Road to Lincoln 2013

Ha-ha I started this years thread! (Too soon?)

I know the offseason is still months away but it's never too soon to lay out commitments. Surely everyone who went this year is already planning next year.

I missed this year but am committing to attending in 2013.
My goal is to be field filler in Dmod in the MG. I still have (Quite) a bit of work to do on the car over winter and as soon as the garage is done that work will begin.

I would definitely consider taking on a co-driver (First dibs to people who have helped on the Car/garage). Id like to pick up some steamroller slicks for the car sometime next summer in preparation for nationals. Im not planning to or expecting to be competitive but I want to go, have fun, and get some more nationals experience and see how the car shakes out.

What are you plans? I know this is 1 month earlier than the 2011 thread and 2 months earlier than 2012 but oh well.

Don't have any plans yet. Need to see how the daddy thing plays out. If I get permission to go I might co-drive somebody's car or do the RTR thing with the RX8.

Probably going back for some more punishment in RTA. If so, some equipment shortcomings will be addressed (6-year old stock struts replaced with something worthy, 235 or 245 tires instead of 215s, an exhaust that actually registers higher on the db-meter than a Tesla).

It's looking like I'll campaign the Mazda3 in RTF again next year on Tour and also at Nats. I never got a run in last week where I crossed the finish and said to myself, "hell yeah I really nailed that run." I think a top 3 finish was definitely achievable in RTF the way the car sits. Just need to drive it better

i'll hopefully be a P1 in the SIUE school of pharmacy during nationals...which means i won't be able to go i'd love to snag a codrive in a competative car...like Justin Barbry's FSP Protege (very very similar car to mine, but with a lot more prep). but i don't think nationals is in the cards for 4 more years. not that i'd do any better than DFL, anyway.
