    Spending an evening with Dennis Grant

    Great tech talk last night - thanks to Joe for organizing, Dean for the space, and Dennis for making the time to give us a fantastic presentation. Despite having been out of the sport for a few years he's clearly still very passionate about it!

    I would love to see tech talks make a regular appearance again - it might be a good excuse to resurrect the monthly members meetings during the season. A few topics off the top of my head that could be interesting:
    - Data logging
    - Course design
    - Shock tuning
    - "Budget" endurance racing
    - Mental preparation
    - How to build a competitive street touring car

    Chime in if you're interested or if you have other topic ideas, and hopefully we can get the ELT on board.

    I really enjoyed this as well. A big thanks to Dennis, Joe, Dean and everyone else involved. I would love to see more events like this too.

    Great ideas for topics. I would like to see a presentation/workshop on how to correctly set-up "Solostorm" and how to get the most out of it. I would also be interested in a test and tune day on the pad to have help set-up suspensions and tire pressures.
