We're definitely going to sell out, I know of at least 5-6 drivers that are coming that I haven't put on the list. We should have 4-5 more Cup class racers, 1 Exige V6, a few more 2-11's...

This race weekend will be HUGE!

Have you driven it yet? Thunder hill would be a great track to try it at.

14 production cars in a race is going to be epic - hope there's more.

Yes, I've driven it... it's around 3 seconds a lap faster than before; subject to a little more suspension tweaking.


A 1:29.xxx would be epic... but I'm shooting for 1:30.xxx

Nice, I saw a couple of your lines changed. I miss SMMR, new curbing in busstop

Lotus Cup USA isn't the same without you and Robbie is doing an amazing job Come to Thunderhill,you need practice there for the 25hr race.

Yes Robbie, we need Kevin and Duane back, 17 production cars at Laguna. I might need to talk to Rob B about his 211 rental.

Speaking of the 25 Hours of Thunderhill -- for those who missed the NBC airing of “Survive the 25”, the documentary presented by Mazda and Hankook Tire chronicling four teams that competed in the 2012 event, you can catch it here:

Great production. You might recognize some of the players on the four teams they followed throughout the race .... quite an intensive experience to say the least.

Brent said he's offering up his "311" .... a normally aspirated, sequential tranny, uber-lightweight version of a 2-Eleven that he's building ..... for use in the race. We just have to pony up our buy-in, right Brent?
