Had a great time! Definitely worth it.
I will speak to you at some point to get more info on SCCA.
I used to be licensed through the Fairfield County Sports Car club and did some AutoX back about 10 - 12 years ago. Didn't do to badly until my car nearly broke in half.. Well, the rear half nearly came off. 89 Lynx, set up with all GT parts and some minor tweaking to the motor had me sitting in the street prepared division, as a novice driver. I took 2nd in my first time out.
Unfortunately, it was my daily driver and after only a few races, I ended up in another daily, due to aforementioned issue, and didn't race that car.
Been out of racing ever since.
Looked over your site and it looks very appealing.
I'm sure I will be using it over the summer.
Thank you Terry! Sounds rather appealing.. Much comfier than the air mattress in the back of my Land Cruiser. I'll be up there this weekend for the launch/luncheon of the righthanders club. I may stop by and say hi and check out the Bunkhouse out the Meadow House.
Hallo Terry-Thank you for the invitation. The track looks really wonderful. Maybe I come once, however, without car. The last time he was kept back by the customs for three months, until he was back in Switzerland! Best regards Hans
Terry-whenever I get a minute-I'll post a pix-after I replace the transmission, rebuild the generator and finish with our friend JCF-also review the printer's proof of the next kid's book-market OMR and...did I forget anything??
Terry, Thank you for the invitation. My wife & I would certainly like to come up to Lime Rock & stay with you to watch during a race weekend. You also mentioned Target shooting ?? Charles and I do that at the range near Waterbury - rifle & pistol. I am going to try and get to the lunch on Tuesday - hope to see you there!! Peter
