From my perspective, the racing was similar throughout the 5 races I competed in. Myself, Bob Heinz, and Zack Kropp all seemed to be on each others' heels throughout the weekend, pushing each other to improve! I ended up with a 5th, 10th, (2) 11th, and a 13th.
The MetricDevilMoto Pirelli's (including the much-lauded SC0 rear -my first time trying this compound) stuck like glue, which means I "Must poosh haader" to get the most out of them, the Maher Motorsports engine never missed a beat, and my new Hazardous Racing hybrid suit kept me safe and as cool as possible, while looking like a million bucks!
Monday following the weekend was a phenomenal track day with EvolveGT, which not only ran VERY cleanly despite the heat, but also gave me a little time to learn some tips from fellow racer Joe, and give back to the sport I love so much doing some coaching in the Intermediate groups!
Thanks to my nutrition coach, Teresa of Get Fit with Coach Teresa, for the continued advice (Best wishes for a speedy recovery!) which allow me to battle to the end, Nicole (& Katharine with the emergency dinner) for keeping me fed, Andy & Mike F. for coming down to help & support us, and all the CCS staff for putting on such a great weekend!
So why did I title this "Mixed Feelings"? Well, I didn't hit my lap time goal this past weekend like I had expected to. However, I did lower my overall average times, and felt calmer while doing so, and was generally pleased with how I raced, but there's certainly room for improvement next time!
I couldn't do this without the support of all of my sponsors, thank you all for the support!
