  • SZ10 Potential road courses

    How far would you be willing to drive to race on a road course, and how much would you be willing to pay? Right now the single biggest holdup in getting an agenda together for SZ is where we would race, or if we would race at all. It turns out getting a track reserved is a bigger challenge than I anticipated due to certain political issues in the area and I don't want to commit to something else unless I know I'll have the support of attendees.

    Please let me know the distance you would be willing to drive to get to a track in terms of time (i.e. 'no more than one hour'). If you are certain you wouldn't race your car please let me know about that, too.

    Presuming I drive out to SZ, I'd certainly be willing to drive about an hour for a track.

        if I come out from cali again I'd most likely be willing to travel out of the way for a track day. not to mention I'd be trolling with the fusion again. my contour is a magnet for idiot drivers and is yet again driveway designated until I get the time and money together to fix it. but I am very interested in bringing the fusion out with the S/C up and running right. This is all in hopes that another tornado doesn't blow me off the road like after sz08

                I'm open to it, but believe it or not it will probably be harder to get an auto-x session going than to get a track for a day. The only place I know of in the area that does auto-x is Miller Park, and since May is baseball season I won't know what the availability is for the parking lot until the 2010 schedule is released.

                  I don't mind driving an hour to spectate a race and probably pay $10-15 to do so.
                  (we most likely won't have our cars with us to race at SZ)

                          I think if would be great if a full track day could be setup. One that had a instructor led portion at the beginning for us newbies. I know a guy locally that I can talk to and see if he'd be willing to set something up in WI. As he has done events in MN and a few in Iowa as well... don't see any reason why WI would be to far out of the way. Let me know what you guys think. I'd be willing to help it get setup.

                            We had a full day at Waterford Hills in '08, along with some instruction for newbies. Feedback from the first-timers was favorable.

                              CJ and I have been discussing the possibility of getting the Bondurant cars back together for a reunion of sorts, and with Frank (CSVTFGM) now in the mix, we could get all the surviving Bondurant Contours together for the first time outside of the confines of the school, and maybe he would be nice enough to bring the Saleen as well (hint-hint).

                              What's better is that with our cars' previous roles as instructor cars, maybe they could see duty as such again at a track day for SZ, giving novice racers a view of the proper racing line from an instructor.

                              CJ and Frank, any comments? Personally, Road America would be great, but the cost wouldn't be feasible. Black Hawk Farms could be an option, though. If SZ coincides with another club's event, then the costs could be more reasonable than renting a track outright.
