Also we are allowing photographers to sign up for the event. However I only have three spots open that are first come first serve (in addition to the track photographers)

Requirements:

Message me your name and the name of your spotter.

Obtain safety vests (like the construction workers wear)- from lowes or home depot

Sign photographer waiver and attend meeting at the event.

Follow all safety guidelines presented.

(sorry guys you will still have to pay the gate fee)

I have some sweet ideas for video though. I think you guys will like it.

Yes. I don't think there is going to be any clear cut time between practice and school, but competition doesn't start until 1. So that will give plenty of time for the noobs to learn and the "pros" to practice with breaks for the grippers to run.

30 psi in the front and 36 psi in the rear should be good enough.

Renee has a fresh head gasket & swapped in some altima fans thanks to Pete. Kim's lending extra set of wheels to drift on. I really hope she doesn't break. :-/ Going to take it easy with her, probably not many runs or back to back laps. So when I'm not driving I'll be more than happy to teach.
