We still have a few spots open for this weekends regional event at Mid Ohio. We are running the same configuration as the Runoffs. Friday is practice and there are 3 races over the weekend. Good cheap practice.

 

The upper paddock is not open so most of us are parking up in the grass. Weather looks good.

Frank,
I'm assuming we can access the site Thursday night if we are running the test day on Friday. Can you confirm?

Thanks,
Brian

Does anyone know if there is a Twilight Test-and-Tune after the main test day on Friday? The Mid-Ohio website lists a Twilight on Thursday night, but it seems weird to have it on a Thursday instead of a Friday. Typo maybe?

There is not a twilight session Friday.  There is one Thursday evening and the all day test day Friday but nothing Friday eve.  I had same question and called and got this answer.

Oh indeed the pulled pork and gin/tonics were excellent as well!

And the fact that we solved the contact czar program funding was good stuff.

Congratulations to Jordan, he had a break out weekend winning all three races. ALso nice job by my stable mate Spencer Rutherford for a second place finish yesterday. Matt Reynolds in a 10 yr old 1.6 rental finished second today.

Not a very subtle shift to parity Jim. :) Is there some reason why a well maintained 10 year old 1.6 rental should not be able to run within 0.8+ of fast lap at MidO? Matt seems like the right guy to try.

I REALLY hope someone fast takes a well sorted 1.6 to the Runnoffs this year so we can just get it over with.
