ITR Expo 12 Part 3


Here we are with part 3 of ITR Expo 12. Today will take us from mid morning up and through the lunch hour with the parade laps. I should also probably mention for those that haven’t seen, but ITR Expo 13 has been announced. The tentative dates are Sept 9-10 at Mid-Ohio again. As always it will be open to all makes and models. Be sure to check on www.itrexpo.com for more info as it becomes available. With the talks of Expo 13, I’d just like to thank the Expo committee for putting this event on. Many people that don’t frequent the forums as often, don’t realize how much work is put into this event. The attendance numbers have been on the decline for a long time, but they still trug on to bring us a great event, which is in fact, my favorite event every year. They also go out of their way to help me provide the best possible coverage for Honda Tuning and everyone else. Expo will always be a special event to me, as it is for many others. Expo brought to me the experience (and resulting addiction) to tracking and learning to drive at the limit, but also the friendships. I’ve made so many great friends through this community as we all have and it is truly wonderful. Anyway, on to what you guys wanna see…

One of the problems with forums and social media is it’s hard to keep up with whose who sometimes and it becomes hard to associate user names with real names for people you haven’t met in real life. This EG is really clean and I’ve always liked it, but I have no idea who owns it. Or I could know who owns it and I just don’t know it. See what I mean?

I was correct in yesterday’s post, this is indeed a LeMons CRX. Three different people were out driving it I was informed, so no idea whose passing or getting passed by Ashley here.
