Have you ever been told “you can’t do THAT..”? Or “THAT will never work!” Has that statement ever driven you on to prove them wrong? And what does that idea have to do with the Grassroots Motorsports Magazine Ultimate Track Car Challenge anyway?
To answer that, let’s step back 10 years or so to gain a little perspective: Air suspension used to be commonly found in the world of mini-trucks and low riders. The whole idea being to get their vehicles to scrape the ground, sparks flying down the road, ride quality and handling be damned! And to quote Seinfeld: “Not that there’s anything wrong with that”. Bags were just not what anyone would want to use to go fast on a racetrack.
Fast forward to the present. Things have changed in the world of air. Big Time. The problem is, a lot of people associate air suspension with those days and can’t possibly imagine running around a racetrack with a rubber bladder containing air supporting their car! SO it is with the skepticism in mind that we get back to the story of the UTCC and the thought that “you can’t do that”.
