192 Cobra and Saleen 367...... Great to see you posting and we hope both of you are going to the RA Event in April? That would be a great way to meet more of the Track Addicts from TMO!!

The poster is accurate as we all need some fodder for the Fords to dominate over!
As much as I would love to be there in April, the idea of an HPDE event while the snow is still melting in the paddock messes with my head. ;)
All kidding aside, not sure I want to commit to April yet, but am registered for July and plan on Blackhawk Farms as well. I even talked a co-worker into running RA with his GT350. Should be a good time.

Attention , attention.............!!! Checked and there are only JimmyB, JeffB, KirkL, and myself listed for the April Road America event on Motorsports Regs. I know there are at least 4 others going , but the one issue could be that you have to fill out their Tech Inspection within 24 hours of registration before you are a confirmed registrant. So if you are not listed , you may not have done this. I am sure there are even more than the 4 I mentioned, but I do not know everyone's actual name, so chime in if you are going?? I am posting this so folks can also check on their registration since without a Tech sheet they are likely not in the queue , even though they believe they are. Be cool if we get 10 or more TMO folks there , as that would make us the dominant Club for sure!!

That would be a great number since currently there are only 13 Mustangs signed up ---- before the event is over we should be able to get all of the Blue Oval Attendees to sign up on TMO!!!

TonyStang ........sorry I was just referring to the Road America Event at the end of April, because I checked the Participants and noted quite a few TMO members were not listed ( in two cases I knew they had registered earlier).

Tony, should have been a bit clearer, my bad, and glad you are able to go to one of their track events!! You are way ahead of schedule and I had a couple of guys contact me and say they are going , but had not actually signed up yet.

Fixed that. For some reason the site kept sending me to the 2019 tech sheet. Then, as shocking as it was, would Not accept an old tech sheet. All good now.

Roll bar and harnesses are installed. New pads and a quick check of “Vital Fluids” and I will be ready to go.

Not overly surprised about the amount of Mustangs since it is put on by the Northwoods Shelby Club. My Porsche buddy tells me they're a great bunch of guys.

Against the advice of the dark (winter) side of my brain, I'm also signing up for April Spring Fling after a 25 year hiatus driving RA. I'll use it as a way to get reacquainted with the track, learn the limits of the car and dodge snow balls.
Notice how 1 day of weather in the 60's changes my demeanor? :D
Here's a pic of my last outing ...

An email I got from the Northwood Shellby club. As of now, they plan on running the event.

"With Covid-19 dominating the news, we wanted to let everyone know that as of
right now the April Road America event is being held as planned.

The only reason the event would be cancelled is if Road America were told by
county, state, or federal authorities to do so. If that happens, full entry
fees will be refunded or credited to your Motorsportreg.com account.

We are waiving the $50 late fee for the April event. Registration will still
close on Thursday, April 16. On-site registration will be available.
On-site entry fee: $350 for one day or $525 for both days.

As we all know, this situation changes daily. If there are any updates
regarding the event, you will know as soon as we know. "

I sure hope so as found out I have been running all last year with my rear shocks pounding the bump stops and the left front one is not leaking ( anymore ) , since it is completely dry ----no fluid. Figure I might run a bit better with 4 properly adjusted shocks than 3 improper ones, haha. Figure the 10 person rule announced yesterday could screw this up, but heck no one will be very close over the zillion acres Road America encompasses so here's hoping for good news!!??
