Lightbulb *yawn* Up Bright and Early for an Autox

In the mornings I'm never quite sure why I do this friggen sport. I mean, I like to sleep. When there is an autox, I get up earlier than I do for regular work. And some weekends, like this one, where I have two events on back to back days... I seriously start to wonder if all of the porch lights are on, if you get my drift.

Today I'm off to represent Porsche at a BMWCCA event at a "less like an autox, more like a mini track" go karting track. Plenty big enough and long enough for cars, but typically they run karts.

Tomorrow I'm off to Seneca Army Depot, an abandoned airstrip that results in typical 75 second runs. Never competed with the region that is hosting there (Glen Region), so I'm hoping I can show up, show off, and go home with a trophy

Anyway, this was mostly a "I need to wake up more before I walk out the door" post...and I'm super excited about having two more events this weekend!

Good luck Cassandra and Unkle. Have fun and be safe. I hate morning as well, but I'm off to the dragstrip, so that makes it slightly more tolerable.

Left home at 6 this morning to head to Pocono. Got to ride as a passenger on an instructor group run in a GT3. Wow. Just wow.
