    As promised here is a bit of a recap and some videos from our weekend at the SCCA Championship Tour in Texas this past weekend (College Station). First of all we were set to travel down on Friday morning, but the weather was looking really dicey and since we had decided to make it an all Miata weekend, with no support vehicle we left Thursday night. That ended up being a great call as we were able to take our time, enjoy the drive in the Miata's and get down there in plenty of time to not be rushed and even sleep in on Friday ...

    So after an awesome Mexican Breakfast Taco on Friday morning we headed out to the site for some testing before the later in the day weather was expected to come in. We had the wonderful experience of the car feeling really good right away without any setup changes to what we were thinking. It handled well and we were both comfortable with it. So with very little if any changes, we were ready to race. Now it was time to do the usual stuff of check in, tech the car, walk the courses, etc. We did all that and then had a nice dinner with some Friends Friday night on a Patio as the weather had cleared up and we had a really nice social time.

    So, Saturday comes around, we would work first heat and run third heat, so we'd be on the track around 12 noon. Forecast was Sunny and no clouds in sight. There were seven of us in the class. 5 Miata Drivers and 2 MR2 Drivers. The MR2 Toyota Drivers were sharing a car the same as Phil and I in my 2001 White Miata ...

    It became apparent to us both on the grid and after first runs that we'd be competing hard with the MR2 drivers all weekend for podium spots.

    After runs on day one, we were setting 1-4 in the order. The owner of the MR2 leading, David about 7 tenths behind. Then the co Driver of the MR closely followed by Phil. Everyone within striking distance of the Podium with David and the MR2 owner battling for the weekend win ...

    So, another night out, a bit calmer this time as we were pooped. We had enjoyed the first night restaurant so much we went back for a 2nd night to this same place!

    Back up early on Sunday for what would be the Money runs...

    We go out, Phil first and he takes over the 3rd place position. The Co Driver of the MR2 is next up and cones. David then goes and briefly moves into the lead, before getting bested by the MR2 owner. Phil and the MR2 co-driver would have the biggest battle with David settled into a comfortable second place, and the MR2 owner the victor. Unfortunately Phil had dug just a bit too much of a gap on day one and couldn't completely overcome it on day 2 for the last podium spot. He bested the MR2 co driver on day 2, but overall was still behind.

    In the end here were the final standings of the top 4 ... with the others trailing.

    Michael G - MR2 - 1:49.051
    David A - Miata 1:51.599
    Mike M - MR2 - 1:54.048
    Phil E - Miata 1:55.001

    Get this, in the end, we combined won almost $300 from Miata in contingency Money. Additionally $50 from Hawk Brake Pads, and another $150 from Bridgestone Tires! I guess we are real pros now. lol. Too bad we both individually spent more than that on Hotel alone!

    Here are some videos ...
