I'm in, for Testing too.
1st time running the track, should I throw my orange plate back on?

I won the raffle at TH which was the bucket AmorAll and the free NASA HPDE. Too bad that's Sep 25th.

Any pointers welcome, my camera will be running.

Johnny,

PM me your email address. I wrote up a "track guide" for Infineon that might be helpful for you that I'd be happy to send.

Cheers,

Since we're bragging, if you'd like to see a lap .8 faster than that one, you could watch this:

It was nice meeting some of you at the Thunderhill regional a few weeks ago. Had a blast in my first two races. I'm planning on making this one as well.


Dean, would you mind sharing your Infineon guide with me as well? I am running the IRL configuration on Monday, but I have never run the regular configuration that SCCA uses.

Ah don't forget the titillating, Lavender Fantasia-Sitzspin. My favorite.
Lets see. Dean can be Mailbu since he's a bit blond. Juan can be Nina, (sounds a bit ethnic),
Mercedes can be Paul or maybe Dion, Roxy is Steve Holifield, and Cinnamon is, well she's good on anything.

Pat, you are watching way to many blue movies

Hey Dean,

Not to be late to the party on this one but aren't you and Joey 1 and 2 seconds seconds off the pace at Infineon? I seem to remember the track record being a 1:54.0.

Sigh, how soon the younger generation forgets. [rolling on floor laughin]

For sure, I was definitely towed around by Tommy O that day, no doubt! [Big Grin]

Let's be clear I would not be where I am today without Tommy O's tuteledge. [thumbsup]

My only regret is that I'm is that I have not lived up to the potential that Tommy saw in me whem he took me under his wing.

Tommy, when do I stop "wax on, wax off"?

Young, but wise grasshopper Brad, you never stop...remember a great leader should never be judged on how many he leads but rather on how many he teaches to lead.
You are an awesome leader! Keep up the great work!
I'm watching you and think the world of you!

All the best,

Geez, get a room guy's!

I seem to remember a big tow from T.O. for me my first and only time at Infinion. You knock a big hole bud! As good as it was it was only good for P2 -a full second behind Brad's super-human lap. That was fun weekend!

Wish I was going to be there. Maybe next year...

It's been so much fun driving with you and your talent. ALWAYS good to race w/you.
Brad,
You just keep doing what you're doing...not worried about you at all. 25 Hr., well sure I'll be your co-driver:)
I'm @ T-Hill next weekend to qualify for Mazdaspeed $ for NASA Nationals...why is it I can't get enough seat time?

They are - from 1st session till last. Unfortunately, I've found that "last" session is about 8 heat cycles later, not the 20+ that's been advertised.
