Was at Shannonville on Saturday to help out with the Time Attack event.

Busy day - lots of track time - Lapping in the morning in groups by class - to get baseline timing for grid order - and then timed runs in the afternoon. Rain/sun/rain made it interesting. A few people went off but nothing serious - just some agricultural work.

They ran the "pro" track - Turn 2 is pretty awesome - it's got a bit of banking - and you can really carry serious speed through there.

I got a chance to take some pictures in between grid setup -> I didn't get some of the really cool cars in the Mod classes (there was a guy there in a blue/white vette - apparently he's 80-85 yrs old - and still tearing up the track. Kit cars, a white radical with a hybrid v8 made out of 2 hyabusa motors - crazy...

MCO + M&M sponsored a BBQ dinner at the end of the day (50 - 60 ppl). Good times all around.

This is what i started doing, and its a ton of fun, especially weekend events where you get two days with the whole crew.

Thanks Jeff for all your help and running an awesome BBQ for about 55 people. Well the BBQ was a piece of crap, but the steaks that you flipped were excellent. ... have your eyebrows recovered ??? :eyebrows:

The day was not easy, but I am glad you still enjoyed it. Hope you liked the few laps in my car. The organizer on Saturday was a bit funny, we usually have some extra lapping over the luch hour, but he did not want anyone out on that day ??? It was much better on Sunday ... (I organized)

A big THANK YOU! and nice pictures too
