    The local Mustang club ended renting English Mountain no prep raceway. Had a good time . The track was greasy and only got worse as the day went on . My first pass was my best at 8.3 , 3 tenths slower than normal , but the humidity was horrible. Ended up making 6 passes and winning all my races.
    Best race was against a fbo 2017 manual with 2018 intake . I beat him by a fender . So far this a10 is 16-1 against other cars on a hard tire. Crazy what this thing will 60 ft on a prepped track on 235 tires.
    Also weighed the car in just to see how portly the base model is.

    How much does a track charge for a no prep rental? I personally wouldn't bother going unless it was prepped. Or I could win money at a no prep event. But to each their own. Glad you had fun.

    They usually charge $ 20 but the track rental was $ 25 per person .Usually they at least mop it clean but they didn't do anything this time. The best thing about this track is if is above 40 degrees there open up on Saturdays. So everyone tries to get there combo's dialed in till the prepped tracks open up.
