Formula E 2021 at Brooklyn, New York

My first event of the 2021 racing season took place this past weekend just across the river from home, in Brooklyn NYC. It was my first time being on the scrutineering team though the role didn’t differ much from the previous two NYC FE’s I did as a Pit Lane marshal. I was tasked with […]

Charade Circuit France

Whenever I travel I research Motorsport events in the area I’m visiting to see if I could participate. I was very tempted to sign up for a round of Formula Truck at Charade Circuit in France while attending my cousin’s wedding nearby… and there I faced a dilemma if I were to actually sign up […]
