      Here's our Sunday race video (camera didn't work on Saturday). Audio isn't synced very well, but other than that the video is good.

      T is up first, I'm second, so you don't need to watch all 10 hours to find us. It's busy out there - you can see that all laps were impacted by traffic. Crazy hot - people getting out of the car after two hours were on the verge of heat stroke... or actually in heat stroke. You can see me grabbing the drinking tube on the front and back straights of almost every lap - I completely drained the thing by the end of the session.

      It was a lot of fun. At the beginning while still getting in the groove I had trouble getting around an annoying car that was fast in a straight line and liked to block and/or turn in on you. Got my act together and passed him and then immediately did my fastest lap on #76. Right after that I pass Twoth #552, but then it gets real messy into Corner 1 when a car locks up and he turns back instead of using the escape road. Later on had a wee bit of contact on lap #90 (that same annoying car from the beginning LOL), so I pit for a check over. Damage was luckily minor but I did thankfully score a refill of my cool shirt. Also had a nice brown pants moment on lap #93 when a Porsche decided to chop across my nose in heavy traffic. Other than that lots of great racing.



      One thing about this car, it has power steering delete and and a higher steering ratio to compensate. That makes it necessary to shuffle your hands to turn the wheel far enough. So in the tight corners, which many of them are, our hands are shuffling around. Strange thing is we've gotten used to the car and don't really notice it while driving, even though it looks super awkward.

                    Well shannonville was fun.

                    Ran 3h20minutes Saturday. We finished fourth. Hot. Finished 4th overall. Weird kind of set up with the qualifying now in Lucky Dog racing. We qualified like 15th since slower driver. They arbitrarily assign classes based on lap times then switch as they see fit in the race.

                    Today ran my stint first as Inwas going to run the last hour too in a 9h race.

                    We were running second and car blew a transmission linkage. Got tranny into 4th and he did 6 laps. Then blew an alternator connector. We packed up and came home there was only 1h left and we weren’t in the running anymore.

                    I’m on a cloud with my weekend. I was driving really good for all 5.5hours on the track. Also did a 30min lapping session on Friday!
