Default New here and to Seattle

Hi there.

I'm new to Seattle and the NW and just wanted to say hello. I moved here from Boston back in July and I live in downtown Seattle.

I was instructing for a track day club back in New England called SCDA (http://www.scda1.com). I also used to teach at a defensive driving school
(http://www.driveincontrol.com/) part time as well. I would love to instruct and get some track time at some local clubs out here. I used to have my SCCA Comp License but that was a few years ago now. I'd like to get it again someday soon. After that I crewed for friends and there race teams, I've built quite a few race cars from the ground up and a lot of race engines as well. So if anyone in the area goes to track day clubs or SCCA events it would be cool to tag along and get involved. I'm looking to do another licensing school to get my comp license back as well, but would need to find a rental race car.

I have a mostly stock black 2011 WRX hatchback, love this car. All that's done is a downpipe and tune by my awesome friends back east at Dentsport Garage (http://www.dentsport.com/). Next mod is to put some STI brembos on it as the stock 11" brakes aren't up to track duty. My car still has the MA state plates on it so I should be easy to spot.

Before this car I had a 2007 MazdaSpeed3 that wasn't aging well at 90,000 miles on the odometer. I was looking to trade it when it got totaled by a drunk driver that crashed into when it was parked. I took the insurance money from that car and bought my subie. Best choice I made.

I'm going to attend some of the local meets pretty soon so I'm looking forward to meeting some fellow car guys.

Thanks for the bandwidth all.
