Counting down to Tri-O-Rama October 24-28

There's still time to register for the driving events at Tri-O-Rama later this month. Last minute walk-in registrations are okay. But, you must have completed defensive driving course within the last 12 months. You also need to attend the Drivers' meeting on Sunday 26-Oct.

Keep in mind that cars must pass the technical inspection (see registration packet at link in first post above) and have the brake fluid changed within six months of the event.

See you in Millville, NJ on the 25th....

Day One

A great Concours - even if it was rainy.

We started last night with a group dinner at the clubhouse at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Today we did the Concours in the Rain - a great turnout of cars. The Ralley was a blast - you just needed to think before you left the parking lot.

Tonights Welcome Reception was tops

Tomorrow we head to the Autocross Track and the Defensive Driving School.

If you are not here, you are missing one heck of a time.

The rally was indeed fun... especially since Jim and I won it!

looking forward to the next TOR, it was lots of fun. Even with running the lightning track in the rain on day 2, fishtailing was interesting!
