    To qualify now for local meets, a driver must already be a member of the SCCA.
    A little misinformed?
    Ever think about how much of your free time is spent in a parking lot?

    Yeah I thought so too.

    Although there aren't too many stories written about us at the Q perhaps the region should consider putting a press packet together.

    Yeah, but that's good misinformation. Its not going to stop people from coming and checking it out, but you can quickly get in trouble if the article said "all you need is a driver's licence".

    Many drivers competing in more than one class? And, because she clipped a cone, Leslie finished in the Street Touring Sport class?

    Goodness, this guy got more facts wrong than he got right. I've found journalism to be highly inaccurate whenever I know about the subject in question. When journalists can't come close to getting local stories right, it makes me wonder how wrong their articles about international news, business and politics are.

    Didn't you know, if I hadn't hit a cone I would have finished in Super Stock!

    I have read the article but I guess there should be some more content in it.This will really generate interest among the viewers of these thread and can create more interest to it.Rather its good enough but try an add something more to it.

    Probably a bot...BAN!

    Absolutely a bot. His other posts are similar. I know Randy is watching him, but he seems a friendly, innocuous sort of bot.
    'Go slow to go fast' they say'. Heh. Trust me...... when it comes down to the fast ones? They go fast to go fast.
