Pretty sure we were fastest and morning warm-up sessions by several seconds but they were not picking up our transponder. First timed session to quality for the knocout round is at 11:45.

Splitter is blocking our hardwired transponder which is buried behind a bunch of ducting and the oil cooler. Impossible to get to quickly so we're going to throw a rechargeable on the back. 115 through the esses, 150 on back straight.. in the wet.

115 at the top of the hill? That's crazy fast in the wet.

100% normal NASA TT rules.

Spin past 70* or more than 2 off is a DQ for that session.

For that session, notes say they wacked 2 future timed sessions which seems a bit extreme.

More transponder problems?

Ryan is ok. Splitter is tore up and pretty much unusable.

So utcc is split up into a and b groups. A group before us had no less than 3 full course yellows and they kept restarting the group. They were on track for 45 minutes. B group just afterwards got one full course yellow and they stopped the session.

The track was fully wet about a half hour before we went out so we mounted the H2O s. They delayed getting our group on track 20 minutes for a spun car. By the time out I got out it was a full dry line. So I dove back into the pit to swap to A7 scrubs. Started pouring on the out lap. Aargh!
So my best time lap was on slicks in the wet. Scared the **** out of myself but I made the cut. If the track gets faster we will go a lot faster. If it does not get any faster than we're good for tomorrow.

Ryan is pretty sulken right now as you might imagine. We are trying to talk him into rigging up some other splitter. We have enough pieces and Hardware here to put something together that will work. We will have to trim the rear wing way out and he will lose some downforce but the top end speed will probably go up.
