UPDATED: phozed's private trackday at Grattan 8/20
I've mailed Grattan a certified check so we're good to go for August 20th. It will cost $115 dollars per rider. Please PM or email me your: email address, real name, and emergency contact information. I will respond with my home address to send payment. I'm going to ask that you please send me your money ASAP so I'll know where I stand - I put my money down and since I'm taking the finanical risk, I'd really appreciate your support with this.
The August dates weren't very flexible, We had a choice of two days and selected August 20th.
As of right now the cost is going to be 115$/rider. If you're attending you must pay me in advance (personal checks or cash, no paypal sorry) and the sooner the better. I'm not doing this to make money, but I will charge each rider a little more than cost to try and cover my ass if someone doesn't show/pay. I'm also going to tip the ambulance and corner workers some if I have the money left over.
important: I'm honestly sorry, but I will NOT be issuing refunds... I'm not Best Buy and don't want to worry about constantly updating the cost to the other riders. I will let someone else take your already-paid for spot, provided you handle everything. If it's a truly exceptional circumstance email me and we'll see what we can do.
This is a show up and ride event, there won't be any control riders or slow groups, so a fair amount of experience is required. Full-on safety gear is required. There will be passing everywhere so if you can't hold or your line or don't know what that means sorry you're not who the trackday is aimed towards. Oil-filters, oil fill and drain plugs must be safety wired, mirrors removed, all plastic lenses taped, Water Wetter, newish tires, etc.. These things MUST be done or you cannot ride. That being said, this is a trackday and NOT a race, NO UNSAFE PASSING, NO STUFFING INTO CORNERS, etc... we're out there to have some fun and ride, leave the superhero antics for the races. If you have to think twice about a pass, you should wait until it's safe - please!!! Everyone who attends MUST sign the waivers! If you have a problem with that don't come. I'm NOT looking just for riders who can cut a fast lap, I'm looking for people who can keep their line and not get spooked if they get passed in a corner.
Open track all day except for lunch - enter and exit when you want. Don't be an ass, no wheelies or showboating on or off the track - I don't want to be put in the spot to have to listen to the track owners yell at me and I don't want to yell at anyone else. If you get spotted doing it and I hear about it (just once) you're done for the day, and won't be invited back again, so keep that in mind after the last session. My goal is to spend as little time administrating this thing as possible and riding as much as I can - your cooperation in this is greatly appreciated Lunch will NOT be provided.
Grattan's rain insurance: it's my understanding that we'll have to eat the cost of the EMTs in the event of rain, but we will be able to reschedule in the future without having to eat the cost of the track rental. This is the track's policy as it was explained to me - but to cover my ass: rain insurace will be whatever Grattan raceway says in the event of rain. But it sounds like, worst case, we'll have to reschedule for another date and pay for the EMTs again.
Camping is allowed the night before the event in the OUTER PADDOCK only.
As of 7/29, I have 20 confirmed spots, and 6 maybes, so if you're thinking about attending I'd suggest you make up your mind quick! If you have any questions PM me.
