How many Babblers are going to Infineon Oct 10 + 11

Hi,

how many of us will be at the GGR track days at Infineon Oct 10/11 ?
http://www.pca-ggr.org/node/1272
So far I see 11 Boxster registered

Maybe the ones of you who haven't registered want to take a tour to Napa Valley on either day, swing by at Infineon and see what track driving is all about, and maybe we'll see you at the next event...

besides coming by and seeing all the Porsches on Track...
you can also participate in "Taste of the Track"

you pay a small fee, $20 or so, and you find a helmet long sleeve shirt and long pants and you get to ride with a GGR Nationally Certified Instructor for an entire practice session (25-30 minutes) at speed....which around Sears (sorry Infineon) is under 2 minutes per lap.
so come by, see some Porsches running the way they were designed to be used, take some pics, and get some hot laps in some hot Porsches...

the Taste of the Track fees go entirely to a GGR Charity.

Track Days

I'll be attending the Ground School the evening of the ninth and the Saturday session. I'm really looking forward to learning more about my car, so see you all there.

I'll be at thunderhill oct 2 with trackmasters.... Only $90 for 70 minutes of track time in the afternoon. How about the GGR autocross being cancelled today?

Cool, welcome to the world of track-driving, which is even more addictive as A/X
My car # is 179, please come by and say Hi

See you in 2 weeks

I was not aware of the taste of the track. That sounds great I wasn't going to be able to put in a full day but a small taste sounds very appealing. Hope to be there!!

Regards,

James
