    I think my ribs might let me do it. What about starting at 7. Remember how late it was before we got started the last time? Takes at least an hour for everyone to get their act together. Start at 7, drive at 8.

    I am in.
    Verifing Chris as I type.

    So, since we are repeat customers as a big group, what kind of true deal are we going to swing? :)

    I should be able to make it for the 25th.
    For me, the later, the better, so I am fine with 8pm.

    PS
    Let me know when it is time for the a%s trickle story, I will don my mental profilactic and strap on my helmet.

    By the way, I preferred the 4-min practice/qualifying followed by the 10-minute race format like we had the last time we were at GKR. The way it worked out, we also had a ten minute break between races so we could "remove and replace" fluids.

    The 10-minute practice followed immediately by the 20-minute race that we had last night at LMK was a bit brutal.

    I agree with Nizam,
    we need a break in between.

    I have confirmed Chris will be there again. If we need more, I have a few more friends on the bankroll, I can tell them to come.

    Confirmed
    -----------
    1 Luke
    2 Nizam
    3 April
    4 Larry
    5 Rich (watch out for Kiyoshi)
    6 Chris
    7 Kiyoshi (from Lotus club - guy is waaaay fast)
    8 Dan
    9 Faisal
    10 Art

    Unconfirmed
    ------------
    11 Matt
    12 Philip
    13 John Nitis
    14 Ben
    15 Wilfred
    16 Ed (from Lotus group)
    17 Billy (from Lotus group)

    Numbers are looking good. I think more than two groups (20 people) just gets hard to handle. I will make reservations this weekend. Should know about the "deal" by then. I liked the 4 minute qualifying then 10 minutes of racing as well.

    Art, 7.30 pm is the earliest I could do on a workday--that would put us on the track by 8pm. Everyone cool with that? I know Rich and Nizam come from quite far away, so I will leave it up to them to dictate the meet time.

    Looking forward to it, folks (might just sneak in a practice over the weekend too).

    ...one of these days, I will try to do a class. While pricey, organizers guarrantee to shave a second off your best time. Which would put me in the mid 25s on track one, if I remember correctly/

    7:30pm is the absolute earliest that I can make it up there. Thanks for the thought, guys. 101N can be a b!tch before 7pm on a weekday.

    Luke, look forward to seeing you up there! :) (do you mind bringing your 250 or is that reserved for non-foggy weekends only?)

    no ferrari....got somebody fabricating a fan shroud for me this week, so they need the car for measurements (R&R of radiator requires hood to come off).
    Next time, no problem. I like any excuse to drive it (did tonight).

    Ok, there is room as long as you let me know in advance, and as long as we don't go over 20 (groups are 10 people max). So yes, I will put down Dominick, and Vincent.

    Let's aim to meet at 8pm as a lot of people have said they will have problems making it there by 7.30pm. I will be there early so if you want to hang out, socialize, please come by early. That's one of the things I didn't like about our event last time...there wasn't too much time to hang out and shoot the ****. So by all means, if you can get there by 7.30, please do.
