We'll probably need at least two cars to get us there, so if you're willing to drive a couple of people there please say so.

Add your name to the following list if you want to come.

I'm definitely in (including my car). And yeah, they have a track 2/3 combo dealie regularly on Saturday mornings (once a month I think).. AND I was chatting with Mike there via email and he said they would likely be able to do it on a different Saturday with a confirmed group of people. I don't even think it was that many.. maybe 4 or 5 people minimum? I offered to pitch in on gas for him too since he lives outside of London someplace. I don't think it would be that easy for me to go on a weeknight either.. a weekend would be much better. The 3rd/4th weekends in August are good for me, as are the 1st/3rd/4th/5th weekends in September. Any other weekend is likely a no-go for me. That's assuming we're going on a Saturday.. if it's a Sunday, the 2nd weekend in August is OK too (only busy that Saturday).

that was an epic effort on the part of the dane. I like the letour.fr headline "A Flying Chicken: A Yellow Spaniard & Floyd’s Day To Forget!" Will anyone have anything left for tomorrow, or are we going to see everything reshuffled again like today?

Is there a rolls royce of tire levers for tight fitting tires guys? My yellow quik-stik died. It needs to be strong because I always end up with SUPER tight tire/rim combos.
