The weekend was great.  A tiny bit of drizzle at the end of the day on Saturday then hot and muggy all day sunday.  The courses were fast and fun.  Saturday I topped out around 77 and sunday around 70.  Several VMSC and TSCC folks were on hand. 

Congrats to everyone who took home medals.  Off the top of my head I only know of 2 golds since I wasn't paying much attention. 

Good Driving netted Marc 'Supernova' Portanova super fast times and the gold in SS.
Consistency got Donna Gold in Ladies.

That's two events in a row where we pinged the rev limiter in second.  Nice.

Sorry you couldn't make it John.  Hope things have chilled at the house by now.  Good thing you didn't come to drive the car on Sunday, the front tires are gone.  Not the worst I have ever driven on (in verona last year, I found huge patches of rubber gone from the face of the tires when I took them off.  And street tires were a second faster than those tires.)

Great job, Ray. We had a really good time and enjoyed the courses. They are among the best I have driven.

The FTD competition on Sunday was as close as I can recall with three cars within .028 sec. Congrats to Dave for getting FTD by .006. He moved to to Ohio to start his job with Honda the next day. It was quite a sendoff!

Kudos to BRR for a great event. Some of the most fun courses I have run and very well organized.
