MSU 8/17

Postby DaveMk1 » Sun Aug 17, 2008 5:25 pm

Well what a great day. There was something extra fun about today and it's hard to put my finger on it. A fun safe course, timing that worked, great attitudes on everyone's part, the fact that I came closer to Nick in Pax than I usually do and the best part............ the lovely Karin came out to event and took her first autocross ride in the Birkin and had so much fun she hard to do it again.

All in all a great day. Thanks Russ for putting it on and Mike for driving the luxury van down from Helena and to Joe for being a super safety steward (SSS).

One of the best days of the year.

The results are up! Everyone can see how I kicked Dave's butt in Pax, and he barely squeeked by me in raw!:lol:

Thanks all. It was a good event aside from the sprinkler incident. However, everyone seemed in good temper and we made it through. I'm bummed I couldn't catch that goofy lookin' white neon though :)

Fun course, Fun Event.

Sorry I had to skip out a little early. Had plans to celebrate my daughters birthday at 5:00 so I wanted to get home and clean up.

Have some video of some of the cars in run group 2 that I hope to have posted withen the next couple of days. I will get a link up when done. Includes Dave's Birkin, Bill's GT500, Deb's 'stang, Joe's R32 and I think a couple others. Can't forget some in car footage of me. I bought a wide angle lens and that helped a lot but still got some glare on the windshield.

Thanks to all for making such a hot day so fun! Looks like I finally got a case of the cones. I was tapping them all afternoon.

Great event, did anyone remember to re-open that sprinkler valve?

Ya gotta watch out for those cones. I actually had one put a dent in my car. We're going to try and straighten it with dry ice today.
