Pete,

Let's start seeing some names against some of those cars for 2006.

How much are we talking about for the entrance fee for 2007? Possible routes??

Is the Ant and Pete Rally still going to run this year given your involvement with CarbonBlack or are the two events merging?

I think someone is venting their anger/frustration at Paul. Not the greatest English I've ever seen.
