Yes...another great AROSC weekend. Thank you everyone who put on the event.

Also, congratulations to my brother Fabrizio who drove the wheels off his Giulia Super and beat me for the first time in the 10 years we've been racing against eachother. A long ovderdue win.

For anyone who didn't make it, Buttonwillow conditions were great! Not hot, track was great, lots of outstanding TT and race action. The Enduro went off without a hitch, and we had some very close results.

Thanks to all you participants! We set the event up, but you guys make it fun & exciting!

Hey Manuel:

Lots of fun following you around the track for a few laps. I was sure that car was going to spin or do something "interesting", but you kept it all together. Great fun!

Thanks to the AROSC volunteers for putting on a great event. I like the new initiatives such as the motorsportsreg registration, and thanks to Terry for re-opening it in late hours so that I could register!

My biggest disappointment was that Colin and I had to DNS the enduro and could not be part of that fun. Oh well, next year.

I have a bunch more paddock pics, but this is representative. Four Giulia Supers (me, Jeff T, Manuel M, Fabrizio R), one Berlina (Manuel), plus not to slight an unrestored EP Giulietta Spider, and a TZ, all hanging out together. Also Larry Jr's GTA clone w/ V6 power, a really fast cool car. Just a great weekend all around.

It was a great weekend! Good job (as usual) Team AROSC! I had problems with my rear race tires as I kept on pulling Tokyo drifts at some of the turns (or it could be the Asian inside of me ) ). I was faster on my street tires ;o( .

I had Potenziato in my car in the first session and we were having loads of fun. At the sweeper, I was pushing to chase Jess Liao in his F430 (haha, well I tried), we were going into it a bit too hot and went sideways quite a bit. He had his hands out, I guess gesturing "whoa there!" . LOL!

Great weather and people, can't really ask for more. See you all in Laguna!

It was great to see the big turnout of Alfas. I was pretty busy with all the behind the scenes stuff and racing, so I didn't get much chance to se all the TT stuff. Sounds like Open passing group was pretty lively. Sounds like you guys are liking the new run group set up?

Terry, et al,

thanks for all you do to throw this party, and thanks for letting a couple of Porsche guys come out and play! It was a fantastic weekend. Great weather, great racing and even better people.

Can't wait for the next one!

Cheers,

Mike

One of the funner sessions was when we were nose to tail and you let me by after Lost Hill and we both entered the back sweeper a mite too fast.

I found myself giving the car lots of opposite lock to keep it going in the right direction, and I thought, "where's 75Evo?" I briefly looked up into my rearview mirror and he was sideways as well, applying lots of opposite lock in order to make it into the entry of the esses!!

I'm no drifter (by Grant's standards) but I admit that was pretty cool

Well done AROSC! Great track, diverse group of cars, excellent drivers, lots of track time, and amazing weather… can’t ask for more.

Kudos to Terry and those involved for a job well done. Changes to the registration process, run groups, self-tech procedure, safety rules, and others all worked out well.

Colin.

AROSC's track events has always been the best, great instructors and well organized. AROSC events get the best people some how

I also witnessed some of 75evo's sideway actions 75evo you gotta stop running different F/R tires!
