what's the max number of cars? I.e. what's teh bottom line if we filled up a session? 10 people means $600 for a day. I'd be down for that, if we could support that many on one of the smaller circuits.

I don't know about the max number of cars, and I can't remember if that included insurance. Since there is a decent amount of interest, I can contact them for more information.

you know what...on further reflection, there's no way I could take my car. I can't get a helmet on in there....the roofline is too low. :-/

We test-fitted the helmet in the SLK. If I can fit my helmet in the car, you can in yours. On the other hand, it would probably be a lot of fun to drive, ahem, topless. I wonder if they'd be down for that :D

negatory. If I don't slouch, my head barely touches the headliner with the seat all the way down and back. To be honest, the M3 was not much better. The S5 had more head room.

No worries. There is obviously enough interest now, so we'll try again soon!

BTW Alex, you're the only one with the quote problems... and I have no idea why, everything looks fine! What browser are you using?

Excellent :) Apparently some permissions did not come over from the last upgrade! All good now!

The Datsun's surprising me. It actually has some "sit back" power.

If there it's a car that it's performing and not sold, I'm in.
If they don't send me away again...
