Looking for some SM guys to paddock with.

You know I will be there Brian...I intend to try and paddock close to tech (where ever that is) so I can get the annual before 9am hopefully

But, I too would like to paddock with the SM guys...

Hoping Mark Issacs will make the NCW too...

CYA then....

I was planning on it, but it turns out the car's still broken.

Biting the bullet, and doing a full motor/transmission/exhaust/radiator transplant. But it'll take a while to get it done, so I'm probably out until the Memorial Day double.

Drat.

I'm currently signed up for Groups 2 and 5 but may need to back out if I have to go down to SoCal that weekend. Should figure out what I'm doing by next Wednesday.

In any case, I'll be racing in Groups 2 and 5 at this weekend's Conference race at PIR.

Looking at the entry list, it looks like there will only be 10 Miatas in the Group 2 race.

I'm looking forward to watching Brian and Bill duke it out in the novice race. [Big Grin]

Just so I'm perfectly clear...they'd frown on me giving him a donut in a novice race, right? [Wink]

It'll be OK since you're both driving SMs. Just make sure you bumpdraft the Factory Five Cobra first though [Wink]

Hey...

Don't forget about Mieko...she's got the experience and a new looking car which I am told puts the "chick" back into the original chick car...HA!

I just hope Brian doesn't get ill inhaling all the white smoke out the back of my car on that 3rd to 4th up shift.

And thanks Michael for alerting all the "senior observers" that there might be a little fun going on between a couple of Miatas. Oh yeah!

CYA Sat am -

Great day racing today! This has been a LONG time coming for me personally. I was consistent, and steadily improved my lap times throughout practice and qualifying, posting my fasted lap of the day during the race.

Who needs crack when you can do this and NOT go to jail for it? I will never be the same.

I want to thank Carlo and Jon at TC Motorsports for building me a great car. Also Pat Newton and Greg Bush for all their help getting me here.

Fun day Bill, can't wait to race with you again!

Congrats, Brian. You have truly taking a toke from the go-fast crack pipe, and there's no going back.

Ditto from me too Brian. Won't be long I fear until I am viewing those white stripes in front of me instead of coming up behind me.

Ran out at Bremerton Sunday with SCCA track trials and had my RR caliper blow a seal and spewed brake fluid causing a big spin at end of straightaway. Just glad it didn't happen heading into turn 2 at PR.

My GO PRO HD camera took FANTASTIC video of race. Will try and figure out how to post it and let you know. Also one of the friggin fast 325's shot the race but only view of us was the start. Posted on youtube under May 1 Conference or similar.

Will be out at PR over Memorial Day...drop on by.

Bill

PS: Don't know if I got this quote thing down right. Guess I will know when I hit the "add reply" button.
