Porsche day - Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, CA

Met a few more fellow forum 986 drivers at the races.

Great bunch of guys.

Maybe got their alias here wrong but Topless, TStone, Mini-T, and a few more that I can't recall their alias.

I forgot my camera at home and had to use the iphone so forgive the quality.

Turn up your volume and enjoy the music.

Hey, it was great to meet up and hang out for awhile! You can see me puling out onto the track at 1:37 in your video.

Yes, i enjoyed chatting too. Learned a fair bit as well, very interesting stuff and the racing is exciting.

I'll have to ease my way into some DE's over the course of this next year. It looks like too much fun to just spectate.

I got you 905? and Mini-T ???, plus Topless 421 and his brother 129 in the other sections.

I noticed 129 & 421 were running together most of the race but in the last few laps 421 dropped way back, and looked like he went wide into the dirt late in the race on the hairpin. Seems like he had brake problems?

I need to find a better vantage point for watching the infield part of the course. Cant see much from the infields stands.

Nice vid, thanks Ray!

As you can see from my sig, I am #129. My car decided to drink more than it's share of oil due to a failed AOS so she was a little off her game and only ran 1 session Sunday. Looks like a simple fix though. My AOS is original from 1998 so I guess I got my monies worth.

Little "t" is 909 and won Sprint Race #1 and #2 by running away from the entire field.

I posted a video from Sunday's Sprint race in the "Spec Boxster Build" thread.
