Going to Racing School for my Birthday...

I'm so beyond excited! I am attending Phase I and Phase II of the Evolution Autocross & Driving school in Roseville Minnesota September 24th-25th. From the other SCCA guys who have attended, apparently it's like getting 5 years of experience in a single weekend.

Class is already full as far as I know (may have 1 spot left), and I just barely got in.

12 students, 2 instructors. Both instructors are multi-time national champions, and they work with you intensely all day. I will be driving my own car too, so I will be able to apply everything directly. It only cost me $225 a day, and that buys training from 8-5 both days and a nice lunch.

So for less than the cost of dampers, I am going to be much much faster in anything I drive.

I'm going to take my camera and my in-car camera mount and try to get as much good stuff taped as I possibly can.

I will so rule G Stock!

Your sig now just reminds me of my friend back home. Melanie likes boys and girls, and has a big thing for Angelina. There's just nothing like watching one of the most physically beautiful girls I have ever seen in the flesh get all hot 'n horny over one of the most beautiful women I have seen on film...

Too bad we were so completely in the "Friend Zone".

That is so awesome Aaron! I bet that's going to be a ton of fun. Write down notes for me!

Hey, where do you usually go to AutoX nowadays? There aren't too many events in Saylorville late in the year, so do you go to Waterloo often? Let me know because I always feel left out when I go to an AutoX with no one to chat with.

Cheers!

I didn't know you were in friggin Mt. Vernon! I went to Cornell...
We just had an even down at the Knoxville Raceway (absolutely awesome, best race I have had in months. Had the best FWD time overall if you ignore my 1 cone on that run...) and there's the "MAMA SAM" challenge at Waterloo next weekend. Great Falls Region vs. Iowa Region vs. DMVR on a Nationals course!
Of course, I cannot go to that. I have to spend at least 1 weekend not racing this month or my wife will kill me.
But I will be up there on 9/11, and it'd be great to have you out there. PM me or write me at lehmermotorsport@hotmail.com...
