I have seen the hillclimbing and it's wicked ... F3000 hillclimb
...to be honest when I saw that you commented on this thread I was expecting to see you say that that's your buddy's car and he lives down the street from you
You know a lot of guys with a lot of cool cars, or at least you make it seem that way.
Well i did live in England and most of my friends there studied Motosport and now work for companies like HKS Europe
, Williams, Sumo Power.
Plus i went to alot of the motorsport venues.
I ve met most of the major tuners like Roger Clark and Simon Norris and lots of others.
In the video you posted there are two people i know. One is the RC Development Evo 6 (12sec in the clip) and the other is the Black Auto Ergonomics Evo 8 (23sec in the clip).
I dont say it to show off or nothing. To me it is a priviledge to have met and talked with some of these guys. And some of them are so good at what they do that folks like me couldnt even dream of being as good.
On top of that i have met some Big names in motorsport. I used to be involved in many ways with the Rally Acropolis in Greece few years back. So i got to meet real legends like Colin McRae, Ari Vatanen and allot of others. I even had a drink with Nikki Lauda once while i was still in the UK and he is my second biggest idol after Senna.
So i guess i ve been pretty lucky.
Just dont think i am saying that i know this people simply to show off! Both drivers and engineers when it comes to any form of motorsport are people i thoroughly seek to meet and talk to simply out of admiration.
And more or less i have always been in and around people who work and co-operate with this people in some way.
