Laguna Seca is a track that people from around the world lust over. I don't think much of San Francisco, but the Monterey Peninsula is a destination in itself. Be aware that the winter is the rainy...

Please let us know what they tell you, as far as measuring any flex.

The other nice thing is if your cage is not 360 degrees welded up, you can get that finished with the roof off.

Regarding 13/13 racing, I wasn't talking about making risky moves on them, but vice versa. There are race classes within NASA where "rubbin' is racing" is not just an attitude, it's a way of life.

Considering they are going purely by lb. per hp, 911's should have a nice advantage with their low hp/high torque and rear weight bias.

Another avenue to consider is BMW club racing. At least you won't have to drive a Miata. :)

It sounds like you have a peanut head like me. Bells are shaped for bowling ball heads. You may find that a Simpson fits you better.

If you do the head gasket you will also need a new timing belt. Once you relax tension on the belt you have to replace it.

It sounds like you want to "do" rather than "watch". In that case, forget the Monterey Historics, Tribute to LeMans, etc.

Holtville was the track there. It was still in occasional use even last year.

Infineon but not Laguna. Laguna will probably also never be in the OTC for two reasons:
