Track Day in Central California...

....I just got work from Carrie at Buttonwillow Raceway.

The only Monday they have available in October is the 1st... Track rental with Insurance, Advanced Life Support (required) and Cornerworkers will be $7400.00.

If we get 40 people to commit, we'll be at about $185.00 per... not bad for a full day on the track without group restrictions... there are some extras (like the PA System) that would not be bad to have... but not needed...

I will need to let her know fairly quickly and they will need a $2000 deposit...

So, here it is... I'd be willing to pay up to $250 (30 people) but, as I said... on a track like Buttonwillow, 40 rider quickly disperse...

Let me know folks...

Thanks

Sounds like fun. I think 3 to 5 of us from San Jose BMW would likely attend, possibly including Brian Parriott and the San Jose race bikes.

...let me know, I don't think we have to much time to commit... if all else fails, we can always look into Novemeber, but the days are going to be short and fairly cool...

signit98,
Fresno BMW is willing to promote this trackday through their email blast and I can also promote it through our local club. We could expect at least 15 riders and possibly as many as 30 from a promotion here. The promotion would be to only BMW rider/club members.
I don't want to hijack the PP trackday you`re setting up so let me me know if you want me to do this.

...as you can see by the stellar response, Tim... most of the PP Board members are not overly interested...

The problem I have is as follows... if I commit, I have to throw $3500 down and I am stuck with it, if we don't get enough people together to go with it... as I said, 30 people would still mean $250 or so...

I would love for you guys to promote that, but then we need instant commitment... I am not going to stick my neck out for that much money without having a backup...

I'd be willing to organize everything and put it all through the motions so that everyone involved basically comes, listens to the briefing and then - hopefull - has a fun filled day, riding one of the best tracks i know...

I think part of the problem lies in the fact that very few people here know me and - of course - that might create a trust issue... but it can only be done in good faith.

As such, if you want to promote it, fine... but it's not a done deal and it will not until I have respective finacial commitment and you should make that very clear... and by that time, the 1st of October might be gone... we can always shoot for an alternate day, but that might not fly for some folks that had the 1st of october open... see the dillema?

Your call, Tim... I just thought it was a grand idea and that more people were interested in riding their hearts out without speed limits, oncoming traffic and blind corners... not so, it seems.

If all else fails, I'll just go and join the track club and about 120 of my best friends for one of their track days...

Ralf

...Ivan, I NEVER said that it would be limited to BMW's... it does not matter what you ride (well, you push-pedal-trike may be a bit slow) for as long as you promise to have fun (which tere is NO DOUBT in my mind YOU will!)

It's for all kinda bikes... just a track day limited to people we know (someone who knows soneone, who has heard of this guy) that's how I made it into the TC ride...

Plain Ol Fun... maybe this will loosen things up a bit!

...If we keep it around 40 riders, there is ABSOLUTELY NO NEED for a b c stuff... that's is only on organized track days to separate the masses and the skills... we would operate under a different understanding!

Chris Gueting may reside in Duram... But Chis Gueting the anti- Chris.... is probably somewhere near the east coast.
