No, I want to be there.

Finding a $45k/year job that's flexible to me crewing with a race car and doing driving events doesn't just appear. For now, I'm really poor.

Heard back from Eric and will be able to register a co-driver.

As long as my car is ready I'll be out there.

I will be on street tires unless I find some take-offs, but will be my first time on a track anyhow...should be grinnin' more than going fast.

Looking forward to meeting a couple of you guys.

Take the welding route like me and at least you'll drive. What exactly do you have coming? By whom?

an exact copy of Savington's set-up with a gt2860rs. Same motor, same exhaust, same turbo parts, smaller turbo. After the money I spent repairing the manifold I'm just going to sell it in its current, perfect condition. I'm tired of possible fixes, going for the glory.

There is virtually no market for used turbo gear, so I'd just bin it anyway...

It is mega fun on a bike, still my favorite track. Current CMRA track record (CMRA :: Central Motorcycle Roadracing Association) for the 2.9 CCW is a 1:41.717 by Dane Westby. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. That is ******* psychotic fast.

Still seems like it would be fun in a car. I hope to find out soon.

Think it depends on who is running it and what group you're in.

You should give Eric or Bo a call and ask (Contact info above).

42 people are signed up as of today.

What's everyone's first name and car, I'll update the roster in the initial post.

If anyone wants to meet up Friday night, I'm only 15 minutes from the track.

I am still trying to come to this. I haven't signed up yet, obviously, but it all depends on how crazy everything seems it will be. My wedding is the weekend before that, so things will be hectic for a couple weeks even after.

I wish I could come out. I've got a good paying route that I do every saturday and I can't swing it this time. I'm shooting for the TWS event if it happens....
