Just wanted to say that if you have rain tires, bring 'em.

I've been watching the forcasts this week and the chances have been fluctuating.

"the good news report (according to my trick knee and pet cricket). it is currently blizzard conditions here in monument (just north of the academy). it will continue in this fashion through the evening and tomorrow. this will be the only storm to blow through leaving us a sunny friday and weekend."

a repeat from the last pueblo event. :)

Yeah, my new race wheel/tire combo won't be here by this event anyway... I'll have some tires that will be okay in mild rain.

The "r" word that shouldn't be used is the one associated with a certian flag.

Remember there will be Racing at Pueblo just not in the HPDE...

As for the rain BRING IT ON ! With one race group (SU all the way down to 944-spec) I'm thinking 944-Spec will just about be able to keep up in the corners with a bit of wet track !

All the better, I think that would be awesome. Bust out the poncho and duct tape.
Just imagine trying to get that thing to hook up out of those slow corners. That would be a good problem to have IMO.
Your talking about a cobra kit car right? What size motor is that guy running?

Well, the update at this time is it is raining enough to drown the prairie dogs. :D

You all should bring some bug spray as well. I'm bringing mine!

The forcast changed again for being cloudy this weekend but you know how that can quickly it can change here in CO.

Well, among other problems, my radiator has decided to make it's own rainstorm of coolant in my engine bay, so I may not be able to make it... I'm going to have to look things over tonight, see how well my attempt to patch it is really working, and make a decision... I already missed out on the possibility of doing tech before the event. :(
