I'll be there Robbie, got your email, thanks!

Still lots of work to do, but I'll make it.

For any new folks, please come Saturday with Proformance as well as Sunday with the Cup guys, great coaches and perfect for getting the feel of the track if you've never been there before.

This is a great opertunity to be involved in a Lotus only event, there's not many of these in our neck of the woods, and this is a great track, perfect for a Lotus!

See you all there!
Mike

Guys - We are days away from this event! If you haven't signed up yet, be sure to register with coupon code RADIUM for $100 off. You'll get the same deal as the earlybird pricing since we are low on enrollment.

Also, ProFormance has the track on Friday... If you want to make it two days up at ORP, be sure to sign up with them as well!

Here is what the e-mail from Don at proformance said
Saturday Track Schedule: (Group 2 will be the LOTUS USA Time ATTACK)
7:00 AM Registration Open (Friday drivers only) no need to sign release forms if you drove Friday
8:00 Driver’s Meeting
8:30-9:00 AM Lead Follow Orientation for new drivers to Oregon Raceway Park
9:00-9:20 AM Group 1 rotating 20 minute sessions
9:20-9:40 AM Group 2 rotating 20 minute sessions
9:40-10:00 AM Group 3 rotating in 20 minute sessions
12:30 Lunch will be provided
Groups may be combined
End time 5 PM


So it sounds like us newbs to the track get a 30 minute lead follow, thats probably better training than the 5 Youtube videos i have been studying to figure out the track :shrug:

I show 2 hours and 14 minutes drive time from I-84 Troutdale so if anybody wants to caravan out, I think John and I will be meeting there or somewhere around 5:15 AM Saturday morning for our drive to the track. Send me a PM if you want to caravan with us.

Great Day out at ORP - thanks Robbie!

After the first sessions, the weather challenged everyone - 30+ mins of heavy torrential rain, hail, lightning, wind - the works. After it let up, the day was great. With help from the local Fire Department and a chill approach to the day. I think everyone had a blast.

We had a small group of cars take part of in the Time Attack and here's a video of three laps. I was pleased that I was able to post consistent 2:06 laps. When I get back out to ORP - that will be my benchmark for improvement.

Here are a few of my videos from the weekend, i was pulling down 2:09 laps with my almost stock Elise and may have got into the 2:08 range at the end of the day but I didn't have a lap timer. These videos were from earlier in the day(before running out of gopro batteries while still learning the track)


I let Steve borrow my GoPro to get some video of me and so he could get some in cockpit video
