Twilight Led W/ Rush Hour At Autobahn Aug 14th

[/B]I just added (I'll get Monte to post a purchase link on the STT site asap) a new event. We did this last year and it was a great time! Here's the details;

Name: "STT LED w/ RUSH HOUR"
Registration: opens a 4PM
Registration: closes 4:40
Riders meeting: 4:41
Track is hot: 5PM SHARP
Rush Hour: 8PM

OPEN HOT TRACK FROM 5 TO 8 PM! ENTER AND EXIT WHEN YOU WANT! That's 3 full hours of track time.

Only "I" and "A" riders permitted. Slightly modified rules, so make sure you are good "I" rider and are comfortable with a little closer passing guidelines.

AT 8PM you exit the track and get in a BMW for RUSH HOUR FAST LAPS!! ALL the drivers, and some previous car racers (STT coaches), were trained by Tom Bagley an IRL race champion.

8:30 PM you pack up and are welcome to meet/ hangout with STT staff at Hero's west for dinner (sorry I ain't buying).

Cost for CLSB members in good standing is $135.00. Make sure you put in the "comments" box that you are a (copy/paste: CLSB member in good standing. My cost $135.00)


Also, I will be the event director. I will set up one-on-one sessions for ANY CLSB member that wants individual instruction. Just meet w/me and I'll assign you a coach.

Well, who's in?


One last thing there may be a 5.00 gate fee. Not sure just yet.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

NO SIR! You do not need a membership

Anyway, is anyone planning on going to Heros afterwards? I don't get a chance to hangout much due to "responibilities". Thought it might be fun. I don't want to be the coordinator for social gatherings, cuz they never work out right for me, so does someone wanna add a post in the gatherings section?

Also, you don't have to ride to hang with us at the track.

Terra, you can ride this event. you have a solid enough line and are predictable. you don't multi steer or violate throttle rule so sign up

when you sign up put CLSB member in the comments box. The stt office staff will adjust it on your credit card. make sure you note it's only 135.00 for you. See my original post and copy/paste what I wrote to save some time for yourself

You can get with a coach and have him or her coach you on a one on one basis when your riding the bike. Coaches can help you with any issue you have. Seriously, take advantage of it. You'll benefit greatly from it.

I can not believe you said that

You can sooooo ride in that event. I saw your post that you are riding but I still can not believe you said that out loud. You are starting to sound like me.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

On a side note there was a screw up and it posted as 145 not 150...we left it at 145 cuz it looks awful shady when you play the raising rate game.

I wanted you guys to get a 15 dollar discount, but this time 10 will have to do...sorry bout that. I'll make sure it 15 next go around even if it's 130 for the CLSB!!!
