It went well. Rob May (FLMS) drove Joe Koenig's 996, but had to start at the back of the field, so I got in a few laps then waited for him to catch up so we could have a little fun. I was still ahead at the end though!

Sorry to see that STO car get smashed, it was pretty quick on Saturday. I heard it was a lower ball joing that gave out... Was he able to brake at all before going in nose first? I hope so. Also heard the driver was alright, which is slways most important.

Nice work at Grattan - I wanted to go but between being the only car from Fall-Line going and the wacky schedule I decided against it.

See you next week.

Nice Sunday must have been a lot more fun than Saturday in the rain. I was actually on 5 year old rain tires and hoosier is back ordered and not supposed to have any till late June/ early July.

Sounds like it was a good outing on Sunday and that your at a fast pace.

Yea the STO car ball joint (one that attaches the control arm to the hub) broke but as soon as it did he went over the curbing which caused all four wheels into the air. So no way to brake or steer. Pretty scary stuff but at least the cage did its job and he is ok. He found a donor car already and will be getting back out there hopefully late in the year or next season.

Thanks Grattan was a fun time and made a lot more sense to go there than to Brainerd.

Jack,

Yea it was a wet one and we are still on our 6 year old hoosier wets. We have been trying to get a set since Blackhawk but they are back ordered and not starting production on that size till July.

We ended up in 7th but learned on how to improve our times. So hopefully we can apply that next time we are up at Road America. Mark ran a good race and we didn't expect the 370z to be that quick but it made for some fun racing to watch.

Sorry to hear about your car. Obviously you are ok but it seems the laguna seca color is cursed. First our customer, than a friend from Wi in the practice on Thursday, then Friday with you. Crazy that they are all the same color and happened at the same track within weeks. Do you think the car is fixable to make it out still this year?

Still waiting to head the diagnosis from FLMS - my gut tells me it is a pile of scrap metal, but I am the eternal optimist...we shall see.

I will still be running my miata at some events, so I am sure we will run into each other.

Nice at least you can still be out racing the miata. Actually Matt Jensen the other guy in the laguna M3 used to race spec miata too and just switched this year to T2.
