Second time was in the rain, crossing dry line with wheel slightly turned, lost back end of 996 on (worn sport cups) into tires on outside exit of 3.
Lots learned from these sharp bites!

Yep, it's that kind of track.....but there's nothing like the vibe after a day there when you were fast and your car is straight

Eleven great days there last year, and hopefully more of same to come

Come back. There are several good events to join in even if you donít have a car here.

Send out the word with an event youíre interested in and Iím certain that someone will be there with a drive.

I know DriveTeq has cars to rent for the day and I'm pretty sure other groups do too.

I was never an Alonso fan until recently....always thought of him as a whiner. How he's handled the Honda debacle (with class) and his willingness/desire to race "outside the F1 box" has me really rooting for him. He's not approaching any of this new stuff with a "I'm a two time F1 champion, bow down to me"...more like "Hey guys, this is sooo cool! I get to race cool stuff..show me how!"

Gotta respect the humbleness he's shown.

He certainly seems to be enjoying it all...

Agree 100%
However i started liking him when he joined Ferrari. Since then i have been a fan.
Looking back, of the top drivers currently in F1, he's the least whiner. IMO.
His commentary while driving should win him awards alone.
