Waterford Hills Race weekend 3

So this race weekend did not go as well as it could have.
During the practice session on Friday I drove off the back straight into the gravel trap. I need to be more careful when using old tires.

Saturday morning we repaired the smashed in front end on the CRX and when I lined up for qualifying and my radiator decided to start leaking, so i ended up missing qualifying, running to a parts store and replacing the radiator at the track. The track officials were Awesome and let me run a quick hot lap to check for leaks.

During the first race that afternoon I started 21st and finished 11th which made for an interesting race. Unfortunately during the session the cooling fan either came unplugged or was never plugged in so the car boiled most of its coolant out by the time i parked it.

Sunday morning's race went well, the car didn't overheat or anything! I moved from 11th place to 8th place during this race.

The Sunday feature race was quite a show, the 2nd place (in my class) car spun on the track in front of me and another car in my class was following close. Near the end of the race the car behind me ran into me pushing my car into the car in front of me. I managed to get the car back on track and finish 3rd in class (5th overall)
