$35/8 = about 4 dollars an hour, cheaper than a movie.

Cathy said she's coming to deliver the honey and make sure I'm not late.

Thanks for sharing the pics and videos Ray. Did you get a 12A count? I think it may have been over 10 with the last 1st gen that rolled in there.

I wish I could. That is what we were thinking it had. I think it was Charlie that told us it only had a...... well now I can't remember if it was a 13b or a 12a.

12A for sure. That thing would rock. A Mini with a 12A. Think about it.

Im pretty sure Charlie said it had a 13B in it which confused me as to why they put RX8 on it.

Maybe they built it before the 8 was out. They should change it to RX-6 since we have a RX-9.

The Mini had a street ported 13B with a Holley 4 barrel. The owner, John Finger, came by my spot in the paddock and showed it to me.
__________________________________________

I had a great time this year. I was in the paddock most of the time with my 1979 IMSA GTU RX-7. I had a chance to stop by turn 3-4 area and talk to some nice fellow rotorheads on Saturday. I wish I had spent more time with y'all.

I came in 3rd in my race on Saturday, I was about 0.6 seconds off the pace of the fastest GTU Porsche then. On late Sunday, in the last race, I had my act together and ran good, and won the GTU class. I was able to get a good draft off a bigger engine class Porsche Cup car, and I was hitting 151 mph on the back straight right before I had to dive on the brakes and slow it to 40 mph for turn 10a. Not bad for a 31 year old RX-7, that normally only runs 145 mph on the back straight.

I had put up some sale papers offering my race car for sale at $21,900, and I had my cell phone number on the paper. Well, Saturday night, someone stole my cell phone at the party So, if you are one of the ones interested in my car, please PM me here, or call me at home

256- eight eight zero -2796 in the evenings

CONGRATULATIONS on the win on Sunday. Everyone in our crowd enjoyed watching you race around the track.
I wish we could have seen the 13B mini running around. Was it loud, or pretty quiet? Any porting on it?

Congrats on the win. You had a small but vocal cheering section in the turn 3-4 area.

The solid blue #79 RX-7 in mid-pack of that Saturday race is me, Tom Turner.

The white with blue trim 1983 RX-7 at the back of the pack is Ray Hill.

Our race group 9 was a mix of IMSA cars, Trans-Am cars, Porsche Cup cars, Grand-Am cars and the LeMans Pratt& Miller C5R Corvette. Ray Hill and myself had the smallest engines out there; even if you 2x multiply our engines and call them 2.6 liters we were still the smallest engines out there.

I haven't received any photos from this weekend yet. I attached a photo of my 1979 car from an older race at Barber Motorsports Park.

Finally got around to getting my Mitty pics up. At my campsite we ended up with
1 Rx2, 2 SAs, 5 FBs, 1 FC (preproduction).

Datsun was the mark of the day and BRE was honored as well. This brought
out more Datsun 510s than I've ever seen in my life. The Saturday parade
laps for Datsuns filled the entire track end to end.

Heres ye olde campsite on Friday afternoon.



And of course my SA



A rotorhead from Virginia met up with us at the Cracker Barrel after breakfast
and he had a very nice tornado gray FB. His name was Aaron and if your reading
this get on here and give us some contact info.



On Saturday after the breakfast, Holly and Kristy finally found us in Kirstys
red prepoduction FC. Nice car. Very interesting to look thru.



One really sweet Datsun 510 engine bay.



OMG! Look at all the Datsuns lined up for the parade lap.



Most fanactical Datsun guy at the Mitty.



Theres more images at http://picasaweb.google.com/tgfarrell/Mitty2010#.

I'm definitely doing this again next year.

I've been hawking threads for the past few weeks. Trying to get oriented. Just found this thread. Nice pics. I officially announce for the entire rotary community to know that I see the error of my ways and repent of not putting in the effort to get on the forum and be involved.
