sweet! Looks like we're going to have a good CLSB turnout. I'll be on the Red Duc 749R, towed by a grey Infiniti g35. Stop by and say hi! Thinking about camping myself, dunno if I can cram all of the stuff into my car. I really need a truck!

I will be taking my 750 out for its first trip at the track, and depending on how comfortable I am on pilot powers, I may or may not open her up. After riding on DOT race rubber for the past 7 track days, Im a little uneasy with the idea of street tires. But there are people out there who have run 1:21s at Blackhawk (Todd-Murff99) or more than likely faster. I figure a new set of PP's should work just fine. Im just paranoid, thats all.

So hopefully they will grip well and I can run some more 1:23's or faster. If things arent jiving, then I guess I just take it easy and work on body position.

Pirelli Diablo Corsa's are about equal to the Pilot Powers
and those are easily reliable into the 19's ....

I ran a Pilot Power rear with an H2 front easily that hard.


I do not reccoemend the H2 / Pilot Power Combo BTW.

Opener for me as well!
Signed up for the weekend, but I'll probably have to split mid-day on Sunday lest I feel the wrath of ditching Mom on Mother's Day.

I'll most likely head up on Friday night and camp (aka sleep in the back of the Jeep)

I'll be wandering around like an idiot by T5 if anyone needs me.

+1, though I already backed out of Sunday. It's a little tough to pull it off when you already ditched the family on Easter.

But, I'll be there on Saturday, anyway.

No, I use the normal facilities. I dont think Blackhawk management would like it too much if I were
using the infield as my personal latrine.

Well I can pretty safely say you do not need to pack a grill. Your welcome to throw some things on ours. One of my brothers customers is weber so he scored a super sweet grilling rig.

Just look for a 24' black trailer with the two stoke smoke for extra flavor
