Took the Mini Mania-MINCOMP MINI out to Willow Springs the other weekend (Feb 27 2010) for an SCCA National race.
The weekend started out a little ruff as it poured rain all day Saturday so we opted to sit the rainy sessions out because frankly we had nothing to gain!
Sunday turn out to be an absolutely beautiful Willow Springs day! I qualified the MINCOMP MINI on the GTLite pole and won the race pretty convincingly !
Although my goal for this race was to get under my own Willow Springs track record, it just wasn't going to be! Because of the rain on Saturday the track was washed clean and was real "green" and the traction just wasn't good enough to make up that last second of so that I was missing.
Fact is the grip was so poor that while going around the long right hand T2 I was leaving 2 black tire marks (from the front tires) all the way around the turn due to the grip issue.
Next race for the Mini Mania-MINCOMP MINI is the SCCA double national at Buttonwillow April 24th!
