2006 Track Calendar

Since I was bored today, I decided to make some margaritas, and put all the events from various track orgs onto a yahoo calendar. This includes NESBA, CCS, WERA, PTT, STAR, some STT, DESMO Indiana, Curve Chasers, etc. I'll update with more events as they are released. Maybe some of you will find this useful?

Let me know if you see mistakes, or would like something added.

Thanks Barry! It's good to see it all in one place. Then you can see things like the fact that the April Road America NESBA dates are going to be full of CCS racers. On those days, expect a full pit and plenty of activity. I've been to these kinds of days before, and there are no real problems, just a lot more of a crowd that you might otherwise expect on a weekday.

How about the Barber dates! Well done. I'm going to print it out, take it to the library where they have a copier that does legel size and make a LARGE wall calendar so I don't miss anything!!!!

Nesba always gets the days right before the CCS races. Aside from the CCS races, the national series (damn, what's it called now) is there that weekend.

Last year it was f'n cold the race weekend, but not as bad during the week.

Looks like all the major local groups are on there

Good thinking!

Awesome job Barry. One more question. I also have an SBC Global account. How can I transfer (steal) your calander to mine. Is it possible?

Garth, you can overlay my calendar onto your Yahoo calendar by using the "Time Guide" feature. More info here http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/cal/cal-26.html


Eddie, I don't see any way to export my calendar to your Outlook program.... maybe someone more knowledgable will chime in.

Well, I got to say, Nesba has the choice dates. 4 days at Road America, a whole bunch at Putnam, a bunch at Blackhawk, and a bunch at Autobahn. Not to mention the weekend at Gingerman. Its going to be one hell of a season.

Autobahn released their 2006 schedule. I noticed a few NESBA dates on there that NESBA hasn't announced. I added them to the calendar, but they seem kinda fishy..... full track the day after the Gingerman weekend in Sept, full track the day after the Putnam weekend in October, and south track Fri. June 2.
