Just an update to this:

The event was so-so, but had a lot of potential.  Turnout for the enduro was pretty horrible, 5 whole cars, quickly cut down to 4 when one blew a rod through the block.

Anyway, we won the race by 13 laps I think.

We didn't see the autocross but it seemed small

The instructor rides looked fun, pretty much all in different variants of porsche 911's

The hot laps were ok, 10 laps for $40 I think, was target more at rich people who think they can drive their cars.

The flashlight drags had what seemed like 200 cars and maybe 300 spectators, it was kind of cool because most were there at the end of the enduro.

Anyway, hopefully next year the enduro takes on a little stronger, the track is pretty fun, its close, and the facilities are good.

I'll get it renewed tomorrow and e-mail you when its back online.

Solo (Autocross) / Re: 7/25 FLR OOR - Anyone going?
« on: July 15, 2010, 10:56:17 pm »
Sorry guys, lemons weekend so I won't be there so don't count me as 1.

25
Thanks, looks good.

26
Reg closes by 10, tech will be walk around tech, course setup should be done by 10 as well (will be simple, and may change throughout the day).  If we get there by 730/800 we'll be fine.  Right now only 14 are pre-registered.  If that number gets closer to 30, we might want to do setup earlier to allow for more hands for the other tasks.

27
I'm not approved to post or whatever on that forum, someone mind cross-posting for us?

28
Same as a regular event.  Doing both will save $10

Course setup will be at 4pm, some of the usual characters won't be there, so this is your chance to not have to run a crappy dave potocki course :-) Come on out and have a hand at course design.
