Gents,

I will not be able to make the Dec 11-12 event as that is Tammy's birthday weekend (11th).

I may be able to do the event in November with Drivers Edge (13-14)? we orginally had plans for that weekend but they have changed. Are you guys planning on making that event?

Otherwise, how about the Porsche Club event the first weekend in December?

JBoden

David and I are signed up for the Drivers Edge, Nov 13 & 14 at TWS (CW)

Larry and I are also signed up for Oct 2 & 3 at TWS (CCW)

Let's get that Silver beauty back on Track - besides, I need to measure your trailer for a tire rack.

ha... you mean the one which was stolen a while back? :mad:

I will be buying a new one soon, and will hopefully have it in time for the November event at TWS. Otherwise, I will borrow Carl's as I know he can't make that event.

I am registering for the November 13-14 event today. See you guys there! Boy, I am in need of some track time!!!!!

ok, I just finished registering for the TDE event at TWS on November 13-14. I spoke with Rick and he asked me if I had been abducted by aliens as he had not seen me and the R out to play in a long time. I told him I had bought David's 03 and he welcomed me back.

So, I will be out to play in the Cobra running with David and Jim (and anyone else who plans on making it) in the red run group. I also got a garage spot as well and will hopefully be next to David and Jim.

See you guys at the track! :bounce: :thumbsup:

Just got signed up for Nov 13/14. Rick wanted to know if I was still talking to all those "rod benders" from Houston so he could pit me with them. You'all haven't been up there since the sink hole developed between turn one and two, have you?

What sink hole ??

[QUOTEWhat sink hole ??[/QUOTE]When Gary and I did the TWS group in July (clockwise) they had cones on the inside of the track between turns 1 and 2. We were told that a drainage line had broken under the turn and had cause a underground wash out and that they were going to have to dig down and fix it. It's on the inside at the end of the blend lane and it looked like it would be more of a problem going CCW than CW.

When I talked to Rick yesterday he said that it should be fixed before this weekend's event. Jim and I will check it out and let you know.

I hope we have this weather for TDE @ TWS in November. Last weekend was great. Sink hole is not fixed, but the amount of cones around it was shortened and it didn't get in our way. Jim and I had a blast. Cars ran great and I scuffed in a new set of Hoosiers.

Like David, I'm going to wait until closer to the date and see what the weather is doing before I sign up for the half day Friday. Car will have some new stuff that will need to have a few shake down laps before the weekend.

I have my "full wets" packed up. :( Don't have a set of "intermediates" like the F1 guys have. :) Everyone's been saying how I need to do a rain event so that I could really learn how to drive -- looks like I'm going to get my chance.

my first track event was Road Atlanta, and it rained the whole day. Guy in the group before me totaled his 2001 Cobra when he went off track and hit an embankment. Talk about a learning curve. ;)

Wondering if you track dogs are interested in an early dinner before the Track opens tonight.

Larry and I plan to meet at the steakhouse on the right side of Hwy 6, just past the Navasota exit (can't remember the name) at 5 this afternoon.

Parking lot is huge and trailer friendly. Food is good. :thumbsup: :cheers:

Navasota has 5 or 6 exits. Are you talking about Wranglers Steakhouse on highway 6 on the east side? If so, it is the highway 90 exit. Right next door the McDonald's! You can't miss it. :rolleyes:

WHAT A WEEKEND!

Good weather -- Great friends -- Good food -- Great track time, and best of all about two more points of my "pucker factor" were removed (slowly, very slowly I'm getting there).

Yes, I still had my left arm out the window all weekend, but I still had fun. I'm thinking about getting a used manikin arm and bolt it to the B piler so I don't have to take my left hand off the wheel.

Those 3:73 gears really worked great.

It's so much more fun when there is a group of us from the club that can pit together and help each other out.
