2012 – By the Numbers

Wow. Our second season back after our seven year vacation. It sure flew bye because here it is December, and the seasons long over. Reflecting back on our second year my thoughts turn to the numbers. Being an accountant I just seem to think in numbers. So here is our 2012 season, BY THE NUMBERS.

  • 2 Great New Sponsors. Quality Tire Service Ltd. and Knight Archer Insurance Ltd.
  • 13 Events Attended. Eleven  Race Events and Two Car Shows which took us to six different Communities – Saskatoon, Weyburn, Estevan, Yorkton, Medicine Hat and Edmonton. The Events that we attended added three tracks to the previous total of twelve tracks we had competed at. You can see a complete list of the tracks we have attended in the History Section of the web site.
  • 19,000 Kilometers driven attending events, maintaining the Cuda and attending to sponsorship commitments.
  • 28 Nights in Hotels on the road.
  • 64 Total runs for the Year comprising 7 test n tune runs, 42 time trails, 15 eliminator runs with 10 round wins and 5 losses.
  • 10.486 ET at 125.44 with a 60 foot time of 1.41. This was our best performance to date since returning to the track in 2011.

The numbers add up to a great year and as we all know, “Any Day With The Race Car At the Track or On the Road is a Great Day.”

 

See you next year.

George and Diane.
