I went last weekend and made some bucks. I got 6th overall, in a GTS, and 1st is IS1. Great event and great competition. I'd be back this weekend to get some more money if I did not have a local event to run.
Good driving Dave, are you still using those 16 inch GTS rims when you ran? Thanks for proving to the STS Celica group that Kalman is beatable. I just wish the local group here could take the next step up. Good luck at the SD Tour.
Actual I am running 16x7 rota slipstreams. In Will's defense his tires gave up, because we squashed the event into one day. I still would have beat him though.
Thanks, I hope to win this time. I got third last year and Will was a second out in front. At least we know he can be beat. I have a couple more parts that I am updating on Saturday and testing all day Sunday for San Diego. Hopefully these should do what I want, which is to pull more than the 1.05G on the Falkens.
I just saw this press release on Honda-Tech regarding the upcoming Fontana event (and I guess subsequent PRO events) :
National Auto Sport Association (N.A.S.A.) and Precision Racing
Organization announce joint marketing venture.

jump from the street to the track can be too long for some to take in
one step". Jerry Kunzman, Executive Director of N.A.S.A., says,
"autocross both a great starting point, and a great way to
participate in motorsports while placing the car and driver in a
minimum risk/maximum fun environment." "The technical advances that
the Precision Racing Organization have pioneered are truly un-equaled"
The two expanding and leading edge companies will combine their
marketing efforts to make it easier than ever for a motorsports
