lots of
talking and strategizing goes on between sessions.
Yep, more strategizing.
Gary, friend of the Elite team, cooking lunch ... a rare
treat between sessions.
A large gang, eating said lunch.
How was it? Beau liked it.
Now things are getting more serious, the crew is getting the
cars ready to go out. Play time is over, track time is near.
After each session, the drivers get their times and report
to Elite staff about what the car felt like and how it was
handling on the track, should adjustments need to be made.
