So who else is going? Anyone want to meet up Sat AM and caravan in? I live right up the road from the track so I'm very familiar with the area.

I'm going. Not sure whether I'm bringing the Miata or not, or what time I plan on arriving, but I'll be there.

No, not that dog. If that dog bit me I'd probably be dead.

I think I'm going. Had build a filler pipe for the turbo (since the turbine housing needs to be clearanced). It works but rubs somewhere, but should get me there. Ben LE ya gotta drive the Miata- it's a Mazda weekend.

I don't know what everyone looks like but I think you guys have seen me in one picture or another on here. I'll look for... ok i have no idea what I'll look for but I will probably be at the FM install thing so I'll look for the guy with a dog bite on his face. (I've been bitten in the face, it sucks.)
We're not leaving stockbridge till like 8 or so maybe 9 depending on when the brandy wears off.

Just got back- hanging at the GRM pub.
Saw Ben, Scott and Mike. Didn't see Chad or Ben LE. I've got a butt load off photos including some shots of the stang that tagged the inside of the bridge wall. Will post that stuff up next week when I go thru it.

I was there, saw Ben. I saw Rob, but he was chatting it up with some other guys after the MX-5 cup race, so I didn't but in

Stan was also there. And during one of the touring laps someone standing at the fence around turn 5 or so yelled my name, but I couldn't recognize them.

I sneaked my car down to the lower paddock and parked it right by the $$$ mazda race cars.

I was there with my brother today. Took some pics of the "$$$ mazda race cars" watched a few races. Overall a good time.
