No, Stan, not South Colton.  I'm pretty sure that he means he's from Stamford, Connecticut.  i guess it could be Silt, Colorado, but then -- who'd want to be from a town that's named after a kind of dirt? :evil:

Long time reader, it's aout time I got more involved.

Mark Clelland from Southern California.  I've just always loved anything with a motor.  Finally had the opportunity to get on the salt a few years ago during Speed Week and was instantly addicted.  Currently hanging out with the 904 car but one of these days, when I grow up, I'd like to have a car of my very own. Heck maybe even a bike.

See you on the salt.

Hi, my name is John Read and have been a long time lurker.

Love the concept of land speed racing - it's like the drags were in the 60's and 70's (my introduction to motorsport) where you could try out your odd ball ideas.

Starting to plan out a lakester in my head for a retirement project, seeing that's not too far off..

John

I am Rob Hickox. I just registered to run in the production 1,000cc motorcycle class at Loring. Not looking to set any records, just looking to enjoy myself for the first time trying this.

I am active duty U.S. Air Force and find the opportunity to run on a military runway a true thrill. Some bases used to do it in the past, but I missed those days by a couple years. I have ridden my 2009 Kawasaki ZX10R on the autobahn at almost 200. That was a thrill to do on a public road legally. I hope to meet some people and make some memories.

That wasnt the reason for putting that in my post, but thank you from the bottom of my heart. I grew up in central Florida. When I go home, nobody cares about the military down there. There is a difference in the way of life up here in the north east that I cant find anywhere else. I truly love the way of life up here, but it is just too cold in the winter to stay after I retire in a couple years.
