Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

People were so friendly and just invited us in and said take all the pictures you want. We spent over an hour in the one shop. Some of the guys have been here since the beginning and know all the famous drivers. Hot day here. The old NASPORT crowd threw a dinner party in the pits tonight, that was t...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Another incredible day, saw motoring nirvana today. Races were ok, but not quite the big fields here for some of the classes. Spec Miata should be a good one and the GT 2 race is also running. Saw my friend Glen in his Spec racer, overwhelmed by the level of competition and struggling with car set u...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Race update:

Found the track....no problem today.

GT 1 race was a bit of a parade, Mike Lewis in the Jag just ran away with it.

Troy won.! Joe Huffaker went out on first lap, no idea why. Paul was back in the field.

Cleaning up car, bleeding brakes, valve check, zillion other things.

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

So, you have to ask what happened....... Yesterday on the way to the track,George's and I were a few minutes behind Collin on the highway.....we missed the turn in the sea of traffic.....and proceeded to have a wonderful tour of the Napa wine country....wow did we get turned around. Then, there was ...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

After putting some more wing into the car, tire pressure adjust, couple other small tweaks, Collin picked up some time, 1:41:082 to Mike Lewis's 1:40:947. Collin will run his harder tire compound to Mike running softer compound. Collin feels very confident in this tire choice. Car ran well with no i...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Arrived at Sonoma at 10:30, the sound of race engines at full screaming song! The history here is not lost on me, I was boggled. I had to park a long way from where Collin had his garage, taking me to hiking and then the shuttle. The gang was prepping the car for next qualifying. You would not belie...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

What a day! Up at 5 hit the road at 7. Impressions: Cruise control is good after 1,400 km. These boys know how to farm Said farming puts a lot of dust and particles in the air, could not believe how much in some places. Performance tires are crap for noise on some of the crazy road surfaces, of whic...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

I am in Redding, California, it is 30C out right now! 12 hours to get here including half hour picnic, fuel stop and 2 leg stretches. As the great rolling river that is the I-5, I cannot believe what I encountered with traffic, beyond insane. Back ups that went for 20 miles, 4 lanes wide and stopped...
