Re: That Speeding Ticket I got Last May

In the spirit of the moment, I would like to remind you all that there
are vigorously enforced speed limits on the entrance roads to Laguna
Seca, both on the highways and on the reservation. Last year we passed a
humiliated T Bird driver getting his invitation to visit the court less
than a hundred yards from the ticket takers on the road from the Seaside
area. Don't be that guy, our ragging will never go away, and you'll
become a reluctant legend.
See ya there! John
