    Team 949racing E1 is 1 of 4 teams featured. You will be seeing TRACKHQ stickers. Looking forward to it.

    Funny thing is: last year's show also featured 4 teams, where all of them had major mechanicals, some didn't finish the race. We were worried about bad juju for being featured. Turned out this year, 3 of the 4 teams featured won their respective classes. What's the chance of that !!!

    You should invite Astraist to narrate the documentary. And then to follow it by leading a discussion on topics like panoramic mirrors, steering technique, and whatever else his heart desires. I, for one, miss him.

    Well organizing a restaurant to host us is proving more difficult than I anticipated. No restaurant will give us our own room with screen and sound. Room yes, but no screen. Screen yes, but no sound.

    So an alternate plan is moving my directv rcvr to the shop and playing it back over the 42" screens we have here. Dinner at BJ's Pizza first then video. Or better yet we just bring Pizza and beer to the shop.
    Anyone interested in that?

    Ditto.

    Kudos to Emilio for providing all of the ingredients for a great evening. What a champ!

    btw: How 'bout a video of a winner-take-all arm wrestling competition? Big guys almost always win, of course, but it could be good viewing onTrackHq.

    As a bonus we'll have the two sim rigs set up for head to head battles in GT5. Probably rFactor.

    I have Australian GP practice 1&2 on DVR. F1 qual will broadcast at 11pm, an hour after Survive the 25.

    First beer: I'm faster in the sim
    Second beer: I think I'm faster in the sim but I'm slower. I do have more fun that the first beer.
    Third beer: I begin to suck a lot and think it's really funny.
