We need to have lead for each group and the sweeper (depends how many people turn out)
I will also be one of the lead.
Those who have done this route before. I would need help.
This drive is not a race, not a competition of speed, not to show off whose car is faster or who can take corner faster, no drifting / sideways even you are really good at it.
We are doing this on public roads. Please appreciate other motorists.
Safety is main concern not speed. Please speed safely and enjoy the twisties
We should be finishing up the drive by around lunch time somewhere in Celina, TX (North of Frisco)
Then we all could eat lunch together in Frisco.
Hopefully the lunch (meet) can draw those peeps who are not a morning person to join the fun.
The lunch place is not yet decided as of this time. But I will update the place after I get more info on some possible restaurants.
In the meanwhile, if you have any suggestion of a restaurant w/ huge parking lots, please PM me or e-mail @ [email protected].
Who's in and Who's out?
This drive is not for Subaru Cars only.
It is open to any kind / type car enthusiast from Domestic to Import.
So bring your friend if they are interested.
