Ed, you'll have your best chance at the Glen. The high speed corners tend to negate the GT3 hp advantage, and if you can come off of them a little faster, you should be able to hold your own on the straights. Last year at Daytona the GT3s were 4 seconds faster than me. At the Glen they were only .4; the type of track does make a difference.

If any club racers want to get some seat time in before the race weekend, the Niagara Region PCA is having a DE that Monday/Tuesday, May 28/29. We still have room for drivers in the advanced run group. www.niagarapca.com for all the details, or you can PM me.

I just got back from three days at The Glen and I can't wait for the race. I'm bringing my family and both my cars. First time for me I'll be running the GT3RS in the sprint race and my turbo car in the enduro. Yahoo...

Oh, just great, I have to run against a 997 GT3RS and a turbo. Do you know how fast I have to pedal to get an X51 to keep up with a GT3RS?

By the way, who took my # 74? Now I'm stuck with 747. Is that bad luck? A 747 is big and fat and heavy, but I guess it does go 600+ mph!
What lap time do you have to make to get pole for B?
