Great weekend with Lotus Cup USA at Buttonwillow. A little toasty on the weather front but otherwise a lot of fun. A big THANK YOU to Robbie and all the great sponsors. :clap:


Also, a huge THANK YOU to Brent Bauman :bow::bow:, who got a new fuel pump installed in my car Saturday morning (which by the way requires that you drop the fuel tank), just in time for me to make quali at noon -- no practice sessions, but we were able to achieve some good results …. another trophy ;) …. 2nd in class, 3rd overall.

But, the most important result of the weekend for me -- I was able to beat my previous best lap time for Buttonwillow 13CW by 2.1 seconds, getting down to 1:52.7. I'm a very happy camper! :coolnana:

Now, for some obligatory photos, all action shots courtesy of PLS Photography ….. :shift:
