SCCA Sunburn May 2nd & 3rd
 (United States)

Fun weekend. After finally figuring out the handling issues and getting them in order, I was able to drive the car normally. I took it fairly easy on Friday as I just wanted to feel the car out. Found I was down on power too. So finished 5th friday. On saturday Qualified 2nd behind Tony.  I got bunched up at start going into turn 1 and Tony and Donato took high line and made it through. By the time I was through the cones, Donato and Tony were 5 car lengths or more ahead of me. I started to make up ground and then lost power again. Brought it in garage and found the wire on the lead coil terminal had come off. Oh well. still good weekend. We had 6 RX7's on Friday and 5 on Saturday.

Looking forward to Hallett.. who's all in

Congrats to Tony Lee for breaking Don Nay's long time TMS Race lap by one-tenth.  I think Qualfying record was broken too, but SCCA website doesn't have qualifying times up.  It was a good weekend, Buddy and I got the car back up to race mode after a couple year rest.

Yeah you're right Rob.

 In Saturdays race Tony got a 1:42.567 ( I got a 1:42.748 damn it:((   ). But I got the qual record on Friday at 1:43.137

I STILL don't like that Tony Lee chappy!

Mylaps has Tony down for a 1:43.078 for Saturday Q, but has you on pole Friday with a 1:43.943?  Is Mylaps off?

Ha! Not like he has never done that before. :)

Makes me look slow as that was the exact same car I was 2 seconds off the pace at MSR. I'm sure Tony removed the 150 lbs. extra weight, rebuilt the junk yard motor, rebuilt the carb, and gave it an alignment since I drove it. ;)

SCCA / Mylaps are correct.

It was  a combination of drafting ( It really does help.) and working hard to stay ahead of that Neon I knew he was the kiss of death..........if he ever got ahead infront of Donato and I
