We're in Dixie!

We got on the road around 5:50AM this morning and arrived at South Georgia Motorsports Park shortly after noon. The trip was pleasantly uneventful, except for a minor incident that introduced the tongue jack of my trailer to the asphalt dip at the end of Garrett's driveway. This brought progress to a loud, screeching, halt. After backing up, and trying again, we were on our way. Jokingly, we exchanged thoughts about how big a hole I just dug. When we stopped at Garrett's office to pickup a canopy, we noticed that the tongue jack definitely lost the encounter with the asphalt. It's got about a 45 degree lean to it now. Oh well. It didn't affect getting here. I've been wanting to upgrade and relocate the jack anyway. Looks like I have an excuse now!

Once we arrived, it was a flurry of activity to unload the car and prep for the test and tune. Surprisingly, after 2 runs each, on 80+ run Hoosiers, we were turning competitive times. The car feels awesome. The only change for the competition will be to bolt on the new Hoosiers.

Tomorrow's course looks like a dream for the s2000 -- lots and lots of transitions and slaloms. We're really looking forward to Day 1 competition tomorrow!

Here's a quick video of Garrett's fastest run on the test and tune course:
