Well that has its upsides as well. Wild west! Hope you can chomp on some Porsches.
Its American Iron Extreme so, only American cars.
The group will have other cars in it but I'm not concerned with them.
Just the cars in my class.

I wish the AI and AIX classes would get off the ground here on the left coast. NASA posted a video from a recent AI race in the Northeast - I counted twelve S197 cars roll by.

I originally built my car for AIX but then the car count was so low I went with SCCA.
There’s currently I think 4 or 5 running AIX here in Norcal, just not at every race.
I'll be there as a pair of hands if you need anything!
Definitely stop by....if you can find us.
Parking is full and they are trying to find someplace to put the overflow.
God only knows where that might be....

Frank's car is down and you have to rub it in that yours is quieter. I like his louder exhaust. :) Just joking. They both sound great!
