Yeah car is ~2800lb with no driver/no ballast/1 gallon of fuel. About 100 lbs lighter than I expected it to be. Should make things a little easier if I ever go to GTS4

I only ran one race weekend last year in the Porsche and only 3 out of 4 races on that weekend because I ran out of tire. Sucks but I should be able to burn through the rest of the rookie stuff in a couple race weekends this year.

I won't be there. I have an annual memorial day vacation that happens every year. I think the first race for me might be at Hallet.

Rocky Mountain region makes it all the way down to Hallet? Man that's a 4 hour drive from KC, I can't imagine the haul front the Denver area.
