Wilton Mall Event #3!

Some people don't like the idea of a short course but I'm telling you the course Burt from MoHud put together was 30-some-odd seconds of pure joy! This time another figure 8 with a partial double over made for an awesome time!

My wife even entered in her 328xi auto! She had a blast and with the help of a VERY experienced driver she shaved 12 seconds off her time and never hit a single cone!

I wound up steering the wagon to second place in ST! I had the ST FTD for the morning session until Carmine, a very smooth driver, got me by a half second in the afternoon.

The wagon is holding up amazingly! The motor is running VERY strong with 169k on the clock, the new rear Bilstien's seemed to make a nice difference in the way the rear end behaved! I had one blown Bilstien in the back so to get 2 good and new shocks back there was a must.

I have a new favorite job while working. GRID! It's a great way to get to know the other drivers that you wouldn't normally get a chance to see if you were out on the course.

Our next event is at the best site we have in our region! Fortitech! AND we have a Test-n-Tune on Saturday followed by the points event Sunday! Probably going to get in the neighborhood of 16 to 17 runs that weekend if the weather cooperates!
