Re: Changing SBRS Groups

The best thing Revere and I did with Raphael was to drive a car he'd been assigned and was told he had to drive after he complained it was loose. Revere and I concluded he was a wizard to keep it between the fences, and in our more-or-less intelligible English, lobbied for tightening the car up. Raphael was very appreciative and won the race, going away, as he should have done.

I finished a distant second to Raphael in a Mt. Tremblant memorial in one of my best races. To follow him from Namerow through turns 1 - 3 was nearly metaphysical. I was flat, he was somehow flatter.

Running with people better than we are steepens the learning curve which is something we all can appreciate.
