Green is good! Hey Ilya, emailed you the tech inspection sheet. REDRUM
We should caravan up there and find a decent motel to stay at. Anyone been there and know the area? Craig and Marc are out of town and will probably help when they return. Don't be such a girly man, show your stuff and track your car the way it was meant to. I will be taking my 97T and cruising it around the track at modest speeds. Definitely not going to go [email protected] out. Just want to learn how to drive my car better and have an instructor teach me right from wrong. I can't learn THAT on the streets. (and shouldn't). This would be a good time to meet other NSX's owners too.

Just spoke with the Inn of Lancaster for discounts on rooms. If you mention that you will be attending Willow Springs for the weekend, the rates will drop from 78-88 per night to an amazing 58 per night! This includes a continental breakfast, pick either 1 or 2 Queen beds in the room. Phone number is 800-406-0466. http://hotelsandmore.com/ca/3342.htm
and check out Inn of Lancaster (ignore those rates) Any questions? Feel free to email myself or post. Thanks, John
BTW I will be just cruising around the track, if racing is not your thing, stay with me.

Just received my confirmation for the event. I spoke with the cordinator and he said that there are 9 NSX'ers going including myself. Looks like we have Randy, Frank, Peter, Steve, Paul, Chris, Marc, Dan and myself. I have reservations at the Inn of Lancaster and plan on staying Friday and Saturday night(8 a.m. class on Sat.), anyone else staying there? Caravan?
