The plan is to have our first club race on it this weekend. We are expecting good grip with low tire wear. The sealer has been down for about 2.5 weeks now. I watched a rubber tire sedan with a 5.5 in it run around on it last week and the track looked to be smoother with great grip for rubber tires with no prep on the track.

Is it just me, or is it really weird that we are talking about the GLC and have yet to have a club race......

I don't think it is weird at all. We will get one in this week hopefully.

I'm planning on being there for the GLC this year. I'll be taking photos, and probably video.

The reports I do will be posted both here, and also at the new SGrid vBulletin forum..

2nd Club race yesterday and traction ( a few traction rolls) was great with some really fast runs and low tire wear. Everyone was scrambling to find harder tires LOL

Even though I racked up about 12 practice laps all day yesterday, the traction was insane. Then, Ohio weather didn't let us down. At 2:00, we had a torrential down pour that ceased all racing. Our track is going to be in EXCELLENT shape for GLC this year. If you thought years past were fast, you ain't seen nothin' yet!

Thumbs up

Traction was almost to high if that is possible. The track was even faster after the rain went away and we got some practice in. GLC will be GREAT!
