Norm,

I copy/pasted your comments in the Porsche forum. I figure the more the merrier.

Intro Group

Another reminder about our Intro Group. You must be at track during Registration Saturday morning (8am). Late registration on Saturdayis possible for Intro because it is much simpler than Time Trial/Race.
We do perform a simple Tech inspection on the car and that takes time. Registration takes time. And the Director of Registration is also a participant. You come late and he is gonna find it hard to find time to do some paperwork for you. Look at arosc.org for our Tech Shop list. Better to have the car checked before Saturday morning.
Intro students also must attend some classroom stuff. No classroom, no track time. So don't plan to fly in (Pelican reference!?!) mid Saturday morning and hope to get on the track.

Intro warning: Be carefull about getting track time. I did Intro too many years ago and it eventually got me into a race car and belonging so a crazy Italian car club!!!

I managed to borrow my buddies helmet and gloves for the intro event. Unfortunatly your warrnings come to late as I think I already have the "get me on a track virus". See you guys Saturday morning.

Question: I know you mentioned wearing natural fiber clothing but is it ok to layer clothing since I think it might be a bit chilly and do all layers have to be natural fibers as well?

Know what's funny...I met up with Simon at a gas station tonight and he pulled up looking like that while two highway patrol cars were searching a car next to us....I think they were going through the wrong car!

Your "outfit" seems very correct.
"natural fibers" mean we don't want a rayon shirt with a Raiders jacket, nylon sweats and polyprop ski socks. So jeans, tee shirt with a cotton/wool or flannel shirt, cotton socks. will do the job.
Don't worry about cold. Temp will be in the 70s, and your adrenalin will be pumping so a little chill from your open window won't be noticed.
See you there.

Simon;

Considering how fashion impaired he is , Paul was surprisingly articulate in giving you wardrobe advice. The only other thing you might want to consider is 'Depends'.

Wish I could go, badly! This weekend is just not good for me. When is the next time you run the intro group? I'll get helmet etc arranged in good time and keep the weekend open.

2005 AROSC Comp Schedule

The 2005 is still being made up.
Stay tuned.
We usually have a Willow Springs event in Jan or Feb.
High Performance Driving School can be between Feb and April.
Depends on how the Track Scheduling gods smile down upon our little car club.

The Alfa club runs a great event. I was one of the Porsche guys in attendance, and had a blast.

I was actually a little nervous, all weekend, since the last AROSC event I attended was the November 2002 day at Laguna Seca where I put my car into the wall outside of turn 9 and totaled it.

Ouch:



This time, I avoided the walls and was able to get some decent lap times in. I'm currently playing around with different ways to improve the bad aero of the early 911, and make my limited horsepower work as well as it can. The red pieces I bolted to the chin and sides of the car seemed to help. (Still, it didn't do so much that I could keep all four wheels on the ground.)



Of course, a lot of those pieces didn't survive an off-road trip I made in Turn 8:
