01 May Behind the scenes with 8Star Motorsports.
Ever wondered what happens between races in a Motorsports team? I have recently done a couple of assignments for 8Star Motorsports in Pompano beach, Fl and I have been lucky enough to visit their workshop a few of times between races to witness the amazing work the whole team does to get ready for the race weekend.
Race preparation not only involves working on the car but also upgrading equipment.
The car is stripped in order to check thoroughly every component.
Sometimes minor contact occur requiring some bodywork repair …
… and a lot of cleaning.
Bodywork spares need to be prepped before being painted to the team’s colors …
… which is done in the car paint booth. No need to spray the whole area, orange in this case, nor gather tons of dust on the parts to be painted.
A lot of hours are required to strip the car and rebuild it for the next event.
“Come on baby light my fire …”, no Ray is not trying to set the car on fire, he will let the drivers set the crowd alight with a, hopefully, great result at the next event.
Have a fantastic Wednesday everyone!
