Thanks, that was towards the end of my racing career, all 58 ponies pushing on those.

should i?
I think that's going to be too close to the other day for me, I was thinking later in the season. If you plan on a Sept date I'm in, not the 22nd though.

How come every private Grattan day has 'advanced only' limitations?

I might have ONE Grattan weekend in by that time. STT has some dates in July. But I doubt I'll be advanced enough.

I have a feeling some folks on SVRider will be doing a day there.

I'm there. If you're turning sub 1:50's you should be fine.

Personally slow riders never bother me there, because it's a wide track and really easy to pass on BECAUSE it's so technical. The fast guys have a distinct advantage over the slower ones that seems to be more pronounced than at other tracks.

i got some dates in july 7,21,28 and Aug 11,18 so far all these dates are mondays.
we can only book from monday to thursday.


what do you guys think?
sure alittle warm...but its going to be an open track for us.

OR i can check some other dates later in the year or maybe in the month of MAY...but may is to risky and for the trip up there is risky too.

SO, SIGN up if you want to RIDE gratten....and we will pan out the date.
I'll be there the weekend of July 19-20 for a WERA National Endurance Race and a National Challenge race. If I don't kill myself there that weekend I could be down for Monday the 21st?? ummm

Thats what I was thinking. I'd like to go out for the WERA national event (to watch, not ride, the damn WERA rules suck for me!!! :-( and it would be super cool to watch DanO and company give the big Vesrah/AOD/NOTB endurance guys a run for thier money. Hell I might even go up on Thursday for the practice and stay the whole extended weekend.

I love this idea because the track will still be clean and swept from the WERA race and it should have some good rubber down to show you some fast lines for bikes.

I think you can camp at this track. Might make a fun weekd to watch the races them ride it on Monday. It's supposed to be a great spectator track.
