Ron does have the 'real' race-car, but as many of you know, I've been campaigning 13492 in Autocross and Solo I for the better part of 10 years.  Due to wife, kids and other priorities I've had to take some time off. 

This weekend was the Central Florida Region of the SCCA's Solo Trials event marking the beginning of the 2007 Solo I season.  http://www.rivergate5speed.com/scca/timetrials/GainesvilleFlyer2007.pdf

Although the event was 350miles away I decided it was worth the effort to get back into the saddle.  Hats off to the CFR for a fantastic event as we tied the record for the most runs in a weekend.  Very well run.

For the first time in my memory, 13492 behaved herself on track and delivered an impressive showing considering the competition.  Although I had a tire with a slow leak and zero rear breaks I finished within 3 sec of the fastest E-prod and CSP cars.  The Hoosier 8" slicks on stock JH rims and the Toyota W58 transmission made a HUGE difference!

OK Ron...your turn to get some seat-time!
