We are pleased to report that the Carrera RX is now running very well indeed and we have been enjoying the car a lot visiting several cars and coffee events including an impromtu dash 200 miles up north to vist our 83 UR Quattro build at Cherry Classic Cars after our van blew a turbo hose.

We also attended the Woodward Dream Cruise and the Detroit Car week with the car.

Meantime we fabbed up a gauge pod to house the AFR gauge connected to the wide band o2 sensor we had installed while the engine was out.

This week we are dragging the car up to Empire, Michigan where it will once again be functioning as the course opening car. Maybe see you up there?

Like this?







Ask for work.
If they don't give you work, ask for bread.
If they do not give you work or bread, then take bread.

I think you're asking a little too much! after all, the title mentions rally-cross.

Do you mean "again"? Next race is September 23rd, assuming it survives being zero car at this weekend's hill climb.

Rally-cross is waaaaaaaay too overated dude.

This is real racing!





Of course, the zero dildo need to be specially prepped.

Don't want to be as aggressive as Vince but I was under the impression that you only do exhibition type ''racing''. Zero cars don't race, If you wonder if your car will survive the job you have some underlying issues you need to address.

It's been a busy few weeks fro the CarreraRX. A couple of car shows, pace car duties and even a race!




First up was pace car duty at the Empire Hill Climb in Northern Michigan. Normally we get to run a few parade laps up the hill but due to time constraints caused by the number of entries fun was restricted to escorting the cars from down town to the base of the hill. This is necessary as most of the cars are not street legal but need to use public roads from staging to the start. There were plenty of interesting cars on display too:









The following weekend was our (now seemingly) once a year RallyCross event with the Detroit region SCCA. As these were only a few days apart we let the CarreraRX sleepin the trailer.




Made some new friends and got the car nice and dirty.

Last weekend's adventure was to the car show held as part of the Speed Ring festival at M1 Concourse. At just over a mile from our shop we really couldn't miss this one. The event was primarily a Time Attack weekend but we did come away with two awards for looking pretty while stationary.




The car is resting for a couple of weeks in preparation for posing about at the Lake Superior Performance Rally (LSPR) in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where it will get to meet non-other then Hannu Mikola! Should be fun.

RALLY LEGEND MEETS RALLY LEGEND

No, the guy on the left met the CarreraRX.



Last weekend we made our annual pilgrimage to the Lake Superior Performance Rally to hang out with our Group B rally car mates only this year there was a special treat laid on my the Guys from Dirtfish Rally School in the form of one Hannu Mikkola. Hannu was one of the first works Audi Quattro drivers and a true motorsport legend. Dirtfish also brought with them a replica of the MK2 Escort Hannu drove in Europe and a pristine Audi Sport Quattro. Hannu drove the Audi with us on Thursday up and back down the Keweenaw Peninsula then drove the Escort during shakedow, a couple of stages as course opener and then, again with us in the super special last stage in downtown Houghton.

There is a Flickr album documenting this occasion [URL="[url]https://www.flickr.com/photos/team_illuminata/albums/72157688327619073/with/24039102278/"[/url];]here[/URL] but here are a few appetizers:
