October 2014

Dear Friends:

Catalog 23 As you may know we have spent some time getting our new Catalog 23 ready. It has just been mailed and you will be receiving yours soon if you already do not have it. It is chock-full of new stuff and we are "cautiously optimistic", as they say, you will approve!

If it is October it must mean Carrera Panamericana time! Read somewhere a long time ago one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. So here we are back at it, challenging 2000 miles of Mexico's curviest roads for the 25th or 26th time since 1987. Madness...

La Carrera Panamericana One would think I'd get over the madness. After all I've won the event, placed 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc., and crashed out and ended up in a hospital, so what else is there to prove? Nothing to prove, but the excitement of racing in a country that truly appreciates motor racing, plus seeing many, many old friends from years past.

These are rewards enough.

Come Friday, October 17, Angelica and I will be at the starting line in Veracruz, ready to blast off for a week of who-knows-what, and hoping to end up seven days later in Durango in First Place.

Stay tuned. Our website will have updates.
