Working on the Manx ...

On Saturday, August 3rd, I spoke with M.O.R.E. Race Director Bill Markel. He's linked Mx4Mamm blog onto the MORE website in the "Welcome" section ( and onto his Facebook page (Bonfire Racing). Thanks Bill!

Currently we're working on purchasing a fuel cell and some other safety items. With the race only two months away, race prep on the car is getting underway.

Thanks to Jeff Franklin and Launch Motorsports (, I have a helmet and race suit. Next I need to purchase a pair of those fancy Crow race booties! Too bad they don't sell them in pink. I guess I'll have to settle for a sleek black pair. Or maybe red?
