Hey psycho, looking forward to racing with you again. Not a lot of F201's today, just a handful. Lots of Mini's, and sedans. Weather is cool in the morning with the fog burning off in the afternoon. In the 80's in the afternoon. It's like being at a family reunion seeing everyone from across the nation again. I love the TCS.

Thumbs up

Steve,
I have been here on the coast and while I have my laptop, I have not had an internet connection till now, I heard about your condition and wish you a speedy recovery. It's a bummer that you can't be here. I saw Bruce at the track this afternoon and he said that things are under control, which is good to hear. Don't bum too hard about the race, theres always next year, but I know the feeling from sitting on the sidelines last year. We will do a missing man formation on the grid for you.
Regards,
Brad

There's plenty of space guys. Not to worry. Tomorrow we'll have another tent up. All I ask is if you have a quite or semi quite portable generator, please bring it :-)

Brad,
It is really tearing me up inside that I couldn't make this year! but like you said "NEXT YEAR"
How are the new motors working I was curious if anybody has shown their hand on the Horsepower yet? Listen to Bruce he can dial your car very quickly if you let him? I hope you can bring the P1 Podium finish back to the east coast with you, I would like to see a east coast guy win it.
Keep me posted, I sure have a lot of time on my hands sitting here my finger shoved my *ss !!!!

Steve.

Good luck to all the racers and past chumps! Today is gonna be a blast.

As for updates: Yesterday was kind of difficult to tell what's going on but there were some drivers who were clearly on another planet in terms of lap times. We'll see if their times can hold up or if they'll get faster!

Congrats to all the winners and the guys who looked like they were having fun regardless of how they finished. It is always a great event to see guys get their game together.
