ITR? Are you talking about Radial Sedan? How is that class doing? Seems rather interesting to me.

I think it was a typo. ITE as the Cal Club web site has listed for group 6.

I hope you don't mind that I took the initiative in making sure they were posted.
take a look atthe first lap video also. (It appears) That same car hit the red pro7 as well. Then there are these:

Agreed. :bash_1_: is about right. I'm running with them for the double regional in September, hopefully I come out alive! :119:

Are you guys going to fix the Pinto?
