The Custom Stoptech brake system was engineered especially for the car. It has wide annulus rotors and endurance spec calipers and pads with super thick brake pads. This was chosen to keep the heat out of the fluid so we could do away with the brake ducting and get the most out of the cars rule limited aero.
I had to figure out what tools to take. The car was pretty dialed but I decided to take just measuring stuff so I could help determine how well the car’s setup was working.
Somehow I got to be the team cook. I am not cooking a gourmet level but am decent. It was a challenge to quickly feed a bunch of hungry guys every day and to come up with a good menu and make good use of leftovers but everyone seemed pretty happy and we saved thousands of dollars!
My stuff is not bad if I don’t say so myself!
The driver Dai Yoshihara arrived late, flying in straight from a Super Trofeo race in Suzuka Japan. He was pretty exhausted and jet-lagged. He flew from FD Road Atlanta to Suzuka to Pikes Peak, with no breaks. Famous guys have a hard life!
