Just saved me $50. Thanks!

Most of the Southern CA 944 spec cars switched to NASA several years ago. A few still turn up at POC and PCA events but not in the numbers they used to.

If you have a spare SPB I'll come race it - sold mine though

Here is a decent lap from a car kind of like yours:

Thank You Scott-
Been out of the country so haven't had a chance to watch this yet, but your Sear's video was very helpful last year.

I already paid for the Friday test day so will have to try to get that $50 x 2 back from them!

What a fun track- we had no idea. Several places to pass, smooth track surface, fully paved paddock and very nice facility-we'll certainly go back.
I was sidelined Friday with a corrupted map and Thank You to Rich at Jerry Woods- drove to Sear's Point and borrowed a Motec cable that we forgot to bring and had a new map installed by Friday's end. Got one session Friday before closing time.
I had some great racing with a GTD car and Kim was in a big battle with several GT3 cars- not a big field, but seems like mostly everyone was in a race.
Thanks to GGR for a great event!

Great seeing you, Paul and Kim. Come back anytime. There were only 11 of us, but the SPBs had a blast this wknd. SPB track record was broken three times.

We're racing Buttonwillow in May, Laguna and Sears Pt in June, then back at TH in September.

We missed you at Sears Point. We need to work on not having competing events the same weekend as I think it would have been more fun if we were all at the same place.

Unfortunately TH in Sept is the same weekend as Road America (a fabulous race weekend). Maybe we can get more folk from CA (and certainly CO) out to Miller in mid-Sept. I plan on doing that race again this year. And we have a PRC event at Sears Point the second weekend in Sept - So great fun doing Road America, then Sears Point, then Miller.

Tim, thanks for your tips about the track- certainly helped us!
We're going to try for Laguna Seca and Sear's Point in June, and that may be it for the year. Would really like to get back to Rd America with Tom, but Kim's horse show schedule keeps getting in the way.
Some fast. level-headed drivers out West!

Was great trying to reel in that blue beast. Look forward to seeing you out there again.

Thunderhill is an awesome track! I like it second in the state only to Sears Point. It's only problem is that it is in the middle of nowhere. That could be a positive too!

Yet there was still a 103 db limit-there weren't even any cows around to disturb! I had to short shift at the exit of 15.
