and of course now the coupe is in orange county and the lotus is in portland. the elise i'd definitely have to trailer, it's not a car for a 1000+ mile roundtrip. the coupe i might bring up from down south, depending... maybe if we can get an LA group together it would be more fun to travel. the track is definitely a blast, even when you don't know it that well.

yeah, practice makes perfect :) of course my ability has a definite limit to it, so there's only so far i can take it and stay in one piece... i really need to get used to the coupe again, maybe do a couple a/x. the lotus is very different. yesterday i was watching qualifying for ALMS at PIR, and my best time in the elise would have put me 5th on the grid for speedvision touring cars, about 1 sec behind Bill Auberlen's qualifying time and ahead of most realtime racing acuras... but i've run at PIR a LOT (still working on some turns though), and i'm sure any of those guys could still run the lotus a few seconds quicker. there's a not-too-fast ferrari f355 in the GT class, i'll have to try and see what his times are...

anyway, hope to see you at one of the california events one of these days! (are you into bikes at all? i'm running my 900sp at seca on the 22nd).
