Wilmington Delaware Grand Prix

Anyone doing this race? http://www.wilmgrandprix.com/

I grew up in Delaware so I would really like to go back there to race but this would be my first race back and it being a square course and cat 3/4 I am not sure I will last very long.

Yes I will probably be racing the 3/4 as well. It's only 20 minutes away for me but my wife will be having a baby a few days later and the nursery is not done, we're on vacation now and I've got so much to do before d-day. My wife is in panic mode.

Do it and if you get pulled you get pulled, just hang on as long as you can.

Do it and if you get pulled you get pulled, just hang on as long as you can.

Congrats in advance. Been there, done that last year in the fall.

Unsolicited advice - although your baby will have no idea whether the nursery is done, and wont know or care for years, after the baby is born, you'll not have the time to finish the nursery ... so listen to your wife and get it done before d-day. Good luck!

Thanks!

This will be our 2nd, but different house, hence the no nursery. I know I gotta get it done.
