    Default 2017 Calabogie Libre Challenge

    Well tonight we had our first race night tonight. I had a blast. The weather was awesome. I think there were close to 15 cars out which is great for the first night. We sorted out all the issues with our car, but were not sure if the battery would last the whole race or not. It did and there were no issues. I went out for a few hot laps in qualifying and rang off a 2:17.8 on lap 3. I figured that was good as it matched my personal best. We checked the car and fueled it up. We charged the battery before the race.
    I started 7th on the grid with Fred and Nigel just ahead of me and another pair of Formula Mazdas right behind. Nigel and the one Mazda behind me both ignore the point by rules on the start and jump ahead. WTF. My car feels a little tight in the front, but my first few laps are in the 2:17s. I guess I'm just pushing the car harder. I can't quite catch Steve in one of the Mazdas, but I click off a couple 2:16.xx. Awesome. I start reeling Steve back in. Coming up on a lapped car, he gets held up a little and misses a shift. I get by him and set sail. I pulled away a little bit, but there were only 2 laps left. First time I've finished on the lead lap. Considering the leaders were running 2:04 in $120k+ cars I'm very happy. I downloaded the data, and had a bunch of low 2:16s and a 2:15.8. I'll have to look at the track goals thread to see what my goals were lol.

    It it was good for 1st in the new Legends class, and 6th overall. The only cars ahead of me were Formula Renaults, Radicals and Fred. Pretty happy with the results.

    Track between 12-14 in the shade was not grippy, the sun was making me sneeze and cough inside my helmet too, turkeys are crazy, jeff don't hit cones (this isn't auto-x), Victoria brought pastries to tame my throat kittens, tires were ok but not out of this world, passed a formula Renault on last lap, t came with little t's to crew

    I think I'm going to vote with Richard for split quali next drivers meeting to try it out. I was following Ray and his Renault but we kept getting into traffic.

    too much car for me.

    Sticking to my guns and waiting for a very specific car. This will likely be my "forever" car...so I want the right one.
    This is pretty much it...but the USD is making the price on this one suck
