OK, so almost more like a week after - but I took 2 days to drive home after the race and now I'm back at work catching up on all the mess I missed. So, it definitely feels like a morning after right now and man is my arse sore.... :D

First off - thanks to all the lads who came over and for the Turn 10 regulars who, as always, were outstanding in their hospitality. This year's race was my favorite Sebring yet (I haven't done too many so far, but you have to start somewhere) and easily one of the best races of my life. Like most things, sharing the experience with some really great people made it really meaningful and rewarding. Cheers! :)

Second, I'm sorry that so many others couldn't make it due to hard times. I almost didn't make it, but fortunately some good things fell my way in recent months and I was able to make it. I really hope things work out for you and can't wait to see you back ASAP. It wasn't the same without you! :(

Many good things happened this time around. While car counts were a bit low, the quality of the racing wasn't and it made for an exciting race. I was amazed that the Audis and [s]filthy fooking French[/s] Peugeots kept in touch with each other as they swapped the lead throughout the race. It was a bit exciting towards the end, and as a proud TDI owner I couldn't have been happier with the result. The sights and sounds at 10 were simply breathtaking, as were those at 11 - especially at night, as they darted out of 10 at full throttle, zipped past the station, and sliced through the track up to 13. The dancing taillights of McNish working through traffic were especially entertaining. At several points during the race I took my radio off my head to listen to the music around me - a masterpiece beyond compare. I can't remember the last time I grinned so much in one day.

While off duty, I got to enjoy a little bit more of the Turn 10 Experience. I became on honorary Scotsman, even though I couldn't remember all of the Spicy McHaggis Jig. I had a few run-ins with one particular drunkard who continually felt the need to assert that he wasn't gay. And, at a few times throughout the week, I was pinched, grabbed, spanked, nibbled on, and otherwise abused by a number of different lasses (if I could remember which ones did what, it would make the memory that much better). I was blessed by the Drunk Monks, and I in turn got to bless a circumcision. I learned a new drinking song (and will never view Yogi the same again) and tried lemon drops for the first time. I got to meet the Corvette crew chief and party in the Patron tent with a few Highcroft boys and Skip Barber [s]douchebags[/s] drivers. I also learned what it means to be the honorable one when I chose to forgo some partying to walk my passed-out German friend to his campsite (I had no idea where it was and had to rely on his memory - in the dark). I had a full week! :P

I hope everyone else had a great time. Once again, thanks to you all - especially to John, Lee, Lou, Randy, & Norm. For those that couldn't make it, you were dearly missed - especially Paddy & knetter. Come back soon!

I had so much fun and had such an easy time driving that I'm now seriously considering driving down to Petit Le Mans in Sept. Should be able to do it in 15 hours. I hope to see some of you there!

Excellent! For those not aware, I actually brought a cooler-full of my own beer this year. If I end up going to Petit, I'll be sure to bring some more of my hometown brewery's beer to share - you'll be able to choose between some of their nice ales and lagers, or their cheap piss... 8)

thanks!

to be honest, when you start with a couple of the nice ales, you won't taste the cheap piss anymore
