    This is a very well prepped car with a very good driver. Tim's 924 broke a hub in the race and was out. This was shaping up to have be a very good battle.

    Tim's bad luck

    Really too bad Tim had to drop out of Saturday's race, your are right we were having a good battle and it would have been really interesting if we had both come up on Drew's M3 at the same time.
    Sunday he was leading until the red flag was thrown, he was leading with Jason driving my car in hot pursuit. When the track wet yellow, Tim could not get his car started (forgot to turn the kill-switch back on) and lost his P1 position to Jason. Tim came in 3rd in class behind Drew.
    All together, we had some really good racing.
    We are looking forward to another battle with Tim's very quick 924-S

    It's very easy to post them here as well. Just copy the URL of the video and paste into a post. There is magic behinds the scenes that will display them in the post. No fancy coding required.

    Nice race Steve, Jason. Still haven't been able to watch the video, been at work for 7 days in a row and none of the computers allow flash stuff. Will you guys be going to Nasa Nationals at Miller in Sept. I'll be running the USTCC and GTS3 classes. Have you ever thought about the USTCC. Rules are similar to GTS, HP/WT.

    NASA Nationals

    Thanks Vince,
    What is required to go to the Nationals? Must you win several regionals to qualify or do you get invited? WE would love to go, just depends on work schedule and logistics...
    USTCC would mean having to remove or change too many things on my car, don't think that would be practical. For now, DM in CCA allows anything and GTS just requires adding weight which is pretty easy to do.
    Hope we meet at a track some day.
    Regards,
    Steve

    Steve, NASA requires 5 races to qualify for nationals. That can be a combination of TT and W2W races with at least 3 W2W. USTCC is pretty simple with a HP/WT ratio similar to GTS. what would you need to change?
