Awesome turnout! It would be great if one of you could report about the race. Maybe a link to some videos?

John, I'll try to put together some sort of update during the weekend.

Mike, you might want to turn down the boost a little bit...

Well, the GT-3 entry total is currently at 10 and with Mike Lewis promising we will have 11 (see above), this should be a good race weekend.

Chuck, call Joe and offer him a rental deal he can't pass up!

well.. not really. my comment was in reference to guy's telling me to dial down boost and my love for the movie spinal tap.

an interesting note though is that with current entries of 303, a majors race that didnt even exist last year is set to be the largest race in the scca this year with exception of the runoffs. bigger than sebring or june sprints at this point. you can look at that in a number of ways...

I knew I should've put one of those "smilies" next to my comment.
