12 Jul Superweek — Homewood 2011

Homewood is a really fun course, it reminds me of the original Bensenville Superweek track, same width turns the only real difference is the finish line is a long way from the last corner. Enzo's has good representation with 5 guys racing today; our plan is to hurt ourselves which should...
