Since finishing my MiniBusa I have had it on Oregon Raceway Park 6 or 7 times, Portland International Raceway once, and Thunderhill Raceway once. Like any new projects I have had several "Bugs" come up to be corrected but now the car is running great and what I would call very dependable. My last two track days at PIR and Thunderhill I ran all day with out a glitch.
So now I am ready to fine tune the suspension and work on my driving skills. BUT!
ORP is finished for the winter, and all other close tracks are out of the question because of snow on the mountain passes. So I guess I'm just stuck with nothing but a polishing rag for the winter.
Oh Woe is Me!

Can you guys across the pond race all year long?

Sounds like a good excuse to buy another project to build over the winter ! ;)

We do have track days going on all year round as our weather just turns cold and rainy so you can still track your car if you dont mind the wet. I believe the motorsport calendar for circuit racing has a break for the winter months but there's still rallying and other forms of motorsport happening in the winter. Maybe get yourself a Rage buggy http://www.ragemotorsport.com/ to have something to do in the winter.........

Carlos W is quite right, it does snow here sometimes, it happens that little in the south that I forgot to mention it.
