M2 owners drive to Alice's/Skidpad?

Hey guys, I am a bay area local, I track a lot, also drive highway 9 a lot, was wondering if anyone would be interested in a drive to Alice's or Skidpad during the weekend? We can meet at the 76 gas station at the base of the mountain, maybe around 9-10 pm, and drive up the mountain to skidpad and take group pictures possibly? Let me know your ideas, thanks!

What is Skidpad? I know what a skid pad is, I mean is there one near to Alice's?

Another possibility is that this was a result of swype autocorrect and you meant Skyline?

There is a skipad on highway 9 past 4 corners, a nice viewpoint more than a thunderhill esque skidpad haha.

It's just the main lookout/small parking lot a few minutes past the 9/35 junction.


And I'm down. Did you mean 9/10am though?

Edit 2: I also want to check out your seat setup too! I have the same seat but need to figure out a different way of hooking up the belts.

PM haha, don't want to deal with a lot of traffic and bikers. And for sure, once my car is back you can check out my seat setup.

Never thought of lookouts as skidpads but judging by the tire marks, this is definitely a thing!

How's traffic around 9-10 am on that road? I usually try for 6-7am to avoid being stuck behind a pickup truck on my pleasure drive.

I ended up driving up Highway 9 to skyline and stopping by Alices. Supercar hangout! Followed some tweaked 911's on La Honda road for about 30 seconds and they left me in the dust. Great meeting spot
