Slow and steady…

Car prep updates:

Engine installation work continues. Definitely going with a crank sensor for a distributorless ignition system. Installed the oil cooler and oil catch can with braided stainless lines and AN fittings. Rear brakes are installed and ready. Placement is finalized for co-driver footswitches (ODO reset and Horn). At this pace, Olympus is now looking like a maybe. We’ll be taking this weekend off for the Doo Wop Rally.

Tom, Suzy and a guest will be working as road marshals on corners on the Pico stage on Saturday and a morning stage on Sunday.

Don will be keeping in practice by co-driving for Californian Andrew Lockhart in another VW Golf. They’ll be testing out the DemonRally tracking system if possible, while aiming for a finish, some fun, and a Gp2 win, in that order.

Keep checking here for updates over the weekend!


Wild West Rally

Friday, September 26th, 2008

There are changes afoot in the DemonRally camp. We’re contemplating a website redesign with some new colors: maybe red, gold and black? We’re working on getting ready for the start of the 2009 season in several ways as well.

One of those ways is keeping in practice however possible. Tom is constantly using his driving skills, so I thought it might be nice to put my co-driving skills to some use. I’ve volunteered to ride with Jay Woodward in car #335 at this weekend’s Wild West Rally in Pomeroy, Washington. It should be fun, as our goal is to put the car back on the trailer at the end of the rally without using a winch.

I’ll be testing out that Twitter idea I had a while ago. To see how it works, follow me at DemonRally on Twitter or visit to follow the action via the web. Let’s hope my phone works out there! If not, I’ll report back here with results.
