Saturday looks good, Sunday says 50/50, but more at night vs. day, at least I hope so. I guess I'll find out how good wet traction is on pss tires!

Running in the wet is a good learning opportunity for car control because everything happens at slower speeds. But it's a real PITA when all of your stuff (jack, tools, chair, floormats, tire totes, etc.) gets wet sitting in the paddock. Happened to me last fall at Watkins Glen during a two-day event. I ended up bringing my soaked track tires in the tire totes (also soaked) up to my hotel room using the hotel's luggage cart so they wouldn't be screwing up my car's interior overnight. You should have seen the looks on the hotel staff's faces!

great to invest in a $20 tarp...just in case the weather changes, I usually lay all gear on top of tarp then if it starts raining I throw everything under...Last year @ Mont Tremblant when we suddenly got hit with a monsoon we were able to cover 5 people gear with one tarp...luckily for us we were all about packed up

Hey, I was going to follow you around the track..... you have some good times there and I have only run that track 1 day. I thought I was doing good there last year and then I saw myself in a video there from another car and boy did I look lost on the track
