We made it to Barber Motorsports Park last night and got our Miata teched for the 'Shin Country Classic with the 24 Hours of LeMons. We were placed in Class A with zero penalty laps. Anyone care to guess where we'll finish?

No predictions from me other than I predict you'll have a blast. Post updates as you are able.

Keep an eye out for Curmudgeon. He'll be the bald guy with a light bulb in his mouth.

After the morning session they were 5th. Race should be over, we should be getting an update.

Team GRM finished 11th, after spending most of the day a couple tenths off 5th, thanks to a "catastrophic brake failure"

Edit: just heard from the guys, and apparently a caliper welded itself to the rotor. They got it fixed in 10 minutes and got back out on track in time to move up one position and finish 10th. A good weekend, and shows what you can do with an honest LeMons car. Sounds like they had a lot of fun.

They drove a good race and had a great finish. They blew by me...several times. But hey...I was driving a 32 year old pick up that lost oil pressure every time we turned right. Damn shame it wasn't a NASCAR race, we'd have won!

Well done, GRM!!

Y'all only blew by me three times. Good driving! I was in the Terminally Confused Civic, that was the yellow one with the big bee's butt welded to the roof.

Heh, who knew? We were probably hanging out together for a while. I was in the '83 Datsun/Nissan 720 pickup.

Cool! I'm watching my in car and see the truck as I type this.

Dangit, as usual I didn't get to meet any other GRM'ers face to face.
