Open Track Event - NOV 16

this appeared in my email - since I'm not sure of the distribution - I'll post it here for those interested in Track Events - I know also there's a Hunpin event coming December (3?).
Subj: [PCA GGR] Thunderhill open track day

> Are you an experienced track driver or track junkie?
> Are you tired of being limited to four 20 minute run sessions in a day?
> Does a full day of virtually unlimited track time sound appealing?
> Well, we have reserved Thunderhill Raceway in Willows California
> ( for just such a day on Friday November 16,
> 2001. This will be a full day of open lapping. We are looking to limit
> attendance to only 40 cars total (multiple drivers per car are OK). This
> will result in a lot of open track and tons of track time for
> everyone. And
> hey, by November the temperature should even be tolerable at Thunderhill.
> This event will be run in the spirit of most open track events (such as
> Shelby club, Green Flag, NASA HPDE, etc.) with a focus on fun and safety.
> As usual - This is not a race!
> Primary recruitment for this event will be the bay area Porsche community
> and BMW community.
