I'm driving up Saturday morning with a few other SWFL guys. Just making a day trip of it. Hope to see a few of you guys there.

Sixshooter, do you know what time you're running on Saturday? We're leaving early in the morning, I'm guessing we'll be at the track around 8:30 or 9:00.

First driving session for me is 10:15. I'll be in HPDE3, see schedule at attached link.
I'll also be watching out for my buddy who is running in HPDE1 and driving the maroon colored '91 Skyline GTR. He drove a low powered car at Road Atlanta but hasn't driven Sebring yet and hasn't driven this car on the track yet so he'll have his hands full. Should be fun to watch.

You ever throw a party and nobody shows up?



Bitches.


lol.



It is cloudy but the rain hasn't been here yet. It is much cooler than it would be if there was bright sun and no breeze. It's been pretty good.

Car no hit wall.

Sunday was wet for the first session and steady rain, pretty strong at times, for the second session. My third session was cancelled because of heavy rain, wind, lightning, tornado...did I mention the tornado?

Here is video of the awesome rain session from Sunday. I broke it into two parts so you could see everything from the start. There were only six of us actually crazy enough to run in this session and I was a little late getting to the grid so the others were already out there. It was very slick in spots, grippy in others, and deep in several. The track doesn't drain like a crowned roadway does by design. You need fast hands to catch it when it tries to spin.

I was all ready to go, but there was this tropical storm thing sitting on my house at the time. I was up at 5am that morning, but the weather radar showed enough red between me and the track that I decided that going back to bed was a better option.
