The weather was great all weekend.

Race Group 6 has nine different car classes with lots of speed differentials.
My class, SSC, runs in this group, and it's a busy group.

There were 7 SSC cars. A Mini qualified on the pole and I was 2nd in my Civic.
Another Mini was 3rd. I got a great start and got ahead of the pole sitter, but in one lap he had his position back. One or two laps later I got ahead of him and I saw that the 3rd place car (the other Mini) got by the pole sitter too.

He stayed on my tail until the end, but, I won.
Anyone see it??

I didn't win. :)

Had a pretty good race also. Started 14th out of 32 or so SRFs, still chasing some handling problems. As of lap 4, coming over the rise between 9 and 10, the leaders were in 10. We had a 15 car train still running at that point. First thought was COOL, second thought was , Uh oh, WAY too close to the front for the fun to start. :)

Exiting 5, one car got loose, Elizabeth Miller spun trying to duck inside to pass, I spun when I got wheels in the dirt trying to pass both of them on the outside. I rejoined in 20th, and Elizabeth and I hooked up to climb back to 13th/14th. Guy who got loose, but didn't spin ended up something like 6th. :(

But good time, nice race, enjoyable day and great weather.

Full writeup will be posted at www.TeamWTF.org later.

Yeah, that's why it felt so good to finish that far back. :)

We could have done better if Elizabeth had seen my signal to hook up and work together. We may have been able to pick up 1 or 2 more spots. :)

Travelling to Nationals for the past 7 years has soured me on away races for now, so I'm staying local. No VIR, but I will be at MARRS 4.
