We'll Be There

We'll have just about all the cars from the shop out there. I'll be in my new ride as well as a couple other customers.

New Ride

Italspeed, a old car dealer and parts supplier WWW.ITALSPEED.COM acquired a very period correct 1963 Giulia Spider. They have asked me to run it for them in 2003 with various clubs. The car is not the fastest because it set up for HMSA which requires the being close to stock but I am sure it will still be a kick in the pants. I will only be using my GT Jr. for the Magnaflow Vintage 2.5 Series. WWW.BSEDAN.COM

What's a first intro ride?

Ride with someone else or go for a spin in your own car? If it is to sit shotgun is there any one out there who will let a 168lb pasenger bog their lap time down. If so I might be up for a spin.

Willow last weekend

It was a great event.....

So, Sniady, did you do Intro Group? If so, which one were you? All of the intro students did a good job! I am the Intro Group instructor......

Anthony, it was fun racing with you! How many times did we pass each other in the Alfa Cup race Sunday? Had to be at least 12, right? I appreciated your sportsmanship on the track. It's not often that I am comfortable going side-by-side with someone all the way from turn 3 thru turn 9! It was fun.

The highlight for me was getting another opportunity to drive Joel's Ferrari 360GT for two back-to-back sessions. Spoke to himyesterday, and he told me that I could drive it again at Sears Point in Feb. when the Ferrari Challenge guys are having a 2 day open test! I can't wait. That car can do 1.25s at Willow.

We had 160 entries, which is our biggest event so far......

So, anybody putting together teams for the Enduro at Buttonwillow?

Anybody going to the Driving School at the Streets Of Willow?
