OK a very long day today up at 5:30 AM on the road until 7:30 PM tonight.
We ran 10 races. All Hume cars performed well. But we won’t see final Monday standings until tomorrow AM.
The cars took a pounding however. Subframe bolts knocked loose on the 2006 MINI GP and more than a few bottoming outs on all cars.
Everyone is in good spirits thus far. And the service crew have their hands full for tonight.
Tomorrow we race 7 times covering 137 KMs and transit another 324 KMs. Weather was perfect today with the exception of a very strong wind blowing all day.

Cheers for now from the Rock
Hello from Team Hume,
A miracle – Sunny and warm all day!
We finished our four practice races today. And all four cars came through in one piece. Once again JohnJr and Justin Crant look ready to tear up the field. Ron and Justin Russell kept it shiny side up and drove clean races.
Ruth and Andrew in the MINI #1333 for first timers did exceedingly well.
And me with Christina had a good day learning how to communicate with each other. I think both GT cars had good results as did both Modern cars.
No points for today’s races but the better you did better is your starting position tomorrow – first day of real adventure
Off to update our route books with posted changes now.
We pack up in the AM and head out towards Clarenville racing 9 or 10 legs on the way there..
Hello from St John’s Newfoundland !
All Hume racing and service crew are now here!
No delays and no cancelations thus far either!
Yesterday Ruth and Andrew completed their training and are now qualified to drive and co-pilot the race.
Our cars all passed inspection with flying colors.
Team spirit is very positive and most of all the rain has finally stopped!
Yes, it has rained almost constantly since arriving Thursday. Two and a half days of wind fog rain. Enough already with that please. No more.
Tomorrow AM we have driver and co-pilot safety meeting then we do 4 practice races as a warm up for Monday when the real nitty gritty begins!
All for now.
