A number of people start with Novice Time Trial.
You stay awake during class, definitely have an instructor with you during your first session, drive your car to your ability (the prize money isn't all that great), practice your 'point by' and remember to breath on occassion.

Yeah, it's too bad you missed the 2nd day. You would have learned a bit more about "the line" in class plus the speeds were up a bit on the track. Another Intro Gp weekend wouldn't hurt; Willow can be pretty fast place for your 1st TT . But then, no one is forcing you to go around any faster than you feel comfortable. Remember, Norm will probably be out there going a lot slower than you, that is unless his car gets an engine transplant, then who knows .

Thanks to Rob Rhodes who took the photos of the Saturday qualifying races; and Mike McKibbin who took the all the other. Great pics thanks for sharing! Here is a link to a Porsche board where I posted some of the Alfa and early 911 pictures Mike McKibbin shared with me. See you at the Alfa races next year.
Anthony, enjoyed sharing point byes. Yes my silver tape and spoiler are already in the trash.

I was really stoked that I caught that on video. I was playing with a new digital camera that shoots small video clips and thought I'd give it a try right when the two of you were coming down the straight.

I thought for sure for a second there you guys were going to collide.
