    Time for the Scuderia Elettrica to ride again. 6:30ish at TBC at Regal Row and I35E, Rob's already confirmed with the site.

    Who's in?

    Well, hopefully more people are going to show. I know Jano is in, I think Rafi is coming. Who else? JimE is out of town, I haven't heard from JimS in a while. Wes, Greg, Rob, Ken? Darryl? Come on down!

    Sorry, I'm really beat. I'm only doing laundry and website stuff tonight. I'm sun burnt, gasoline chemical burn on my arm, and muscle sore from head to toe.

    I think Greg S. is out of town and I think Ron is pretty tired too.

    Tillman just called.

    They're closed for maintenance today. He'll call back when they know where they're going.

    I have us reserved for second Monday's all year, but they forgot to inform me about this. Sorry about that, I didn't think I needed to check in with them each month.

    Well it's a good thing that I didn't try to drive out there tonight. My transmission went out in the Integra, damn thing was stuck in gear. I think its the interlock pin but won't know until the morning.

    Here was the response I got from Greg first thing this morning...

    Rob,

    Man, I truly apologize for last night...When I left here@around 5pm I thought we were all good to go....You guys were even up on the highway message welcome board and everything...I knew the maintenance guys were working one track but I did not know they were closing BOTH tracks....Apparently they (including the mgr on duty)were making lots of progress and just kept pluggin' away without thinking...They were not supposed to...and I do apologize....

    Is March shot for FCA, or would you guys like to try to put something together later this month? I realize you all have dedicated events scheduled....so whether you come out this month or for next month, next time, we'll take care of everyone's first race next time you guys come to race as a group....

    Or if you provide me an address I mail out a dozen free race passes to use anytime...whatever works best for you...
    let me know what would work best for you guys...

    Again, sorry for the mix up....

    Greg Griffin


    He's going to send me some passes, so let me know who went out last night. Thanks.

    Jano and me. That's all that showed, which is why I didn't bother to make any fuss at TBC.

    Is it time to retire the karting, or was it just bad timing/event overload?

    I think it might be worth considering going to every other month. I still want to attend, I just have way too much going on right now.

    We went but didn't really see any cars, then just went ahead and ate downtown.

    Jano and I hung out in the outside parking lot until 7:10 or so, checking out his latest toy, and then took off because nobody was there. Both 328s should have been visible. Sorry we missed you

    FWIW, we usually park inside the garage.

    I missed the last two because I was out of town, but FWIW, I'd like to keep it a monthly event.

    I received 12 free race passes from TBC yesterday. I'll give some to those that showed up and I think we should use the others to get some new people out. Maybe if things look decent for April, we'll market to some new FCA members for May and get a big turnout.
