See you guys at the track!!!
I guess it's not a bad thing that I didn't get in on time to sign up for 6th Gear on the 11th and that I decided against joining EA for the 12th.

Hopefully, the weather will be better for the final 6th Gear event on Oct 2.

Another great trip to Watkins Glen!!

Set a new personal best lap time at WGI of 2:23.44! Interesting part is that when I analyze the data, this lap was the only lap where I dropped into 3rd gear in both corners 1 and 11. Speeds through 1 to 6 were typical for me but on this lap I carried more speed through the boot and especially corners 10 & 11, gaining me 3 seconds over my previous best.

If you are in the Watkins Glen area, check out the Map of the Original Watkins Glen Grand Prix Circuit and go for a drive along the route! All the roads a paved and the section through the park is quite interesting!

Your car was okay right? False alarm?

Great couple of days at the Glen, it was great seeing old and new faces.

I got a coolant error warning. So the heat from the Akra melted a plastic pipe that controls the valves in the exhaust and has a coolant sensor. So when that went, it threw a code. No actual coolant issue though thankfully.

WGI has awesome fun this last week! Blueberries and high fives for everyone! Looks like we're now down to the final few track days of the year.

So.... Who's coming to Calabogie on October 26-27?

THe Max thing! That's exactly what I thought when I saw a picture from the park on FB (particularly how the wife is carrying the baby on the hike ). Not to get sentimental, but I miss all you guys already. I have not found a comparably cool group in BMW/Porsche circles in Bay area yet. I just hope being able to track year round will be enough of a consolation

Well that's an effort in futility - you'll never find a group cooler than us.

Oh, and we've already begin auditioning for your replacement; we've got a few good candidates.
