RE: FIA/GT after race get together - Sat Oct 24th

My wife and I will be at the races Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I have a
campsite for the duration and had not planned on leaving the track but my
wife wants to go out to dinner, she claims it is for my birthday (40 on
Friday) but I suspect it is also to get away from my camp cooking. I would
enjoy getting together and meeting some new people. There could be an
advantage to a get together at the track but then again I have heard the
Cantina is nice place to go. I have never been to a race at Laguna so I
don't know what to expect for traffic but the last event I was there for,
Spirit West Coast, it took over an hour to get off the site on to highway

	<< A bunch of us are either going to the FIA/GT races at Laguna Seca
	or are willing to get together afterwards to talk German
(sprechunze?).  Jack
	from Monterey says that the Baja Cantina is "the" place to meet.
So, if you
	want to joins us, please do so. >>

	I plan to be there both days. AFIK few (if any) other q-listers made
	year's event. 

	I am not too sure about heading over to the Carmel Valley Village at
	though as that will make for a rather long trek home after an
already long
	day. Could be pushing things domestically ;-) (Not to mention I will
have my 8
	year old son along...)

	Also, there will be an "Oktoberfest" at the track and getting
together there
	is an option as well. Who all is going?

	Re: Saturday's events...the race Saturday is the US "SportsCar"
season finale
	and will be a good race. Sunday's race is the FIA GT car race which
IMO is the
	more mandatory "must see" event of the weekend. Who knows...maybe
the Porsche
	factory GT1 will "defy the laws of physics" off the corkscrew like
it did last
	Saturday at Road Atlanta. (Surprised there are no remarks on that
	else see that thing take off?!)
