Almost Everything Formula Car at Infineon Raceway

Here's a very nice photo of the Almost Everything Pro Formula Mazda during testing at Infineon Raceway in Sears Point, California. Lloyd Read won the 2011 Goodyear Formula Car Challenge series championship driving for Almost Everything. So far this year, Read and Almost Everything have taken the pole in race 3 and finished 1st in race 4. Engine problems knocked us out of competition in races 1 & 2. 

The Formula Car Challenge Presented by Goodyear is part of the "Road to Indy" that trains drivers and showcases talent to F1 and Indianapolis 500 teams. Read joins a very elite alumni that includes NASCAR and Formula One star Scott Speed, Indy drivers Marco Andretti and Graham Rahal and NASCAR/Champ Car/GTP driver Michael McDowell.

Microfiber--Worth the (Small) Expense

Get a few microfiber cloths. Almost Everything Autobody recommends them to wash, wax & polish your vehicle. They don't scratch like other cloths.
Folks who are particular about the finish on their cars know that the first time a sponge or towel is used to wash a car, it leaves fine scratches in the paint. Over time, these scratches multiply and cause the car to look dull.

There is no way to avoid this issue completely but microfiber helps a lot. It is high tech stuff. The material is made of super thin, super soft synthetic fibers. It was first developed in the 1950s but it wasn't until 2007 that Rubbermaid introduced the first microfiber cleaning products in the USA. Microfiber holds up to eight times its weight in water, attracts and contains dust and oils and causes minimal scratches to paint. Just be careful to turn the cloth often to prevent grit that accumulates on the cloth from causing scratches to the surface being cleaned. The cloth can be washed & used over & over.

Almost Everything Autobody gave away hundreds of these cloths at the Washington High School Car Show and the Tri-City Motor Rally at Newpark Mall. They proved so popular that we are planning to give one to customers when they pick-up their cars. People have asked where we get ours--we buy in bulk from Maxim Mart.

We saw this brilliantly executed turn in a Lamborghini Gallardo first on Yahoo this past weekend and again on WreckedExotics.com today. It has over 12M views on YouTube but it is really too good not to post here too.

Nothing To Do With Cars

Tonight's post has nothing to do with cars. Someone sent us a link to Clark Little Photography. I'm a scuba diver in my spare time and Clark's photos reminded me of the best times in the water. His work is stunning. Have a look!
