      Team Tiger made the 3 hour trip to Mid Ohio 3 months after the crash at Gingerman and had 3 class wins and the overall win on Sunday. The car ran flawless! On Sunday we ran the "pro course" which does not run the chicane into the key hole and we lowered the GT2 track record by a second.

      Mark your calendars as the SCCA Runoffs returns to Mid Ohio 9/19-9/25.

      Below is the video from the Saturday race. Qualifying was in the morning and the temperature had dropped into the lower 40’s so the track was not friendly to our slicks. As a result we started back in the field in 14th. This was a "Divisional" Race which is usually more laid back but with the Runoffs coming in 2016 their were drivers coming from all over to get track time on the course. We were there just to shake the car down and stay out of trouble as we had only raced with a handful of these drivers before and did not know their capabilities nor they were aware of ours. When you watch the video you will see not all had the same plan of staying out of trouble. Yes the Yellow 944 missing the LF suspension is multi GT2 National Champion Finch who was collected in one such incident.
