George and I hooked up with Elon.
My Porsche won't be ready on time for September, maybe December though.

Their cars are usually prepped well. Even if Kevin is a total tool. Should be fun!

See you guys tomorrow. What Pit are you in? We are in 45, 46
Jetsetsurfshop
Looks like from the pit assignments that were on opposite ends. confused24.gif
Were number 14.
Two other members are racing that I know of.
Seabird (Miguel) is with the Mad Motorsports crew. Pit #23
ablesnead (Lorin) is with Team Casual, I think. They usually run a Miata, but the list shows a RX-7? He's in Pit#44
STAY HYDRATED!

914 Dinner Fri Night?
tooms350
Sure thing, I'll be in town.
ThePaintedMan
Cool, Joe! I didn't know you were going. Looking forward to seeing TC and Miguel as well. Shane and I are excited to drive a car we don't have to work on.

Last time I drove a beemer it was fun. Randy Pobst drove the car last year and was consistently in the 2:40 range, with a couple laps in the 2:39. Wonder how close any of us will get.

Dinner sounds great! piratenanner.gif

Hey George, it was kinda last minute. SLS needed a third driver and the price is right so I'm in! Anyone been to the cattleman club lately?
Jetsetsurfshop
I'm in for dinner too. chowtime.gif
ThePaintedMan
Though Elon does throw down quite the feast on Friday night...
Jetsetsurfshop
I wonder if he does a drivers meeting then??
ThePaintedMan
What a bummer of a weekend. Our car only did 2 laps and finished in dead last after a radiator hose popped off, toasting the head. However, it was fun watching TC and Joe, both of whose cars did really well. As they say, 'That's racin.'

What kind of lap times was that Z running? I know it has to be faster than when I saw it on track.

I think my fastest lap was 2:38
tooms350
That's what I thought, someone must have been having a bad couple laps when I saw it out there. I was running 2.48, 2.50s in a miata 1
8.

The other thing was we were having Tire problems on the car so I know the guy before me was having issues. When I got in they put new tire in front, which upset the balance making the rear very loose. One Lap I would be very good, the next with a couple of marbles or a drop of fluid off a car in front and the car would be all over the place.

We were told that the Tranny was the weak link, so in my case I was short shifting a bunch to make sure the car made it thru my stint. The guy after me had the same tire issues and he complained that the brakes were soft.

this what you get with an Open Top Car during LoveBug season
