Last chance track days

I was at an open track day for cars yesterday @ Gman. I asked about bikes, and was told that if we have 10+ bikes we can run 20 min/cars, 20 min/bikes, all day for $125. All their Sundays are open for the rest of the year if the weather holds out. The track manager told me to call them on Wednesday to check the weather. Anyone interested?

btw yesterday rocked in the vette. now the lame GY's have cold tear all along the edges.

Shit man, I'm up for it this Sunday at Gingerman if its not raining.

Do we have to pre-pay or can we just play it by ear and see if the weather will be OK?

I'm trying to do both. Bob says if the forcast is good, he can give an answer Wed or thurs. If they do bikes, we need 10 riders though. I guess more guys are into posing than going fast lately...

How far is Gingerman? I'd love to do one more track day before the season is over.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Hey Allen,

How does one go about setting this up? Does any $ need to be fronted, etc? Or do we just get 10 guys together and show up?

I think DanO and I would both be down, and could probably round up ~5 guys for bikes. Is there a minimum # needed for cars? I can probably get a few guys from the MkIVChicago and MFBA if we need more cars.
