June Bug Classic

Had a great time at the June Bug Classic yesterday. The weather was awesome and the drag races were great. My only two complaints about the show (and they really don't have anything to do with the show organizers or anything) is that the turnout for water cooled vehicles seems a little low especially for MK1 and MK2 cars and the vendors seem to cater a little too much towards air cooled. I don't know if these two issues are because the water cooled group isn't as notified, if the venue is too far away (frankly I think it's a perfect venue), or if the show was just originally catering towards air cooled that it has stayed that way. They are very minor things that aren't in need of fixing, more of an observation.

I was definitely glad they split the Scirocco and Corrado into two classes though. I see a lot of shows where those two cars are placed in the same class and I really don't think they should be since a) the Corrado is almost 10 years newer than the newest Scirocco, b) they are not even built on the same platform, and c) would never have the same engines (not counting engine swaps). I did manage to nab a 2nd place prize in my class. I was definitely out beat by the MK1 that won first. That car was nice. Be

Here's a pic from the bleachers of the show field. I took it late so there are some gaps where cars and vendors were:
