Is there a schedule up somewhere? I looked on the site and may have overlooked but didn't see it.

I might or might not be going. Work is an issue...Let me know if you are short of either classroom people (which I prefer doing) or need instructors.

Darren will likely do the C/D class, I haven't asked Darren and Steve who they prefer for B class. I'll send them a quick email and find out, either way, can you check and see if you're available to help?

Appreciate it.

Dan - I can't get coverage at work so I think I'm stuck sitting this one out unfortunately. We are really short staffed...I'm very sorry but I know you will have an outstanding school!

I go to other events and believe me you dont want to be one of those guys in the beginner or intermediate groups that have no vision or have any idea what is happening around them. If anything, you will learn what to focus on and you will learn how to properly conduct yourself on a track. Last week i was in a string of traffic because the guy in front had no idea there were 5 cars behind him.

Plus these events allow you to get better and work on other things when going to other track events instead of just aimlessly going out there weekend after weekend thinking hmmmm what am i doing wrong?

Nope. I just repaint my front bumper every 4-5 years.

I'm stoked to see there are a good number of F30s coming out. I'm actually going to get a hotel near Fontana tomorrow night so I don't have to get up too early and deal with traffic on Fri morning.
