This coming weekend (actually Friday and Saturday) I am racing a fabled Lime Rock raceway in beautiful northwest Connecticut.

This is the first time I have ever visited this track, so I am a bit apprehensive about the whole affair, but I plan on doing well regardless.

For those of you nearby, this is a "spectator" event, so it is open to the public. I think the admission is $15.00, so c'mon out and watch some good racing. The T1 race is Group 5, which should put us right after lunch. So far we have seven entries, 6 Corvettes and 1 Lotis Elise.

Hey guys, just got back from a long (8 1/2 hour) drive from CT. A bit tired, to say the least.

I finished 3rd out of 8 cars. Not by being fast, but by having some luck.

After watching just two laps of in-car video I am cringing at how much time I am wasting at that track.

A quick recap:

Friday AM Session #1 (1st time on track) I run a 1:01.997. Pole is a 59.4XX by Bill Ziegler (this is his home track).
Friday PM Session #2 (2nd time on track) I get to a 1:00.975, 5th in class but 6th overall (behind a very fast T2 Camaro). I picked up some speed and everyone else went slower.
Saturday race: I went a best of a 1:00.327, Bill Z won with a 59.8, second place was Pete Kulka (very good driver) with a 1:00.027 (?).

I want to go back soon so I can make up for the mistakes I made this weekend...

More to follow later this weekend.
