    No, FerrariChat.com Race Team shirts are only for sponsors or winners of special prizes.

    However, I'm working right now with the company that did the shirts and we're going to have an online store with various FerrariChat.com logo merchandise, although no race team stuff.

    One thing I can't stand is cheap shirts that shrink and you don't even want to wear them after a couple times. I went all out this time and got the best polo and t-shirt they had.

    The Polos are Cutter & Buck 100% cotton. The t-shirts are Gildan Activewear Ultra 100% Cotton Heavyweight.

    Thanks Rob, appreciated since I know how you hate to go to the post office.

    How are the decals on the 355C coming along?

    Well, I have found a new place and got quotes, I just need to send them the requirements. The next event for the car won't be until February and all the graphics will be on the car by then for paid sponsors.

    Don't expect the models or pictures until early summer.

    For the major sponsors like yourself you can probably expect that after March we can schedule a date at MSR. It will be warmer then too.

    I live there, 80% of what I do on FerrariChat.com is on that couch. I wrap up in that blanket and you can see my laptop resting on the back.

    You're modeling the regular "2004 FerrariChat.com" line, not the sponsors only "Race Team" line. :)

    Just received the raceteam shirts today. Thanks. They look great!

    What private airports are closest to the track you drive on the most? Need to plan a trip there in the Spring to coincide with one of your races.

    There's several private airports in the area of MSR. The track is right at Cresson, TX. So I'm not sure which ones are closest.
