Only my 2nd podium this year in over 60. I'm near 65, all those "youngsters" making it hard, lol!

Re: TORCS this w/e

Did the race in Lockhart today. It was a blast. Don't know if I'll do it tomorrow, will see how much my body cries from the workout today.

hmmmm, weather could be an issue, but looks like a rain or shine event, not sure, but seems like it's on.

Re: TORCS this w/e

Raining buckets here early this morning. I'm several miles from the race but looking at the radar... seems to be pretty widespread.

Best call Gil or Mary or whoever before loading up for the trip.

It was obvious from midweek this was a rain or shine event! lol
And it did rain, as you say buckets, sort of, and the show did go on.

Practice was terrible, this property has several extremely steep drop ins and climb outs, very steep and with the rain very slick. I set at one for 10 minutes till all the bikes were cleared out to continue. I was getting intimidated on this one, even got directions from the course marshall for returning to camp. Decided to carry on, finished practice and decided to race.

Glad I did, the course came around to be extremely awesome conditions, you just never know!

Re: TORCS this w/e

Very good TORCS course. Practice was VERY slick. Many up and downs with very slick climbs. A lot of bottlenecks. But dang the race was hero dirt as Gil Ramos promised.
Congrats to Larry Gustine on another win. Outlaw Trax riders in 1st and 2nd in over 60A. In practice I was pretty intimidated, almost quit. Mike Clifton had already gave me directions to camp. Lol.
