yep, time for the Boxsters to come out of hiding and get to some serious business.

my car is ready, is yours? are you?

this will be our first event back at Alameda in a year.

we will be using a different area than before. Make sure to check the GGR website for information on where we will be. We are actually on one of the main runways this year. So we are further north and east on the Naval base.

it is right next to the Oakland inner channel

runway #25

the contract from Alameda calls it runway 725. But if you go onto Google maps and zoom in, it is labeled as 25.

What ever the designation I know for sure that that is the area we are using...
it i just off the North end of Main St. on the base.

Gerry, what is the difference whether your car is classified in the correct AX group or FUN....

aren't you having "fun" either way?

Classing your car lets you see how you are doing against similar pointed cars.
How else are you going to judge whether you are improving or not.
This is not like doing a track DE day, and then returning to that same track at a latter date.
In AXing the course is different every time. So the only way to see how you are progressing is to compare to cars/drivers in your class.

we always want everyone to have "fun" no matter what their mindset.

this just gives you a way to guage your progress

and then some day you might get more serious about AX, all while still having big fun..

It actually gets more fun, the deeper you get into the whole competition aspect. You broaden you circle of competitors, meet new folks, and hone your skills even sharper.

the faster I go the funner it gets.

Sorry Dan... I was teasing.

The designation 725, probably means runway 07 & 25 - the 180 degree reciprocals. (depends on which way you aim at the runway).
