This weekend Friday through Sunday. I'm going. I think. New alternator should be here tomorrow and I'll be good to go.

Won't be there for first time in many years (went to ATDI 2016 instead, was going to go to Lighthouse Fall Fair but might by raining). Last I heard, Ron is planning on going with his TR7V6. Bill won't have his Sprint there as the motor is toast.

I'm still TBD. Talked to FiTech and my system needs a new ECU. They are hoping to get it tomorrow, if they can get it installed and shipped the same day, then I will have it in time to install.

Well, my new alternator came today. It is in and working. I am a go. Still need to do a bit of tidying up though. Hope your ECU shows up soon Darrell. The weather looks like it is going to be good too. Not too hot or cold and mostly dry.

Looks like the weather was about the same as here. Were the wedge pictures taken early/ Looks like not too many.

Great looking car - stands up very well against many modern/current offerings......

Just a little misty drizzle early in the day. Not enough to get completely wet. We ended up with 8 total wedges. 2 TR7s, one the had the 3.8 V6, and 6 TR8s. Turn out was odd in other classes too. There were 8 TR250s but only 3 TR4s, and they were all 4As. Two or three classes, I'm not sure which ones, had no entries at all. People's choice trophies were nice thermos things. I figured my car was about 4th out of the 6 TR8s but I walked away with the 2nd place thermos. :D

I suspect a change in the weather steered a lot of them away. We do get spoiled pretty quick with our California weather.
