    Yeah like thats gonna happen...

    Better chance of seeing a leprechaun leading a unicorn around.

    Perfect chance there Lynn to get that MINI that has been off jackstands for months out in the wild. Whats the excuse this time?

    All right, our fearless leader's short stick poking notwithstanding, I will kill this thread the second I sense the crap getting near the fan.

    All I can say, is I'm first on the list to go for a ride, and I can't wait!!! I've done laps with amateurs in slower cars, and I left bruised from banging around on the roll cage in the harness. Funny thing is, the faster the ride, the more I know my car can handle to track! Can't wait - and no I won't scream like a girl! But I might collapse when I get out of the car :D

    We have about 90 entries (ALL MINI/Minis) and several coaches/instructors. Looks like a full grid for all run groups. Weather forecast for Sunny, Highs 57F, no rain. Plenty of vendors and sponsors and some special guests. We should get 5ea 20-minute sessions + parade laps and demo rides. Still time to register!

    There's three of us from the Clovis area on our way... Hoping maybe more MCM folks will get fired-up, but not sure. We can't wait for the FUN to begin.

    Cya-all Saturday! :beer
