We enjoyed seeing everyone at Road America last weekend. The only problems we had were weather related: 90+ temperature and humidity as we were setting up on Friday (we had to ship your Marmon Wasps
, Lola T332s
and McLaren books
before we could leave for RA) and the usual torrential rain as we were trying to pack up Sunday afternoon. In the middle was nothing but beautiful skies, moderate temperatures, great race cars, brats, eggers and a beer or two!
We'll be back up there for the big ALMS / Grand Am Weekend
in 2 weeks (August 8-11). Look for our tent in the Paddock.
The final release in Spark's 1/43 scale 2012 LeMans Collection, the Nissan DeltaWing fielded by Highcroft Racing, is scheduled to arrive here at The Motorsport Collector early next week. It is still possible to reserve one, but our stock will probably be gone before we leave for Elkhart Lake.
