Heh - if you talk like anything you post, I would agree with you I'm certainly not the one to get offended, but yeah, she'd be better off playing with her friends, she hates the miata anyway as it sometimes takes her place. She doesn't like it when I'm drunk anyway. Found the NOLA on the nasatx, still TBD...

You know I have no problems open carrying. I might suck it up and come out to the NOLA event. It is only a 12 hour drive. I will have to see how busy I am at work and how much money I have.

I really need to start working the street corners to be able to afford this track addition.

Tomorrow - but in this case next month - enter Stewart Paradox...

Actually, their website says the North track is 100% paved now... unlike AMP outside Atlanta...

So how serious are you guys about going out to the NOLA event? It is a 13 hour drive for me and I would want to tow my car out if I am going that far. If there is actually going to be a large presence of the Texas crew I might suck it up* and splurge to come out**.

*Suck off guys on the street corner for gas money.
** come out of the closet.

Well I guess I should start pestering family to let me borrow a truck of some sort to tow with, and then get to saving up gas money.

Is the sign up online yet? I looked at the NASA sight Monday and could not find it.

So will we have to submit to breathalizer tests in the morn? If so I'll probably fail. Bringing back bad memories of Sat morn at the Petit...

No sign-up yet - its on TX Region's site but can't register for it yet (but it's not saying TBD now) - doubt it'll be posted on NASA's site until it's 100% a go?

It's a 3-day event, what's the schedule for friday? TX doesn't have my TT paperwork, so I'll probably just do DE4

Signs I saw at ECR last weekend have a 3 hour enduro on Friday, and Sat/Sun is DE/TT. Not sure if they'll be adding race groups to the schedule

I haven't seen full details on the weekend, however.

it is 100% on. Our regions leader spoke to NOLA last week and they said they would be ready for sure. they're allowing the final layer to cure and will do a few test and tunes before we show up. We will be the first group to have an event there though.

we are going to be running the north track (long) 2.75mi. course. 16 Turns
3360' Straight, 40-50' Width

Any idea on a rough price estimate? I saw in one of the links a single track day there for $269. Hopefully doing 2 days is not that much more then that.

Also do you know if they have power hookups where we should be camping?

well that was probably for their own trackday. NASA is usually about $290 for the weekend.

don't have any details, but power at camping area is not the norm. people usually have rv's with generators or just pop tents. but who knows, this being a new track and all maybe they are that fancy.

Should be party of the year! Is this is a SE and TX event? If so then maybe TT it's in the works - if not, then maybe I should get paperwork in for the TX region so I can run with you big-boys - or at least try. At least we'll all be handicapped being a new track learning the line

yup, mid-south, se, and tx. you don't need all that, just sign up for your class. unless you plan on running the whole season in tx, we won't need your paper work. just get there.
