Thanks Brian. I assumed that would be the case.

Well I just signed up....

Road America is awesome. I ran it in One Lap of America in 1994 in the White car. Scared the crap out of me. When I made the 4 -5 shift at 130 MPH I knew I was moving.

Since then I learned a few things and logged a few track miles. My new car should be fast there. All I have to do now is pry it out of Joe and Paul VanNus’s hands and put it together. It is all painted and we are putting the chassis under it this weekend. It should be back at my shop by Feb. 14 (My girlfriend is trilled )

The engine should be done Feb 14 also. So I should be very busy the next couple months. But this car was built for Road America not autocrossing at Walmart. Lol

We should crush 150 MPH on the front and back straight.

If all goes right we will be there. Now what tires to use?

This is going to be a way cool event - we will be utilizing the 200 TW rule at the track and we will be doing a couple things to slow the cars down a little on the track for safety. We're not requiring roll cages and harnesses, so we feel this is absolutely necessary for safety.

This event just came together a little over a week ago - we should have all the forms, rules and registration docs, along with the website, up and going shortly.

Thanks for your patience!!

Tell me you are not running the motorcycle part before the kink... Although at any track day that seems to be the place almost everybody who gets in trouble does it.

I was thinking the same as Matt. I have no delusions of winning, no matter how many laps I have in there. I may want to run exhibition only on my RA1's if possible.

I hear ya brother, we could have our own little drivers race. Lets see if Midwest Council has taught us anything.

I just realized that the Cannonball One Lap of America and this event are booked for Road America on May 1. How is that going to work?

I still haven't seen a place to enter yet?

How much longer is it going to be?

I am just going to be there to have fun and see everyone. Getting pictures of the Cormaro on the track will be awesome along with just getting to go as fast as I want to go without a ticket.

Still waiting !!!
