What everyone's up to

It was our fourth event of the season, and the forecast called for storms all day. As a result, I didn't bother with swapping on my race tires (Bridgestone RE71s) and I instead just went with my daily-driver all seasons tires (Continental DWS06s). 

I felt pretty good with that decision during my first run, as the course got hammered with pretty heavy rain:

Of course, things cleared up a bit as the day went on and the course was mostly dry by my last run, just a few puddles and slick spots to worry about:

I had forgotten how talkative my street tires are - the Bridgestones typically put up much less of a fuss!

We had a bit of rain for our third event of the year. For me, that meant a slow start:

We then had to take a break for the storm to pass (lightning hazard), and the course started to dry out a little, allowing me to snag my quickest run of the day:

As the course dried more in subsequent runs I tried to push for a bit more speed but wound up just getting sloppy and punting a few cones:

Every day I get to race is a good day, but I didn't do particularly well this time.

I placed second behind a Civic Type R, but my time was 55.555s and I think five fives counts as a win.
