Let's Talk

Editor's Notebook, July 1998



T.W. Theodore

It's been a quiet week in Thunder Valley. We've been doing a lot of talking about racing, thinking about racing, planning about racing, waiting for the racing. But we can't get enough of the racing. We might want to start a 12 step program to help us with this addiction.


Instead, we've started an online discussion group. It's free and it's easy. All you have to do is sign up and you'll be able to send email messages to the group and receive the messages that other members send to the group.


"members talk about their own racing..."

Most of the group members so far are women race car drivers. You can talk about racing in general, about a particular race you've seen at the track or on television, about your favorite drivers, etc. Mostly, though, the members talk about their own racing experiences. Sometimes they talk about what it's like to be a woman involved in racing. It's a small group right now, but is sure to grow in the next month or so.


Drop in and see if you like it. You can always opt out if it doesn't suit you.


wednesday chat

The Wednesday evening chat sessions are going well. at 9:00pm E.T. (US) every week to chat with a Thunder Valley featured driver. If you've got an idea for a topic or guest host, let me know.


lisa's back

We welcome Lisa Devlin and her Racing Diary back to the pages of Distant Thunder this month. Lisa has been making the switch from her RX7 to a DSR racer. Its been an exercise in slow motion and very frustrating for her and for the readers of her Diary. Take a look.


how about you?

If you'd like to be a contributor to Distant Thunder and have an idea for an article, or a series of articles, send me a message and tell me about it. We're always looking for new material and fresh points of view about racing.


It's been a quiet week in Thunder Valley. Too quiet. We've been talking about racing and encouraging you all to talk about racing. It's time for "Ladies and gentlemen, start...."
