Thunderin Thursdays at ACC!

Sooo,

Would you guys (and gals) be interested in Thursday track events at ACC (N/C)?

Heres the deal I have two scheduled NOT on our current public schedule (June/July)

It's just like a normal (3 group) track day but on a Thursday. Maybe an open/lite instruction novice too.

Price is 150.00 but not more than 165.00 (Not set in stone just yet)

Anyone?

Possible. You need to work on evening trackdays say 3/4-8pm or something at ACC.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

I'm planning on going to Gingerman's open track nights a few times this year already so that's not something I need more of. ACC on a weekday, afternoon, evening would be great though.

Gingerman yes, ACC north yes. ACC south no. Also membership being waved is also a deciding factor.

The membership fee somehow doesn't bother me as much as the extra $5 at the gate that I pay even though I've already paid my entry fees. I would upset me less to just pay that extra $5 along with the registration rather than nickel and dimming me at the gate.

Just a word of cautiion. There is no EMS on-site at those events. That's a risk factor that is unacceptable for me.

Every event we do or will do has on-site EMS present, it is an elemental safety factor for which there is no exception.

We have also been bouncing around the possability of All-in'Two events at Autobahn on a Thursday. These include all riders (except first time on-track) and offer you 30 minutes per hour of track time. Star School and Pridmore's CLASS use this model.

Whould this format interst you folks?

Couple of noteworthy items about evening events at GingerMan vs ACC.
GingerMan is on the extreme western edge of the eastern time zone.. ACC is on the eastern fringe of the central time zone.. that means that GingerMan has about 50 minutes more daylight in the evenings on teh same day as ACC.

Noted, again, just like from every other post about Gingerman open track nights that you posted this on.

On the plus side, they don't charge me an extra $5 over what they claim to be charging me when I get there.

Interested in any track day. I can get a Thursday (or any other weekday) off easier than a weekend. People don't mind working a weekday for me as much as weekends.

Interested in ACC during the week. Gingerman, at 2-1/2 hours each way, less so. But I love Gingerman and will see you out there as well.
