Any PR is better than none even if it's only 1/3 page of words. Misinformation included, "Rally America now operates it (Sno*Drift)". I sent them an email stating that Rally America does not "operate" any rallies. They provide sanctioning, rule set, scoring and insurance and their mis-statement does a great disservice to the many organizers and workers that put in many unpaid hours organizing rallies.

Good move...sanctioning, a rules set and erratic sporadic uselessly formatted results with zero additional info on DNFs or anomalies.

A common misconception. NRS doesn't either, although we do describe the split:

between_the_organizer_and_the_sanctioning_body_who_does_what

Grassroots rally. It's what I think about.

Haha, I'm actually not doin all toooo bad...

Right now it's pretty slow... still no toy-bo. So HP is pretty low. I'm also a pretty dainty shifter so hopefully that helps, we'll see.

I'm reasonably happy with our results when it we're working well. Obviously the tighter stages are our friends. The goal right now is to get consistent. Most of the problems have been with dealing with an old car than a gtx per se. ex: a toasted voltage regulator took out our battery at snodrift and now the solder joints in the Miata Link need some patching.
Neither a HUGE deal but annoying.

Still in the game though for the foreseeable future.
I'm hoping to put the turbo back on over the summer. Lets just say I've been squirreling away a hoard of GTX crap.

I'll have my fun until Mazda releases a new GTX and hires me as their driver numero uno. Duh.
