We won't be getting there until race time. Our race at RA gets over at 8pm Saturday so we won't get to Newton until about 3-4pm Sunday. Just in time to get some drinks and then watch a "race". Won't seem to good after an ALMS race

OK, I did some research and in depth reading.
  • Nurburgring is God's Race Track
  • Road America is God's back yard (hence the term God's Country)
  • Daytona International Speedway (the oval) belongs to hell (Satan's Race Track)

Hope we can fit the grill in the trunk also. 4 bags, 4 helmets, 1 giant cooler, 4 seats, and a grill are gonna make it tight. Gonna be awesome sitting at turn 5 watching the race for 4 hours and grilling though.

Yo Prez, do you happen to still have my walkie talkie from the last open track day? I can only find one and I remember that is the last time I used them. If not...them oh well.

take the car in for rear brakes tuesday, means I have to change the rims so they can't scratch the breytons. Wish I would have thought about that before it got hot out. Looking into doing an LSD so I don't go through pads as quick and the car handles better.

MR MONEYBAGS! Maybe you should have just gotten the M3 and saved some cash in the end. I know I think about that all the time. It only took me 5 1/2 years and 16,000 track miles to seriously consider buying the LSD.

I did think that I should have gotten an M3 but the lease is TERRIBLE! In the long run it would have been cheaper though, but I was putting too much money into the new garage, lol

2030 Rally

Dear Prez,

Are you still doing the 2030 Rally? Also do you know where the final checkpoint / party is going to be?

Your friend,
ru
