Grattan, Putnam, Road America, and Blackhawk are less than 4 hours away. That's 26 days right there.

Lazy MF'ers want to walk out your front door and be at the track.

I know.

But c'mon, you know it was nice sleeping in your own bed and having a 10 minute drive to the track.

Yeah, Heartland is in Topeka, KS. A time consuming, but relaxing drive. The track runs counter-clockwise, so most of the turns are lefts (very different from most of the tracks we run).

I'll admit, I like Autobahn weekends. It's certainly easier to justify to the wife. But I'm looking forward to hitting Grattan, MAM, and Heartland more than once a year. I find it's hard to get motivated to go fast when you're not coming back for 12 months.

Here ya go, here are the current Midwest Dates in an easier to view format:
http://ical.mac.com/brianwink/WINK-NESBA-Midwest

Change the Preferences (bottom left of screen) to default Monthly, start week on Monday for an easier view.
If you have iCal, or know how to subscribe to an ICS calendar, subscribe to the address below:

webcal://ical.mac.com/brianwink/WINK-NESBA-Midwest.ics

If you have Outlook, then Outlook 2007 users can also subscribe to this calendar by using the following steps:

1. Click on Tools>Account Settings, then find the "Internet Calendars" tab.

2. Click "New" and enter the following path for the Internet Calendar location:
webcal://ical.mac.com/brianwink/WINK-NESBA-Midwest.ics

3. Click "Add".

4. Your Subscription Options will now be displayed. The default folder name is WINK-NESBA-Midwest, but you can change it as necessary.

5. Click "OK" when ready.

6. Click "Close" to complete the subscription. This will be automatically updated this way rather than downloading it.

If you want the National Calendar, follow the same instructions and use these addresses:
http://ical.mac.com/brianwink/WINK-NESBA-National
webcal://ical.mac.com/brianwink/WINK-NESBA-National.ics

If you want the Southeast Calendar, follow the same instructions and use these addresses:
http://ical.mac.com/brianwink/WINK-NESBA-Southeast
webcal://ical.mac.com/brianwink/WINK-NESBA-Southeast.ics

I’ll be doing all the regions as they get posted. Looks like we have some great dates.

Dammit, no ACC South dates? I like that track. As much as I want to chekc out the other tracks, there are a lot of BHF and Putnam dates to keep me busy.

And for those that didn't figure it out:

Download and save this file:
http://ical.mac.com/brianwink/WINK-NESBA-Midwest.ics

Open Outlook, choose File -> Import and Export...
Select Import an iCalendar or vCalendar file (.vcs)
Browse to the saved "WINK-NESBA-Midwest.ics" file and choose it.
Voila!

I have to admit I am a little disappointed as well at the lack of current ACC dates. The twenty minute, 13 mile drive spoiled me. Guess I will "have" to start looking at Grattan and Rd America dates.

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.

Nice to see the dates posted....makes it feel a little closer

Really looking forward to riding with Nesba this season, improving my skills, getting to know some new people, etc.

those are a lot of track days this year, i think more then last year to boot.

awesome!


another thing too, personally i couldn't give a shit about ACC, why? cause only the north course is worth doing, but it gets old real QUICK!

the south side track surface is a POS it getting worse year after year.

and another thing too if anyone else has some negative way of demeaning nesba, go do it somewhere else, i dont wanna hear SHIT like that.

uncalled for and unprofessional!

I kind of like the schedule. I like the north course at autobahn but I'm not that bummed about it. This season I plan on hitting the road a little bit more and checking out some new tracks.
