We were going to go, but 8Legs isn't doing that event :(

Given that it's my dad's B-day, I should probably stick around :(

Well it turns out 8-legs did come down :) we rented the 10 car to Luc Lesage from the rock star/access media team. If anyone is here, feel free to come say hi!

we were in the lower paddock- fun times.

Car ran awesome friday and saturday. Hoping for some podiums. Qualified 2nd.

Saturday's race sasha spun in turn2 and hit the wall, and Luc (in the 8-Legs BMW) spun right after him but kept it on track. turns out there was oil there that the marshals didn't see. Anyways, our 2nd place turned into a 7th, but Luc drove his ass off and managed to bring it back to 4th by the end of the race, after a hugely long full course yellow.

Sunday's race the 3rd place car didn't show (left early?) so we started P3. Audette pulled out on the second lap which put us in 2nd, but sasha had fixed his car and was catching up fast (we were stuck behind sasha's teammate Bob Attrell and we're able to get by). Another full course yellow (sucked for us - it regrouped the pack), and shortly after the green sasha was able to get by putting us back in 3rd. A few laps later and we had a 7+ second lead on 4th place so we were feeling pretty confident. Get a message from Luc on the radio - car just died, no power. We tell him to flip the kill switch and restart. It works, sweet - keep going!

We lost our 3-4gap, and were right behind Scott Nichol. next lap, BAM, pass Scott, back in 3rd, but no chance of catching Bob/Sasha. Oh well, podium in sights, 5min left. SHIT - power loss again, tell him to shut off the power steering and restart - this time we lost another 10seconds and ended up 6th.

It was awesome to see the car run that well, and Luc was having a blast, just bad luck in both races- should have been a double podium for 8-Legs/Rockstar teams!! Ah well.

Bright side is that the media team was following Luc this weekend, so yours truly should be on TV in the near future :)

From FB;


I don't even know what to say. Lap record in qualifying, smash the outside wall in 2 on the 2nd lap of the first race harder than I've ever hit anything before - then drive the car into the pits with the hood smashed into the wind-shield - finish the race, go back to the shop and basically re-fab half the front end THEN go on to start from last and finish 1st in today's race. And set a new race lap record for good measure.

Finally - in the post race interview I honoured my dare. My quote was:

"Well Dick, I'm the best there is. Plain and simple. When I wake up in the morning, I piss excellence. That's all I can say."

Heading down there again this year, camping out all 4 days. Last year before we see them merge into "United Sportscar Racing".

Anyone else going?
I usually run into Guy from MCO every year.

Btw, did Sasha find a ride yet?

Yeah, still not a fan although the interior seems nicer and I like the quad tips. But the taillights are crrraaaaaap.
