Attention lowracers

I'm gearing this specifically to Chris, but I don't know how many other lowracer pilots are out there.

I'm forming an all lowracer team for the Texas Time Trials this year: http://www.tt24tt.com/

So far the team consists of myself and Mark Leuck from http://www.lifeonabaron.blogspot.com/ fame. I'm also wooing Tim Woudenburg, who is considering it.

My team last year broke the standing DF record by an hour, but we were at the same time beat by a DF team so our record was technically never held. I'm certain that a team of lowracers will shatter it. Interested?

Ok John and Chris, I need one more guy for my team. Which one of you guys is in? Picture yourself with a big-arsed trophy, record in the bag, and a smile on your face!

It sure sounds like it'd be fun, but Texas is WAY to long a drive for me to do it. The Cannon might be interested, though. Ya want me to pass the invite along?

I've already asked Bill and Doug. It's a good drive, yes, but I can make sure you don't incur any hotel expense. I've got a nice house with a pool and everything!

If you can convince hannon the cannon to do it, and if I could hitch a ride with him, I guess I'd be in. It would hinge on that though.

That spare wouldn't be for sale by any chance would it?

Not at the moment, but PM me - there's one I know FOR SURE will be for sale in Dallas next week. It's essentially brand new, that beautiful blue color and is absolutely sparkling gorgeous.
