If Cris is going, then I'm in. I'll show up to anything just as long as my pride doesn't have to worry about being the slowest person there. I used to think I was the only person to ever get lost on a track

Cris, we better watch out though, Greg is brushing up on his driving skills, and might school us all!

Matt- Planning on doing more testing & tuning @ the Camarillo Airport.. I might make this a monthly thing for us locals.. Limit it to about 20 people/cars though.. ALot easier to control.. I don't want it to make it an event.. Just driving our cars in a safe environment.. plus it brushes up on our driving skills.. I have discussed this with Mary P..

Monsoon in September near Bakertucky? LOL!!!

Todd, you up for a Payback and Creampuff garage/hotel again?

Oh, and the Camaro has 200tw's on it now. Kumho's out of stock for a while but with a track day Wednesday I needed something.

Hmmmmm.......I've had carpet installers use that excuse when they were scared of a challenging job.

Tood/Chris - You both get huge respect from me - not only for your respective cars, driving ability and your willingness to share openly on the forums all the good, bad and the ugly - but for spicing things up with some friendly rivalry.

I was too busy soaking-up my first time out on the track with the car - taking in all the feedback from the car and as a driver too. It was great to be doing this in such good, supportive company as well as a good, open space too :-) I had a blast and cannot wait for the next event (Riverside?)

No worries Matt - I'll cover the rear of the pack for a while - should take the pressure off lol.

Blake/Greg - bring your rides down and help this gathering gain even more momentum. I know the guys just ran one day last year but we can run Sat and Sun if we want and it's a lot more track time for less $ than RTTC in comparison.

Lets try and keep anybody interested in going in the "Buttonwillow RSVP" thread. That way we can work on a group discount.

Thanks
