Stop watching so they don't choke then!

Are you referring to the 3 Balls event? I think that's this weekend? It sounded good RIGHT up to the part where they'll run the course backwards.

I can hardly believe that the 'Bogie folks would allow that. Its a foolish thing to do really. Imagine cooking the "Jacques" corner backwards and meeting that concrete wall hard? Fun.

Maybe I read it wrong, but I didn't re-read it because I deleted the email as soon as I saw that part. :p

From everything I heard, they aren't allowed to run Bogie backwards for safety reasons...

I did the 3-balls event last year - great group of people with awesome cars, awesome BBQ, lots of fun.

The friday event is a Patrick Cheng/Midnight Runs evening event that goes from 5-7pm for experienced lappers only. It's only $125, but still too much for me right now. I'm already registered for the MCO day on Sept 6 though

Makes sense. The MR lapping evenings look like a great deal. I need more track time before I take the chance out there though.

See you Saturday! (PS, should I count on the numbers being in, or should I buy more blue tape?)

No problem. Put them on the back burner for now. I fear they might not get used much this year anyway, since I see the next autox events coincide with things I've already committed to.

As it turns out, I won't be there on the 6th so this is my last ditch effort to get some quality seat time before the season runs out.

J, I wouldn't worry about going out alone. There are tons of people going to help out. I may get a quick refresher ride before jumping in alone. For the price, it can't be beat.

3 balls sounds kind of nuts...

Maybe next year I can try my hand at auto-x. Always wanted to...

52.8 I believe was my best time. Same as last time, 5 seconds off the "fast" pace so I'd say I got all I could out of the car.
