Horsepower Hill - Laguna Seca with video

What a difference between Sonoma and Monterey!

Qualified on the pole (barely) on Saturday and finished first overall on Sunday. There was stout competition - like the Sonoma race: 18 in my class (SP) and another 6 in comparable GT1 and GTA classes - total of 43 in the race group. There were lots of late model strock cars, Porsches and tube frame Vipers.

It was the best finish I've had. I'll post a video sometime in the next few weeks.
