The beginners is sold out, otherwise I'd do it in a heartbeat.

ATXGT3, thanks for posting the pics. We went to COTA yesterday also. We had hoped to be in our GT3, but with the weather that had been forecast for last Thursday when we drove over from Houston, we decided to come in my wife's Cayenne S. We parked just a couple of spots to the east of that black X5 in your 2nd photo.

Being in the Cayenne, we bagged doing the parade lap. Sounds like you guys had fun with it in your proper machines!

It was fun--shocked that we got them over 100MPH on 'parade lap' There was a damn Panamera that was holding the group of two cars in front (no passing) so I held back a little to get some good runs. Hooking down the front straight was just amazing. Let me know next time you're bringing your beast to COTA.

Speed Ventures an LA based HPDE company is hosting an event at COTA April 24-26. I'm signed up, would be cool to have other Rennlisters participating.

I'm signed up for the edge event, the speed ventures one day currently, and hope to make the PCA run. Trying to workout wether I'll trailer the car from Dallas or drive it. Looking forward to it! Cheers!

Yes, definitely. I used to live in San Antonio from 1988-1994 but things have changed quite a bit. A buddy lives near Barton Creek but I haven't visited him since 2007. I'm really looking forward to the visit and COTA! The track just looks magnificent.

Speed Ventures is a good outfit, I've ran with them six times.

Hey Paul,

Thank you, your GT3 was looking good as well...I need to clean my wheels ha! Looking forward to the next time for sure!

I have the Sharkwerks bypass and the Cargraphic 100mm "perforated" black tips. I left the valves plugged and really enjoy the ability to be semi-mild around town and still have it sound even more awesome when you are living in the higher RPMs ("sport exhaust" button always on of course). Highly recommend the bypass, and I think the Cargraphic tips look the best but that is a personal thing (tip of the hat to Sam from TX for modeling those early in the game!).

-Sean
