    First of all I would like to sincerely thank WERA for putting on such a great event. The weather was great, the racing was awesome, and the addition of the best announcer in the Midwest just added a cherry to the top of this already nearly perfect weekend.

    I've done track days for years, and I spent last year racing with the MCRA out of St. Louis. I have attended several WERA events in the past, and it has always been my goal to race with WERA. This year, I have finally found myself able to put together a good program to do just that.

    My first WERA event, with the exception of a couple of small mistakes, went exactly as planned, and I was happy to bring home some hardware from the BSS and CSB classes. For the rest of the story, please click here for my race report posted on my website. I look forward to meeting more of you in the future, and racing more with WERA.

    Glad you and Ernie had fun! WERA is wee bit more intense than MCRA :D

    Are you planning on making the Mid-Ohio event in July?

    It is definitely more intense... after my brake issues my first race, I was freaking out trying to get it ready for the next race, then missed the sighting lap of the next race... but luckily made it out on the 3 board and still got to race... WERA doesn't mess around with their schedule.

    We are definitely going to Mid-Ohio. We talked about maybe taking that weekend off to see the AMA races, then do a track day on Tuesday and race on Wed/Thurs. You planning on going?

    Maybe just the vintage stuff on the SV. Not enough vacation time to enjoy the whole week which is a bummer. At least the drive isn't a killer.
