2018 Speedweek Trophys arrived
« on: November 16, 2018, 03:10:28 PM »
Received a nice surprise the Speedweek trophy's for our two class records arrived yesterday. I was so busy working on the car for our 2019 adventures I totally forgot about all the winnings for setting records during Speedweek. Since these two now make five we have received looking at the previous trophy's the engine class is listed however this years trophy the engine class is missing.  Did anyone else receiving a trophy notice this ?

  Yep! Engine class is missing. Noticed it was not on Danny Thompson's trophy that he got either.
I keep going faster and faster and I don't know why. All I have to do is live and die.
