Well I'm glad I decided not to spend $1500+ to go to the show this year.
I just heard that the road course event was a bust for two classes; race class being one of them.
It seems there were so many breakdowns and no one thought to decrease the lap count by said breaking down classes, that the cars actually built to withstand the repeated laps only got one themselves. I can only imagine how I would have felt after driving 1800 miles, waiting all day and then only get 1 hot lap on the road course. [img]graemlins/
Rumor has it the show judges were less than proficient (and that's putting it mildly). It seems there was a pristine 96 (by pristine I mean a 3 owner, garaged every day, completely STOCK (all stickers, labels, emblems, etc. intact and it was cleaned for 2 weeks to within an inch of it's life) in the under 50,000-mile Stock Class that lost to a car with a dirty-looking hood liner (underside hood – insulator) 4 missing OE stickers (hoses – fluid reservoirs) and a damper (alternator - water pump - pulleys - engine block) that looked like it had been painted with a can of Krylon. And this car took 1st place? [img]graemlins/

Well, good luck tomorrow everyone and just think positive thoughts. I mean, it can't get much worse can it? [img]graemlins/
