Back on track at Sebring

After a long hiatus, I got back to the track this weekend. I co-drove with my buddy Mark in his '91 VW GTi at a Chin Motorsports track event at Sebring International Raceway. Compared to the absurdly fast cars that have become typical at these track events, our GTi was slow as molasses, but it was still a hoot to drive. Our day ended a bit early when the oil pressure sensor fitting sprung a leak and spewed oil all over the front of the engine and the right front tire, but disaster was averted and we didn't have an engine fire or a wreck. We don't think the engine was damaged so it should be a $5 repair.
