Default Pulled over in Formula car and wearing Miataturbo.net T-shirt

Our Formula team had a drive day a couple weeks ago and we got a nice photo opportunity with the city of Albany's finest in our 2010 car. He said he would bring a marked patrol car next time we're out.

I just happened to be wearing my miataturbo.net shirt, so I thought I would post.

Nice.

I wish our team hadn't switched over to hybrids.

Bwa ha ha! That's perfect. Love having a Formula Beaver car. You really need to put more work into the "beaver" theme though.

Too bad there's no room for a beaver, should this car be a magnet for said product. I mean people.

I went to one meeting when I was down there. Then left the school. What could've been...that thing looks awesomely fun.

Well for our 2009 car we called it the Beaver thumper because it was the first year we switched to a single cylinder.

But the paint scheme on our 09 car was supposed to be a parody of the red bull paint scheme with a beaver instead of a bull and orange nose instead of yellow etc.

Unfortunetley, since last year we are no longer Beaver Racing but Global Formula Racing due to our international collaboration with a German school DHBW.

Awesome.

I have nothing to contribute, but I'll have you know I keep cracking up at the thought of the third pic down with the caption "WTF is this ****?".
