I'm towing down to Sebring to drive in the SVRA event next week. I just installed a 3.9 differential out of respect for the long straights. There's a one-hour Enduro on Thursday and a 25 minute Sprint on Friday. I'll try to file a report when the dust settles.

G'luck Michael!

All I need to do is retire and I'll have more time for this stuff. Some of my EMRA buddies will be down (crewing at the 12).

I'll be cheering on the Acura LMP2 car in the 12 hour, since an EMRA buddy of mine (Brendan Norton) has been working on it for the last year.

I know they're having a big MGA thing this year....maybe you'll get extra privleges for having an MGA engine! /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/jester.gif

Nial--

There are a good number of MG's running this year--you can view the entrant's list at the SVRA site. MG vintage racers seem to regard us Elva folks less as first cousins and more as red-haired step children (and underweight ones at that!) but I'm sure it will be a great time.

Good to know, now I will have someone else to watch/root for besides my buddies (differenct classes I'm sure, so hopefully no conflict of interests!!) A good friend is the tranny specialist and tire changer for the Champion team!

I will be flying a BCF pennant on the RV if anyone is around turn 13 infield!!

Mike--

Be sure to come find us--we'll be the only Elva Courier there! Normally the SVRA cars are parked down toward the end of the pits straight around turn 1.

I look forward to meeting you.
