We used to race in division 2 category,but we always went for race in a super category as well,where we had to race with stronger, much more modified cars.
2008 it was a very successful year for us.....
We won the championship in our (div 2) category,and we won the super category as well! So we were a DOUBLE CHAMPIONS..... :)
Once it was a race for team members (mechanics).It was like every team can nominate a mechanic who can drive a car on a same race track,so every driver was a mechanic who normally work i the pit lane.
I WON this race with this car..... :) :)
We had no technical fault or problem,the whole car worked well,and my friend drove brilliantly... :) we were and still are proud of the result...
But after finish of the season something bad happened....it was an extra race just for fun and my friend said i deserved to drive it again and have fun....the things started well ,but after a fast corner i slipped out of the track and i crashed the car badly...front end ,rear end,roof damaged...it was my worst nightmare to see the car in a state like that......
But my friend told me: nevermind! im sure u can repair it......
I said (in tears): yes i will do,and it will be nicer than ever!
We put it in the garage for a rest....
Few weeks later my friend said he is thinking about a different project....he would like to try the rally...
That was the point where the VFTS project started.....
(i should have a pic about the car after the crash.i will put it here if i find it)
Anyway he wanted to rebuild the crashed body,so what u will see on the next pictures,is the same car like this blue here....
