    Still, it was a damn good day. Blew out some cobwebs and cheered me up no end. Mechanical destruction does that to men for some reason.

    So,, how was the seat? Did the big toe fit in your racing slippers?

    The resin bead seat was excellent. Kept me very secure and comfortable.

    Toe is bleeding again. I think I bashed it on a snap down change. Oops.

    Emerging from covid19, we all need to remember to eat more healthy. Salads! My daughter made this great salad with bacon:

    Just came back from 2 days at VIR with the Chin group. VIR is a great track, not very 7 friendly, a 3/4mile back straight does not help. But there are some very tricky technical areas. The Chin group run a very well organized event, lots of high end cars, more GT3RS's that you could count, a couple of race teams were using it as a practice day, so the expert group was crazy fast. Randy Probst was there with a old ex-factory Volvo 740, it was fun to watch him mussel it around. A Pikes Peak Tesla was testing it was crazy fast. Most of my winter upgrade appeared to work, cage, the new fuel tank setup, new belts, Garmin GLO GPS, the cell phone mount will be good after I Locktite the bolt The only issue was the new cooling setup led to a slow upwards water temp during a session, I was having to soft peddle the last lap or 2.

    Tried to upload a couple of pictures but uploads failed.

    Sun screen is your friend. Normally this time of year we would all have a natural tan, well I have sun burn on the back of my hands from just driving, so beware.
