Default LIC Motorsports (RTA Pahrump, NV Race Report)

Redline Time Attack (Round 7) - Spring Mountain, Pahrump, NV 09.26-27.2009

As always, LIC Motorsports has been predictable about one thing...waiting to the last minute to make "critical decisions". The idea was tossed around about going to the Redline Time Attack event in Pahrump, NV but it was quickly shot down as the cost of the adventure would be too much for a little ole shop like LIC. But the story doesn't end there, it's just getting started, our time line will reflect on our chaos we put upon ourselves.

09.22.2009 (Tuesday) - A phone call was placed to Toyo Tires to attempt a crack at securing a sponsorship (Partial, full, anything). Spoke to a very nice gentleman and mentioned our story and asked for him not to base their decision on my words and me "asking for a free handout" which I was not. I was told immediately that they will not give me a full sponsorship as that's not how it's going to work. I requested that I send them some info on the car, and then a more educated decision can be made. Sometime later that day I was offered a deal, it was not exactly what I was hoping for but at this stage of competition it was a bit better than what I was getting before and I was happy a company to the likes of Toyo even offered us some assistance. I happily accepted and thanked Toyo for taking a leap on a no name company like LIC Motorsports.

truthfully speaking the recognition should not shine solely on us...without the support of you guys (Crawford Performance) and select others, our car would not be where its at.

often times folks see one name and feel its all about that name, what they don't see is the countless back breaking hours provided by each and everyone of the people that it takes to make it all function in extreme conditions (such as racing).

I thank you guys for providing us top notch support, and the motor/tuning package speaks for itself <-- its still running and not a single adjustment was needed at last weekends race NOW that says something.

Subiefest 2009 - Willow Springs, Rosamond, CA 10.10.2009

The week preceding the event date LIC Motorsports made the call to not attend this event due to our 3rd place last Redline Time Attack event (our suspension was not up to task for an unlimited class event) and quite frankly not being in a position to afford another 3 sets of tires. Aside from the money factor being a big issue; we started to develop braking issues at the last event and we were now fighting our braking bias being way off. We were hesitant knowing that Willow Springs is a very fast track and brakes would play a crucial role. With the car on the back burner we focused on our daily operations and wrenching on customers cars.

About 5 days prior to the event I received a phone call from Mike Warfield at GST Motorsports to see if we would be attending this year's event. I mentioned my situation and predicament; his response was "come on mate, this is an all Subaru event and one that you should come show the LIC Motorsports car", I agreed with everything he was saying but addressed my lack of funds for tires and that our car would have to be in the Unlimited Class as opposed to the street class (Normally the LIC Motorsports car runs in a modified class and is setup as such), Mike said he had some take off/throw away Hankook C91's that I could have as they were just taking up space and awaiting disposal. Knowing I would be potentially racing others with the same tires and/or full slicks, I figured it was better than nothing. I also made a call to the good folks at Wheeldude to acquire a few sets of Rota DPT 18x10 wheels as our tires were a bit stretched on the previous setup....continue to rest of report here: LIC Motorsports Subiefest Race Report
