Thanks to all who took the wonderful pics!!

Man, I was so beat last night when I got home. I must say however, the absolute highlight of my entire weekend was when Larry allowed me the opportunity to drive the GT at speed during one of the red group sessions. As you can imagine, I jumped at the opportunity to drive such a wonderful car on track. While I of course did not push it really hard (primarily because I cannot afford to replace it if I wreck it!! ), this car just keeps begging you to push it. I was just amazed at the level of grip coming around the turn two sweeper. I just kept giving it gas and it just kept sticking like glue and was asking for more. What a machine!!! Thanks Larry for trusting me behind the wheel of your wonderful machine!! Any time you feel the need to have someone else drive it on track - just let me know!!

For those of you who don't know already, I also drove Carl's car during a session early on Saturday. I am very sad to say that the supercharger locked up during my session. I of course felt awful that it went kablooey when I was behind the wheel, but Carl (being the gentleman he is) assured me that it would have done the same thing if he had been driving it. Again, Larry Frank stepped up to save Carl's weekend by allowing him to drive both the Cobra R and the GT on track. Actually, during the red session when I was driving the GT, Carl was in front of us in Larry's R. Picture a GT chasing down a 2000R!

All in all, it was a great weekend! The weather was just absolutely outstanding!

Many thanks of course go out to all the coordinators. Jim and Jackie, with out your efforts, this thing could not be pulled off. Everyone else, especially the instructors - Thanks again for making this such a success!!
