We raced our Firefly Prototype (SCCA P2) at the Grattan Majors race a couple of weeks ago, on the west side of Michigan, taking a 2nd and a 3rd place (to the top two drivers in the country). While we won't be competing at the National Championship Runoffs this fall, sadly, this puts us in excellent shape for next year's racing; all is running well, and we're no longer so far off in pace.
We also had some pretty good racing against the 2nd-ranked driver, leading to some good video... here's Saturday's race, where we were able to take second with a last-lap pass:
...and here's Sunday's race, where we were again fighting for 2nd, but got over-excited, went off, stuffed the radiator full of hay and overheated the motor:
