    Anyone doing it with me ? I think the first one is on the 8th. I'm bringing the Loyale for some thrashing around.

    wintercross is ON.

    Sandwiches and Coffee tomorrow as well. I'll be bringing whatever I can to produce heat, and I'll be camped out in the wagon between runs. I'm bringing all my gear in a cooler to keep it dry, and I'll have a helmet.

    Good times were had by all. The Loyale actually kicks alittle ass - but the published results later will tell the tale.

    I wish I could have taken more pics, there was lots of seat time... if by seat time you count waiting in line :)

    3 runs, all about 2 minutes. Good snow pack, warmer weather made the snow disappear in the corners on the 3rd run.

    Hey Steve,

    Sorry, I just saw this post. I haven't been on for a while. It looked like a lot of co-driving was going on today.

    BTW, I heard that the trucking company placed some rocks out in the lot that can't be seen when there's snow on the ground. I also heard that the rocks killed three cars (not CART people) and the owners were arrested.

    I don't think I did that well today. I screwed up my last run which had the most potential due to the exposed pavement.

    Today's more relaxed environment was great... on the 3rd run I attached the cell phone (There were guys staging on their phones) to the interior and walked my friend through real-time. the 3rd run I soon realised that I could DIVE into the corners and put my faith into the dry spots to right the car. It was mainly point and click - pick a direction, go, swing the car around to match the next direction, punch it and go again.

    As far as rocks... I don't get it - They don't like us being there ? Who were the 3 cars, if not CART people ?

    Wow... Everyone made great strides in improving their 3rd run.... but me :)

    The fact that you whupped me doesn't surprise me.. the fact that you whupped me in a Type R in packed snow does :mrgreen:

    I think Warren did FTD in the Diesel Dodge full-size, right ?

    Warren was in the Audi #17.

    Nice times in the wagoon, Steve. I'm assuming the 104.12 for my 2nd run is the correct time? The posted results give it as 154.12, which seemed quite slow.

    I don't know if it was intentional (probably was), but I think the trucking company doesn't want people racing in the lot outside of CART. Probably a lawyer/liability thing - or maybe they've had problems with vandalism or something. Anyway, I guess they're into pressing charges.

    When I said they weren't CART people, I meant they were kids or something that went there at night to play around.

    Chip: Yeah, I saw a Minute:second posting so I (converted it). Makes more sense anyway... 154 seconds seems like you would have to be stuck for a couple seconds which you never were.

    As far as Martine, it's scary seeing Martine drifting corners, engine braking, and tossing inertia through corners.

    Ah, you're right. I didn't notice the :

    I wonder what happened to Matt's last time? It was pretty quick, which would have placed him quite a bit higher than they have him.
