    Can't wait!

    For anyone interested in the track day, we usually only have a few participants so there are usually only a few cars at at time on the track. It's a good time to learn your car in a safe environment. Plus it's fun to go as fast as you want without worrying about traffic or getting a ticket. And isn't that one of the reasons we own these cars??

    Woke our car up form its winter slumber yesterday, working on getting things for the trip to TCC ready, trying to keep from packing up the farm.
    I have emailed Debra twice about TCC shirts and have had no response?? No other contact info was listed.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I'm surprised there is only 9 signed up for the track day. That would be a fantastic opportunity to play with the car.

    Your right...but the reason I don't is that last year when we participated in photo op Pace car/track event I found the track to be very bumpy!! I would not feel confident in putting the spurs to Magic Bus on that track.
    That's just my 2cents. Dallas seems to like it and tracks his Cobra every year.

    Charles,

    Which track do they use for this? Is it COTA?

    Ahh..Yes, with a stiffer suspension, the bumps would be a real deterrent. Could make for an off, which could certainly ruin your day.

    The Magic Bus looks great. A shame I have to live vicariously.
