Yep. Here's photographic PROOF!



We had four GXP owners - BigV8, PMD G8, GXPaycheck, and mine - plus two GT owners - DougHG8 and Eric (whose username I cannot remember).

Don't worry, there will be a next time. I was talking to Brian, we might also see about grabbing a few owners and renting the test track at NCCAR for a bit some time.

And because it's what I do, here's some pics of BigV8's rather prettiful supercharged SRM GXP.

How did BigV8 get those centercaps to fit the GXP wheels?

He didn't. Those are the CTS-V wheels.

I thought I counted seven total. Maybe Doug's car went by so fast I counted it twice

I see your car in the background on these ones lol.

Unless there was another silver G8. I can't really see the bumper in these pics for proper classification.

She's looking really good Jerry! Always thought that was a great color on the G8. Wish either one of mine were that clean.

And yes, I'd be interested in the NCCAR thing too.

That's me, I hopped in line with the Mustang group b/c the guy in charge of lining up cars was a freaking moron. I asked him "so this line will be next, correct?"(asking about the line I was in) He said, "no the mustang group has to go next and then that line over there"(pointing to a line that had just come off the track 2 minutes earlier) I argued with him about it. He didn't seem to get it. I lucked out on that b/c the Mustang group got a 30 minute session as apposed to a 20 minute session b/c their first session was cut short due to a Mustang slamming into a wall.

Then there were the two Hyundai Genesis owners cut in front of me when the line I was originally in was moving forward, while I was driving. The worker cut the line off at the first "BMW"(hyundai Genesis). So, Karma was a bitch and they ended up getting stuck behind the pace car during their session.
