Ok, let's do the Sun 8/31 day.

We can do the Todd route (Marengo to Lake Geneva) with a couple of extra AWESOME roads that Khurrum shared with us.

I'm also working with the guys at Team Blackhawk to do aerial drone video. The more cars we have, the cheaper it is per car. Would be insanely cool to have (similar to the video Lotus F1) put up.

Here's the link from what they did at SCS last weekend:

SuperCar Saturdays Aerial Video - Bannockburn, IL - 2014 on Vimeo

If we can't get a great turnout, perhaps we use them for the Wisconsin Drive in September (more cars?). Downside is we'd probably have to pay for their mileage to travel.

Chime in!

Wow, not much of a turn out yet. It's starting to feel like a little family between the few of us, except I must be adopted because I'm not CO.

I'm hoping to attend. It's been awhile since I've been on a drive.

Wow, Rob - you're still alive? Be glad to have you!

I think we'll bag on the Aerial video thing. Let's save that until the 9/21 drive when we have more cars and more variety.

I'll send updates next week.

Haha, yep, Jeff. I'm still alive... Married and with a ~8 month old daughter now, so I just don't have as much Lotus time as I used to have. We may look into renting a boat or kayaks or something in Lake Geneva following the drive up there.

Ok guys - I gotta bail.

Having some issues with my supercharger and I won't have the car back by then.

Uggh. Looks like the next real one is 9/21 in Wisconsin.

Also - notice that Chicago Rally is doing their Lake Geneva rally on 9/7. Would love to do that but it's the same day as the British Car Show AND the Bears opener.

That's alright. Turns out I might not have my car back by next week Sunday either. I took her in yesterday to have my cold start issue looked into. Who knows what they're going to find or need to order. I'm hoping for everything to be sorted by next weekend (with working subwoofer), but we'll see what happens when they start digging into the engine issue. 9/21 is looking like it'll be a good turn out though.

I really want to make one of these drives. 9/21 is now out for me (I return to MKE ard 4pm from a work trip that week), so next Sunday might be the best opportunity. I will stay tuned.

it is so nice.. I love it. I hope the clutch/transmission last a while. I haven done any 0-60 from a complete stop, but i have floored it from maybe 10-15 mph. I am being nice to the car for now. After i change the clutch to something better, then it should be good.



it seems like i won't make it tomorrow :( things came up
