Harris Hill Road, San Marcos, TX: http://harrishillroad.com/

Please join us for a rare opportunity: an S2KCA-sponsored HPDE track day at Harris Hill Road! This new racetrack features 1.8 miles of new asphalt covering twists, turns, and elevation changes. The event is capped at 45 cars so that all drivers will get plenty of uncrowded track time to learn and play. Instructors are provided to all first-timers. This track is a private, members-only facility and it's a special privilege to be invited to hold an event here.

NOTE: we reserve the right to remove anyone who, in our judgment, at the event is acting in a reckless or uncooperative way, and entry fees will not be refunded.
Registration fees are $170 for S2KCA Club Members and $185 for non-members.
Cars are required to have passed a tech inspection 30 days or less before the event by a qualified ASE mechanic.

Follow this link for more information and registration: http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.cfm/event/event.advert/uidEvent/E1BFFB63-0EA4-CF5C-31E20DA0621ABD72
Note that the event is now open to all makes and models. This will be a great opportunity to compare notes with other SVT drivers, as well as learn from other types of cars.

===> UPDATE: registration is officially extended thru Friday 5 PM Central. But, DON'T WAIT!
Why? Because drivers will be split up amongst beginner and advanced students depending on their track experience. If, for example, a class fills up, then additional registrations for that class won't be able to be accepted.




THE TRACK
H2R is nestled in the hills of northeastern San Marcos, Texas. The course is very easily accessible, sitting approximately 2.5 miles east of IH-35, approximately 2 miles west of Texas Highway 21, and a little over 2.5 miles from the San Marcos airport.
We're right in your backyard. H2R is just 26 miles from downtown Austin and approximately 55 miles from downtown San Antonio.
H2R operations are housed in a 6,000 square foot clubhouse overlooking 150 acres of land with a very nice view of downtown San Marcos and Texas State University.
The track is a 1.8-mile asphalt road course, 36-feet wide. The pit lane consists of a 24-foot wide, 1/4-mile asphalt strip. The staging area includes the capacity for up to 60 cars -- including 30 covered parking spaces and 30 uncovered parking spaces.

I was out there last Thursday all afternoon and it's a blast...

There are several vids on YouTube, but none of them really give you the feeling for the elevation changes and the extent of the downhill drop. We'll be running clockwise, so you will get the sudden roller-coaster downhill effect...!
