Thanks to all who came out today.

Despite a lot of no shows, due to the holidays, we had 17 different racers, and really a different cast of characters.

Between this, and last month's race, we've had 26 different racers.

Big thanks. to all the volunteer marshal's, and to those who brought snacks.

Next month's race date is yet to be determined.

Sorry I couldn't make it. I was planning on it up until my wife's car needed some attention. I like the classes you are running monthly.

Looking forward to the January race, skipping GLISRA so I'll really be itching to get some track time.

It will be great to have you., KVP.

 

John and I just decided on Jan. 21st.

 

The 14th wasn't available, because along with an afternoon party already scheduled, I always do a VW car club event, that evening before the MLK holiday.
