      It rained the last time I ran Sears Point and it rained again this time! Because of the track remodeling project, NASA was using one of the many, temporary track configurations.  I had been really looking forward to this event because my car was actually running with 4 working shocks.....I had run the last two events with a dead left rear. Also, because I finally had time....work has been cutting into my fun time!

      The first two sessions were mostly run with lots yellow flags. The track conditions were pretty bad and too many people were learning it the hard way. You'll notice during the straight from the Carousel that my car hydroplanes quite easily. What you don't see are the two wide streams water across the track.  Our 3rd session was black flagged before I made a half lap due to a damaged car covering a section of the track. The fourth session is when things start to heat up and dry out. The car ran great and is now ready to run Thunderhill this Thursday.

      Enjoy the vidz.
