THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

Ladies and Gents, as I type this I must attempt to hold back my heart palpitations from interfering with my typings...news has arrived from Jay Lamm, the almighty LeMons head honcho himself, that a miracle has occured. An email today unveiled plans to run a LeMons race at the legendary Road America race course, in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin. This is the Holy Grail of American auto racing folks, and in response to this news we have decided to focus soley on this one event. It falls on Monday and Tuesday, August 20-21
Why Monday and Tuesday, you ask? That brings me to the clever part. We wont just be running one of the greatest courses in America, but will be piggybacking on the ALMS weekend. That means the largest teams in the worlds (save F1) will be running a four hour enduro on Saturday. These are the big boys, carbon fiber enblazened bringers of the storm that is world class international endurance racing. But their race...it will be little more than a support event for possibly the biggest LeMons race in history. Preliminary information suggests up to 250 competitors signing up. Needless to say, we have already entered, and number 22 will stay on our quarter panel. All our efforts will be going towards this glorious weekend.
Because we axed the June race, we will hopefully be replacing it with a track day or two to dial in our rear suspension, that has proven to be a handful under hard braking. Turn 5 is going to be a Lemons muncher to the max, so Team Carbeque is going all out to make sure this goes smoothly. Let us know if you want in, we will need some help! (also, if anyone has a spare SAAB 900s engine/trans, you never know when it might come in handy).
