      Is this one already in the Turbobricks events section? I don't think I saw it.

      I didn't do it, so probably no. I've been lazy this year. I've even missed two meets already!

      So Sunday is for sure the biggest event at Bandimere Speedway. You won't miss us, we set up a large Volvo compound. The other gatherings are still up in the air I think.

      I wish I could have come, but the timing didn't work out. Instead I'll have to settle for the cars and coffee at Treasure Island this Saturday.

      As years past, we'll meet at the Conoco gas station at the northwest corner of the Morrison exit off C-470 at 7:00 AM, then leave as a group to get in line at the gates. You can come any time you want though, you can still enter the track and park with us. Look for the big Volvo flag (and the Volvos of course).

      It's $40 to race or $15 to spectate, and spectators can still park with the racers and hang out (don't park in the lower lot and walk up, drive up to the gate and just pay the spectator fee, then drive in and find us). Bring your Volvo, coolers full of snacks, camping chairs, portable tables and pop up tents/awnings for kicking back and hanging out. We always have great turnout, with everything from vintage to stock to heavily modded cars.

      If you race, the $40 gets you 3 runs minimum. The first two are to dial in your time, the third is your first bracket race. Then you can keep running if you keep winning. And you do not have to be seriously interested in competing, you can just run to see how fast your car is and then quit, which is what I do.

      If you're not familiar with bracket racing, you're running against your estimated time, not the other car. So they'll race a 15 second car against an 18 second car, and the slower car starts 3 seconds earlier. It's like the price is right - whoever gets closer to their estimated time without going under, wins.

      Most of us just run the three times and lose, and the party breaks up shortly after 1:00, but a few who win stick around and keep racing. It's up to you how long to stay but it's a fun silly car chat time. It's also fun to see just which cars are faster than you and which... aren't. It's surprising how many cars are all show with no go.

      ^ i went to spectate. It was a nice event. Didnt see any of the volvo people in the lot but i saw a bunch of them doing the quarter mile! Actually a lot more volvo's than i expected to see racing. Next time i'll have to see what my car can do.

      We had 23 cars counted in the pit, Brown you can park up with us in the pit as a spectator next time. Or better yet, a racer!

      I was of course disappointed in my c70's speed, don't plan on running it again, it's done. Hopefully my 122 is running again for next year.
