R,
Don't complain about yout car. It is good Thanks for letting me throw it around some.

I found that mine actually broke the left side of the rear subframe where the control arms bolts on. It sheared the entire mount. I'm really glad we weren't on the 12 hour course this time.

See ya soon
Jim

Well, I told my student to follow your line as we were going into Tower turn. I thought he could benefit from a later turn in. By the carousel, he said "easier said than done!!" You were gone too quick for me to tell much.

Subframe is out. New one is cleaned up. I'll have it in this weekend. I might be at Homestead breaking in another 7. Not sure yet...

See ya..

Great event. Lots of track time. No altercations. NO damage that I heard of other than a certain 911 which might need new rear rotors. Most of the Students/drivers did a great job.

Road and Track was there doing an article. For those who don't know, they brought two original Ford GT40's and a new Ford GT. Beautiful cars. They ran a few laps in each. What a thrill.

I've got a short clip of us getting passed by Brian Redman going into the safety(hair)pin. Those things are FAST...
