AROSC at Laguna Seca Oct 20-21, 2018
1 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone.

Those on the AROSC mailing list have received notifications of the Laguna Seca event this October. In case you missed it, here's the meat:

AROSC makes its trek up north to Laguna Seca about once every two years. Sometimes the interval is longer. But one thing is constant: Laguna Seca always provides a great backdrop for AROSC events! The track's facilities are very good and the track complexity is very challenging.

As of today (June 9th), there's a good amount of signups already signaling the eagerness of the membership to drive on this iconic track. And better yet, there are actually a large number of Alfas already signed up!

I'll be encouraging all of my track-day friends to come out and participate in this event and hope y'all will do the same. The AROSC crew holds the safest and organized events.

Here's a pic of the track I took from the air. Yes, the tree you aim for when finding the apex for 8A is still there :D

Help with wheels from San Diego?

I'm very excited about this event. I've been to Laguna Seca many times with PCA and Allen Berg Racing School, but this will be my first time with the AROCSD.

I am coming up from San Diego and would love to find someone going with a trailer, motorhome, truck or other vehicle that could help me get a set of wheels up to the track for Sunday.

I can deliver and retrieve them any time and anywhere thats convenient before and after the event. Willing to go as far north as Orange County.

Edit - Found a ride for my wheels! Thanks to everyone to PM'd me.

I'll be there with my 240z.

Unfortunately, my father and his 66 GTV won't make it. Dad (Art Russell) fell off his bicycle and broke his hip. He's in physical rehab making good progress. He's looking forward to driving at California Speedway in December.

It is going to be a fun weekend. We are basically sold out. The Laurels Inn is out of rooms, hello Motel 6 !
The Time trial groups are closed/full. Intro Saturday has 16 drivers and is closed.
We have 25 Alfa Romeos in time trial, 4 of them Giulia Quads, 3 more Alfas in Race.
I see Panoz, McLaren, BMW, Corvettes, 1 Cadillac, a million Miatas, a Radical, Mercedes. Porches of all types, vintage IMSA Mustang Cobra.

If you are going to be there get there EARLY. Registration is at 7. We have over 120 people to get thru registration. First Drivers Meeting is at 8, first car on the track, Race, 9am.

Very sorry to miss it this year. Maybe next year (please do repeat!!). Seems maybe an indication of growing alfa enthusiasm for the track...

:grin2: Oh, I have an Alfa or two...

I daily my 4C, 32,000 miles now.
The Giulia is the Garage Queen with a lowly 16,000 miles.
Both have been tracked a few times.
The 240z is my dedicated track car.

Perhaps we'll see you at California Speedway in December.

What a great weekend! I had way too much fun. Weather was perfect, couldn't be any more perfect even if we had planned on it. Car ran great and I felt good out there on the track. Thanks Don and everybody else who helped put this event on.

Perhaps we'll see you all at California Speedway in December.

Echoing @Racer Z, once again the AROSC put together a fantastic weekend of fun and friends, and for those with faster cars ... good lap times!

We arrived at Laguna Seca on Friday evening.

Yup we're in the right place.

Attachment 1532972

We unloaded the cars of the usual trackside necessities (tools, floorjack, jackstands, etc.)

Attachment 1532974

and headed to dinner. Monterey never disappoints this time of year.

Next morning we were up bright and early. It was foggy at the coast.

Attachment 1532978

But the sky was clear at the track. Driver's meeting.

Attachment 1532980

Unfortunately, I had a misbehaving car, so it was time to wrench. Glad AROSC had these garages for rent.

We had a little bit of fun with the amount of wrenching and fixing we saw in the garages. A little game of Bingo was quickly organized.

Attachment 1532994

We had lots of time to catch up with fellow gearheads.

Attachment 1533000

And there's something special about laying out the folding chairs and picnic tables trackside. There were some fun viewing of the exit of Turn 11.
