Now it's closer to 3/4... Morning session is almost full. There's room in the afternoon though - we're done with the summer heat and the course will be nice and clean by then... :thumbwink:

Working on the course map! On the third major revision now. :smack: I think I like the latest one.

Meanwhile, there are just 7 slots open in the Late Session.

I think I got the last afternoon session entry. I'm begging the wife to let me flog the wagon, but she's not budging. Can't run the pick-em'up truck. I think Ben's got my back. I sold the Miata this summer. Very sad for a couple days.

I just looked at my tires. That track day at the FIRM did quite the number on them. I'm not expecting much.
