Signed up and ready to go!
Hopefully the weather will hold.

Ahem, I just noticed, I don't have a GT2/3, only a 951...

At least you have a car, my car developed a tranny issue at my last DE on Dec. 29th that requires a tear down, so no GT3 for the event.

What a bad end of the year present

My 951 sits in Italy, here in TX I have a S2000.

But looking for a 996 GT3, preferably Mk1. I bet on CotA it would be a blast.

Sir Himself, I would love to see some in car vid of you at COTA this weekend? Thanks a million for your help Sunday first session. I am starting to get the hang of it and really enjoyed the sessions after your coaching.

I'd planned to come by on Saturday to see everyone if I can make it fit my schedule. I'll be at the peak of my training for the Austin marathon that weekend, though, and tight for time.

Could always "run" out to the track and back.

Tom,

This is kinda what I was talking about - being ahead of the car and being able to adjust quickly. Watch it a few times, paying attention to the car, throttle and steering. You can get a GT3 pretty sideways and not loop it!

That is some pretty fancy hands work. You didn't tell me I needed to learn all that when you convinced me to convert from my tt to a GT3. LOL.
