I would love to go watch the 25k autocross, but I'm not sure just that is worth the 6hr drive so I'm just going to follow-along online instead.
From what I have seen the last couple of weeks at local events with several of the potential entrants testing, my money would be on Feras' vette to win, but if the right AWD car on Kumho's shows up it could give him a good run for the money.
The car shows and stuff could be fun too though... idk. I'm on the fence after just going to Houston last week

That's why you've got to parlay it with other stuff in Austin, like hitting up Jester King or something. Or maybe even plan a backroads drive down there instead of just sitting on 35 the whole way.

I'm also tempted by the Trans Am race the following weekend which will allow spectators...

I would still bet on Thorne’s S2000. Curious to see who all shows up though! Some of it is course dependent.

Ahhhh you know what, you might be right on that one. I forgot he moved a bit closer recently and would probably make the trip in
