Expected finishing time will be around 11:30 am- 12:00 pm

rallyx spec racing!

hugo wants to get in on the rallyx action and doesn't have a car.. so he's going to rent one for this sunday. probably a cobalt/focus or whatever they have for cheap.

then we got to thinking - maybe a bunch of guys should all rent the same cars, pile a bunch of drivers in each (3 drivers is doable) and have a spec rallyx showdown.

i don't know how we'd explain the mud when returning the cars but i'm sure we could come up with something good. haha.

rallyx sunday!

rallyx this sunday with pscc up at greigs farm in redhook ny.

about 2 hrs north of the city.. we'll be waking up early for this one.
