Was just too busy to get out for the test day before the NOLA race, so went to NOLA not knowing if I still had an oil leak. The good news is that it's fixed, not a drop of oil on the ground all weekend.

The racing went well and I scored a 3rd, 1st, and 3rd for the enduro and sprints (8 cars in class) as well as the fastest SPB lap of the weekend. I've got lots of video, just need to find the time to edit and post. Luckily there is very little that needs to be done on the car between now the Road Atlanta race in less than two weeks.

Congrats!

Wish I could've made it -- but lost transmission at CoTA and just not enough time to turn it.

Definitely on the plan for 2019.

Congratulations! Very good results!

Please post up some video when you can, we'd all love to see it.

Video of the first half or so of Sprint 2 on Sunday. The top 4 boxsters were within 0.3 seconds of one another after qualifying (sprint 1). Todd beat me for SPB pole by 0.008 seconds! First corner set me back quite a bit, and I chased the top 3 until my spin. Mike gets by me, but I get buy him before the checker to take 3rd.

Happy with the car after just two race weekends.

Personal best lap was from the Thursday afternoon open practice. Didn't hurt that I had the tack to myself.

New to the forum and racing boxsters. Why did you raise the shifter ?

The shifters are raised to put it closer to your hand coming off the wheel to make your shifts faster and easier. As a rookie I was a bit skeptical too but it does make it better when racing.
