Registered for my first race in the T4 RX-8




The entry is small (only 27 cars total) given that it's an early season non-points race, but I wanted to get some practice in before the US Majors season starts. This will basically be a practice session and a weekend to get comfortable running SCCA weekends as this will actually be my first SCCA Club Race ever! Right now, I will be running with 7 cars in the "Closed Wheel" race group which will be myself, STL, STU, SM, SRX7 - and a GT1 car which should be ridiculous. Hopefully a few more cars register....
