La Carrera Panamericana get-together in San Francisco
Ok, so it wasn't a big get together but it was a fun one. Meet Tom from Dover Brothers Racin who resides in Michigan. I had a great time talking about cars and ham sandwiches while we took in a few random site around San Francisco and enjoyed a nice lunch. Tom is the one with the Morgan baseball cap, not the one with the lease.
Tom had lots of helpful advice on what to expect and believe me it's all welcome advice too. What I enjoyed most about Tom today was his upbeat outlook racing in last years La Carrera Panamericana. Several times he mentioned how much he enjoyed not only the build process and the racing but in fact the culture, the country and the people the latter of which seemed to hit home the most. A true gentleman and someone who will be most welcome at any event I look forward to meeting him again and hopefully his teammate George as well.
