Yours truelly thought half a tank was enough for the 20min race...not.. ran out of gas 200m from the finish line.... What a Nittwit

But got enough points to finish second overall in my category... The GT4 ahead of me is in the next category up. Not bad for Hoosiers with 28 heat cycles!!!!!! His had 6.

Madhatter and his supersonic swine, nah, I am going to go with Matt and the Mustang who thought he could ----- love the overachieving since on paper you not be beating many of those cars. What , you can't outrun a full Porsche GT3, ha. Hang in there and we are all looking forward to your videos.

looking at the video.... I feel like an idiot, the vibration was too much for the camara.... Probably should not have driven but after so much time without racing, could not help myself. Will see If I can put one together.

No worries Mad, looks like you go " Hog Wild " on the track all the time, ha! Sorry, I didn't mean to ham it up, but definitely have the chops to beat folks with more expensive toys - congrats.

I find it comical, you have the list of all these Spanish sounding names and right in the middle there is "Mathew Thomson". You must stick out like a sore thumb.

Yup thats me.... El Gringo ________ .... Some times they add some colorfull words to the phrase.

And its true. the turds swirl the other way here!! I have checked and verified the fact!!

Funny thing is that I dont stick out "that" much, lots of taller drivers with european back rounds. For some reaon, they though its was a good idea putting me in charge of our category. They thought I would be fair!! :D:cool:
