Thumbs up Come Beat Matt Franc!

From Matt-
----


No not with a baseball bat, nor with his Egbar the dragon suit, with the SBRS Computer Car!

On Saturday, February 19th, the King of Sebring, Matt “5&counting” Franc has kicked in the money (and ego) to reserve the computer car for a one on 75-grudge match. Huge prizes (seat time, clothing, whips, chains, etc.) will be awarded to almost anyone who can beat Matt’s target lap. Here’s how it will work:

Matt will lay down a target time Saturday morning and if anyone can do a lap (recorded by the computer car) that is better than his, they win!

It is going to be a two-lap dash for cash. Just like the tester’s, you (and Franc) will leave the pits of the famous 12-hour course and at the hairpin, the clock will start. After the third time by you will bring it back to the pits (effectively two fliers and a cool off). The price for the fame, glory, money, trophies, and bragging rights of beating Matt Franc is just a mere $150.00 per run! With all proceeds being contributed to the mechanic’s fund!

We are estimating that we can get about 20 people through during the day so if you are interested, get your name on the list early! Matt will be at the track from Thursday on and will have the sign up sheet.

See you there!

That's Sy, always thinking of others first. I'm in, but will let ambition go before reality.

Re: Come Beat Matt Franc!

I think you'd raise more money if you had to beat my lap time.....matt can pay the proceeds... press release would read "Computer Car Raises $4 million for mechanics fund".

Re: Come Beat Matt Franc!

I had the most fun EVER lapping Wed. and Thur. with Matt and Sy at Sebring. Great time guys

Matt, thanks for the insight on the track and running with me, your just damn lucky I needed to leave town for a very important persons Bday. We will meet again during the SEBRING 12 right??

Sy, you were running real nice in practice, congrats! Starting P4 in RACE 1 behind Craig Do-me-again (P1), his "friend" Matt Francfurter (P2), and Matt Varsha, is very respectable. I'm proud of you buddy.

Have great fun and good luck to all four of you guys, be safe!

Peter - HOLY CRAP what an amazing time we had! It was sooooo much fun, it was ridiculous! Thanks for talking me into it. We really missed you after you left - I wish you could have been there for the rest of the weekend.

And a big Thank You to Matt from me, also. I really appreciate all of the help and for the insanely great lapping sessions. And if you need any help from me (it sounds like you might need some, after seeing your wife's post! ) give me a call!

Re: Come Beat Matt Franc!

For the 8Th year in a row I left my wonderful wife to go racing at Sebring Fl. For the last 2 years Craig Duerson has kicked my sorry ass at my track. As I will not relinquish my O Sebring crown I must say this weekend I was the queen for 2 days. Good job Craig and next year I will be wearing my crown for my wifes Bday. 2005 her Bday is on Monday.

Thanks hun your the best for putting up with me.


60% vs 40%.... Is Still King O Sebring!
