Hello East Coast USA!

Just noticed the new forum and wanted to be the first from the East Coast of the United States to say HI!

Um, Andrew, I noticed you had a forum for Southeast USA, perhaps this one should be Northeast?

Good idea, would a New Yorker consider themselves from the East or Northeast (New England?)

New York is in the Northeast but not New England. Maryland is the border. People from the North consider Maryland to be in the South and people from the South consider Maryland to be in the North.

Hi everyone,

Great to have a New England section on Ferrari Life. Now get out there and TRACK your cars!!! While my schedule is at http://www.enjoythetrack.com/race_schedule/, please come join me at various events either to watch, to lend a hand, are dare we say it... track your Ferrari.

The main events open to Fcars where we can meet would be at http://www.comscc.org/

Will also be doing SCCA events, though these are generally not open to stock Fcars for on-track, i really could use a hand at the track (please please please).

Look forward to seeing Flife guys at the track

Brendan,
So you met Steve also? My wife and I hooked up with him last year. He's a good guy. I hope to hook up this year also. Maybe to lend a hand at the track or, dare I say it, track my Ferrari. I guess Steve's pressure is getting to me. One of my goals in life was to own a Ferrari, now one of my goals is to track it. Thanks a freakin' lot Steve!

Always glad to help

COMSCC still has spots available for Watkins Glenn on April 23 / 24 and they have a hotel deal for $100/night at a very nice hotel (Radisson in Corning). Watkins Glenn is a more free-flowing track that the tight and technical NHIS. Besides, WGI was also an F1 track so you could also say you drove on an F1 track

As you know, various videos of the closest tracks to you can be seen at http://www.enjoythetrack.com/video/

Oh yeah, the drive to and surrounding area to WGI is magnificent IMO. Drive right through the Brooksheers (?sp?) too, so on the way to the track you could have a nice lunch/dinner. Realize you live in Maine so WGI would be a bit of a haul. If you do go to track event let me know as i can bring normal car jacks and whatnot PLUS want to be sure you flush your brake fluid and use Motul 600. Naturally i'd be happy to help you prep the car at the track the night before the event.

Many thanks. Took the car out for her first long spin in 2007 yesterday. Wanted to stop by but figured it being the weekend... Plan to see your shop at some point in the next few weeks, as am busy this week and next week have a car tech inspection and a few track days with my other (non-Ferrari)car.

I am in MD and agree we have an identity problem which is why I would propose and support a Mid-Atlantic sub-forum.

I'm fresh out of Rebel flags and the Yanks think I have a southern drawl. The true southeners think I'm a carpetbagger.

Maybe I should relocate?
