For this coming weekend, the way the numbers worked, the SM group will run in the Lightning Group all by themselves.

I hope you guys don't get too lonely!

Still time to register:
Sebring Race Registration

We're looking forward to a Great Weekend!

How many Miatas do you have? I need to do some testing and thought about going.

Not quite sure what you mean by that, but we have a good group for just getting this thing rolling in January, but then again it doesn't matter how many cars are at a test day does it? You might get bored at our races Jamie, we don't draw the big dogs in like SCCA Sebring events do. We race hard, but we're definitely not setting Jamie Tucker like lap times at Sebring!

Small groups (10-20 cars) are more desirable to our guys, everybody has a great time hanging out with each other in the paddock (all SM racers pit together), picking up Toyo bucks (top 5 get paid), having beers and being acknowledged for their triumphs at the awards party, better chances at podium finishes, honest competitors and cars, and most importantly going home with a clean, undamaged car is what we aim for. It's definitely an alternative (relief to some) to the SCCA racing in Florida, and offers a uniquely different experience for our competitors. Essentially the car count doesn't really matter much to our guys, they are not trying to prove anything, just looking for a fun weekend of driving and choosing their on track battles. If we all wanted massive car counts we'd be racing SCCA more often.

So come on out and test at our race, I assure you that you will have a good time! If you do, be aware that the NASA rules designate you have a head and neck restraint of some sort, and your car either has a center net or head restraint seat where the SCCA rules do not.

What I meant was if it were only 3 of us it is not a lot of fun but it is still track time so if I can get there I would like to. I did see that you have 10 cars and our own run group which is great. I run a halo seat and a hans so that should not be an issue. I also have a nasa logbook if I can find it! I going to see if I can get a couple more people to come with me.
Thanks,
Jamie

Cool, can't tell if someone is joking online without the use of those [Wink] faces! I'm pretty passionate about our series!

I believe the count is about 12-13 now, usually a guy or two does not make it to the race, but at least 10. Come on out and bring your friends, try us out and you might be back for more later! We have a lot of fun and it is a very laid back atmosphere. The $200 early registration price has expired, but I think it is only $83 more now. Link is above I believe.

I can get you sorted with the logbook and tech inspection if need be, let me know.

Hey Jamie - Wow, I hope you can make it, I've been hoping to see you at one of our events ever since I asked you the first time, 2 or 3 years ago!

We have 12 people already registered: Byerly, Ferro, Allen, R. Adamczyk, Denis, Gebhardt, J. Adamczyk, Blaisdell, Atkiknson, Neely, Pazdur, and Thomas.

Bruce Byerly is looking for help getting his 2nd car (the Miata) to the track, and might not make it. Also Denis might have a problem.

Counting you, we have about 5 others who said they MIGHT come instead of going to W. Palm Beach the next weekend.

Registration is still open, save the $50 late fee that goes into effect late afternoon on Thursday and register now at:

And we just got registrations from Chris Burson and Denise Stubbs. One will be running in SM on Sat., the other will be running on Sun.

Share those cars!

Oh, their other cars are (2) Porsche 944's and a monstrously beautiful Porsche 911 RSR.

This is going to be great in SM! Jamie, from what I hear, I think your times are going to be hard to beat, but I will bet you will love the competition which will be right on your tail, just waiting for ONE mistake! So don't stay up too late partying on Friday and Saturday nights!
