The results on mylaps look very interesting. I am looking forward to some stories and videos.

Did you all run the regular track or something new? Did some of the changes for '09 bring some closer racing?

Congratulations Dan and Dean !!!!! Way to go.
It was a wild weather weekend. We were lucky on Saturday with a pretty dry track. Good clean racing all around. I give NASA high marks for putting on a great event in spite of unbelievable conditions.

As Mike said, weather was a factor all weekend. Saturday had a very wet practice, mostly dry (with puddles) qual and fully dry race. Sunday had monsoon practice, very wet qual and just wet race.

Folks were on a mixed bag of tires - some running shaved R888's, some running full tread R888's and some running shaved or full-tread RA-1's.

I think it's hard to say with this mix of cars, drivers, weather and tires whether the 09 rule changes have really made a difference.

Great event - no car-to-car contact of any consequence. Very lite body damage for Vodden with an off at T10 in the rain. Very clean weekend, especially considering the conditions!

Congrats to Dan for a hard-fought win on Saturday - he's back!!!

I'll post my qual and race videos in another thread. Looking forward to seeing everyone's there!

Cheers,

Dean

Thank you Gents. nice to see you all. Jeremy, I was on shaved RA-1 for the race as was Vodden. I want to use them up. But, it was definitely the tire to have. I qual'd on shaved r-888 at a hair over 2 min flat and ran the race at 157.5+. Big difference.. too bad we have to change. I weenie'd out of the second race as I was not fast in rain practice. sorry I forgot to put in my camera.

RA-1's are allowed as dry tires for one more NASA race weekend. They are allowed as rain tires (race director has to designate it a "wet race") for the entire 2009 season.

Dan and Dean congrats on the wins.

Dan, I take in you are sticking with SM and not SSM?

Jeremy, I tried to take video on Sat and Sun...but my GOPRO will not record anything longer then 11 min. even with ni-mh, li-ion and a ton of Costcos....So it is not a battery isue or memory issue.....Do you have a contact at Gopro?

Thanx Dan

Congrats on the win Doc, wish I could have been there to see it. Regarding the second race, I figure if you're going to wuss out of a rain race, Infineon's probably the place to do it. [Eek!]

One thing that I thought was really cool was they waved the white flag with one lap to go just like races you see on TV. Much better than just getting the finger.
I did have a bit of confusion about my starting spot as to which side to be on as there wasn't a splitter. I figured it out at the last minute so no biggie.

Thanks Jeremy and Pat. yes I WUSSED. Just didn't seem important after a win, (THEY DON'T COME ALONG TO OFTEN) to risk the car. I was slow as molasses anyway.
