Effing great. Now if they'd only do the same thing at VIR or Summit, I'd be THERE, too.

I just wish there was something like that 3,000 freakin' miles to the east.

I have a great solution move to Seattle WA. There's a great track 40 miles from here. Pacific raceway. they have good tracks in Vancouver area, Portland and Spokan not to mention all the tracks in CA. Some freinds and I will be taking the bike's down to Laguna Wends. Well have a great time on the East Coast. Oh yeah we have 2 to 3 track days a month at Pacific Raceway. Damn life sure is tough here.

Default California ain't the only place with a track

Come down to Savnnah, Georgia!



We have Roebling Road just 15 minutes from town. The county fathers also saw fit to put in a 2.0 mile road course right across from downtown too-although inactive at present it is available if you can put together an event. Road Atlanta is only four hours away, Carolina Motor Sports Park is only three hours away, North Florida has a track about three hours away and Taladega GP, a tight and fun course that can be run both clockwise and counter-clockwise is only about five hours away. Not to mention what is going to be happening in Birmingham Alabama-also about five hours away. VIR is about six hours away! You guys in the land of fruit and nuts (aka known as California) are not the only ones that can get a track fix-and you don't have to drive 1,000 miles to get to a selection of good tracks.



There is a motorcycle world outside of CA too!

Default "Mr. Blutowski----zero point zero."

Hackfu, you won my heart with your Animal House quote. As designated by my name, I am a quotable movie line junkie. I'll be in Cali on a missions trip at the time......Unfortunately, up in Seaside, and sans bike.......darnit......

That's 10 miles from Laguna Seca! What's the unfortunate part?

Don't forget Daytona - Two hours South of Savannah. (Daytona hosts CCS races a couple times a year)

Default ARRRRGH!!! $@#&!!!

Sounds to me like MO and a few readers will be there. I am currently sportin fiberglass on two limbs, following a high speed crash at Buttonwillow two weeks ago, see 2wf article:



http://www.2wf.com/articles/news/9FF...E098D2DB05.asp



I can't make any July dates; however, Fasttrack is also holding a track day (on the full AMA course w/ oval section), on August 2nd, 3rd & 4th for $175. I'll be there to sort-out my crash repairs/adjustments. We should all go to the August track day, shoot some photos, tell some lies and generally have an old fashioned Spodefest.
