Fantastic and you mentioned it was a super tight Championship and a win would secure it for you, so it that what happened? So cool , another TMO Champion Driver to add to the mix. For newcomers on the Forum it is helpful for them to note that many of the contributors have won various racing/autocross Series around the Country. We are getting info and suggestions from those who have succeeded on courses around the US/Canada and the World, so no reason to hang out on any other Mustang Forum......imho!

It was a hard fought P2 yesterday to none other than @SMGDHG who threw down a blistering lap in his 3v Bullitt. First and second for the season championship was between @Tri-bar and I, so whoever finished higher yesterday would come out on top after a back and forth battle all year. Once the season points are published, I’ll post them here so everyone can see how the MDC handicap system works, and the full list of drivers that participated. We had a total of 23 drivers in MDC2, and MDC1 had 28 — great results for the first year of the series.

Speed Ventures and series sponsor MMR decided that since 2023 was such a success, they want to take it to the next level in 2024!

They've got a great thing going with that group that I am honestly very jealous of. Hopefully they can add norcal tracks to the calendar. I'm curious to see how the payout structure works out; it could make it a worthwhile endeavor along with NASA for me in 2024. Keep me in the loop if you hear anything (hopefully I would be invited to compete?) or get any updates.

Great running with you and @Tri-bar as always and thanks for the shoutout!

I knew that would get your attention! Should have the schedule out soon - 8 races, 6 count so there’s some flexibility. I believe Sonoma and Spring Mountain in Vegas will be 2 of the 8. I’ll post up more details as they drop.

@5.2 liters of democracy knows who im talking about and he would never come to this forum
There is always somebody faster....claiming that they are the fastest is a dangerous statement, but whatever.
As I've often said; "If you're really that fast, everyone already knows you're that fast, and if you aren't, then shut the hell up."
