I plan on making an event a Thunderhill sometime in the near future, but the 24th is just too soon for me (not to mention things are extremely busy at work).

Good luck with your day though. Hopefully you get more interest than my Streets of Willow Springs post has so far.

i've been trying to get cars to come out and play for a few years now,but no takers.willow springs must be ten hours away,my trailer/tow rig remain untested and i don't won't to get so far from home on it's big test run.t'hill is about 2 hours for me.don't forget there is only a very small handfull of pt cars on the west coast that run,so the pool of potential participants is rather small.post your results and your next track day and i'll do my best to show up.assuming things go well with the new motor.i frankly rate my chaces of a big kablooey at 50-50.not too happy with the build quality.i did pull it about 25 times on the dyno,but let's see what happens once the oil starts sloshing around.

After SOWS the next date will probably be in early '05, and at Laguna Seca. Some friends and I are trying to organize a get-together at the next SpeedVentures event up there.

It's expensive though, count on $350+ for a single day.

The Hotchkis day sounds tempting... we'll have to see how things (most notably my work schedule) work out.
