I'll be flying home on the 17th, but when go, I usually get there around 7am and stay until around 10am. Just show up and park. Have a great time. I wish I could've joined you this month!

I've been to their facebook page, but it doesn't say if it is the third saturday of each month, etc...or is it just whenever they decide to have it?


I've done Irvine Cars and Coffee probably one meeeeelion times so I'm used to the scene, but just looking for the skinny. Does the lot fill up quick? gracias



and I just realized the subject says dupoint

By 7:15 the lots are pretty full. It used to be more fun when most of the participants did burnouts when they left the site. That ended when someone attepting a burnout spun into a ditch. From that point on we have had adult supervision in the form of the Pinellas Sheriff Department.

hopefully I'll run into some other Lotus guys. It's been 2 months since I've been to an event (irvine and then a stop at dallas cars and coffee) so I'm looking forward to it.

Then f1 qualifying when I get home!
