Amy, thanks for the most awesome cookies.

What's funny is your passenger side rear wheel was really, really wobbly. The suspension must be able to soak up the vibration that it should have been causing. Either way, your tire wear will be a bazillion times better.

Been there, done that! Thanks for the spin.

Despite the rain issues, radios fouling, etc... 9 runs on a rewarding course, if you really commit was pretty damned fun!

yeah that course was pretty sweet once you really started pushing it! if only it dried up...

award for best/earliest spin of the day goes to ML, who i saw go WAY sideways by the 3rd cone! bdh8281 deserves a special mention for his "excessive donut maneuvers"

and who could forget those cookies?? big thanks to amy for the visit/sugar rush

looking forward to seeing ALL the usual suspects next sunday!

Mike, I was the lucky passenger for the spin. I actually urged ML to take a different line at the start to be able to hit the slalom in better shape than most were taking. It helped me a lot, shaving time.

Anyone know if and when the times will be posted? I forgot what I ran, but am interested to see how it stacked up.

NESHOC emails them out. The problem is the messy state of the timing results due to how the file was loaded. I have to manually collate all times from 842 total lines of time, across three results files. Nothing matched back to the participant. I already have 3 good hours into it, and see prob another 5-6 hrs to be able to get them good enough to send to Ed Stebbins. From there, he mails them out.

Joy, joy.

Sorry to hear that Larry. You would think there would be an easier way... I guess the BMW events are less of headache (I hope).

That line may have saved you time but it cost me 12 seconds on that run. It did work better on later runs, once I got out of the gas pedal a little.

I think you probably win consistency-wise. I think my best morning time was 83.x or 84.x. I definitely had something in the afternoon that was 81.x, but I can't remember if I coned on that one or not.

Let's hope for some good weather this weekend!

I am not going to be able to make this one. Abstinence is a difficult choice, but I guess you all don't have the high moral standard as myself... whoring yourself out to any old club.

#1 Whore. Present and accounted for.

I hate to say it, but this may be THE last autox event ever for that club.

That's unfortunate. The new tauras SHO must be a year too late.
