    It is time again.

    D(ick) Shearer has asked me to be the proxy for MINI5280 participation in the June 27 Lotus lapping day.

    This will be held at HPR Byers, Colorado.

    If you interested, I have the registration packets in email format, so contact me at don.suiter (@) gmail (dot) com.

    A full day of lapping with Lotus, this event has limited spots so send in the information early.

    Cost: $125

    You will need a tech. inspection at the track, before going on track.

    Make out the inspection form before you come to the track.

    Organizer is John Arnold of the Lotus Club.

    The schedule may change as conditions warrant or as participants request. For first time drivers, there will be driving instructors available for track familiarization and driving instruction.

    I really enjoyed the after-lunch sessions when the MINIs ran with the Lotus Elise's and Exige's.

    A few weeks ago, I stopped by Ferrari Denver and it was mentioned that Bill S. plans on bringing a few Ferrari's out. I suspect the Lamborghini folks will be out too.

    I plan on being at track early then leave early after lunch or I may hang until 4:30 of so.
