2010 March 1st: Vintage Formula Vee "MAJOR FUN on a MINOR BUDGET" by Dan Davis of Victory Lane Magazine. Don’t scrub speed and drive with your fingertips, use all the track for track-out, keep the accelerator wide open, stay off the brakes, maintain rpm, maintain momentum – all these instructions were coming to me from the F-Vee owner and champion F-Vee racer. It was my first few practice sessions for a vintage enduro at Sears Point Raceway. The goal was to match his 2-minute flat lap. He had achieved this after the second practice session in the very vintage, very well set-up and legal, very period prepared 1964 Autodynamics F-Vee. Yes, I did hit the magic 2 minute mark and equally satisfying we won the one hour vintage enduro overall!
