    I am excited that both are sponsoring the MC. I am actually making a trip up to FCM today to order some Elite's and may plan to do something similar with BFW in a year or two if the budget allows.

    Come out this weekend and you could be a big winner!

    We are still in the process allocating the awards per event to insure that we can cover the entire season. But that said the amount each driver could receive will be much more than that past couple of years, also all MC events will get a $30 discount just to sign up...

    Not sure on the FCM prizes, but I'll be giving out Blackbird Fabworx gift certs which can be used for the purchase of retail items like seats, harnesses and other vehicle prep related stuff like Aerocatch latches, and of course custom fabrication services of whatever you need.
    Definitely worthy prizes, but you do have to make it to the events..

    I am allowed to compete but I'm not eligible for any of the prizes other than end of season trophy if I end up in the top 3 of my class and of course the trophy girl, which Aaron suggested it'll be Grant in a bikini.
    The prizes will be shifted to the next person, so if I win 2nd place take 1st prize, 3rd takes 2nd prize and so forth..
    This applies to year end prizes as well

    OK, that's a cool shot! Pretty telling too. Blackbird, that ride of yours is cornering FLAT! Looks more like a go-kart.

    Erik's 1:29 lap is very imprassive indeed!
    Ed said something about calculating the points wrong last year and said he should've been in Mod the whole time.. I didn't follow the conversation completely so I'm not sure how the point count went.
    Ryan's 1:23.6 is the fastest a Miata has ever gone on street tires, isn't it?
    He was running down almost every car in both Green and Red groups, probably set a time within the top 5 FTDs.

    I don't think anyone has come close to to 1:23's on street tires. I think our 95R did 1:27's last spring but that's at 2350#/145whp and no aero.

    Somebody needs to convert the pdf to HTML and post the results here.
