I think I left sometime around like 9:00-10:00ish? I wanted to go run the canyons before the traffic started to get too busy on Mulholland.
I'm doing the very same prep right now on my car. Leaving LA on Friday morning (19th) and the hitting the races on Sat and Sunday. It's an amazing event! But it's also by far the longest trip I have taken the car on. So double checking everything and making all my last minute tweaks!
I'll be there a little earlier- I'm driving up on Monday and will be coming back on Saturday. I'll hit the Historics on Thursday and Friday. The rest of the week is just awesome with all the events. Ping me- maybe have a drink on Friday!
HAHHAAHAHA yup, I actually ended up buying some of the shots that Paul took that morning. I posted them in my build thread. He does a darn nice job. I have a few of them he has taken of me on my bikes over the years as well. He snapped this one the weekend after I picked up my new Thruxton R. It's what made me eliminate the rear fender LOL.
