Zooming in Fort Worth - Equiraptor's Journal
Zooming in Fort Worth
This weekend is the Fort Worth National Tour (yes, that'd be autocross/SCCA Solo II). I'm heading up for my first National Tour event. I'm nervous, but not for any real reason. I've driven to Fort Worth countless times, I've hauled trailers thousands of miles, I've been to plenty of autocrosses. Still, it's my first Tour, my first event with contingencies, and I'm enjoying being nervous about it.

I'll be heading up to Fort Worth Friday morning, and I'll hopefully manage to get the car tech'd that day. My class (CSP) is in the first run group and third work group, so I'll be racing in the morning. There'll be a lot of tire changing, as I need the street tires on the car overnight, but the racing tires for, well, the racing (duh). There's two days of racing - Saturday and Sunday - and then it's back home to Austin for work on Monday. Weeeee.

Nugget will be with the Driver's Edge at Motorsports Ranch this weekend, instead of the National Tour. The track is more his car's style, while mine's more at home mashing through cones.

Good luck this weekend. Kick some ass and let me know how you did when you get back. Should be good weather and I will be enjoying a drive up to Shiner for the Shiner Bash charity bike ride. I will be driving my Miata of course.

Thanks. The trailer's packed and ready in the garage. I just have my trunk and the cooler to pack!

One of these years, I want to try to get all my beer loving friends to go on the Shiner run. Obviously, this isn't gonna be the year. Enjoy it!

Uh, the idea is not to mash any cones...

she *knows* the idea, but based on Louisiana, she hasn't mastered it yet ;)

Like I said, my car is more at home mashing through cones.
