    Great day and a great turnout! I took some pics but I am bummed that they did not turn out too well. Smudge on the lens and I didn't notice until I got home. I have more pics, but they will have to wait until I can upload to a server.

    It started out a bit of a grey day. But there were an impressive number of us that showed. The shear number of us going down the freeway was insane. I couldn't get a picture good enough to show just how awesome it was.

    This event is held on a military airstrip. When you arrive, you are immediately greeted with American firepower.

    A different kind of American firepower, the Axis Twin Turbo Viper owned by Jason Tarnutzer.

    Ulysses. Good to finally meet you, and thanks for the picts.
    39 Vipers made the event, and 58 signed up for the lunch.(Sorry about the food. The focaccia sandwitches were a little lame, but the double fudge brownies were great.)
    Twin Turbo Viper was a hit. Still getting sorted out. Seeing the vintage GT-40 racing against the McLarens was a hoot, as well as the 3 Cobra's duking it out. Great racing. The open pits had some amazing cars, ranging from BMW's to Racing Jags, Trans Am cars, even a few Curtis', and a fantastic black Allard. Francois Gastang (One of the original 4 Viper Founders), raced his galant chrysler. The sound of the Birdcage Masaratti's, the Ferrari V-12's and the American V-8's made my soul sing.

    Uly,

    Thanks for the pics. I had relatives in town with no interest in seeing the better things in life. Thought maybe I could sneak away, but the wife got wise... Next year.

    Thanks! The Vipers did not compete. Classics only.
