Mike, I just can't get over how many passes you're able to make on the outside. The handling must be well sorted on your car. Congrats.
P.S. Colin Chapman would say you put to MUCH fuel in your tank :D

Went on a short 40ish mile cruise. Somewhat spirited group, but we managed to keep up with most of them.. Troy Ermish and Wayne Brewer are just too fast..lol

3rd overall, 1st in class..

This car is just too much fun..

Edit: oh yeah, someone remind me to put some gas in the car next time..
Looks like you hit 135 a couple of times!

Haha.. I was topping out at 121 mph.. Too windy to try to go flat through turn 9. Average speed for the fast laps was 93mph..

There is definately more in it, but without starting in the top three, there was no chance of catching the other 2. Once i realized i was not gaining on them and they were a quarter lap in front of me, it was time to go to safe mode..

So cool to see this car rippin it up Mike! Sounds like it's really dialed in, and I echo those outside passes. My hands started sweating and I'm not even driving!

Great drive today with the 66 KA roadster. Sunny and warm. 240 miles.
North from Bellevue along the Cascade foothills. Snohomish, Granite Falls, Arlington, Sedro Woolley to Alger.
Then to the west and south to Edison, Bay View, Stanwood, Smokey Point and back on the Freeway.
Great clouds over the Cascades and some Daffodils in the Skagit Valley

Friday night's snow melted on Saturday so I decided to go out for a Sunday drive.
The photo was taken on Hwy 93 in between Boulder and Golden.

Took a couple of different short rides, ended up at a favorite place - Medaloni Cellars Winery.
Sister in law LOVES the roadster so she did some driving and enjoyed ear to ear grins!
