I will be there in TTD. My goal is to reset the track record for the class. It won't be hard unless it is raining.

I need to see about getting my provision license so I can do the 3 hour Friday enduro. If not I will be running HPDE 3.

I really hope to be there to see it! I think I am going to skip the track day I had scheduled for March 23 and save up for this instead. The ASR track day was $60 (lol) compared to the $299 for a two-day HPDE1 that I would sign up for. I'm sure getting instructed here would be much better than just lapping away with no idea what I was doing. Any idea what time this will start Saturday? I unfortunately get off work at 11pm Friday night and this place is 8 hours away from me.

Going to the track and trying to focus on essentially no rest is a terrible idea.

I live 30 minutes from Hallett and I make sure to get to bed early and layoff the booze.

This is especially true if you've never been on track. That first weekend of instruction is quite draining for green students. I do agree that instruction would be much better than simply being let out on track; I can't believe that tracks do that, honestly.

In that case, I'd just do Sunday.

^Yeah, go out to the track Saturday afternoon, watch, familiarize yourself with where everything is.......tower, restrooms, grid, etc. Then get a good night of sleep Saturday.

I think I might come down with something and have to take a sick day that Friday . I want instruction! Tracks around here really dont seem to care that much about it.

I'll be out there running TTE.

If you can't swing the sick out on Friday, sign up for Sunday and get some right seat time on Saturday afternoon.

I've done some research and I can definitely get sick that Friday. I have the sick days so I might as well use them! Did I mention I want proper instruction?

I've only driven CW once (rarely run this direction) but I'll ride with you or maybe you can grab a ride with me in DE3 or something. PM RLogan. Try not to be all annoying and nerdy, bring us beer.

Stop typing "instruction" or I'll put a gun in my mouth and you'll have to go out with someone else.

Damn, almost got a proper-sized crew going to Texas World Speedway. If jacob300zx and ZX-Tex will attend, I'll come out of hiding to unleash the new and improved 0086.
