Anyone (other than me) going? Gonna get a t-shirt this time!

I'll be heading up earlier in the AM to watch the big boys go round and round... hopefully get a couple of rides while I'm there!

Why do I always start the MCO threads ? :P

Somebody move this to Events please? Some moron put the thread in Lapping/Racing instead of the right sub-forum. soniceofyouthanks!

Good day for me in the end...I'll toss up some video when I've gone thru it! Not as good for others... Too many stoppages, resulting in an impromptu drivers meeting at 2:45. Definitely not one of the smoothest MCO events ever -- but definitely not their fault. I think the short track bit back today.

Apologies to you red guys who I messed up in the first session at noon (if it was any of you)... I had my head firmly up my ass as a result of being surprised with a spot in the red group, and was not at my best.

Not sure what you did dude, but it was minor compared to the rest of the crap shoot that happened today.

Yeah, it was a strange day. Certainly not the fault of the organizers in any way, but a lot of "stuff" happened.

I felt like I was just in the way -- was only on one or two laps, and really only messed with a couple of drivers, but I felt bad about it. A good lesson about composure learned though! No problem being passed/driving with faster cars later in the day..

It sure was a weird day from an organizational perspective. From the caterer not showing up with the BBQ for lunch (I was sure we had talked to them about that -- though they did say they were short-staffed), to unusual on-track behaviour -- to a big shunt. Not as relaxing as some I've helped run. Thanks to all who participated, and as always I am happy to here feedback about improvements, or things you would like to see.

Just food and water!

All the stuff that happened on track wasn't in any way the fault of the organizers. Shit happens.

Plus eleventy-billion. Though the dinner after was pretty good. Not sure what meat the "hamburgers" were -- maybe what was left over after they made hot dogs? But the chicken stir fry worked . . .

food n water. :)

I assumed there was going to be a lunch to buy, doh. Then dinner was confusing, went racing instead. Not eating all day made the car faster.

You're just lucky I'm such a nice guy. They waived me into the line I saw you coming and told them you were there in front. Otherwise you would have been in the back!

/\ Awesome wikkid! Thanks for that. I've got the tuner lined up in a couple of weeks to get the car figured out.

How many peeps were in GT1? I was at the back, except dude in the black limo took a while to figure out that I should have been in front of him. He was on the left, behind IanO. On the warm up lap, I was trying to get some heat in my tires by swerving back/forth, but he kept jumping up along side of me. I guess he thought he was supposed to be behind the car gridded directly in front of him. He figured it by the time we lined up for the start/finish line, and backed off going in to kink.

I think Matt got bumped into gt1, so 8 cars ? only guessing, didn't grab the race results.

I think they needed some actual chicken to go with the rice and liters of sauce they poured on tho... eventually I think they just started giving out the burgers as toppings for the stirfry, so the mens wouldn't revolt as a result of a lack of protein.

I do realize this sounds a little ungrateful, so sincerely thank you for dinner -- it was good.
