Hi All. Offcamber Autosport sponsored a Pizza party on Wednesday evening at Delaware Valley BMW club's Watkins Glen drivers school. DelVal BMW has been doing this mid week Glen event for many years now. If you haven't attended it, you need to put it on your calendar! A stack of Pizza's, snacks, and drinks were enjoyed by all.
The only sad piece of this party was that OCA was not able to make the event. As we were on-route to the Glen on Wednesday night, our tow vehicle decideded to split the exhaust tube that feeds the turbo, resulting in No-turbo boost. While the truck still ran, you can imagine towing a 20ft box trailer, with a race car inside, tools, etc, was a little heavy to pull all the way uphill to the Glen. The moral of this story is make sure your tow vehicles are 1000% perfect! The worst thing is for your tow vehicle to break down while you are towing. Generally the tow companies will charge you twice, once for the truck, and again for the trailer. A little secret, if you have AAA with RV, and your trailer have living quarters in it (bed, refridge, power, etc), then it counts as an RV, and AAA will tow it for free!
Our next event will be NJ BMW CCA's Summit point weekend on July 23 and 24th. Look for the OffCamber Autosport trailer, and come by and say hi! As time goes by, I will blog about interesting happenings at the shop, and our adventures in racing!
