This track and I, we have unfinished business! Yes it's Speedtrial, there will be multiple offs, very dirty track, dangerous drivers. So I figure if we fill up a run group (I am going on Sunday in group D) we can run like a pack and be...safer? lol

Cheap, $130 for one day or $210 for both. Think Eddie and I are planning on Sunday -

OH MY!

scares me:eek:

Actually if you stack the drivers in your group "D" with friends and Lotus drrivers, it will be safer and more fun.

Can I join? --Hal

Of course Hal! The race group is like stripped down cars with cages on slicks who run NASA time trials...then there's beginners, intermediate and high intermediate - I think D is high intermediate underneath the race group. There's not a lot of track time compared to Jack or LCS, and I'll prolly just sit out the first session to get rid of all the crazies, but it's cheap enough to run a 2 or 3 sessions and have some fun

Peter/Eddie -- Do Big Willow....it's a lot of fun and the practice will help as there will be two LCS events at Big Willow in 2009.

I won't even touch the SpeedTrial "spin-fest" issue, except to say.....after attending two of their events, I'll never do another one (and I'm a track junkie ;)).

Like any new track...you need to sneak up on it ;).... you can handle Big Willow.

Friday at the Streets is a PCA (San Diego Region) track day....I've run with them. They are good guys and gals. :)

As for Tuesday, I told Ben that you may be bringing the STi....he told me you guys recently "spoke" over at that other forum. :D

Yep, I might bring both actually, we'll see... the STi doesn't have pads/lines yet and it doesn't really wanna stop that fast, but the KW's are set perfect and it's got sticky rubber :)

OK, I'll sign up for Sunday... Black Group?

Make us proud . Represent the series and show them how its done. Remember lots of patience . 5 @ 20 minute sessions. Some of you had 100 + laps on Friday .
I might have been one of those 100+ people... probably the most track laps I've ever done in a day... :bow:
