Cue tema da vitória!
I had the pleasure of meeting Phil this summer, who is the owner and caretaker of a special Eagle Talon. While DSMs have become known for drag racing over the years. It’s often unknown or forgotten that DSM cars where a force in SCCA competition during the ‘90s.
In a few short hours teams down in Australia will start running the Morning Endurance session down under at the 2015 Formula SAE Australasia competition. Before the session begins, a quick recap of the previous days’ events is necessary.
In a few hours live coverage of the last Formula SAE event of 2015 goes live in a land where it’s always the future (compared to the Americas, anyways). That’s right, in the land of Australia where it’s already Saturday the 2015 Formula SAE Australasia competition takes to the Calder Park Raceway for the first day of…
First off, let me apologize for the wind noise, it was hot as hell, and my man in the drivers seat wanted to roll with the A/C off, so he put the windows down.

Two weekends ago I decided to go to Mid Ohio to watch some good old amateur road racing. I follow the SCCA religiously; the excitement of seeing people like myself battling it out is some of the best racing you can witness. They don’t make much money if any at all from amateur racing but they do it for the love of the…
