    Howdy folks,

    The plans for the rest of the weekend have been finalized!

    Friday:
    - Caravan departs from Houston at 8 a.m. SHARP from the HEB parking lot at Bunker Hill and I-10
    - Hang out in the SRT hospitality area, watch the Lone Star LeMans race and cheer on the SRT Viper Racing Team and Ben Keating (after you purchase your tickets)
    - After the races are over we'll head out to Kreuz Market in Lockhart for a Texas BBQ dinner that's sponsored by Viper Exchange

    Saturday:
    - Hang out in the SRT hospitality area, watching the Lone Star Le Mans race and cheering on the SRT Viper Racing Team and Ben Keating
    - After the races are over we'll head back to the Marriott for a dinner buffet with a cash bar
    - Viper Exchange will be auctioning off a 100% parts and labor install of the first GEN V suspension modification that will lower your car 9/16 of an inch and improve ride quality. They'll also be auctioning off other goodies from their race coffers that are unique and not available for sale anywhere!

    Sunday:
    - Depart the hotel at 9:30 and head WEST on some of Texas' more scenic Hill Country roads and enjoy a nice brunch (cash only) to wrap up the weekend.

    Registration fee is $75 per person payable in advance. Please drop a note to info@houstonviperclub.com for a registration form that contains all the information you need

    See ya'll there!

    Le Mans is Le Mans.

    And, the real "Le Mans" is not located in Texas.
    All they have to do is stick a load of Audi Silver corporate boxes in the pit village and it will look just like Le mans

    Top 'o the mornin' to everyone!

    The clock is ticking and the weekend planned at CoTA to watch the Vipers race is now only 10 days out! I don't know about you but we're super excited to go hang out with racers in the SRT tent, eat some great BBQ and Mexican food and then top it off with a nice Sunday morning cruise to brunch before heading home all with your kindred spirits - Viper Owners!

    As an added bonus, you Gen V folks pay special attention to this: Viper Exchange is auctioning off a suspension mod at the Friday night dinner.
    This is the first of many mods to come so join us at the auction and start modding your new car!

    We are NOT going to VOI but VCA started out to rent COTA for the weekend and couldn't fill it up. Since it was set aside time wise Karen the lady with Edge Addicts charged with operating the facility still needed to fill up the time so took over for Saturday and Sunday and opened the track up to the public. Sunday was just opened up yesterday. There are open slots and VCA isn't getting anything from these days as I understand it otherwise we wouldn't be going. If your interested check with www.edgeaddicts.com

    Not at all. You go to edgeaddicts.com to sign up and pay them directly. VCA has nothing to do with that plus Karen is furious at the implication!

    All in due time young man! We're empty nesters gone wild . . . last kid graduated from college, got a job and moved out . . . we have so much time on our hands now we're trouble looking for a place to happen!

    I just noticed on South Central's FB page that Kurt Robinson was planning to participate in the parade lap saying he can't leave his poor car in the parking lot just looking at that race track and that it needs to be seen by the crowds!

    Saturday and Sunday got cancelled - folks weren't willing to pay that much more on top of VOI registration fees so Edge Addicts stepped in and opened up a weekend event. I asked Karen if she had many Vipers signed up and she said no due to the cost.

    To recap our plans and add a little more information:

    If you're caravaning with us Friday morning:

    - Arrive at CoTA around 10:30 - everyone should have their tickets and parking information (we got ours yesterday)
    9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd
    Austin, TX 78617
    (512)391-6600

    - Friday dinner
    - Depart from CoTA after the races are over and go directly to Kreuz Market for dinner (arrival ETA is 6 p.m.)
    619 N. Colorado St.
    Lockhart, TX 78644
    (512)398-2361
    - Viper Exchange is graciously partially underwriting this dinner and we've got the rest covered!

    Wow what a weekend! The race was a Viper sweep with wins! #93 came in first, #91 came in second and #33 took first in its class. Rain held off for the race but we hear the endurance race Saturday evening was rather wet and slippery!

    Huge kudos to SRT for their hospitality - everyone had a wonderful time and their rig was truly over the top for track side fun at the start/finish line directly across from both SRT's pit and Viper Exchange's pit. Was great fun watching the drives climb the fence when it was apparent Vipers were going to win!

    Thank you Kurt Robinson and Yvette Garcia from the South Central Region for all their help in setting up the Friday BBQ (was quite delicious) and the lively Sunday cruise to a great restaurant on the river in Marble Falls. Thank you Slim who drove all the way from Midland to join us for generously picking up the lunch tab!

    Big thanks to Viper Exchange for underwriting part of the Friday BBQ - they're wonderful to have in H-town! Speaking of Viper Exchange, Ben Keating was kind enough to join us for Saturday's dinner after his huge win and auctioned off an installed Gen V suspension mod. The auction started and Edgar Alvarez slammed it closed with a winning bid of $1500! So much for anyone else bidding!

    Now here is the coup de grase: Ralph and Doris Gilles joined us for dinner Saturday night as we enjoyed some tasty fajitas at the Marriott. Ralph also came out Sunday morning and signed everyone's engines plus John Walker's corded left front tire! How cool is that?? I'm mad at Richard for talking me into leaving MY CAR at home for the weekend!

    I'll have pictures later once I download and clean them up. Tonight's chore is to put new Hoosiers on my X so I'll be ready to roll at CoTA this weekend with Edge Addicts! I'm so ready to go again!
