Thanks, Simon! Yes, I remember working on your cars in the past.

We could be a Bank of the West ad...

Stopped at one of the Vista Points on Skyline, where forkmeupscotty caught up with us just as we were leaving!



John leading the pack before we hit the 92. Despite John's constant talk of being a "slow driver", he was quite fast in the twisties. Really fun run!

forkmeupscotty and Jackie behind us

My wife manning the camera as I drove

Finally making it to TrackSpec! Jon and everyone were very friendly and the shop was beautiful! Eventually there were probably about 30 cars, including a Lambo, 2 NSXs, an R34, a few Porsches, and more Supras then I have seen since the early 90s! About 10 Lotus made it there! Overall, it was a great turn out!










Of course, one of the prettiest Lotus around was there... Terry aka t955125 with his amazing Elise and SpeedGauges (they look so clean in person!)





You can see the full album here: TrackSpec Meet Up
Wow thanks for the photos!!!!

joldsha My wife noticed that I put "right hand side" for TrackSpec, its actually left hand side, in the same building and parking lot as Critosphere.

Also this drive and event is on GGLC's webpage and therefore the number of cars are unknown. But regardless we leave at 9am sharp. Try to get gas before meeting at Starbucks. There is one gas station on the way (a 76), but I rather not wait and try to avoid as many bicyclist and slow drivers as possible. I just did this exact route 30 minutes ago. It took me 1.5 hrs. See you all tomorrow.

:-).

Wubot lol. In my dreams. Still no clam! Still chugging along in my first car, the Mazda Protege 5. I miss my car. The Elise is more fuel efficient!

HA. Yup, I've heard the lore and read most of your blog... Still gotta get out to 33 and Cerro Noroeste one of the days. I make the drive down to SoCal basically once a month now (sometimes more), I'll just have to set aside some time and actually take the Lotus. Will definitely check out Pescadero soon.
