Race Team

Stop the presses!!! The hand selected race team for the upcoming 24 hrs of LeMons race has been selected. As suspected the Dover Bros have won hands down. The team consists of:
South Haven, lock up your daughters (maybe just take away their walkers), the Dover Bros are coming.
For those of you that missed the media announcements the race is April 16 & 17 at Gingerman in South Haven. The car is the Prince of Darkness special, a black 1970 MGBGT. Can you believe it, a 30 yr old MG in a endurance race. Can you say "oximoron"? Maybe after meeting the Dover Bros you can at least say moron.
For a few laughs and some info. google "24 Hrs of Lemons"
Stay tuned.

We are moving along

The car is coming along well the braking system is rebuilt and completed the calipers were rebuilt and new pads and rotors were installed at the back we put in new wheel cylinders and turned the drums the brake shoes were just fine. Dale Andrews gave us a set of tires and Tom had some wheels from a TR6 which fit just fine. The racing seat is ready to be installed now that the floor is rebuilt and the mounts for the safety harness is ready. We are having the roll cage bent just waiting for the call to pick it up so we can weld it in. All the fluids are checked and full so we should be ready to race in April.
