Hey guys -

I know this is an AX forum but I just had to share this with you guys...

A friend of mine has a son that is in to racing.
I have been following him for years through karting, pro formula mazda, F4, Asian F3, etc..
He is now almost 20 years old and this year is racing in.,.,,,

Porsche Carrera Cup Italia !!!!!

I was very excited to hear that he is running a Porsche 991 GT3 race car this year.
- the reason I am sharing this with you guys, my Porsche friends ;^)

His first 2 races are this weekend at Monza.
Jaden Conwright #48

I watched a replay of race 1.
He qualifed to start P2 in race 1 and finished the race in 2nd.
- His first race in the 991 !!
It was a fun race to watch, lots of action throughout the field.
I'll watch a replay of race2 tomorrow (replay because the race is at 4am our time!)

In any case, I'm excited for him and his family and wanted to share with you guys.

Watching Jaden racing the Porsche today got the juices flowing and I am now more inspired to get my car fixed and dodge some cones with you guys again. Hopefully my car will be rolling again for the last few events this season.

I hope you all are doing well.
Go fast and be good.

Good to hear from you Joe. I think you told me, but I'm getting old... What ended up being the issue with your engine?

Hey Dave, Mike, Grant & all -

Good to hear from you guys!

Yeah, fun to know someone climbing the Porsche racing ranks.
Just sat down to watch the replay race 2 of the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia.
Looks like Jaden Conwright #48 is starting P5 out of 22 on this one.

As far as my car, Dave, at last November's GGR AX, I lost the cam gear during a run.
Valve train stopped, crankshaft & pistons did not..... Kirplunk :(

Have fun at the zone7 weekend AX event in Marina next weekend!

C-ya,

Took 3rd place.
Great fight for P2 in the last few minutes of the race.

I think I'm hooked....
