Hmm, I do have a couple connections for Lemons teams.

We are having a planning meeting in a couple weeks. I will see what they are interested in doing.

And now with more pole/poll/pull.

Oh yeah, and you have a decision...none of the above events also includes bacon, so you must make a very tough decision.

My brain almost exploded. Too many choices. I vote for an Autocross in the pits section of Thunderhill while also running a track day. That way, we can race non-stop.

You think any of the cars on this board could handle that much abuse in one day? lol

Maybe we could cook some bacon on someone's exhaust while we're at it??

The last Thunderhill in my orange 242 I did my sessions and took people on rides as an "instructor" in all of the other sessions. I went through 2.5 tanks of fuel.

Wouldn't be able to do that in it's current condition though.

244 has handled more

I think regardless go-karts should be added to whatever we do, track day, autox, etc. That way we could all have something to thrash on and race each other in something more evenly matched

Okay, maybe you two Pat's are above the norm. I think my stuff would hold together, dunno about some of the other rides around here. lol

Go karts can be arranged either way, got a couple places in town. BTW Pat, it's hilarious seeing someone tall fit into them...saw Logan in one last year. lol

Partially cooked a chicken on a b230ft at a lemons race, so anything is possible

Of course it was partially cooked. Should have fabbed a grille directly over the exhaust manifold/turbo hotside. Turn on every pit stop. Perfect.

Next time, make sure to include aluminum foil in your tool kit. It comes in handy for just such occasions..

being most of turbo broke's cars will fall apart for even an auto-x, karting might be better I guess...

Not to mention I'm not sure I'd want to be a corner worker in a sea of all turbobrickers....

I hadn't even thought about that. I'm used to corner working with experienced drivers. That does sound scary.

Glad you're posting this so far in advance so I can get a cheap flight to SFO and just drive around the bay area for a few days and never say hello.

We are working on stuff behind the scenes, hopefully have more info after we meet up next saturday.

I know TB is the land of flakes, but if we can pull off an autox, we will absolutely need some volunteers for course setup, takedown, and cone management. In previous years we tried having group A manage cones for group B and vice versa except 2/3 of group A left before group B even hit the track. That sucked for many of us that had to work both groups.
