Thoughts: Finally enjoying on line racing here at R2P. Never had good experience before, people were either extremely fast (damn aliens) or slow (newbies) or anoying who would just crash into anything or anyone. So, long time ago I had given up online racing but even though a little late coming back to it, finding a balanced and regulated online community is very full filling.
Speed and ability wise I would consider myself a midfield racer. I enjoy setting the cars for the race as much as the racing itself.
I have always been a team player and racing together with my son Troy (see pic on the right) makes it all the more worthwhile when it comes down to team competition. We raced together a lot in a short time period and earned 9 team championships in first 4 seasons, just before our 100th race here at R2P. I am very happy about that.
Team Championships now: 14
(and still counting)
See you on track, and make sure bring your teammate :)
