Got the issue yesterday, nice to see more coverage of the meet. This issue covers the Road Racing and Drag Racing portions of the event, where as the Turbo Magazine coverage concentrated on the Dyno and Show and Shine. Lots of good action shots on this one. What I found amazing is that both were written by Ryan Hawkins, but you would never know it by reading them, 2 totally different writing styles. Great job Ryan, shows your true journalistic talents.

I love that one shot of Tommy Banh's car blowing flames on the dyno...........

Thanks for posting the scans up, can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Rob was specific that they just wanted to cover the dyno and car show, so that is where I focuses and tried to keep the article pretty "matter of fact." For SCC Ed just wanted me to cover the event, so I wanted to cover as much as possible and inject a little sarcasm and wit as I've always enjoyed from the magazine. I'm curious to read the article. It was about 1600 words vs. 1250 for Turbo, but I know they had to cut it down a lot.

I'm kind of dissapointed that your car wasn't in either one, to me it was one of the highlights of the entire meet! Perhaps next year dude, it is one fine ride!

I took tons of pics of every car, but it doesn't look like they used pics of anything but MKIV's in SCC. The turbo article had some pics of MK3's.

Reading the final edit is interesting, they didn't have to cut too much out of it, and they tweaked the way I worded things here and there, but it came out very nicely.
