    When my wife & I were returning from the gathering spot for the mountain drives there was a Pantera and a SuperPerformance 7 by the side of the highway. My wife's comment was that the Pantera must have had a problem. I guess she has more faith in 7's than Panteras.

    Our car took best in show (popular vote). Thanks for all the support. Details of my auto-X, 1/4 mile drag and Bristol circle track experience later.

    On the way to LOG we spotted 4 Stalkers a Caterham and a sorry-I-forgot-the name at the Wheels Through Time Museum. I looked like they were having a blast.

    The Stalkers were part of the annual Stalker Bush.

    The mighty Seven produced a best quarter mile time of 25.182 seconds at 49.34 mph. I had trouble with the 2-3 shift. It doesn't like to be rushed.

    At the auto-X I missed the same gate on each run. The course was a good one. Missing the gate was all my fault.

    I drove the Bristol bullring flat out for a few laps, 75 mph indicated. The pace car almost lapped me so I dropped down off the racing surface to let it go by then came back up for a few more flat out laps. The car was sliding around a bit. It was certainly working much harder and closer to the limit than the modern cars.

    I heard that the mountain driving loops were great fun. A police escorted each group out of town then let them go play while they went back to the staging area to pickup the next group.

    There seemed to be many more couples at LOG than previous years.

    Both my wife and I took test drives in an IPS equipped Evora. Nice!

    Notable in attendance were POP 444 a Mk VI, a Mk XII from the Barber museum, a few truly special edition Esprits and lots of Evoras.

    There was an I-racing setup where you could take 25 minutes to do your best lap. Top times had a runoff.

    Three vendors had stuff for sale. There were lots of books, trinkets, logo cloths and lots of autographed items.

    I wish I could tour like guys were doing. Your cars looked huge and substantial compared to our car.

    I struggle over what to do with ours. I love driving it but I also want to make it a concourse car. I probably will compromise and use it for a little of both.

    I did have an overheating problem when I got caught in traffic. The temperature gauge wound past 230 and I lost about half a gallon of coolant. John from the Barber museum helped me out by magically appearing with a roll of absorbent material to help clean up the parking lot.
