if we are running the banks, just show up and bring some no-doz. Maybe get cruise control reinstalled. With the exception of T-1 flat out at 120mph, no real skills, just HP & drafting. [Sleep]

If we are running the infield, Great technical track "GET UP ON THE WHEEL", and bring an extra suit, chances are T-10 flat out for the first time, you'll need to change suits. [boggled]

Maybe we can get Florida region to run both configurations, 1 each day. That would bring alot more entrants I think. [thumbsup]

Yo,Senor Chains.
It was nice to talk with you in the Grid/ Pits at PBIR this past weekend. I hope you enjoyed the racing. I was very pleased that the ECR Enduro was "Green Flag" for the whole 1 1/2 hrs. ....no full course cautions at all. The group did a good job, The Double ECR at Homestead will be run using the infield course one day and the banking for NASCAR 3 & 4 the second day. This should be indicated in the Supps; but you and Jeffy already admitted to me, that sometimes they get lost and therefore remain unread. Hope to see you and the gang from the Florida left coast at HST for this event and that we will have more Green Flag racing for the whole 1 1/2hr. of the ECR Enduros Capt. John

Mark,

You should do it! I ran down there for the first time with Chin in Feb. We used both configurations. I liked them both. Cliff if right about the pucker factor in Turn 10, you might get a little Nomex stuck between your cheeks.

John, our whole group had a blast this last weekend, You guys did a hell of a great job, I wish more drivers would come out to PBIR, it really is a challenging track. The dragstrip next door with the 1000+ hp motors reminds me of Drago and Chip warming up on grid.... [Big Grin] [rolling on floor laughin]

Now that we are running both config's we need to push to get as many people signed up as possible, Jeffy and I need a Supps page with Just pictures? [thumbsup]

If all goes well, I'll be there!

Thanks to Capt John for sending me some pointers!

Can anyone point me to some in-car video from there? I couldn't find much in the way of in-car spec miata race vid from there on youtube...

Homestead was a fun trip! Enjoyed the track and the friendly cast of characters. Good to see all the youngsters in the driver's school. My wife asked if some of them were really old enough to drive. [Smile] The Sunday morning boating trip was especially fun. [yep]

The event was fun, I wish we would run the infield more often though!
