Big win for Scratcher

Paul Costas is making the most of the “Think Fast” approach to racing. He unearthed a partially completed GT-1 Camaro project and bought it for pennies on the dollar, completed it in a very cost-effective manner, spent real money only on hardware that offered a near-certain performance payoff, and modified and developed the car in a very logical process. He has created a very inexpensive but scary-fast dominant track day car in the process. Early on, the bodywork of the car seemed to have a mind of its own, which resulted in some injuries and the car’s name: Scratcher. The best part of this car is the fact that it has a passenger seat, so he can share the thrills.

His latest escapade included stomping the Time Trial Unlimited class by big margins both days at the North American Road Racing Association competition at Texas World Speedway. Major congrats to Paul and the team who helped with this most excellent achievement! The team members are Nicholas Valentin, Ron Miller, Gary Robertson, Anna Comigore Costas, Louis Gigliotti, and Yours Truly. Paul regularly returns the favor for me by guiding me in the right direction as the Witchdoctor of Strategery for ThinkFast Engineering.
