This is always a fantastic event! Race cars, sports cars, historic cars, vendor booths, booth girls, food trucks, and a lot more. My wife loves doing the lunch time parade laps.

I'll be there racing (already registered) so please be sure to stop by and say hi.

Maybe we can plan a 986Forum meet up...

80 cars are already registered for the Club races! Everything from 911 Cup cars to G-series 911's to 944's to Boxster's (and at least one 914).

I'll visit racers row and find you guys.

Jay #990 and Cuda #420?

Maybe I'll wear my shocking blue SD Porsche Performance driving school shirt so you guys can recognize me and say hi, in case I wander blindly past you.

I'm sure I'll recognize Tom, Topless Dan and his brother Dave although its been a couple years.

Ray

But I'll probably drive the Jӓger4Smobile and park it in the corral.

I'll be there on Saturday.

I'll do the track parade but how can you resist the temptation to go fast when stuck behind a pace car?

And if someone were to shoot past the pace car does that mean there will be a chase and real race

Just kidding ... I think

So... Friday night 7ish there will be an informal garage band jam session with a few Porsche types. Some drankin and carrying on may be involved as well. You guys are all invited to join in the fun. Garage #2 I believe, or wherever the sound of blues guitar is emanating.

Beyond that, Dan and I will have our rig out there and lotsa folks tend to hang out after track cold. We will be instructing in the TT so our schedule gets pretty full during the day. Come by and say hi!

We get final assignments when we receive our credential packets. It's Jay's first visit to the Roval so I expect he will be Yellow. I expect to be Orange, and Danny will probably be in Red running 1:45 laps with the GT3 Cup Cars in his CC12 "It's an S" Frankencayman. HMOG

I was there last Sat for a NASCAR ride along
It was the Oval, so I guess that doesn't count
It's gonna be a lot more fun driving the roval
Just fitted a set of YellowStuff and bedded them today so I am ready to go

Hopefully it won't be too wet this weekend
