    For you all aero screen people. How many are switching to windshields/doors? I'm expecting it to be quite brisk.

    I'm still aero in NY but mornings and evenings get very cold very quick.

    You'll be fine with the aeroscreen. With your helmet and long sleeve tee/sweatshirt you won't have any problem on track.

    Now if you're driving your car down to NJMP- that's another story.

    I'll have mine on.

    It should be ok. Mornings will be chilly - may be in the 40s but warm gear will be enough. Day temps will warm up into the 50s and 60s. Should be plenty of sun.

    Stay with aeroscreen. My trick is to use a windproof jacket over a fleece + tshirt and this stops 100+mph breezes. Gloves are often a good idea.

    Dinners is where you will need the warm gear. Still trying to iron out details of staying safe (so eating outside) and staying warm.

    Wow, Croc must be serious about that diet. No mention of personal antifreeze. Watch out, if he's lost ballast, he'll be faster than ever.

    You should know Panamericano (are you named after a Starbucks frou frou ladies coffee?), I now spend my evenings looking at my feet. Have not seen them in such a long time now that my stomach has receded several miles. Such a novelty.

    I guess I need to stop kicking heads, asses, HR flunkies, small furry animals, clutch pedals.....




    Now to focus on pulling the engine to replace my Caterham clutch that decided to unfortunately fail two weeks back. Could have picked a better time.

    OMG. Help, Admin, take down that post. What if an innocent person walked by and saw that! Maybe we should ask Facebook or Google for guidance on content rules.

    Croc. That pic is not going to be very helpful in encouraging participation in the 7s event.

    I've tried to refrain from comment ( and trust me-since I look at feet all day- I could certainly make some) Suffice it to say that I see worse looking feet daily.

    Looks like it's a good thing I'm coming . SOMEBODY needs a curbside consult

    I don't know what the problem is? I have always subscribed to the rule, "nice feet pity about the face"


    Jim - Do you do pedicures or are you a mortician?
