sly1, ya we all go to the races at Newton. Not sure on exact plans as some of us will be going to Road America the same weekend for ALMS and then leaving from there Saturday night to be in Newton Sunday. Sometimes in Newton we get invited up to a luxury suite, so we don't sit in any "seats". Figure that weekend will be the same.

Prez, pics look good from the school. Going to have to set one as a background

Road America

Lets meet at 7am. If it is raining, I won't go. Fortunately, the forecast says no rain until the evening hours. If it does rain, then we go drink beer all day somewhere and watch old racing movies...hahah. Cross your fingers...

RA:
On a side note, how many people are confirmed going for ALMS at Road America? (Ru, WERND, Jamie and Prez?) I need to buy tix and book the room. Tix will be $75 for Friday and Saturday. Hotel will be $200 total for Thursday and Friday Night.

Road America

$200 per pillow.....JK. It is $206 for both nights which means $50 per person. Also WERND mentioned renting a van. Plus add gas, food, souvienirs, tires, carbon fiber pieces and race seats.

Here is a little memory from last year. The Audi caught fire shortly after this picture was taken.

I am wondering this also. I may be out of cash and time, but I might be able to find a way to do something before O'Fest. I guess we will see how Putnam Park goes and if I need more development time in the car.

car is rented for ALMS. Have a Charger from Thrifty but I guess Jamie might get his mom's 328. That would be nice, then I wouldn't have to drive. Still can't wait to go karting there
