      No. Magstar is not a trackHQ member. If we want to be honest and open about all this, I think Billy and Charles are HQ members and I hope we can get them to the event. Magstar, who is a complete maniac, fast but won't even put a rollbar, racing set and harness in his Z06, is not a member here. Plus he would have no idea how to drive an Evo.

        of course. it seem you are limiting this to Miata drivers anyway.

        Billy, Charles, Emilio, Burgoon, Richard, Sonny are all present or ex Miata drivers.

            I'm not doing anything, this is Manly's gig, I am just throwing my opinions around (as usual).

            And I can't help it if all the fast guys (and Richard ) have the good sense to drive the best value track car on the planet.

            I will say though, that GreyFocus seems more than a little hungry for this.

              Yeah, I know, but as soon as you said you want to buy a new Mustang, everyone wrote you off as a complete moron. j/k

                Nice. Hope you drive your 3/8 mile dirt track car into the porta potty.

                        my point is SCCA/NASA/SV Challenges schedule will prevent a lot from showing up if it conflicts with those dates. Most Trackhq'ers run in one of those.

                          That would be worth it for the story by itself, let alone the photos!

                            Then let's pick a date that works for track HQ members. I assume that everyone here is capable of going to Chuckwalla Valley Raceway and checking their event calendar, so we can pick a date that works for everyone here, as well as for the magazine challengers. William, sometimes I think you are a "GirlieMan".
