    Spokane and NWMS

    Just wanted to say thanks for the great hospitality in Spokane from a small number of volunteers who worked really hard to put on a great event. I was born and raised in Spokane and try to support their race whenever I am able. There is really a small town friendliness at that race that is a...

    [For Sale] Anyone looking for a project?

    Those that know me can vouch that I am a bit of a car hoarder but I have finally run out of room for all of my projects. In order to keep them all straight I have found it expedient to give each of my cars an appropriate name. I have been slowly working on a C4 Corvette project in the back of...

    Parking at the Ridge!

    We are currently sitting at somewhere around 160 1st entries so that would lead me to believe that is approximately the number of paddock spots that will be needed. Needless to say, that is a LOT considering the amount of pavement available. My setup last year had about 100 individual pit...

    The sensation of speed ...

    Somewhat off topic, but we race because we like to walk at least a tiny bit out on the edge where normal people don't go. I caught this at random and it impressed me as several steps farther out, with perhaps one foot dangling in space. (Favorite is the guy who stands dead center under the...

    Hitler finds out that the SCCA has suspended the 2.5 rule.

    I don't know if anyone else gets amusement from all of the "Hitler finds out ...." resubtitling that has appeared on the internet. It's been done for nearly every imaginable subject. I just thought this one weas particularly humorous. Caution - strong language...

    Discussion of sports racers and "sedans" on track simultaneously

    [Admin's note: I moved several posts about this subject out of the thread for the Cascade enduro.] Hmmm .. can't be a sport racer entry can there? Cascade is philosophically opposed to them participating when sedans are present........ (Asbestos undergarments snugged up tight and hunkered...
