Buccaneer Region Solo Event…Tough Competition

Kim and Per went up to the Buccaneer Region event in Green Cove Springs. The course was tricky with a lot of tight/close offsets that really allowed the car’s rear to step out on the slick surface. We found that the car only became balanced if we stopped cooling down the front tires, essentially “killing” the front traction to keep the car better balanced.

That could be because of a few things, either our alignment needs to be tweaked or the fact that we are running rear tires that are now nearly one year old.

The result of all of this is that we wound up 7th on index and felt that we were at least a second or more off the pace of what the car was capable of. We’ll work on that!

Very good interview! I own 4 of Warren’s cars and love every one of them! Warren’s plight with the press, the race tracks and ignorance from the automotive industry reminds me so much of Preston Tucker. With this interview, you find out that not everyone was ignorant to the truth. A general fear of change still grips many when it comes to new ideas but with time I think you’ll see that History will side with Warren and his wonderful machines!
