Thanks for passing the note along Ti!  I have been trying to find someone to
help "cross pollinate" the two groups ... and appreciate you doing so in
this case.  

If there are any folk who, like me, feel that they are paying enough to
Laguna for the event tickets and would rather not pay extra for the corral
passes let me know.  If there is enough interest we can caravan to Laguna
Seca together and set up another impromptu corral on the hills around the
track.  I doubt it will be necessary, but if we do decide to do this it
would probably be good to check with Steve to see if he has met the minimum
requirements for the corral.  We can still purchase our tickets through the
site to get the number of tickets up for the corral ... 

Last year the ALMS folks had a "San Jose Le Mans" race in downtown San Jose.
I attended it last year and found it to be a great way to get up close and
personal to the teams for free, and without having to drive all the way to
Laguna Seca.  It was also quite a hoot to see the cars blasting laps on the
city streets ... hearing the raspy exhaust of the Panoz echoing off the
facades of the surrounding buildings was certainly an experience too.  I am
trying to confirm whether or not the same event will happen this year ASAP
... and I'll keep you posted!
