I'm confused.

Driverreg.. points to an Equipe Rapide event.

I found a PCA event at Zepherhills on the 23rd

Premature response. I found the event on Sunday. We will be there. Judith is looking forward to beating someone in an Elise .

Wow, an Autox event on Easter. I wish I had known a little sooner. I made plans to visit family in Tampa. I'm all signed up for the ER event April 23rd.


So Dave has an Elise??

Good move! I'm sure you love it.

No kidding about "you only live once" People dropping like flies around here.

Life is short short short.

Good color choice. Did you get limited slip???

x-class is for non-porsches, if you register early no problem, but last second all the x-class slots may be filled up.

Pretty good event as never much above 50 or so cars

Just got a email that my SSR's and Hoosiers shipped. (only wnet 225 in rear)

ER debut is 4/23------

I think for ER I might stay in ASP, as I can take a couple of runs in the Elise and the Vette---leaning that way

Thanks, found that reading another part of their site also, but registration closed yesterday. Registered for the next equipe-rapide event at least.

It went pretty good. Brought out the vette and the elise.
Stock elise with sport, touring, hardtop---on stock tires, stock alignment
my best time 51.1----only got 4 runs as I ran my ASP vette
3 times----best time in vette 47.7 (FTD)

Also, my buddy Hector, ran the elise and vette with me.
He beat me by .3 in the elise, and I beat him by .6 in the vette.

Lotus count at the PCA event---3
1) 06 CO Lehman
2) Malcom (sp ?) Lawson, and his wife Judith
3) Mitchell Taylor

I think Mitch T's best was down in the 51's, my best was again a 51.1.
Malcom got down into the high 49's, I believe with a3so5 hoosiers.

I have my A6's coming with SSR's---will get them by Wed
Should be good to go for ER event on Sunday. And for right now I am not touching the car---stock alignment and everything.

I think Hialeah will be friendlier to the elise. Interested to see the grip difference between a048, stock, and A6, but this time I went with 225's in back.

At ER I think I am going to run ASP with Hector with both cars, as we then could swap back and forth, 2 runs in each car, is like two seperate events !
But have to street drive the elise over, as the vette gets towed.

Driving 460 hp vette vs 190 hp elise-----is a study in contrast.

Jim, I will see you and the rest of the eliser's on Sunday.

and as event master of the event----I will try to have fun runs at the end of the event, but I won't announce that at the start of the day.

Till then my fellow nuts.

Dave..Nice recap.
I'm interested in your tire results.



I wonder how many people will be a "ER" ? Pre registration may keep a few from running.
