    Considering your location, I would think it would be just the beginning of your race season.

    All our racing is from March to Nov. Nobody around during summer, they all hit the beach and make family points so they get allowed to race! Its dry down here in winter!

    There must be a wide variation of climates in Chile. Are you in the north, central, or south?

    Central, so its rather like mid to bottom California. Off to our final race next week, a 3 hour enduro down south, which is a lot like northern Washington state. Doing all the prep for it now!!

    Best of luck. I take it you were successful in convincing your mechanic not to remove the heads.

    Yes, he was impressed how good the engine looked...

    Thanks!!,,, I tell Andres as soon as I find out who he is!!! :):) Will make a video of the highlights! Its me Matthew Thomson,,,, But not the other Matthew Thompson who goes to the TMO facebook page!

    Feeling good, My copilot got invited to drive at a cayman GT4 enduro at the same track this weekend... he had rain but still did well... So the Boss should be in decent hands... He likes the Boss better!
