I admit, it is a melancholy night in the Occhipinti household.
I should be packing for our trip to Bristol, but regretfully we are note headed there.
We were using a leased engine for the trip, and during its dyno preparation some internal damage was discovered. It was admittedly repairable, however it would have created much strife. We would have had no prove-out, missed the test session, and would have had to install the engine on the way to Bristol.
For a more local race, with less expenses, I suspect we would have proceeded. There were just too many variables, too high a speed to be messing around.
We desperately wanted to go and were planning our season around this race. We will be thinking of the teams that are there, the officials, and the fans.
Thank you to NSTA, and Bristol, for allowing us to go. I hope that we put on a good show and can go back next year.
Until next update, where I will be turning right,
