and Rharris was too loud with his all motor monster last time. unfortunately he put a muffler on it just in time to not run anymore. sucked
so make sure you have a back up plan, especially if your n/a.
I have a Racepac G2X we can pass around now.

OK so 1/2 day will be $133 and full day will be $200. Full day would be from 9 to 6. 1/2 day would be from 9 to 2. The best thing for everyone IMO is to go for the full day. So, when Spoolin goes out at 4pm and sets a smoking fast lap, then everyone will have a chance to retaliate. And, you have all day to test, tune, and compare notes.

I want to set this up so everyone pays at the track when they get there. No need to run the money through me. I think it would be a good idea to use an armband that you get after paying (John Z do you know where to get those?). Everyone needs to have HPDE 3 or 4 experience, and know how to get around a track without instruction.

This will be an epic track day but I want to be clear about this up-front. I am not making any money on this deal. I'm hosting this, and am happy to do it, so you guys can get back to H2R and get in some plentiful, hassle-free open track time. I want my track time to be hassle-free too so everyone needs to be like Fonzie...

Jules: ...We're gonna be like... little Fonzies here. And what's Fonzie like? Come on Yolanda what's Fonzie like?
Yolanda: Cool?
Jules: What?
Yolanda: He's cool.
Jules: Correctamundo. And that's what we're gonna be. We're gonna be cool.

If I have a job, I'm happy to run the full day.

Nope, cannot make it. I am really busy at work and will probably be slaving instead.

OK they extended the calendar out a bit and it looks like Oct 8 and 9 are member days. So either one of those days will do. Any preference for Saturday or Sunday?
