Maybe sometimes it does pay to just show up. Last weekend’s class win has propelled us to fourth in our local SCCA points race, meaning we’re in the trophies.

I don't see Lakeland on the schedule, but good news, this is closer and we don't have to cross Orlando!

Congrats on the tie for E Street.

And I'm seeing Lakeland events listed for November 5 and December 10. I'm looking here.

Also, Martin's night event takes place on October 30.

Well, it's a surprise when the rest of the class is made up of Miatas that make a lot more power. We have a cool field down here.
