    Same here.

    Where do you think the test course will start and go in Palo Alto?

    I hope there will be a stretch where we can floor it, like they allowed in LA.

    That'd be a great stretch, going uphill/downhill also.

    I-280 will work well too for flooring it. Folks usually do 85-90 on that freeway anyway.

    I'm going to miss the Dania, FL event so am planning to attend Palo Alto instead on 15th (assuming I can get a slot)

    Based on the past drive events, I guess the invitations will only go out this weekend. I had received invites for LA and Seattle so far. Not sure how they decide who gets invited to which events but seems like I am getting the West coast invitations based on the fact that I am in the Bayarea.

    Am hoping my invite comes this weekend. I'll be away when the tour comes to my home state of Floriday, but by coincidence I'll be in CA next weekend, so Palo Alto Sunday afternoon - fingers crossed!

    Failing that, try jackrabbitting: Floor for 2 seconds, lift off for 3 seconds. Repeat. Repeat. :scared:

    Two reported on this thread so far, but they are Sig reservation holders. I don't think general production holders have received an invite yet. At least I didn't and I'm P3112.

    Definitely not yet (P8217).

    I wonder if it will be sold out before an invite reaches me
