Ok race update. Raced at Charlotte motor speedway this past weekend. The ITA car for the enduro at night under the lights. The STL car we ran in two sprint races. And the first time in a Scca majors race. Well new radiator in the ITA car. First rule, check the direction of the fans. I didn't. It ran in the shop so all good, nope. First rule have someone smarter than me double check. Anyway overheat and no qualifier. Start dead last. All good, we tear thru the field and 10 laps in doing great. Until a fitting on the rad blows off. Get to pits lose 23 mins but we go back out and finish and have a great time. The sprint races are a blast, sat we run really well and win. Raced hard and was able to learn more about the track. Sun we were entered in the majors race. Much more at stake for all there, as this is the qualifier for the runoffs. I have never run with these guys. 40 min 2 in the afternoon at 94 degrees with a ton of humidity. Qualified 10th overall, 3rd in class. These guys are on a different level of serious. Every lap was like the last lap running for the checkered flag. No give all take. I will try to post the video as it was one of my best runs and most fun in years. We chased, we passed, got passed, ran three wide into turn 3 NASCAR. Oh the motor 6300rpm in 5th down the back straight, thru 3/4 to the turn in. Never missed a beat, 200 degrees not a bit hot, perfect a/f. Just did what tom expects beats Miatas and the other fast Mazda. An Rx-8. Yeah we showed the rear bumper of the focus zx-3 to an all out build rx8. Yeah it didn't suck. We won our first majors race, finish 5th over all and shocked everyone including our whole team. I drove way above my normal, ran 10 tenths for 19 laps and just haven't stopped smiling. Both drove on the trailer so what could be better. Nothing. Thanks tom, thanks Patrick, Mike, Rick and Amy a great team .
