BDR OffSeason Report #1

For Immediate Release, October 17 2004

With the season over, the BDR crew can now recuperate and plan for next season’s series.

Standings: There were several BDR members in the SCCA points chase this year. Here’s how it all sorted out at year-end:

  • Andy P: 7th overall, D Stock
  • Chris H: 16th overall, D stock
  • Jake W: 10th overall, STS
  • Slava B: 17th overall, STS
  • Prinya S: 25th overall, STS
  • John W: 6th overall, STX

Brandon also had an awesome season (2nd overall in STX, damn the Conspiracy!) but it was not under the BDR flag. Next year, it will be.Vinyl: BDR stickers are in the works. “I don’t think I have any more room for stickers, but I’ll try” said vinyl addict Andy P. The stickers will be black (for stealth) and ambiguous as to their meaning. All the better to intimidate riceboys and domestic knuckle draggers at stoplights. “Whoa – BDR? Don’t they make turbos as big as my head?” “Yeah man, I’m running a BDR-50 with 87 pounds of boost”.

Going: Chris Hall, because of his unhealthy addiction to being athletic instead of simply sitting in his car, may be autocrossing much less next year.

Arriving: BDR welcomes STX #14 and fellow Mini-hunter Brandon F to the team. One theory is that he looked at the other BDR times and is just using it as an opportunity to get free pizza.


  • The nut behind the wheel – everyone’s #1 reason for slow times. BDR is planning to do an autocross school before the start of the season to make sure that the nuts are as tight as they can be.
  • John has delusions of grandeur for the 2005 season. Aside from the school, he will be buying some coilovers with federal pound-me-in-the-ass spring rates to replace his comfortable but understeer-prone STi type RA setup. One of these days he might actually get inspired to install that uppipe he has had for about a year now. (He finally bought gaskets.) Big thanks to Fatih at SELGP for the advice and assistance. John is also stumped as to what tires he should run for next year – the STX “cheater” tires from nationals may be calling his name.
  • Jake will be getting his butt planted and a slight lightening with his soon-to-be had TRD seat. He will probably be joining the Subzero crew as well, with some Falkens.
  • Slava will be running in DSP next year. Slava will be the first *SP BDR member. w00t!
  • Prinya may be in a different car for next year – perhaps an Evolution. (Please stay in A stock!)
  • Eric “may” be reprazenting the raw powa of the Scion tC next year. Classing is not set yet.

Look for sheer, awesome dominance (or at least, better times) out of BDR in 2005.
