I got only a few good'uns:

Above, the garages at Sears Point, with a nice array of race cars, including Jon Norman's GTV and a GTAm with the narrow-angle head. Norman's Alfetta race car has a twinspark head-- pretty rare in California!

Parade Laps at lunch-- after a few minutes the Montreal smelled like a proper Italian car, just a whiff of brake pads and hot oil:

Wow indeed! I counted 4 Junior Zs and at least 4 SSs, as well as 2 Alfetta Sedans! No Montreals in the parking lot (though one seen in the pictures from the track) and only one lonely Milano.

Please keep the pictures and videos coming for those of us who couldn't be there.

Just wondering if anyone happen to have the Time Trial Results or know where they might be posted.

Thanks!

Not something you see every day (unless you live in Berkeley), Dave Mericle's white Colli and Martin Lauber's blue one (not sure if Colli, but RHD) at the track Wednesday.

I've checked with Brian S about track results. Awards are being given at the lunch banquet today, so maybe they won't post/reveal til after, but certainly times were posted at the event, if not resulting positions.
