1st time on Track w RX8 LimeRock CT

Been going to LimeRock for a long time, but this was my first track event with my RX8. Car had been sitting outside for ~3 yrs so lot needed to be done to get it track worthy. Great news the former owner was there so showed me how to drive it. I am very please and no major issues. The power steering failed on the 1st run, so my arms got a work out. Need to figure out why that happened. Hmmm. An ideas ? Fuses looked good. Need to do some research. Rain on the last day, but got some good dry seat time before that.

I'd start here and then read the rest of the thread if you still have issues after replacing the harness
