We got up and had breakfast early in the morning then left for our third excursion to the Formula 1 Race Track where I found my dream car and learned that the fastest lap was done in 1 minute 31 seconds. We also got to see a Delorean which is the car that was used in the movie Back to the Future. After lunch, we headed to the rink, had practice then came back ate dinner and had a team stretch. Curfew was set at 8:30 to give us time to focus and prep for tomorrow’s game. It's a big game because if we win we can still advance.
