Yah, I used to post the info for the Friday night club in the Race monthly threads but no one showed interest so I stopped. Don't know about this Targa BC though, maybe I'll have to look it up

Here it is. http://www.targacanadawest.com/

They have some really reasonable bottom classes where it's basically stock cars with helmets and a first aid kit and you can run. It's bracket racing so you need to average a fairly laid back speed. Of course if it's raining and twisty that may not be that laid back.

Just got back from the NW Alfa Club Bremerton performance driving day. It was excellent. The car and the skills really came together today. The Z1 star specs are excellent with the suspension setup. I was really able pound through the s curves. With the new fuel pump I could left tern as long as I wanted as hard as I wanted.

So I don't think I'm going to have time to put together an April thread until this weekend, but I seem to remember there being events that first weekend (April 2nd-4th)... I think it was Alfa and BMW?

Next Porsche Skills day is April 17th and I think I'm going to be bringing a lot of people... should be a good time

Just not enough hours in the day! I'm slammed at work and at home. My car habit is having to take a backseat
