Well the racing is done for another year...still great weather but big storms are supposed to pop up and head this way so everyone is busy packing up. When farmers are putting stuff in their sheds, you probably should be packing up, too. Awards dinner is in a few hours. Likely no trophy, but we didn't embarass ourselves. In the loup2loup, global warming made for a record low high temp for august and our tire factor was off the charts. We have taken for granted it will be 85 degrees and sunny and not 58 degrees at 1 in the afternoon. A C6 Z06 made it 1.5 miles in the 95 mph class before ending up on its roof. That made my son a little nervous since we were in the 100 mph class. A cold tire is also a small tire and our rally computer was off nearly .2 miles in 12 miles, which was too far off to correct for before finishing, since the race is only 7 minutes for each leg. We were 8 seconds slow going north. No problem. I reset everything for 8 seconds faster going south. About a mile out of the leg 2 start it started pouring rain and we were flying over the hills at 130. My son asks me to turn on the wipers because he couldn"t see. I told him we"ll drive out of it and it will blow off... just then, it did. Coming into the finish, the rookie navigatot misread a card or something because said finish -2 seconds, but we were again 8 seconds fast (16 seconds faster than northbound leg 1) Better fast than slow. Probably way out of the trophies but we had a great first race and nothing broke.
