    Yesterday, Mike and I were on a field trip to Nevada scoping out Reno Fernley Raceway for our upcoming 24 Hr. of LeMons Race there next weekend. We were checking out things like who delivers pizza to the track, who pumps the cheapest gas, and the hours of the three parts stores in town to make sure Tinyvette and our drivers and crew remain happy. The guy at the NAPA store mentioned that there was a dirt track Opel GT racing in the area. This must be the one! Fallon is just "up the road a piece" from Fernley.

    Beautiful car and nice touch with the speed limit sign in the background. If you guys get down to Sacramento Raceway, let us know so NorCal Opelers can come out to cheer you on.

    Also, many thank's to John and Danny, who run the Fernley Reno Raceway, for allowing Mike to walk and photograph the track and letting me run the track more times than I should have in my Tacoma pickup. One of the carpenters working on the buildings said I was getting respectable times (for a pickup). If I took one more lap, Danny was going to charge me for "Test and Tune" track rental.

    Anyway, glad to hear that Opels live on even in the middle of the Nevada high desert.

    yes. thats the car. and the car is in fernley so if you need something, my dad has a lot of opel stuff there. i think 3 gts and a kadette and misc parts.
    we used to run the fernley dirt track but made a commitment to fallon this season. may be back next year in fernley.
