GT cars?, in any case I'm in. Maybe consider putting it out to the wider world. May catch another driver for the league.

GT cars! drivers choice :)
i'll wait for a bit to see how many from oAo sign up... if we get what i hope for, no need for a wider net. but for sure, if interest in oAo is low, i'll post it.

I would like to be, and with GT as Michi says. But it depends on the date, I will start my holidays next Saturday and I will be at the beach for 15 days.

Have a date in mind already Bruce? With the seasons first race around the corner I'd guess sometime during the breaks.

I am interested, but not before the season starts. Mid-season or off-season and I'll eagerly participate. It'll give me a reason to try Lee's GPL Pace Notes program. Our last experience with Targa convinced me that I'll never learn the whole thing!

If you want to, you will. It's been similar to other tracks for me. It took me 50 laps to get around it somewhat well, like any other track. That was 2 laps every Sunday morning for 6 months. Over the past two years, I've gotten to know it better. I rarely forget where I am on the track now and I can push some of the cars rather hard.

If time allows, I might want to participate.

Have you never driven around Targa? That is surprising to me.

I've completed one lap in the Porsche 910 few months ago with Lee's spotter, and I was utterly slow. Lot's of respect for guys that have mastered this track. I know Greg Taber is awesome here.

I have driven it but it was as a tester and briefly before I realised I didnít have enough time to complete the plans of makng a driving roadbook that lets say a navigator could use, and setups for the original 67 cars. My momís illness sadly took away that opportunity at the time. I love this type of track to drive on, and hope to get a chance to race on it some day, no matter how daunting the test will be :)
