12th Annual CalCoastal NSX Canyon Drive - A NOT To Be Missed Event!

sorry for the crappy music for the first part but was a bit distracted with the corners and all....

(video got a bit blown out during the upload so trying to tweak them a bit but still have another 8hrs or so of converting....watch in 1080!)

Once again, another great CalCoastal NSX Drive! I had a blast and my brother, Nate did too. BIG BIG Thank You's to Scott, John, Tina, all the sponsors and HPD for putting together this drive and tour of the HPD facility. It really was wonderful to see old faces and meet new ones. Hope everyone got home safely and I cannot wait for next years event! :)
Fun-filled day driving the canyons and finishing off with a very special surprise tour and lunch at the HPD facility (someone must have really pulled some strings). So much gratitude for John, Tina, Scott, the HPD crew, and all the sponsors for making this event so memorable. Hats off to you and to all those who participated!
@ dustthisnsx...
JC (yellow twin-turbo in front of you) and I were having a fun dicing with you all day! Thanks for capturing it on video!:biggrin:

(Did you get the tunnel on video?)

Are you sure that's UFO? I thought UFO is Mike.

I was following JC and UFO for the second part, and I forgot JC's car is twin turbo. That clears some of my confusion... lol

UFO (Mike) was on the drive but not the tour guide. The tour guide was on the drive with his little girl. His name is Uwe.
Sorry for the late reply but had to jump on a plane right after the drive and still in Phoenix now.

Thanks to Scott, John and Tina for putting on another great drive and event. And thanks to HPD for hosting the event. Looking forward to next years drive/event:biggrin:

Will post some pics when I get back home.
yes defiantly my kind of pace :biggrin: well, for all seasons tires that is :biggrin::biggrin:

i'll pm the whole 5 second tunnel clip as the record button was double tapped

Thank you!!!

A little late to respond here.
Thank you to ALL the organizers responsible for planning this.

Thank you to all the group leaders and sweepers for keeping the flow to handle these many NSXs:eek:

This was our first Cal Coastal drive and we had such a blast.
The surprised visit to HPD was such a treat.

Thank you for raffles also.
Seems like everyone there won something:smile:

Can't wait for next year:cool:

I got the ticket, and although it was a huge bummer, the drive itself was great, thanks everyone for setting it up.

Any tips on fighting the ticket would be awesome. The officer didn't have my speed locked into his radar gun, so hopefully that will help.

As an update, I did a trial by written declaration and my ticket was dismissed! What an awesome feeling. Thanks again for all of the support and words of encouragement!
