So much has happened since my last update with so much ahead of us as well. Retrospectively, and in net, Dave Brown piloted the Life’s Good Racing!TM BMW M3 to a second place at Laguna Seca and is now tied for first in the 2013 season championship points! John Klusendorf drove an aggressive race in the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart, placing 5th at Laguna Seca and moving into 5th in season points within striking distance of 4th. I drove the 2012 Camaro for the first time in the GT class, taking a 5th place and positioning me in 5th in the season points standing. Life’s Good Racing!TM team is showing very strongly in the USTCC professional racing series.
But, the big news is next weekend’s race at Sonoma Raceway, which promises to be our largest, and most significant event of the 2013 season as USTCC will be running during the FIA/IMSA sanctioned all-pro weekend that will include the one and only annual visit by WTCC, World Touring Car Championships in addition to Porsche GT3 Cup, Yokohama Formula Drift and Time Attack.
The entire weekend’s schedule along with more details on the event can be found at this link to the Sonoma Raceway website. And, following is the USTCC specific schedule of on-track activity:
Fri. 9.00-10.15 Practice 1

The entire Life’s Good Racing!TM team has been working around the clock in preparation for this major event as we are looking to have a very strong showing during this significant event. With the help of all of our sponsors we will be well prepared to show up at Sonoma Raceway Thursday morning of this week to begin setting up for the weekend’s races which start on Friday. Come by and see us, see our cars and meet the team. We will have all three USTCC Touring and GT class cars, including the E46 M3, Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart and 2012 GT Camaro.
Some of our sponsors will be in attendance. Come out and meet them. I’d like to thank each for their help in getting us to where we are currently in the season, including HAWK Performance, Competition Clutch, WORKS Motorsports, San Rafael Mitsubishi, Big O Dublin, Supertech, Red Line and AIP.
See you THIS WEEKEND!
