Thank you for a great August Course

Thank you, Christine, Tom, et al. For designing and setting up a very interesting and fun course.

I was especially fond of the long left before the pin turn right into the finish. Effective cone placement requiring looking well ahead to remain on line and at the proper aggression.

That course is my favorite of 2019 so far. I had *so* much fun!

Thank you Christine for penning it, Michael Bradley for leading the setup on it, and Marshall and Tom Frecentese for the Saturday evening modifications.

That was hard! But hugely enjoyable. Kicked my backside pretty hard but wanted more. I was thrilled too to coach Robert on a course like that. So many technical elements to really work on skills. Constructive criticism is probably going to center around the tight finish turn. But remember we did feel the last finish was too fast and were looking for ways to slow it down. I like slowing down before the lights so you use proper technique and not the old Craig Angel crash the finish element. Loved it! Well done!

My favorite course this year for sure. Both days.
Maybe even the best CalClub one I have done.
Great Job Christine and Crew!

I can't say that I executed any driving particularly well.......it was very much what I'd been looking for, for awhile. Believe it was a great test for all classes. Looking forward to use, what I learned, while watching........:cool:

Also been missing the long slalom......the extension was welcomed!

I don’t really know sh#$ from shinola when it comes to autox, as we all know. But I’ll say say this. I loved how if I stayed ahead of that course it would open up and reward me, and If i didn’t it punished. And I liked bombing down from the ridge on the rev limiter and having illegal r compound tires on for breaking. Too bad about the sidewalls.

Cheers Christine and team.
