Good Luck with the car, Mark.
Great to see another GT car in the field, especially GT3, not to mention a car like this.

After a week of anticipation I finally got to see the car on Friday morning. It was better than I expected. Our plan was to use the weekend at Watkins Glen (my first time at the track) to shake down the car. After several years of little/no use there were some problems we had to sort out on Friday and Saturday. By Sunday we got the car running pretty well for the enduro. I was able to get down to 2.00.1 and there was still another second or two left in the car. We will do some testing next month and then be at Road America for the PCA event.

The car is incredible to drive and lots of fun. Watkins Glen is a great track and we really enjoyed the weekend (well except for all the yellow/red flags in our run group).

I never got around to replacing the shocks. See if Jeff will make a you good deal on a set of Moton triples. Maybe up the rear springs to 1100's.

Kelly Moss have been hard at work refreshing and preparing the car. We were at Road America for a test day last week. Unfortunately the day didn't get off to a great start after the left rear upright failed. Thanks to the the guys at Kelly Moss we were able to get another one from the shop, have it installed and get back on track by mid afternoon. Then we started having fuel pick up/starvation issues. As expected with an old car the hasn't been run much in the last few years there are issues that we'll need to work thru. But by the PCA event at Road America later this month we'll be ready...

There are some new additions to the car which look and perform great. There will be more by the end of the month. And then over the winter we will get the BIG items on the project list done.

Since the test day a few weeks ago there has been further development - carbon brakes, aero, etc. So I was really looking forward to the PCA race weekend at Road America. Unfortunately we spent Friday thru Sunday chasing an electrical/ECU problem which was finally diagnosed and fixed. The enduro warm up and qualifying went well, 12th with a time of 2.21. For the first 30 mins the race went well, working my way up the order with a best time of 2.20.1 (which is a 3R class record?) before the left rear upright failed again. Same problem we had at the test day which is likely being caused by the toe link binding and snapping off the lower shock mount ears.

I have some good in car video from the enduro which I'll post once I figure out how to do it.

Development will continue in the coming weeks/months on the BIG projects (more aero updates, motor, ABS, fuel cell, etc). Maybe I'll get to Sears Point at the end of October, if not it won't be until next year I get back in the car.
