Great Friends, Great track, Great Pro Driver instruction, Record Track times, Great weather. Ok fine it was GREAT!
Had a great time! Videos to follow. It was great to be there with Buds Sean, Mike and Ramon. It was great to meet new Buds, Luis and Gil. Dropped more than 4 seconds off my personal best with Sean and I clocking 3 2:38's in a row on Saturday. Sean and I both felt that we did better Sunday but I'll have to analyze the Vids first. My new "Push-to-pass" system seemed to work great! PCA made Chris Hall available for track coaching. It was destinct pleasure to have Chris Pilot my car (I certainly didn't know from my own experience that my mini could take turn 1 & 17 at that speed) and then Me. Chris is not only a great driver but is one of the warmest, jovial, and humble people you will meet. The fact that he drove to the track in a mini had of course nothing to do with my opinioln of him! My session with him was my last of the weekend so I didn't ave a chance to test my new knowledge but I did turn a 2:42 and a 2:41 with the extra weight in the car. Many thanks Chris!
Hey Brian, couldn't find ya when I took off, just wanted to say Thanks for everything and see you at the next event!
Had an incredible time out on the track and special thanks to my mentor for the weekend, Sean Riordan. Despite continually banging his head on the roof of the car and growing a blister on his hand from gripping the door handle, he made me faster, smoother, and just slightly less stupid (a lot of work still to be done in that category). New brake pads and tires in my near future!

Had a great time at the track today, was very busy and wish I had more time to hangout with Sean and Adam. Next time!
Good group of people. Good track flow and a very well organized club.

Hey Brian, signed up, thanks for the push, see you up there and yes I would like you to ride the 10;15 session if you can.Thanks Again!
Thanks, Brian, I had 2 - 3hour straight sessions and SIR two years ago but I would like you to ride with me for a session as a refresher course. I'll let you know for Sunday only, have to rearrange few things first.

David registration is officially closed, however if you want to come sunday there is still plenty of room sunday solo group I can get you added in manually.
if memory serves me right there are only about 30 people in the yellow group Sunday so it should not be bad at all. Not sure what your experience level was at SIR if you need me in the car the first session I am happy to do so.

Hey Brian, David C, you gave me a solo check ride at PBIR last month, I was thinking of doing a Sunday only but 190 registrations?? Will this be like driving on 95??
Yup - he went to high school with my wife and just ran with us at Lemons at PBIR in December. Contact me off list at surfcycle at gmail dot com.

Adam, I think you are friends with my friend Sean Pangia, this true?
Looks like 4 of us from PSL. I'll have my 74 911 IROC running in the yellow group.
Yup - staying there. I'm driving my 95 M3 that I'm slowly turning into a dedicated track/race car. My dad will be there hopefully with our Lemons race car. We'll need to talk about getting you on our Lemons team.

Adam, glad to see a fellow gearhead on Trackweekend. Very excited that we're gonna have some PSL representation. Tomorrow morning I have to take the car to Orbit Racing in WPB to get tires put on, corner balanced and ready for next weekend. Can't wait. Are you staying at the Chateau Elan?
Adam Fetterman here - good running into you last weekend. Didn't know you were a track junkie too. Look forward to seeing you in Sebring next weekend - looks like at least 3 of us from PSL.
You rock Brian. Thanks again.
Ramon, I just heard back from Christal, you are approved for SOLO. I will be there Sunday if you around say hello.
Thanks Brian, I truly appreciate your help. Do you need me to send her a track day summary or just hang tight?
Ramon, I just got off the phone with our registrar (GCRPCA) Christal Smithyman, she is checking into your solo status with PBOC and will take action from there.
If Amy doesn't know you, it makes sense you are in blue. If everything checks out, you'll get a sign off drive and you will be solo for the next event with Suncoast. It should be a fast group. Lambo, a couple of GT3's and M-series Bimmers.
I will be there Sunday only but I am sure Amy & Christal will get you sorted out. It may take some time as they will probably need to verify with PBOC.
Ok. Emailed Amy, the Suncoast DE registrar with request and track history. Will wait and see. If not, I'll just beg for someone here to pick me up as a student...
I would email the registrar directly, her email address should be on the confirmation package. Let us know how it goes and who you speak with.
Ok. I received my confirmation yesterday and my requested numbers. However, I signed up for the yellow/solo group and was placed in the blue/advanced student group. I thought that PCA and PBOC had reciprocity and that driving solo in PBOC would allow me to do the same in PCA. Is this correct or am I completely off base. I also sent an experience history with my registration of 20+ track days at Sebring. Any advice?
Adam,If the PCA group does not know your experience, they will place you in non-solo. Your instructor will have you do a check out drive when you are ready. To go solo at Sebring in a manual shift car, heel-toe shifting is pretty much required. Your assigned class will be on the ROSTER link on your confirmation at clubregistration.net....

Ramon,Check the roster to see if the number you want is not on the roster list. If it is open, email the registrar and request the number you want. See you there!
Alright I'm in for Saturday. How do you request a number? The registration auto assigned me one, but I never noticed a preferred number field.
Steve I almost positive that trucks of any kind are no longer compliant with PCA national rules.

Is There anything agains running street trucks at these events?
Linda - I did sign up thanks. Not sure how PCA classifies drivers and put myself in the "blue" group (along with driving history in the clubregistration.net page). Will someone contact me to confirm class?

It's always fun playing with the Porsches!

Adam, most PCA HPDEs are open to non-PCA members and cars other than Porsche. The Feb 26 DE at Sebring already has non-Porsches on the roster. Go to http://www.clubregistration.net. To register, create an account, it's free. To register for this event, go to Menu > Search for Events, then select Organization> PCA, Club> select Suncoast PCA and Event Type> Driver's Ed, then Search. This is a friendly group of car enthusiasts, hope we will see you there.
