Gus, I'd like to make the race as well, but not sure I can make another long weekend with the travel, but we'll see. Yes I remember you gaining a full lap over what you were running.

Not sure that event is going to happen this year, as I have a lot going on right now. But if it sparks some life, you will be in the first batch of people to notify.

I would like to thank Sweep for the support and John for being a class act...
We hope to get to see you there.... TIMEZONE GRAN PRIX July 22,23,24 2011

Car was quick when the engines worked, but never did run a full qualifier. Was on pace to be gridded 5/6 in the A, but hey that is racing.

Just a quick thanks for the great tires. My ten year old son ran his first big GT race this past weekend at the Byron's race. He qualified mid B main and after the 30 minute race finished 4th. I settled on 50's on the front and 45's on the rear for his main. This calmed the steering down a little for him from the quals where he ran 50's all around. Again nice tires. Here he is adding a little love to his tires. Pic by YmeBP.

I ran the Sweep 55s at our race in Salt Lake City Saturday for the first time. I pushed them hard in 90+ weather to see what they could take and set a new fast lap time on the track in the process. They ROCK!
