Stephen H. is in his Mini running in the heat after Cam/Tom on the same courses.  There are two grids per course so he will be in the other grid.  I chatted briefly with Stephen about the west course and how it is "different" but with lots of line choice ... lots of white space/distance between elements ... have to see how it works out ...

Neal Tovsen who has taught many SoloPro Schools in Calgary and Ft. Macleod with Todd Cochrane of Minnesota, are running their blue CSP Miata Thurs/East and Fri/west in the 1st heat.

And Katie Lacey, Neal's wife, is in CSPL in the 3rd heat (they always separate ladies classes by a min. of 2 heats.   2 heats is good because you can leave the car in grid after you run for impound while the other grid runs ... and then they come back ... might only have to move to a different grid spot.

Alan Rae of Calgary is in DM in his Caterham Super 7 (green/aluminium one that was at both YYC events) running in the last (5th) heat West/Tues. and East/Wed.  FYI, he was at the first SCCA Nations back in 1972!  :)

Dennis Healy of Portland is running his 2015 Mustang in ESP ... reason I mention him is because he grew up in the Toronto area somewhere and moved to Portland maybe 10 years ago????    Something like that.  We always see him and speak with him at the Packwood Tour and Pro.

Dean Chen and Nicolas Chu of Vancouver are in an S2000CR in STR ... a big class to watch ... Kevin Dietz found a bit more HP just before Nats for his S2k and Ron Bauer has been developing the new '16 Miata for STR (he won the Packwood Tour and Pro in it) for Mazdaspeed.  James Yom of LA is incredibly fast, if he does not cone out, in his S2000CR.

STR runs 4th heat on Thurs/West and Fri./East .

Big class too ... 64 in open and class and 10 in women's.

There may be some others from Ontario there but I don't recognize their names ... Bruno Lajoie and Carl Weiner from Montreal area don't seem to be there this year ... almost a fixture in Lincoln and Topeka before that!

There are some other friends I will be following out there whom I know mainly from the west coast - LA, San Diego, Seatlle, Portland etc.

How about you?   Anyone you will be following?   Most of the key people from the Packwood Tour etc will be there!
