:sigh: - was registered for that and was going to send a check Monday (along with the NCC October school).

...but it looks like i just lost my motor at ViR full.

"PoP" goes the 3.2L...

Not sure. Last session of the day, rolling into the throttle at Oak tree in 3rd and literally heard what sounded like a muffled tire blowout right about as i clipped the inside curbing. I'm wondering if I over revved - but I can't see how I could have been anywhere fast enough to overrev 3rd at Oak - and still make it.

Car had an intermittent low RPM stutter earlier so I don't know if that was related.

I kind of stupidly limped it 14 miles back to the hotel like that since i didn't know what to do, but Friday after about 20 phone calls, I got a u-haul vehicle trailer and truck somewhere in Roxboro NC, got Allstate to tow it there from the hotel, and I'm pulling it home now - still.

I've learned a few things for when things go "boom" far from home though...of course I'm out of the track day business now :(.

OK, I received my acceptance email last night, so anyone else from the NCC going to be a student or an instructor?

Great to see some NCC faces there.
The high points for me were trying out a Aston Martin Vanquish for a couple of sessions and getting my car rather sideways in the karosel and catching it before a catastrophe.

Looking forward to seeing you guys in October.

I watched a relative run in the SCCA races Sunday - totally forgot NJ was running next door.

It sounded like his race was a little bumpy at first, but he finished ahead of where he qualified.

Too bad we did not cross paths. Robin, Sammy, and Robby were up from about 11:30 to 1:30 checking out all the "racecars!"

Whoa, you are a CATASTROPHE! Heh heh! Guard's Red causes that I understand.

We did have a good representation for the NJ School. I did talk to Woody's "relative" who stopped by after his race.

Great weekend overall.
