Any Cures for "the24hrBUG"? In a couple days, I leave the security of my quiet garage and head with
my wife to the wilds of Utah and the Bonneville Salt Flat where we will
contest our 1957 Volkswagen Oval 3-Fold Ragtop in the Great 36hp
Challenge in the World of Speed. With Tom Bruch's motor behind me- the
speed limit will be at the end of the throttle cable. We call it
"the24hrBUG" because it was built in about a month!
QUESTION: This is
my FIRST race of any kind (I'm 53 years old). I have a combination of
boyhood-type emotions; from the sleepless excitement of a Christmas Eve
to the first time I rode a roller coaster- I'm scared sh*tless. Any
last minute suggestions?
