Spending some quality time at the local junk yard picking apart a white Mazda3 hatch. Didn’t have most of the parts we needed but westwood got some straight body parts!

Sad day in our garage. Both cars had issues that took us out of contention. Betty with a trailing arm bolt and the 3 had a bad rear hub or bearing.
Fixing the 3 to go back out to finish the day.

Pretty eventful day at NH today. Mazda came in for some penalties, the RX may have got pushed a little off the track.
RX in P2, 3 in P14, one lap down on B class win.
Kickin pot luck tonight, can’t wait for another day of racing!

Thompson race is in the books!
Congrats to Towlie for winning overall again. They had to work hard for it, there was close racing happening for a lot of the weekend.
The Cressida finished P7 with minimal issues except for a BS black flag.
The Mazda suffered with a broken exhaust flex joint that stopped air flow and caused everything under the car, including fuel lines to get hella hot and almost gassed out the drivers. Running in P5 and leading class by a lot when we took it off track mid afternoon on Saturday. Fixed it and went back out to take the checker Saturday, no problems on Sunday.
As always, it was a fantastic weekend. Wonderful weather, great turnout at the potluck, thanks for everyone who made it a special weekend.
Can’t wait to dominate in NH!

All three cars finished the day! Mazda fixed the exhaust, cressi had a flag which delayed them and Towlie is leading the race! Exciting day!

I’d say it shouldn’t be like this.

The first casualty.
3 Pedal was kicking ass and then the Mazda exhaust blew open, boiling all fluids and Chris’s foot. Brought it in for safety’s sake.
The Cressida and Towlie still kicking it!

What A day! Two of 3 cars tested, which was awesome! We tracked hard and the result was what we were hoping for.
Minimal party on Friday, everyone is ready to race tomorrow!!

Such a fond memory of the fiberglass adventure of fixing the boat’s bow after it crashed a few too many times.

20/07/2023

Found a friend at the bar who was willing to listen to all my racecar stories!

11/06/2023

Towelie won(?) - Congrats friends!!!

10/06/2023

It’s been an exciting day of racing so far. Cressida developed a hole in a power steering line, Mazda spewed gas from the tank after filling, Cressida got hit. At least the RX is doing well in the top 10. All cars are back out on track!
Lots of racing left to go!

It’s a fabulous game of throwing the d**g into the hot tub. Can you do it?

Don’t stop believing!

Race recap!
Our team was pretty thin this race, with just Chris Chrissy and Eric J. Kritzler racing the Mighty Mazda3 at Pitt this weekend. Without much of our normal support team, posting to social media was not top of mind!
No testing on Friday, as everyone knew the track well. You likely saw our theme, the giant spy balloon, which was hilarious until it hit the roof of the garage and broke. Though Eric stayed in crazy person theme most of the weekend!
Saturday was some good, casual racing- Eric, Chrissy, Eric, Chris for the driver order. 1.5 hour stints, casual pit stops, coming in for broken cool shirts and the like. (It’s glorious not trying to win!)

Saturday night, we celebrated with friends over a potluck that was well attended and had desserts galore! Brian made smoked brisket for everyone to share and Eric was an awesome DJ as usual! Thank you to everyone that attended and brought something!

Sunday was another beautiful day! Our drivers were Eric then Jeremy from GHIT/Monkey House. Chrissy got in and 3 laps later, brought it in with a significant shake at full throttle going straight. Chris confirmed, the same new axle that was just replaced went bad again. Eric runs to the store while we start packing. Axle is replaced in 10 min, Chrissy goes out for an hour, Eric and Chris to follow. 15 min before the checker, Chris brings it in and parks it with a drivers side front issue, thinking it’s a flat tire, likely that axle is bad.
Cheered on our friends at Siso and Scope Creep (Aspen) for winning A and B class, both battles were hard fought and well deserved!
Thank you to Garage Heros in Training for camp sharing and making our weekend!
Sorry for no pictures! See you all in NJ with better axles.

Going down the straight, the car starts to shake. Bring it in, brand new axle is broken. Sourcing another, will hope to get out before the checker.

We wanted permission to shoot down the balloon… that may not have existed.

14/04/2023

There is a general weather balloon that seems to be traveling through Pitt Race.

08/04/2023

Instead of a selfie of Chrissy driving the race car home from the garage, something in the clutch/trans went crunch, so now it gets winched it into the trailer and it will be a long week of trying to get it fixed before Pitt.

26/03/2023

In times of sadness, we should lean on each other. Today the whole team and many other friends shared great stories, laughs and tears about a wonderful friend and teammate, Aaron. He will be greatly missed.
Thanks for all of the love and support. ❤️

We lost one of our family members yesterday. Aaron was 3PM through and through, from the logo on his racing suit to the wartburgers he was famed for loving then eating.
He had the biggest heart, was an incredibly passionate racer and mechanic and loved to make people laugh!
Racing will never be the same. Aaron’s place on the team will never be able to be properly filled.
Hope he gets to race as much as he wants, because we all know how he often wished to be on the track.
