Best part of the day was sitting on the Bondurant HQ patio talking with Emerson Fittipaldi. He told some old-school war stories and talked to us about his transition from driving road coarses to ovals. He couldn't be a nicer guy and loved to talk racing. While we were on the road coarse, Bob and Emerson took a ZR1 on course and ripped of hot-laps. Bob is 71 and Emerson is 63 and they both still have it...big-time. Towards the end of the session, I caught and followed Bob in the ZR1 playing lead-follow with Pietro Fittipaldi. This is not something I will soon forget.
Me with Bob and Emerson
Now back to Bondurant for a shifter kart class....(updated) and now it is moved to Saturday night due to rain.
