Event One Debriefing
« on: May 02, 2010, 05:19:10 pm »
Just back from Event One.    What a great gift we had weather size today!.. Any body who stayed away missed 8 runs and done by 2:15.  To Dale, Dave and Jon (and others) who designed and built the the course - I liked it.  It required more focus than some courses at ECC have in the past.  I know you guys designed for rain but I liked the mix even in the dry.  I missed the fact that after the first heat with marbles and dampness that I needed to radically raise my rear tire pressure to reduce understeer.  I will tatoo that on my forehead for future reference.  Congrats to Carrie for her first ever top ten PAX!!!!!!!!!
Now I need to nurse my sunburn since I actually removed my bottle of sunscreen from the car before leaving the house this AM.  DOH!

You couldn't ask for better weather.  I can't understand why anyone would have skipped today.

PS - results are posted.

was a great day. also figured out why the car "oversteered" horribly so much, and the cause of all that rear tire smoke. see y'all in 3 weeks.

I thought it went great too -- also got some sun burn. Never even thought about it, but I did have three, yes three, rain suits with me....

Well we also had the power of return of the Camaro Hoosier Wets to help keep the rain away too :)

I bought the wets a few years ago, and never had to use them..... I sent them to Cletus so we would have them for national events, and it started raining at locals all the time.  Now that they are back we should be ok
