    Paul and all others who may be interested in future driving at Stapleton: Very fun 
road course! Especially if done through Q-club USA at the unbeatable price of $100!
12 turns,1 Long straight, long sweepers-up to ~120mph,  2-3 hairpins and short elevation 
changes. Very smooth surface being that it's on the old concrete runways and plenty of 
room off the track in the corners should you end up there. Just watch out for the 
concrete barriers!  Very hard on the brakes if stock-definitely get an upgrade if you 
really push the car for more than ~7 laps. Also remember that the elevation is ~ 5280' so 
that beast that runs so well at sea level suddenly feels like it's running short one 
cylinder. I just want to see some of these cars you guys drive out here at next years 
event! Always a good turnout! If more info is needed, please write me privately. Good
