Anyone going to the 25 hours at Thunderhill

If the stars align, I hope to get to the Hill on Saturday for a bit. I want to catch some racing but hope to catch some Ca SL-C owners as well to pick their brains and see their cars..... No, I won't be that guy, bugging the crap out of a race team with stupid questions (I always hate that when I'm race focused) But would love to see some street SL-C's that make the trip . Anyone planning on going?
Jim

Re: Anyone going to the 25 hours at Thunderhill

I am, and I think Rob is going with me. Last year we were there at the start,11am, and stayed until we got tired at about 9:30 pm. The weather will be a factor.

Neither of use have a car (complete) to bring yet. But you are welcome to drop by and see mine anytime we can work it out.

Re: Anyone going to the 25 hours at Thunderhill

Hi Jim
As far as I know there are no street ready SLCs in the Western States. So I'd say you probably will not see one at the track. SLC owners? Now that is a different story, you should see at least two if I have my math correct.

(race ready - there is at least one and it is entered in the event)

Weather is a factor for me too.... Sounds like if I get my act together I could be the first street SL-C in Cali, Ha ha ha.. To bad I don't plan to get an SL-C in my garage until July-Aug and on the road by June 2013.
If wishes were horses, dreamers would ride.....
Hope to cath up with you guys at the hill. Shoot me a PM sometime this week and swap cell#'s so we can hook up.
Jim

Re: Anyone going to the 25 hours at Thunderhill

There's a chance that I can make it. I'd love to come up again and see you Cali guys again. I had a great time last year and I really want to go again.

Edit: Weather looks like it will be great this weekend!

I may make it up there again. I won't know until the morning of though. Howard's wife asked me to go to keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn't eat anymore pie up there this year

Well, my wife and kids have voted to get a Christmas tree and decorate the house Sat, so if I make it, it will be late Sat afternoon. Someone please shoot and post some pictures.

How's your progress coming Artgirl? Any closer to getting an SL-C on the street? I'm hoping to place my order by June so I have a long way to catch up....

Is #18 running in the race? I haven't seen it in any of the pictures or live video.
