TRICALM Racing does it again!

The race week-end at Circuite Mont Tremblant north of Montreal saw the TRICALM colors on the podium again in the Masters event. This photo on the podium on Sunday featured longtime veteran Canadian racer of over 40 years, the famous Jean-Guy Fournier. On the podium along with Jean-Guy were TRICALM'S own Jim Edmonds and Dr/General Ken Herbst.

ICAR Race Report, July 2015

What an incredible weekend. Racing away from home is always challenging. Add the distance of 2,600 miles and it is amazing what you forget, even lugging 2 additional suitcases of stuff along this trip!

Hot Action Under the California Sun

March 2015 - Test Day

It has been a while since I actually drove a FF for a whole day. Last time was Montreal in 2013, so I was quite excited to finally strap into a car and head out on track for the test day this past Saturday.

I was joined at the track by Alex Herbst, Ken’s other son, so he could familiarize himself with a FF as he has only driven tintops to this point, and Greg Long who wanted to shake down a fresh engine and new eye!


Montreal GP 2015 has been confirmed by Marcel. Our Canadian Summer Tour dates are finally set! 
Montreal GP - June 5 - 7th
ICAR - July 3-5
Temblant  - July 24-26

What a great honor it is to run at some of these iconic tracks. Thanks to Marcel and his group for extending the invitation to our group this year. We look forward to returning and representing Arizona.


Hi Everyone,

Just a quick note, there has been a change to the EFF policies and ALL DRIVERS must now sport the new Sparco drivers suit made especially for us. Please click on read more for further details.

“It’s raining and the track is wet.”

The title of this report is one of a string of quotes from Murray Walker. I grew up watching F1 on Sunday afternoons and one could always count on Murray to find a way to murder the Queen’s English. Here is a couple more for your reading pleasure. “Schumacher wouldn't have let him past voluntarily. Of course he did it voluntarily, but he had to do it.” Also, “I don't make mistakes. I make prophecies which immediately turn out to be wrong.”

1. As if it’s not slippery enough on these first sessions the puddles add a visual reminder to be careful. Savina (read Jens/Lisa) has picked a fine day for her Formula car debut. By all accounts she did great. Her outings bragging rights include being one of only 3 drivers that did NOT test the rotational capabilities of their cars. She also performed many acts of bravery and bravado which I will look forward to reading about in her first race report.

I ran the RF-93K, the first time this car has seen rain or been on the track before 11am! Much laughter was directed at me for cleaning the car immediately on return to the pits. In my defense I was afraid that Mike would arrive and repo the car.

2. The track is drying nicely. The threats of a deluge of Biblical proportions have given way to a partly cloudy, cool and breezy day. Perfect for testing! Had a good second session, I am starting to generate a list of things that need to be moved to get really comfortable in the car. Don’t mention this to Lisa as I am sure she will add one extra cinch to the seat belts just because!

New Racer in the Family

We are proud to welcome the newest member to our racing family. Say hello to Eben Herbst, son of John Herbst and Grandson to Ken and Karen Herbst.

After lengthy discussions with the dog, Eben has decided he too wants a race car. Come on Grandpa, you couldn't possibly say no to that little face.

Congratulations John, Ken and Karen, we look forward to seeing Eben at the track someday.
