Any other comments or presumptions?
My assumption is just that you'll be slow lol.

Lmao sure. Make sure it's a Turn2 event. I'll let you have as many laps as you want. I'll run one hot lap. If you get within 10 sec I'll be impressed.

Or you can work your way up to advanced group over many events and then we can run together.

lol... my dude you are making a BIG mistake. A hurt ego is one thing, but don't take a bigger L than you have to. If you want advice, keep the bet small. Your sub 10 sec quarter time means literally nothing on a road course. Ignoring the fact that you've never even been to the ridge before, if the only seat time you have is from a 1 or 2 day school (skip barber/BMW) then going up against people who track religiously is probably not the smartest idea. Your GTR's horsepower will not save you, and you have no idea what you're up against.

Dude. What makes you think losing is the end of the world? Besides that was simply a response that I do know some other type of racing other than drag racing.

In any case, the point I made that he responded to is the my GTR's horsepower is faster than any BMW. That's not going to change, whether I win or not, is it.

Now if anyone local thinks they have a faster BMW for either drag or roll racing, do come out to Bremerton on June 13th, simple as that.

Sorry. I had to mess with him because he sounded like king ding-a-ling with his GTR, picking on lowly M3's. So I basically said my dick is smaller, but I'll pound it around harder.

so MK my friend, i fear a dilemma may be approaching: what will we do next year with 7ewis's name? already tried "L8wis" and wasn't happy...do you think "Lewi8" might be too repetitious?

(my vote on the poll will remain anonymous, of course)

How have you been, my friend?

hi Philippe. as we know, essential qualities almost unique to truly epic champions are 1) timing, not only on the track and 2) an ability, often against "the common wisdom", to make the correct decision. 7ewis leaving McClaren is a perfect example, as Fernando would probably attest. i know i thought he'd lost his mind at the time...
