So, do you think that I can use Toyo RA-1s at full tread for this week at Mid-Ohio?

Thunder Valley after the rans in Ohio this past week.

I don't see anything on the Buckeye website about the event being canceled. Have you heard anything?

Woody, don't know anything about the school this weekend, I'm not enrolled, just being funny. I hope it has drained off by now, but the area around Mansfield, Shelby and Findlay have all been hit really hard.

The Buckeye Chapter event at Mid-Ohio August 25-26 was held as scheduled. Sue and Dave Bryan, and Glen Speakman, instructed/worked the event. And I drove it for the first time in the M5 on a new set of Toyo R888s. Needless to say, the brakes and tires got a good workout, but it's a fun, challenging track. The event was dry except for a heavy thunderstorm during the last session late on Saturday. And despite the impressive scene of flooded Thunder Valley from a week earlier, amphibious vehicles (or even street tires) weren't required. :wink:
