DG- Spec Scion Video from Round 4 at Buttonwillow

While I was gone getting married, the DG- Spec Scion with Scott Webb, and Dan Gardner at the helm finished first, in the debut for the Garrett turbo power. We put a lot of thought, and work into the turbo setup, with the help of all the sponsors, especially Dezod Motorsports, Garrett turbochargers, and Goodrich. Goodrich provided us with a lot of braided line and fittings to get the water cooled turbo and wastegate on the car. The turbocharger is a new GTX turbocharger from Garrett. Power was, as always undisclosed. Torque was vastly improved, but again all top secret information.
The DG-Spec team takes home another 1st Place victory in Round 4 of the Western Endurance Racing Championship (WERC) at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. This race marked the first outing for the DG-Spec tC since the team converted from supercharger to a Garrett turbo setup.

GT1 Nissan GT-R : Sumo Power at Navarra, Spain

Sumo Power #20 and #21 Nissan GT-R's

While on my honeymoon, I had a chance to go to a FIA GT1 race at the Navarra Circuit in Spain. For the last few years, I have been involved with the Nissan GT-R, and I talk to a lot of people from around the globe. One day, fairly randomly, Andy Barnes from Sumo Power asked me if I had a chance I should attend a GT1 race. Looking at my wedding day, and the race schedule, Navarra Spain on July 2nd and 3rd sounded perfect. Andy put me into contact with a few people from his organization, and everything came together. Don't think this was only my idea as my wife is also involved in the automotive industry, and we met while racing a Nissan Skyline GT-R. Nissan Skyline GT-R at Sebring 2006
We flew into Madrid and had a chance to sight see, and visit several museums over the first few days in Spain. Everything can't be race cars and racing.  At least not on your honeymoon.
