I'll echo what Doug said; it was a great weekend hanging out and racing with you guys. I've said this before but it bears repeating - the group of guys racing rallies/Rallymoto is just a really solid bunch of interesting, talented, competitive, sportsmanlike folks and it absolutely *makes* the weekend to enjoy the experience with all of my fellow racers.

To be honest, BRS was pretty frustrating as a race in and of itself. There was relatively little racing, very short stages, and long delays. The weather didn't help, and the stage cancellations on the first day, and extensive delays on the second day made for a whole lot of standing around. Imagine how frustrating that would be with a lesser group of guys! As it was, we all enjoyed each others company in spite of the scheduling difficulties.

Out on stage, a lot of those annoyances did melt away, but I couldn't help but wonder how great it would be to minimize those wait times, and lengthen the stages out. May not be possible in that geographic location though.

I don't remember it being as frustrating in 2009, but that was my first rally, and I may have been spoiled by the long stages and clockwork organization of Rally West Virginia (although that is helped in part by several extremely long liaison sections in between racing).

I agree with the standing around, but I did enjoy the short stage format. It kept the times really close and didn't allow for any mistakes. You could lose a lot on the stages but not gain much, so you almost had to be flawless on every one. WV you could make mistakes and recover from them over the remaining 15 miles, as many of us proved haha. I loved the stages and thought they were a blast to ride, nicer weather and less delays would have made it perfect.

I just got home...

Immediately after BRS I went on a 2 week road trip for work. I got home Friday night. I'm just catching up with everyday life now.

My BMW 450 radiator got punctured at some point. It ended my rally Sunday morning after the first stage. I was very disappointed to say the least. I was having a great time with everybody. TJ's 450 fuel pump crapped out, too. So we both headed home in my van Sunday afternoon. Not what we had planned.

I did get a little video from the stages I did run. These are essentially unedited clips of the entire stage. No fancy movie making this time.
