This is only partially true. For TT & Race trophies & point, Alfas will compete with other makes in class K through Q. However, lap records will be maintained for Alfa class cars. Bring that Alfa out and set a record!

Wow!, good to see you are coming, Marco!
My GTV is in better hands, and I've been "sensa una Alfa" for a whole year. Not good. But hopefully...

The last time I ran BW, it was a NCRC event with AROSC as a guest (as it is this time). Like last time, we ran clockwise then counter clockwise. I preferred the CCW over the CW direction as it offers better braking points. Yes, it is two completely different tracks with both being fun. Not so sure I can enter this time as my monetary status is retarded. Most likely I will show up and spectate for one day.

Where is everybody?

I heard somewhere that Norm was going to be "a contender" for the Enduro. Well?

Enduro

To the race Directors,
will the fate of the endure be decided on Saturday or earlier?
I am prepared for it, but other people plans revolve around whether it will happen or not. So far there are 13 cars. Are there any in the Northern Cal group?

Yes, at least two. We're on!

It's always like this. Yes, we're on, as NCRC has at least two, and there are always a bunch of late cars that register at the track. I'd anticipate at least 18 cars.

The enduro is definitely on. We are at 13 with 2 possibles, and last year some NCRC guys signed up at the track.

If we are only at 13, we will still run it. AROSC will kick in the cost of 2 entries, and maybe will will pass a hat around the drivers meeting for contributions. With up to 26 drivers, it won't take but a few bucks each to cover it.

For Saturday does the Enduro group run with the Race group or are they seperate groups?

Here is a video of me chasing Brad around Buttonwillow on 6/15/13. Brad is driving Terry's RX7 in the Open group.

To all the directors, participants and friends,
Just staring to recuperate from such a busy weekend I finally have the strength to sit down and thank everybody for a fabulous event. Talking about a fast course in learning a new track! I think I spent every inch of energy I had left from the Saturday races and enduro, and was able to enjoy one of the most fun times in a long, long time. I guess we will have to wait until October for big Willow.

RKT Roy's video is fun to watch. Brad was one of my first TT instructors when I was learning "the line".

Would love to see more videos of the event. On board or from the outside. Unfortunately a was not able to make my rig work so I have nothing to show for.

Hi Jorge:

I wanted to hardwire my GoPro into the car, but didn't get it done. Way too busy Saturday with the races and enduro to mess with it, but kept the camera on the charger and put it in Sunday. When I went to fire it up for the 45 minute Race 1, the **** battery was discharged! I did get it charged enough for Race 2 and Brad's timed runs.

Will post something when I get a chance. I was coming down with something starting Thursday night, and by the time I got home last night, I was a complete vegetable. It was an exhausting weekend, but the good kind of exhausting, not the "bad couple of days in the office" exhausting! Glad to see you take some ribbons!
