We stayed just over the river in Ohio, wife has connections with a hotel chain for some serious discounts. We took advantage of the combo package and I got an additional Veteran's discount.

My favorite parts of the ark were how they had a ramp between the levels which would have to be a given, how they had a giant door to the outside with a ramp going up to it. Also, they have a scale model that's a must see. The clever automatic food and water dispensers and last but not least, pay particular attention to the entrance where they have a cutaway of the clever design of the hull.

X5 made it to Florida no problem. AC was struggling just a bit at 95F to keep up. I see a AC service coming soon.

Got to the Florida state line on I95 and had to go through the welcome center for COVID-19 screening. Really not a lot to it but everyone has to go through. They asked us where we were coming from and waved us through when we told them we were from North Carolina. I should have taken a video but was a little nervous about the process.

Are you a taking X to WI? I have the gear for AC if you think it'll last. Also: laws of physics make colder air on lower speed so often you'll be more comfortable at a higher temp setting that the machine can keep up with.

Indeed we are bringing the X to Wisconsin. Not sure how much time I will have once we get to Road America but I might take you up on that. The AC blows really cold up to 90F ambient temperatures but then just a little lazy over those temps. Something is just not right.

Does It fare better with recirculation air?

Couple of pics of our Norma M30 LMP3 project this week. Has to be the smallest rear sway bar ever.

And a couple shots of our lifts. Racing today in less than 2 hours.

Finished 2nd today. Not quite enough for the win but a great day for points in the 2020 IMSA LMP3 Championship. The 2020 leader in points crashed and DNF with 0 points.

Happy team owner and driver

Nice driving OB! It was almost like someone was looking out for you - you may not have landed #1, but with the PL pulling down a dnf... well, you got to sneak up on him some

Thanks PF but I'm not the driver, just the Sparky. I run the electronic data and video systems in the car. But you are right, at the end of the day, we gained some points toward the 2020 Championship. A good day indeed.
