2010 Points #8

E-mail Print PDF

Record turnout for E Mod, 8 entries, though one of them, the turbocharged Factory Five, did not make the event.  Two drivers in the D Prepared (Muff/Gorman), my friend Todd w/ his freshly installed turbocharger (black Miata), the fastback supercharged Miata, the stripped out green Miata, and I had a guest co-driver, Deech.  An added bonus, my cousin's oldest son, Cody, is starting at GA Tech, and came out to the event to see what it was all about.

Boiling hot day, late start for various reason, but we still had a great time.  Managed to finish behind the DP and fastback, but ahead of my co-driver, Todd, and the stripped Miata, about what I had expected.  It was nice having someone else drive the car, esp someone whose background is in a similar car.  That I managed to be quicker than him was nice, familiarity with the car's handling and power delivery pays big dividends.

Cody managed to get something like seven or eight rides in a variety of cars, and generally had a great time.
