We will release the schedule at least a week before the event. CCW.

Thanks to everyone who has responded to our latest email. We've had a few cancellations, so we have openings in Intermediate and Advanced. Please spread the word

Will the intermedia group be required to ride with instructors? If so I request JTRM3 or ken o!

It looks like we might get a tiny break from the heat this weekend...92 instead of 102. Hey, it'll help!

92 vs 102 is a good start.

You'd think a track built in Texas forty-four years ago would have time to build a roof over the pavement by now.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

If they made a 40-foot wide aluminum roof over the paved portion, then the track could be used even when it's raining.

Or when it is 112 degrees, when they activate the DCOVMS for us. *

You need a cover to use the track when it's raining?

OK all of you fence riders......the weather is working in our favor so it's time to make a decision. We won't have time to take payments trackside so let's do this. We still have a few spots but you know they won't last long. If history repeats itself we'll have 6 or 7 people the night before trying to get a spot. Don't wait to hear "we are at capacity"..................Phil

We won't be running/wasting mashmallow spec A6s out there but any data is good data. I'll be testing out a set of soft compound Ventus TDs with a view to using them as my TT practice/warmup tire for gridding purposes.

My goal is to stick to your bumper when you're on the R1S's. If I can do that then I'm in good shape for Sept. Don't sandbag now...

Probably not, but it'll be fun trying.
