Guys and Gals
I would like to start a picture/video/story log from the Superfest this weekend. I had a great time as usual and actually made it home last night with everything intact.
We had a huge contingent of of BMO members including Pufferfish, Pete in CT, steveespo, 2012-Boss, wwilde, and others like Greg, Dan and Guy who I can't remember their handles and even a few folks that I can't recall their names (Sorry guys my memory is shot)
There were good natured but intense lapping battles all three days between myself, Pete, Steve K and Bill Wilde (who sandbagged in the lower inter group, but was the quickest of us all) which really made the weekend fun. Steve K was super quick on Michelin Super Sports and Pete was Quick on both old and new Nittos. Bill was just flat fast in his Capaldi prepared/quasi 2013 302S/LS and made me 4 seconds faster on Sunday!!!!!

There was of course the now customary last minute repairs sessions, Steve K had 2 tire valve failures, one he was able to fix, but Sunday there were no shops open so Puffer came to the rescue, loaning him a set of Toyos so he didn't lose the day. Pete always has a drama, we did a tire change and pad replacement Saturday but did not change the obviously 2012 vintage rotors he had up front so on Sunday 10 minutes before the drivers meeting we broke it down and changed out the rotors. Dan had a P0300 as did Steve K, Dan's cleared but Steve ended up with a succession of misfire codes and a trip to the Crank sensor TSB department is in order.

Anyway as everyone pointed out I am long winded so here are a few pics to get us started, please chime in with stories, pics videos and post lap times here and in cosm3os' Lap time thread.

Great photos and I'm glad everyone had a good time. I recognize Steve and Pete but can someone put names to the other faces?

We'll be doing the West Coast BMO version on June 8th at Thunderhill.

Steve Puffpaff is on the top step of the podium, he was really quick, I illegally timed him at a 2:09.78 on 1 of his laps, Steve Kersch is to his right, wwilde, "the Wild Man" is far right in the photo, Greg Procaccini is on Pete's right, Dan Kemp is on Pete's left. Tony Sorrentino the event organizer is on my left, the gentleman in the glasses next to Tony, I don't recall his name.

Steve, I think we all had a great time. The last casualty not listed was Steve Puffpaff's wheel stud. The front right wheel lug nut froze half way off the stud and the stud started spinning in the hub, not allowing him to take off his monstrous 305 Continental Racing slick for the trip home. We finally got him going with 4 good studs and lug nuts at around 5:30. I'll let him chime and for the details.
