Don't ever be this guy (as much as I fear judging others)

AER even issued a statement responding to him: http://americanenduranceracing.com/d...t-repsonse.pdf

Nice job El Jefe. I need to get approval and then sign up for SCDA in May at Thompson and Watkins Glen in July. Will also be doing the Time Trials at Thompson following July 4th

I think I will let you down at both the time trials in July and at the nationals in September. In September, I'm pretty sure that my niece is getting married and it is also a VSCCA date. In July, I'm under orders to be in camp, but perhaps (although unlikely) I can slip away on Saturday.

You'll have to carry the flag alone.

Finding it extremely difficult to motivate myself to prep the race car.

Forced myself to check the alignment last night. I felt I had maybe 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch of toe in. Decided to leave it alone, figuring I was more likely to make it worse rather than better.

Tonight, I forced myself to bleed the front brakes.

To some degree, I'm distracted by the Volvo. I keep puttering away trying to get that puppy on the road. Changed the oil, reconnected the ignition wiring and got it running the other night. Making progress on the seat belt install.

S2000 remains in storage, although today might have been a good day to have it out.

On the eve of leaving for Pitt Race, here is a video of me driving a Suzuki Swift at the Bushy Park circuit in Barbados. I was there visiting family and had a chance to visit the track and do their Suzuki Swift basic experience. It was 8 laps total with three of them following the instructor.
