Still in PR right now. Had a blast at the race this past 5 days. It was nice to see old friends and made some new ones. It did rain some but it did not put much of a crimp in the racing.

As far as myself, I did not does as well as I liked in the open class but held my own in spec. Qualified 6th in the open C-main (15 car main) and 6th in the spec A-main (only main in the class). Had a good run in the open C-main until I got bumped into some water at the side of the track in a section and the water started jacking with my radio reception (had cooling holes drilled in my rx box). Was working my way to a bump-up spot until then. In the spec main, had fuel tank issues. Had a hole in the tank that got worse as the main went. Took the tank out of my open car and just kept going. In the 60 minute main, I worked my way up from last place all the way to 4th (with all the issues I was having).

Again, racing in PR is a blast and the racers here are fantastic. For those that did not make this race, you missed out on some great racing and fun atmosphere. Can't wat to come back and do another race at Barceloneta Raceway with Eggie, Jaime, Hilton (A main spec winner) and the rest of the GT family in PR.

Congratulations Paolo and Joaquin with the new SERPENT Cobra GT. It is incredible that the car is so competitive in the very first version! I am very impressed with both Peru and now Puerto Rico Results. Wow.

Great to see you Rino with GT Class. Woo Hooo!

Hola mi pana Andy!

Saludos a todo mis amigoas de La Isla!

The bodies are Alphas R3, the spurs will depend on which engine you are using.
On the basic sport engine I used in PR i used 15/18 44/48
I think Paolo an Joaquin were using 15/19 46/48 for their open class engine.
