It's that time of year again! Mid-September in Eastern Wisconsin means the SCCA Runoffs are happening.
I'm running two cars this year (not Miata content coming...), a 2006 Honda Civic Si in STL (Super Touring Lite) which is pretty comparable to a NASA PTD car and a 2007 Honda S2000 CR in the T3 class (Touring 3) which I think runs as a PTC car in NASA.
Unlike NASA, we have huge fields at the Runoffs. I'm qualified 5th out of 40+ cars in STL. The cars qualified ahead of me are all either former SCCA National Champs or Grand-AM series Champs.
In T3, the S2000 is a bit of an underdog, and I'm qualified 8th out of 22 cars. We've only had about 3 laps of qualifying in the T3 class all week because of heavy rains. Unfortunately my one fast lap I got held up by a Nissan 370Z in Canada Corner where there was a standing yellow. I would have been qualified 3rd if that wouldn't have happened, but OH WELL.
I don't think either of the cars I'm driving have enough to compete for an overall win but I'll be fighting my dearest to make it onto a podium.
The races will be broadcast live at SpeedcastTV
. The T3 race is tomorrow (Sunday, Sept. 22) at 8:45AM CST, and the STL race is at 10:45AM CST.
Also, never sign up to drive two cars at a championship event, it's a terrible idea.
I'll try to add some photos and videos to this thread when I get some time.
