“Satisfied With Acceleration”

Car #45 ran competitive times in acceleration this noon. Their planned sprints were postponed about an hour due to a low battery.
As mantioned many times before, S&T deliberately designs for handling speed, not so much to be a drag race blaster. We’ve heard somewhere that races are won in the turns, not the straightaways, and it’s the turns that really gets the customer’s adrenaline, uh, racing..
There’s a few hours of down time before the Miners hit the autocross track, maybe as late as 5:00 p.m. this afternoon.
If anyone gets bored (hardly possible!) they only need to wander over to the grandstand area where American-style drag races, complete with Confederate flags, ear-splitting exhaust, and lot of burnout smoke.
Laughed Nick Schweissguth, “who knew we’d come this far to see American muscle cars?”
What would a blog post be without mentioning our wonderful Mittweida hosts. Uve and Jens’ crew had some good acceleration times, but it’ll be this evening before we get more specific scores.
Note: You upper-middle aged guys whose first car was a little 1950s four-seater, we hear that you can still rediscover your first automotive love in Europe. Switzerland and Denmark are known as the vintage car hotspots. It might be a little pricey, but she’ll still be every bit as beautiful as you remember. And she won’t mind your paunch and grey hair even a little bit.
So, what are you waiting for?
