Registration is now on line for the SC region final event, to be held in Florence SC not far from I-95, mid way between Charleston and Myrtle Beach.

I'll be there in my Rosso Abarth, with just one last event to try and move up from 2nd place onto the top of the podium for 2013 in our region.

Yes , I saw that yesterday when looking if they had posted the results of your last event. I said that is interesting, Florence is a 2hrs + drive. I check home if something was plan for that day and got the OK to make this one. That will make 2 Saturday in row with an AX.
The only thing is the weather, I don’t really want to pass a full day in the rain. I will check the weather forecast and if it look good I will register a few days before the event.
At least this time we will both be able to drive the Abarth….

Great, I hope you can make it! It usually takes them a while to post the results, so maybe this week, maybe not! There was also a new Camaro in GS Novice, so I'm curious what his times were, don't know if the driver has experience or not.

Here are the times from Sunday now posted on line. There were 112 drivers total, my raw time was in 77th place (which happens to be my car number) and my PAX time was in 60th place. There were two GS cars in Novice also, and one of them was close to my time too, I think that was the Camaro.

I may have to join you on this one Robert. If I don't have anything already scheduled I will sign up. I'll PM you later. Maybe we can drive down together.

Weather forecast look good enough for me so I just registered for it.
It will be nice to meet you again, this time with the Abarth….

Great! I'm really looking forward to it, might be a little chilly, but that's OK.

I was thinking of early morning being chilly....but besides that,

I have bad news, that according to their Facebook page, the SC Region is cancelling this event due to not having enough drivers. That's the only thing they just put out, that is too bad.

I just check on the club site and the event is not showing anymore and in the registration page it is now mark: Registration Suspended.
I got in just before they close it, it look like.
Look like the stars alignment was not on our side again to meet with our Abarth.
We might have more success next year.

edit: Just received an e-mail that the event is cancel, I now got a credit for future event, so I will try to make one next year.
