Is anyone in for open track Feb 5 and 6 at MSR.

This may be my last chance for track time for a while with the new pooper coming.

I'm sure David needs to test his Cool Cobra.

I wish like heck I had the time to make it?!! :( :(

My first track event of this year will not be till MArch, when I do Ed Paez's TWS event with the Supra Club. I will be instructing for that one.

Then my next one will be the SVTOA event at Autobahn in Chicago. Then, the SVTOA event at TWS in June.

If you have never been to MSR before, you are in for a REAL treat!!!! It is an AWESOME track!! Not nearly as fast (top speedwise), but a ton of fun, and VERY safe!!

My first may not be till after March as I have to instruct lifeguarding classes every weekend through Feb & March. I'd love to get in more track time before our TWS event....I just need to do a few mods to the car beforehand. :(

If I happen to be in town, I'll go! Is this for the circle track, or Drag strip? I did th edrag strip last week, 8.1 was my best time, could not hook at all! :rotf:

Chuck, when you hear "TRACK" mentioned on here without any description, it mean Open Track (road racing). We do the other stuff too, obviously (drag racing, auto-x, top speed mile runs), but we are a bunch of Open track junkies. If you do TWS... you will understand ;)

MSR Is Motor Sport Ranch outside of Dallas, its a road coarse

Open Track ...
Is usually understood to be a road race TRACK... that has been OPENed to street cars and street drivers, so we can enjoy the car in a fast, fun and safe environment...

So when you hear OPEN TRACK...
Think NONCONTACT street car road racing.... only it's not really a race.

It is unbelievably fun!!!
