Greg Vasileff’s MINI Cooper S race car is now at MINI of Inskip. They are sponsoring his vehicle and he now has a cool place to store it for the off-season.
I have been offering technical help when I can to Greg since last winter. I had a chance to visit with him and see the car in person at NHMS this past summer.

The car is great looking, fast and real crowd favorite. I am happy to be on board. What ever that entails.

Onboard with Greg at new Hampshire Motor Speedway
Some discussion about that day at the track. As described by Greg.

….I must also thank Nick Czerula from Bentley Publishing. His input has been invaluable. Thanks to Bentley for coming on board as a sponsor. Fact is that this entire build was done with my Bentley manual by my side. I’m on my second one as my first has been beaten to death. ….

When you just HAVE to finish the race.

throttle cable repair

With less than a mile left in a stage of the Ralley de Serrians in France, the throttle cable in our hero’s Renault finally gives up the ghost. Does he give up? No! Does the team try to push their way to the finish? Hell no! The driver tells his co-pilot to man the wheel while he hops into the engine bay, pulls the hood over himself and then manually controls the throttle cable bracket to a heroic finish. The picture above speaks for itself.
