IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship – Road America

By |2019-08-06T11:54:49-05:00August 6th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

All parts of the IMSA racing series are amazing. It’s high dollar, high horsepower, high ego racing. You don’t just sign up for a Lamborghini Super Trofeo racing series because you’re a casual weekend enthusiast. This is some serious business and I’m all for it. Then you have the sportscar championship series which is also some of my favorite racing to watch. We were lucky and got to see some pretty great racing and I’m already planning where to watch more IMSA racing next year! In the meantime here are some photos from this past weekend. […]

The Formula 1 Grand Prix of Hungary took place this weekend and was arguably a rather non exciting race. It was pretty bland. Except for some parts! The big news was the heated battle between Hamilton and Verstappen. Vertsappen started in P1 and was able to hold first for nearly the entire race until the Silver Arrow decided to attack. Verstappen had lost most of his tire tread and ultimately could not compete with Hamilton. With about 5 laps to go, Hamilton overtook Verstappen and won the race. With Hamilton and Verstappen finishing in 1st and 2nd respectively, Vettel ended up taking 3rd. […]

Mercedes has yet anoth-… wait a minute… Mercedes only scored two whole points in Germany? What is this nonsense! They had their cars painted all pretty to celebrate motorsport and both Lewis and Bottas had their worst races of the season? Germany proved to be a very tough track not just for Mercedes but for all other teams. Ferrari had its difficulties but also had its wins as Vettel came back from 20th position to finish in 2nd while Leclerc started strong and ultimately did not finish. The strange bits of rain truly left for some insane driving and some insane maneuvers from drivers. Some of these maneuvers worked while others did not. A big win of the race was Red Bull Torro Rosso securing a podium finish with Kyvat, their first in over 3,900 days. There is so much that went on in this race, I cannot fit it all into one singular paragraph so attached is a video highlighting all of the madness that went down in Germany. […]

Vintage Racing at Road America

By |2019-07-24T11:29:44-05:00July 24th, 2019|Events, Uncategorized|0 Comments

The racing this weekend was great. The name for the event, however, is way too long, “THE WEATHERTECH® INTERNATIONAL CHALLENGE WITH BRIAN REDMAN PRESENTED BY HAWK (VINTAGE CARS).” Once you get that out of the way and tell people you’re headed to, “The Hawk” they probably know what you mean. It’s one of the largest vintage events in the country for racers and brings some amazing vehicles to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. The best part of the weekend for me isn’t always the racing, but heading into town and checking out the race car parade. Check out some photos from the event (Spoiler Alert: It’s Porsche heavy as always!) […]

Plan for the worst, hope for the best – my trip to the 2019 WeatherTech International Challenge

By |2019-07-23T16:28:15-05:00July 23rd, 2019|Driving Experience, Events|0 Comments

Racing is one hell of a drug. When driver and car are running flawlessly the emotional high is amazing. On the other hand, when everything is going wrong the low is absolutely miserable. Anyone who’s been involved in the sport for a reasonable amount of time can certainly attest. Personally, having campaigned a car or two for the better part of twenty years I’ve experienced all the emotions. And if I’m being honest, as of late there’s been more mechanical misery. Perhaps that’s why I approached the 2019 WeatherTech International Challenge at Road America assuming all would go wrong. Or maybe because that’s exactly what happened the year prior. Regardless, if I learned anything during the weekend, it’s that you should expect the unexpected, and that sometimes the unexpected it sheer joy. If you’ve never been to the WeatherTech International Challenge (WIC), or The Hawk as many refer to it, what are you waiting for? It one of the largest assemblies of vintage race cars and enthusiasts in the country hosted at what I consider the greatest race track in the great in North America, Road America. Attending the event has become a family tradition for me, dating back to when I was a young 10-year old and leading up to now attending with my kids. The event truly offers fun for the whole family, particularly if the family has a bit of motor oil running through their veins. So, needless to say as the 2019 WIC rolled around, I [...]

I’m not sure how else to introduce this than by saying it’s one of the coolest vehicles I’ve ever seen and I want one badly. What you see below is called a “SHERP” and I’m pretty sure I’ve shared a video of them in action before. But up until a few weeks ago, I had no idea where to get one, how to get one, or what I’d do if I did get one. Now, thanks to Matt Farah at Road & Track, I learned everything I ever wanted to know about the SHERP and found out one of the company’s few US distributors is up near Bemidji, MN as well as a several-hundred-acre test facility. Although I’m not in a position that affords me the ability to pay for a $120,000 offroad toy at the moment, I would love to get my hands on one someday. Heck, it’s only a 4-hour drive… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCScCEQsHsM […]

2019 Denver Mecum Auction – Did They Sell?

If you didn’t catch our road trip blog you can read about how we got to Denver here, but basically, we hopped in our Porsche 911 and made a run for Denver. We took the long way across and down which if you haven’t done is simply amazing. If you want to just know if we sold our 1965 Lincoln Continental and 1966 Chevrolet Corvair though, you’re in the right place! So this is the tale about how it went, what we expected, and much more!
