2007 Racing Season In Review

2007 rolled around with a unique challenge: There was a second black car in the driveway adorned with Cg-Lock livery, but the similarities between the cars were few. The new Cg-Lock ride was for a foreign racing surface with foreign technologies, and the season would begin with nearly a complete dearth of usable information. We decided to have fun and become moderately acclimated without getting bogged down in the details. Before the season began, we elected to run with the ESDCA, which is the Empire State Dwarf Car Association. The schedule consisted of 30+ races at 7 tracks clustered around Syracuse, NY. The schedule was published in February, which gave us plenty of time to ruminate prior to the season. We wanted to wait a few weeks into the season to debut; however the debut was pushed back even further as we had a wee bit more car maintenance to complete than we anticipated. It took us until June, but we finally headed north towards the Canadian border to begin the season.

This one is from author Chuck Klosterman. (more…)

CG-Lock Neon takes 5th place at SCCA Solo National Championships

Congratulations go out to Michael Occhipinti and Eric Denissen for making 2006 the most successful Nationals in Team Neon’s history. Michael took a fifth place trophy, his highest finish to date, and Eric moved up to 15th, his highest finish also.
