This Saturday we will have a meeting at PROMAX motorsport in Alhambra. It will be our first bi-weekly meeting. I wish you all can come, since we had so much fun at the Manhattan Beach meeting and Bimmerfest caravan.

If any of you are interested, please give me your legal name before Friday, so I can put you on the guest list.
Below are the meeting agenda, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
When: 1:00PM - May 12,2007
Where: PROMAX Motorsport http://maps.google.com/maps?f=l&hl=e...4&iwloc=A&om=1

Charlie,
I'd bet Mike would get into your car with no practice launches and beat 95% of the guys out there with MTs.

He and I both came from awd/mts, but Mike has alot of drag racing experience and I on the road course.

Let him drive it !

Hey Charlie, well, not really.
My sedan was the first auto car I've owned.
All my others have been manual and I've been drag racing for 19 years.

Thanks Kujo, I don't know about beating 95% of the manual 335i drivers there my first time out with no practice and never driving the manual 335i before...maybe the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th run tho....

Conditions should be pretty good (as far as LACR goes).
Weather.com shows:

At 10 am when racing begins:
74 degrees, 20% humdity, 10 mph winds from the West

At 3 pm (hottest part of day):
83 degrees, 14% hunidity, 17 mph winds from the West.

LACR tracks runs pretty much directly South, so these winds will be side winds hitting the car on the passenger side. Again, this is pretty good, as the winds are usually coming from the West/Southwest which is a slight head wind.

Traction will still stink, but at least everybody can hope for something a bit better than the ice the track usually is.
