    Congrats Ed. You gave the whole group quite a difficult target for next year.

    Figured you guys would’ve figured out by now that I am graceless in every aspect of life. It used to bother me, but now . . .

    Hey guys, anyone get the last name of Bob from Nova Scotia?

    Jim Ignacio is editing his video of the weekend and asked me if I knew.

    By any chance was Bob in the autocross? Might have his name there.

    Speedster’s club have posted a video of the Carlisle weekend…Unfortunately Bob’s last name is Nova Scotia.

    I thought that Jim did a great job on this video.  So, I sent it to my son who spent many years living in Hawaii.  His comments:  


    Very cool video….thanks. A bit of advice for your buds next year……..NEVER EVER tuck in a Hawaiian shirt.

    The “Centerfold” photo of August Kit car Builder was titled “The Wonderful World of Porsche Replicas”.  It was taken at Carlisle this year.  Flanking the Porches on left and right are the MG Replicars.  I couldn’t get it below 1.2M.  Below is link to photo, you probably have to cut and paste, get message Flickr doesn’t allow embedding within frames.

    I re-cut the Carlisle race vid. Next year we need to get driver’s seat shots of everyone in action.

    Ed, I had some company today and decided to show them just how great you were in the Autocross. I couldn’t get your link to load.  ???

    Also, Ed, I know that my car is faster than your’s (I think).  And, I refuse to believe that you are a better driver than I am (though it is remotely possible).  The only thing that I can figure out is the sun being in my eyes for about 1/2 of the race was a disadvantage.:lol:

    But, I do have a serious question: did you ever come out of second gear?  Did you use 3rd?

    Link fixed. Thanks for the head-up, Roy.

    And no. No shifting. Probably over-revved though. Even 5k on that engine is overdoing it. That’d be about 45 mph in Bridget.
