Still workin on the Rahal Tour...As far as tix, you can order from Road America directly, just order before the deadline and let them know you are ordering with the Iowa Chapter BMWCCA. ($85 for Saturday and Sunday) We are going with a group, and leaving on Friday around noon from DSM. You are more than welcome to join us.

Can we do it again this weekend? Why did it have to stop raining? I love passing Vettes like they're standing still, freakin' awesome. Thanks to Russ for going out with me in the rain, helped a ton. Sure we should have some pics soon

On the gas early and hard
Still in the gas
Best drift I've ever had, very controlled, smooth, and freakin' LONG.

Nice pics! The M looks good Ru. Maybe a fast friday sometime soon to sooth the itch? Noticed in your pics that Jeremy's rain line doesn't look like the same one Russ had me driving......wonder why. This was one of the better on-track weekends for a MAM school I thought. Sucked on Friday but Sunday was awesome. Especially the Vettes in the wet. THAT'S IT!!!!!!! If you are what you eat I must be a WET VETTE!!!!! LOL Missed the off track conversations since Chad was in another room but maybe next time.

Depending on the lap that was taken we were trying different lines to test grip of the car/track.




Side note... MUSTANG results are up Brian. Gives you an idea of what to shoot for on the 21st.

Maybe I was out in the wet with Russ after you were, because he knew exactly where he wanted me to be. You going on the 21st? Hope so, it'd be alot of fun I think. If it's organized......

Well if you are going off of the turn 15 picture from above. I wasn't where he wanted me to be there. Didn't get that one right the entire session.

I will be at the eddyville event the 21st. We'll have to get a meet spot organized and get after it.
