Looks like its time to invest in a truck!

Glad you had fun!

Nice trailer though.

I made it to the BMW day. Did a few sessions and they asked me to bump up from I to Advanced, which felt good. Then Larry V took the Elise for a session and did things I was sure weren't possible. You might try a lap in the right hand seat with him sometime.

See you at PIR sometime.

i'll be in the lotus corral for a couple hours each day probably.

i heard about PIR (Larry was also showing someone how to drive a focus SVT) - glad you finally made it to an event. how's the car working for you? i just received the shifter bushing kit from Geary, will install shortly. will be curious to compare...

Much better. Of course it still shifts like a VW, just one in good repair.

I wasn't planning on coming to the historics. One has to pick and choose when one only gets a few days a year (kids, wife etc). But I was thinking about doing some days in the spec racer.

i did their 1/2 day intro to racing class. go for the 3-day if you're going to do it.

i might have something like 185 because i spent almost $3K on exhaust and ECU upgrade :(

but whatever the numbers, yes the car is quick enough to be entertaining. i run about the same lap times as a well-driven stock viper GTS on R compounds :)

I was going to the the 3 day and then there is an extra day of driving you can add on top of that.

I met you on Monday, but didn\'t get a chance to hitch a ride with you as I was busy riding with instructors (I was in the yellow group...first DE).

I really would have liked to take a ride as I have been considering an Elise as a track only car and haven\'t had an chance to ride in one yet.
