So this was the busiest week of the year for us. Two of the three cars were torn to bits, Logan’s car wasn’t running, and we had an event to run on Sunday. On Thursday night Steve’s car looked like this

I managed to get the car put together and left for a 5 hour drive to Shawn and Logan’s home town by 6 am on saturday morning.564390_300866673328702_100002161160918_697267_154146270_n

I arrived in Kelowna to find Logans car up on stands and ready to paint. Unfortunately Logan had got something stuck in his eye and had to go to hospital to get a needle stuck in not one, but both of his eyes.

Once at the track we unloaded for a few test, shakedown laps before the 31 other signed up drivers arrived. With 4 laps completed between 3 cars we had 2 of them broken already. Logan’s car had torn his subframe, snapped an arm and punctured his gas tank and Shawn had blown 3rd gear,

But after 4 long days, with very little sleep, it was time to get crazy and get on some doors. There is nothing more satisfying then awesome tandems on a warm summers day. No matter how hard the road is and how little we sleep, remember why we do this. Because its what we love.
