Grattan june 23/24????

So i just got an invite to a wedding in Michigan June 23rd. Do skip the wedding, go to the track day at grattan on the 23rd and hope to make it to the reception in time? I don't think I want to ride on the 24th as I will be hungover for sure. Anyone else going?

I am going for sure. As far as riding at Grattan Sunday morning hung over... I thought that was part of the charm.

well, the Grattan bar the last event wasnt near what it was last year. As for the track I never got comfortable there at all. The best way I came up with to describe it was this:
"At Putnam, RA, Barber, etc... I feel like if I do a lap that is 90% correct I will not have a problem, but at Grattan I felt that unless I was at 98% correct I was going to be on my back. Due to the shitty surface (pot holes, "ridges" in the apexs of turns, track crumbling on the race line, etc)

Is it all in my head.... yep, but it still wasnt fun for me there. If they repave though it would be a sweet layout.


For me I will be staying away from that track unless they repave
