First Id like to thank Edmond, Jim, Larry (their wives) and anyone else who helped with the event. It was a blast as usual and I hope you guys do it again next year.

OK here are some videos from earlier today. The videos look quite a bit slower than it actually feels in real life, I think its because I'm using a wide angle camera.

Here are some of my fastest laps, the fastest being 1:49.821. It may be a bit boring as its from the last session and its pretty much just open track. I think with a bit more practice at MSR I should be able to pull a high 1:47.

Here is me and Joe Johnson having a bit of fun chasing each other down. Its fun watching him pull me on the straights and then me reeling him back in the corners. Probably one of the more fun sessions of the day.

Here is a short video of my buddy in the black Exige putting 2 weeks off coming out of Diamonds Edge. This one is quite exciting.

My my..I had a blast at the event. It was sure fun running with the Exige's and Z06 Corvettes. That is what open track is all about. The people you meet and the fun you have on the track, especially if you can run with someone nose to tail and change postions from time to time.

I had a few problems with the Cobra R. Had a fuel leak and leaks on the diff. I took the car to Kenny Bumbera today and found that the wrong differential pinion seal was installed on the drive shaft and the vent hose on the fuel cell was crushed which did not allow the pressure buildup to vent. I have only ran the car a few times since it was repaired after the fire and rebuild. Hopefully, I will get all the bugs fixed before long.

Thanks again for a great event. Looking forward to the next one.
