    Yes, the winning Miata team was an awesome story (though the Miatas did seem to have a clear advantage over the other cars). Highly recommend catching one of these races if its within four hours of where you live. It was fantastic to finally meet Bryan and see the #34 car do battle in person!

    Liam is a cool guy. I met him last year at the Kansas race.

    We had to pit twice for fuel, I understand the MX5s didn't (and they have the best lap pace to boot).

    It's also a bit frustrating when other cars have so much more mechanical grip they can drive around you in the slow stuff.

    But we'll keep fighting for whatever we can get. The car was very good at LRP, and we had some fun. Still we should have been at the pointy end of the field given we have two fast drivers who ran a near perfect race (including pit stops).

    In another odd IMSA decision, qualifying was cancelled due to rain. Except we ran the session as scheduled, it was simply "adjsuted" to be a Practice session (we knew this about 5 or 10 minutes before it started). So the starting grid was set based on season points and we lined up 29th. In the wet "practice" session Steve was P5 and I was P4. I pulled in after 3 or 4 laps of wet practice to save the rain tires in case we needed them. We would have loved to qualify and race in the rain!

    BTW Turn 7 at LRP (the final corner) is really really fun when you get it right. You can carry more speed than you think because of the compressions.

    Great to meat another GTXf'er in pl8ster!

    Just so you know, I've started wearing tube socks for my nightly jogs. ALL.THE.WAY.UP.

    And I have observed my kilometer times drop by a couple of tenths.

    Attention upper-Midwesterners, New Englanders, and southern Canadians:
