I thought I post some information on the local driving classes and track stuff in So Cal that is left for this summer…Especially with Yannis coming to California. This isn’t a GTG nor an event. Just information for the R owners in Southern California that want tune fine to the car or test out their nerves somewhere safe. Some of this stuff I might not attend since I have to fly to Maui on the July 15th on business, but I thought I post it for anyone that’s interest and maybe get some feed back on the course that I haven’t attended, but some of the other SS members have.<p><br><B> June 21-23 </B>Streets of Willow (Audi Club of America):<br><A HREF="http://www.sccaudi.com/articles.asp?id=155" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sccaudi.com/articles.asp?id=155</A><p>This group concentrates on improving driving ability. You must be a member of the Audi Club of America to attend. Membership is cheap and easy to apply if you are not a member yet. [email protected] Wheels got me involved with the event in Las Vegas and was a blast. This is typically a mature atmosphere with high dollar vehicles…A Ferrari and a Lotus was at the last event. This is turn signaling for passing rule.<p><IMG SRC="http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/4498/4willowsprings7ks.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br><B> July 1 & 2</B> Willow Springs (Speedventure): <br><A HREF="http://www.speedventures.com/7-1-2006_event.asp" TARGET="_blank">http://www.speedventures.com/7-1-2006_event.asp</A><p>You can attend one of the days or both. They usually run 3 groups based on experience. This is track style racing with point by rules. Usually 30 minutes each run. They rotate the groups out to give you some download time.

Re: Driving Clinics and Track stuff for So Cal (KillerB)

Nice, Bryan! Thanks! Too bad that I will probably not catch up with you until you return. I will be in San Diego by the July 4th holiday.<p>Hopefully there will be some Volvo GTGs in August or thereafter! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Yannis
