    Did I mention that the great Ed Ericson is up on the hill working turn 7 withy son David. They’ve had to assist with about a half dozen incidents with cars and guard rails and cars and trees.

    Bill, before the next hillclimb, please google how to reduce wind noise on your Go Pro. (If we could hear the exhaust, we would know your shift points and the video would be much better.) Please don’t think that I didn’t enjoy your YouTube postings.Royal2015-06-28 16:44:28

    I agree, the wind noise is annoying, sorry.

    Really enjoyable post!  Yes, a very respectable time.  Are the specs for your car listed anywhere?

    Thanks.  Did you need to narrow the Mustang II rear?

    Every year, Bill Shields, another Hillclimb driver and renowned MGB builder throws a party at his farm. I never took the time to attend, but my son came over and took me. Quite impressive. Tons of food, live band and the collection of cars brought by other attendees was amazing. His barn was also full of interesting stuff.

    There was an XK120, a ’61 Morgan, an original TC, Triumphs…Quite the impromptu car show.

    Found this tucked away in the barn/workshop. An early Ford Cosworth Cortina stashed away also amongst tons of engines, transmissions, racks, axles, wheels, etc.

    My first piece of advice is to avoid Mexican food. ❗

    No that I got that out of my system…

    I have foam covers that slip over the heads of my vocal microphones to reduce wind noise. They come in “fur” also.

    Thinking there had to be something similar for video recorders, I did a little searching and found this, they have one for the go pro:

    Well, it’s that time of year again. Pagoda Hillclimb June 25-26. One TDr is registered to compete. Volunteer corner workers are welcome. (The best place to be if not behind the wheel)
