Yep,been running in our series as a standalone spec class for a few yrs now.

As someone who spent pretty much his entire life in Florida, ice racing is on my bucket list.

I know Huntsville, my grandparents had a cottage on 3 Mile Lake, my dad worked at Windermere House as a kid and my mom's brothers and sisters have about 8 cottages on an island in Lake Cecebe, near Magentewan. The Minden cottage belongs to my cousins. I get up to our Cecebe cottage at least once a year if I can, but usually when there's no ice :)We drive through Huntsville on every trip.

Maybe I'll suggest the extended family buy this fleet so we can get to the island more easily in the winter. I'm sure the ice fishers won't mind.

Nice,I've done nothing but build custom cottages on various muskoka lakes since the late 80's......not up on Cecebe though :)

 So I don't have much of a tie to you other then Miatas and having 2 of your books :)

I have the same issue with ice racing that I do with snowmobiles.  It's always cold out when the equipment breaks down and needs work.

Might be a good thing I can't spare the money right now and more importantly don't have the space, or one of these would have a future as a drift car...
