Alfa's At The Glen Wallpaper! Beautiful Picture!

I got this forwarded to me by Peter Krause (www.krauseandengland.com). It's a great background image from the Alfa feature race at Watkins Glen. It's a great picture, just missing a certain red/yellow #681 GT Junior Thank You Peter!

Great picture. It was an honor, pleasure, and a hell of a fun race to be in. Let's do it again soon.

Watch what you say, it just might! Do you think most of the people that attended that race would mind towing half way across the US? Colorado is half way for both east and west coast.

Anthony,
It would be great to get all of you guys/gals here in Colorado! But you all might be bummed about all the horse power you loose at this altitude.?.? Not what you are use to any way.

Armco

Serious Armco, but that's part of the Glen and has been for decades! Thankfully, other than a small boo-boo sustained by Michael Lawton's Giulia Spider in the Enduro, we were all clean.

Of course, my life did pass before my eyes twice in my twelve timed laps this past weekend. Once was in front of Steven Fog or Eliot Shanabrook when I put two off as the curbing ran out at the exit of T5 in fifth (?!?!?) and once when Steven, Russ Theus, Nort Northam, some 911 and I were all in the gravel trap exit of T10 after spinning off on three gallons of Datsun Z oil at turn-in (again, flat out in fourth gear!), waiting like a sitting duck for someone else to fly off the track and into us. Thankfully, that did not occur...

Really an extraordinary weekend and already thinking about organizing something in another year or two.

I came around turn 9 or whatever that last left-hander is before the front straight and couldn't believe that you guys decided to hold a little concours event in the kitty liter during the practice race! I want to party with you guys, but decided to take it easy the next few laps and got off the track before I joined you in the kity litter!
