Hmmm. Central California coast event with a track day. I wonder where this could be. I wasn't planning on another CA trip so soon but I'll have to seriously consider it.

Sweet! Right in my neck of the woods. Assuming the trackday is at LS, is there a chance to do it on a 103 decibel day, rather than 90? Not sure if that is even possible, but I think the 90db limit would black flag most of the guys running aftermarket exhaust on their Lotus; Elige especially.

I would think the track day would be at Buttonwillow. That is where we held it last time we had a WCLM at the central coast. Quick scenic drive to the coast from BW.

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.

Gad!!! Has it been that long!??! I guess so... crap, I'm getting old!

So, yes on Buttonwillow for WCLM Track Day on Sep 21 (Thurs) and then a nice 2-3 hr scenic drive to the coast. The last couple of BW events the GGLC has done we used layout #1 or #13 and split the day going one direction in the AM and the opposite in the PM. Typically that means at least 3 half hour sessions in each direction. Folks have enjoyed this format, it's like getting two events for the price of one! Not saying we'll do that for the WCLM Day, but it's highly likely.

Cheers,
Kiyoshi

I recall that WCLM at Morro Bay... the track day at BW was so freaking hot and my Elise had the AC of a old British dude with asthma blowing through a straw. By the afternoon I was so burnt and tired... just driving toward the coast was an experience. As we dipped down and the temps dropped 20 degrees and the canyon roads were covered in a green canopy... glorious!

And speaking of which... one of my all time favorite driving memories. The next morning a group of us got up early to blast up Highway 1 through Big Sur. Started out cool and foggy, but as we passed north of San Simeon, the fog lifted and we had wonderful clear skies and cool temps. Top off, tunes turned up. Morgan behind me in his Elan with the vacuum activated headlights. Great group of people. No traffic. One of my best drives.

By the way, the goal is bring the new Origin car to the event. Making plans!

Have some bulls-eyes made for the side mirrors (removable, stretchable) for all the entrants. Have them placed on both side mirrors. If the bugs are out, the guy who gets a bulls-eye at the event wins a "special" prize... it also helps with bug problem...
