Hey! Anyone wanna do a free trackday??? **Closed for entries**

I was on the phone with Fred this morning from Chicago Cycle, we were shootin the shit about the old days and bustin each others balls like we always do. we got to talking about this track day they are sponsoring along with Apex2Apex.net through PTT. To make a long story short, Fred got them to give us a free track day day at autobahn north for the weekend of july 5th or 6th, which of course I am passing along to the members.

Closed for entries!!



Requirements for winning:
  • No special requirements beyond being a CLSB member in good standing.
  • no PTT membership required.
  • Send me an email with "PTT Trackday" in the subject line. **********
  • include your:
    1. full name
    2. screen name
    3. date preferred (5th or 6th)
    4. and you experience level (i.e. newb, B, I or A).

winner will be picked wednesday morning the 25th. good luck everyone and enjoy.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

if fairness is an issue I can do my old lottery system where we let the State of IL pick 3 drawing decide the winner

It's a little system we used back in the day when I was a mod on SBN. once all the entries are in, I randomly assign everyone a 2 digit number 00-99, then we all watch the lottery drawing on the scheduled night, the last two numbers final numbers on the pick 3 drawing determine the winner of the track day. The fairest way I have ever come up with to do stuff like this.

Would it be possible to hang out and watch to see how track days work? I'm really curious to go, but not 100% ready to fully participate. I have a pair: they just need to grow a little bigger. hehe
