Here is a drawing of the course for this weekends event.

It's going to be pretty fast! (sorry Jeff, LOL, well not really the big cars need some lovin after a couple of months at RIR! Ohhh I have a Vette! LOL, lets go fast!)
Anyhow  I may change up the finish a little (to slow it down).

We  probably only need about 35 cones, makes it easier to set up and take down   Grin

It appears that the start is closest to the paddock (right side of this drawing), with a "blazing fast finish" on the left, is that correct? Huh?

Funny, I read it the other way around - with the fast finish being that straight coming out of the carousel on the far right.

But you took the Evo course, so you're used to running courses backwards, right?  Wink

In fact I think I like it better with the corkscrew at the end.  Forces you to keep your brain active right up to the finish, instead of going on autopilot through the last few gates.

Yea the start is closest to the paddock, don't worry about the finish. It has already been stated that it will be adjusted to slow cars down.

  Fun course my experiment with the stock rims kinda backfired on me though I think the stock c5z06 rims can't effectively give proper turn in with 295 r17 a6 tires need more rim whos got the scoop on some rear c5z06 speedlines or alcoa's ?

Hahaha, I was in the 2008 Miata. Matt was in the 04 RX-8 that spun out. My worst penalty was one cone. Grin

If you dont spin every once in a while you arent pushing close enough to the edge Grin

More kudos for a great course! Great to have a very dynamic/exciting course with different types of sections, varying radius, and braking skills tests! More please! Of course, it helps to have a big palette to work with. Hope MEP is on the schedule next year.

I don't think so.  Our fearless leaders (and current keepers of the laptop) probably needed a day to recover from partying all weekend. 

We'll give 'em until tomorrow.  Then we'll start with the nagging.   Grin

Sorry to all that had to clean up. The heat got to me and had to leave after my last run. I did have a good time.
Recovered enough to go to work.
