For all of you who didn't show up (I guess this applies to *ahem* ALL of you), this one was fun too. I went in the GS class cuz I wanted to get pictures of my sis running in ASR, so instead of getting my butt kicked, I got slaughtered, but oh well. The course was shorter and less twisty than the previous week in Oakland...the best time went to that crazy Lotus Europa, which turned in a 33 something. <p>I was the only A4, 3 or 4 M3s, the old Jag, the standard Rx-7s, many Corvettes, etc etc. Many folks who were at last weeks were there again.<p>I'm happy to report that Karen brought her M3 and had a blast...she was pretty nervous before her first lap, but after she finished it, she was smiling again. On her best lap, she beat me (dammit ;)). If the pics are any good, I'll post a few when my scanner comes in.<p>We brought food this time so we weren't as miserable. <p>Next week is in Sacramento, just a little far. Hope to see everyone on the 31st.

Siiigggghhhh...I'd love to. But 250 clams is a lot of clams, especially when I have an old Lincoln begging for parts. What's the deadline for signing up and all that?<p>Warren

Alot of people share rooms so the cost can stay way low on hotel and food.<p>Consider it...I think we will have about 15-20 A4s at that even....easy.<p>Steve S.<br>97 2.8QM<p>P.S. You let your sister beat you in Stockton?...that was nice of you.

Dumb question...I went to Thunderhill's page and couldn't find stuff on the event. Where do I sign up? I'll check my latest Quattro quarterly tonight...it does sound like a lot of fun.<p>Warren<p>Yeah...I let her beat me. But stay tuned for round two...CAGE MATCH!

Call up Thunderhill & request an application form from them. That's how it starts. <br>On the Thunderhill wep site, there's all sort of info., including the track schedule, but no real details describing each scheduled event.<br>Maybe I'll try scanning the article about last January's event from the Quattro Club Quarterly and post it. Sounded like a great event.<p>Bob B<br>98.5 2.8 QTS

I lost a lot of brain cells pulling out that 3rd run! That was a hard earned victory, I'll have you know! 8^)<p>No, seriously. It was luck. And the car. Had nothing to do with driving skill, since I had very little idea what I was doing......just kinda thinking "squeeze the throttle, turn the steering wheel, hang on, and HAVE FUN!!!!!"<p>I also managed to be the first person of the day to DNF on that course (though, thank god, not the last....). A dubious honor at best, earned with my DEMOLISHING the first of four cones in the course's only slalom, recovering on the wrong side of cone #2, and finishing the slalom on the wrong side of each cone. An excellent display of utter confusion.<p>Looking forward to Halloween, and to embarassing the family right here in the Bay Area.....
