We took a pretty bad beating at the Mint 400 and the team decided it was time for a complete teardown of 1107 to prep for our next run at the Baja 1000. We've had a few things we've wanted to do for some time. Step one was moving the car to Carson City where Romy and Jenn could focus on it in their copious free time.
Now that 1107 has been released, people have had some time to drive and quite a few have posted their drive videos online.
I wish I could say we won, or at least finished the Mint 400, but neither was the case. The car was in good shape, the team was ready, but luck wasn't with us. More on that.
We’ve been under NDA for so long I feared we may perish! It’s official that 1107 is in Forza Horizon 2 from Turn 10 Studios. FH2 has sold more than 1.4 million copies worldwide and we are part of the the March DLC car pack that also includes one from some guy named Turner Foust.
We’re getting 1107 dialed for the Mint 400 and the team took 1107 (soon to be 4707) to Prairie City SVRA for a pre-race shakedown test. Everything is working as planned and from there the car was off to our sponsor Wallentine Motorsports for installation of a new radio cable.
