I'd assume Jeff Secor with Mark and Bill Montgomery with Mike, but ... until we hear something official, it's probably wisest to leave ? in place.

Don't know yet if I'll be there.... Leon's not going and another driver I've been talking with isn't too sure about the car being done in time.

Jeff and I will be together again. Anyone else and the car might tip over onto my side waiting for an ATC!

The reason it isn't posted is we just sent in the entry form and I would guess all they have received so far is my PayPal payment which doesn't reference any entry information.

I'm not sure if his heart rate has recovered enough for another ride just yet.

At CFR, I was in car 00. The local Subaru dealer sent a WRX, a tech and a lot guy for the rally to use as 00. The tech wanted nothing to do with the combination of the WRX, those roads and me. The lot guy, however was a different story, he was all in. To shorten the story, on one of the later stages (a rerun of a previous stage), I gave the lot guy a 70 to 80% rally speed run down a stage. I don't think he inhaled for the length of the stage. As it was a rerun of the stage, I felt we could do our job as 00 and run a safely accelerated pace. I can tell you this, the brake pads on that car are good and outgassed.

Bill's along for another ride in Houghton ... just hope we can find him a ride to Minneapolis Sunday morning. There was no blank in PayPal for the codriver's name ...

Makes you wonder... no cars listed for the above. Higgins and O'Sullivan are not entered (yet?). Buffum's been working for Mitsubishi this year and Paul only ran two events in the no longer factory-backed Hyundai, but would be a free-agent. Anybody know if they are in the Tiburons or in Evo 8's? Just purely speculating here... Morgan? Toni?

>Mark Nelson/Ronan Burke

Anybody know which car? Ronan's co-driven with Seamus this season and Seamus isn't entered in his Evo 6.5. Mark ran with TAD last year in an Evo 6, but this year ran with AV Sport in an Open Class Subaru WRX, Tato Motorsports in a Group N Evo 6, and the Team Dynamics Group N Subaru WRX. This could REALLY throw a wrench into the final Group N battle if he's entered in either of the last two options.

P.S. Only 28 cars as of October 1. Dang.....! :'(

The Mitsu entries are usually later than the other big teams. Hopefully Buffum is going out just to have some fun since the Tibby's have held up well this year. Maybe to make one last effort to try to get Hyundai back into rally? Hopefully so. Talking to Paul at Maine, he said he's just doing STPR and Maine, so this apparently was a recent decision to do LSPR.

Maybe Seamus used up his entire tire budget at Maine?

There'll be more! The posting of entries this year on event sites has been pokey at best.

Bruce runs PGT in a bright orange Mitsu Eclipse, car #60. He's currently second nationally in PGT, down by 2 pts.

Greg,

Greg, hope you're not a co-driver! :p You missed counting down to the corner by one! The reference was to Buffum.

Oops. I just realized my mistake. Ronan Burke ran with John Drislane in an Evo 6 this year. Sorry.

Actually Ronan's been co-driving with John Drislane the past couple of seasons in another TAD Open Class EVO 6. Seamus will be entering LSPR with Charlie Bradley co-driving. Charlie's been co-driving with me all last season (exc. Laughlin) and all but one event this year. Ronan and I will be running the Team Dynamics Prodrive grN Subaru WRX at LSPR...I'll try to behave on this event! :+

cheers,
