Awesome! I've always wanted to drive the E around a track! Thx for planning/setting this up Jeff!
I've been dialed in since Jeff first presented the idea to me! ;-)OK, so I am the first one to buy in. I just hope not to get wrapped around the axle between now and then...
Got temporary Wheels and Grill. By the meat I hope to be current...
Chief, this sounds like it would be right up your alley....
Gene...not to worry, it will be more of a ceremonial lap as a group, versus an individual 'hot lap', which I really would have enjoyed. ;-)This sounds like fun but don't about know about driving a lap around the track.
Will we be required to wear helmets?
Hope not - Richelle won't want to get her hair all mussed up.
I'm sure all the local Camping Fools would be up for this.Gene...not to worry, it will be more of a ceremonial lap as a group, versus an individual 'hot lap', which I really would have enjoyed. ;-)
So tell Richelle she'll be fine and there won't be any helmets or mussed up hair involved. But there will be a hell of a lot of fun to be had by all. We really look forward to seeing all of the 'Camping Fools' there, as well as, other Element enthusiast. So hop in "Miss Ellie" and come on down! We're shooting for the type of turn out that we had at the Honda US Open of Surfing in 2008.
That's an EXCELLENT point, and we'll count on you to help us spread the WORD!!!I'm sure all the local Camping Fools would be up for this.
To get that many Elements (40 +) to attend - it's an absolute must to get the women owners involved!
Push the "female aspect" of this meet - Breast Cancer Awareness Night and the Women Only Demolition Derby!
This sounds like oodles of fun to me! :grin:
That's an EXCELLENT point, and we'll count on you to help us spread the WORD!!!
You are privileged and have the inside line and all of the 'under the radar' information...I've been dialed in since Jeff first presented the idea to me! ;-)
Chris...as a member of "The Usual Suspects" you already know that you are always dialed in! ;-)You are privileged and have the inside line and all of the 'under the radar' information...
DC...It would be sooooooo "AWESOME" to see you again!!! You are DEFINITELY an auxillary member of "The Usual Suspects!!!"I may have to try to attend this one, the chance of getting my E on the track would be awesome have plenty of time to plan.
Number one..."WELCOME to the EOC!!!" Secondly, we definitely look forward to meeting you and seeing you at this great event for a worthy cause!Okay, now this sounds great. Given our current schedule where I work, it's going to be hard to make it all the way down there from San Jose, but it's on my calendar.
For those of you who are worried about the parade lap, don't be! Driving on the track works the same way as driving anywhere else. They'll most certainly line everyone up someplace out of the way, and then when it's time they'll have a pace car lead everyone onto the track in a line, keeping speeds very reasonable.
Organizers, you should set some expectations.. I was a part of a parade lap at Laguna Seca with my company's car club (not in my rig), and one guy didn't get the memo. He passed a few cars on the front straight and then almost went off the track at turn 9! On a parade lap! What an idiot!
The track is not interested in what a magnificent driver you think you are.. They just want everyone to have a good, SAFE time.
May I suggest:
- No passing
- Keep up
- Have fun!
Hope to meet some of you there if I can get away from work!
Is it half of the '07 grill...? I can't quite see clearly what you did... It looks like that grill was modded to add another aftermarket lower grill to match... It's definitely unique...! Me likes...!...got me a nose job for the event, and my custom SC wheels will be ready by then too....
Please comment on the grille mod. Naturally, I like it a lot...
