Was a pretty decent weekend for us.
Racing in the rain on Saturday sure isn't fun in a heavy, RWD V8 car but we did okay. A few things didn't quite go well for us but we managed a 5th overall and 1st in class in the Cobra. Renters brought our Mazda in for 1st in class and 18th overall. We managed to avoid any on-track incidents in both cars and brought them back just really dirty and ready for Sunday. I started the race on Saturday and was sad to see the multiple crashes. As has been said, the burnout boxes on the front straight were like ice. I hit one on Saturday morning a few laps into the race knowing this, but the car still almost went sideways. Hopefully the less fortunate teams will get their cars back out and their drivers are all okay.
Sunday was better for the Cobra, worse for the Mazda.
During the 1st stint for the Mazda our driver reported a loss of 3rd gear which led to @MoparBoyy and crew doing a trans swap in the 626 in the garage. For the next few hours, the car was fine, but as the temps increased, the car started to stumble and die. The first time it happened, we found a sketchy surge tank pump wire and fixed it. The car finished the stint and the next driver went out on track. Twice the car was flat towed back to the pit. In the paddock it started, revved, ran and seemed fine. Back out again and 20 minutes later it would happen again. We never solved it but think that it's related to under-hood heat. A renter crashed at Sebring in Sept and we replaced much of the body including the hood and did not vent it.
The Cobra ran strong and during the one rain stint we ran hard on a wet track and were able to work back into P1. Alas, we missed a very short FCY around lap 83 (single paced lap). Next time we'll be more prepared for these. @MoparBoyy had a great stint racing with the Good, Bad, Ugly Camaro and @Snake finished off the race with us in P3. I had a great time out there running with the Altima, Tuttle and Danger Racing for a chunk of my stint. Some nice clean racing and fun as hell.
Overall another race weekend in the books and we are getting ready for Road Atlanta.
