Default TCS Finals

Well, I have auditors in my office all week long so no practice time on Th or Friday. But I am certainly looking forward to the race this weekend. First, thanks to Fred and Tamiya for a great event and a great series, second, what a great time to spend with buddies and in my case with my kiddo. Looking forward to clean racing and maybe even a good showing. See ya all on the track.

Default Aliso Viejo forcast weather for the weekend

Saturday
A chance of drizzle before 11am. Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, cloudy through mid morning, then gradual clearing, with a high near 76. Light south wind becoming southwest 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon.

Sunday
Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, cloudy through mid morning, then gradual clearing, with a high near 78. Calm wind becoming west around 5 mph in the afternoon.

Looks like it is going to be one of the "cooler" TCS finals in recent history.

Best of luck to everyone this weekend.

Wish I could be there, but our 38th anniversary is on Saturday and it's just not in the cards.

Go big or go home....I went for it all out. Thanks for getting that on film. The wife thought it was very entertaining. and I have something cool to show the kids hahahahaa

Big thanks to Tamiya for putting on another great TCS nats. Also thanks to Johnny for announcing and helping out (i owe you a drink brotha). To all the winners, good luck in Japan. A special congrats and thumbs up to RodC....you proved that you are still the man to beat at the Tamiya track with all these past champs breathing down your neck. Racing GT-1 this year against all you past champs gave me just a small glimpse of what it takes to win this thing. I have a lot of respect for all you champions and even more so now. Now, go do some work over there 2012 champs!
