Hi guys,
Tal, Ricky and I have been talking briefly in another thread about renting HPR. I know that locally we have around 10 GTR owners that like to road course. I think that is about the number we would need to make the day happen. The upside is tons of track time with little to no traffic and the flexibility to pretty much run when we want and pit when we want. I think we could also do some side by side pulls down the back straight if we wanted. I would need to verify with the track manager. I know when I have rented it in the past it was @$700 for the day per car (unlimited drivers in each car). This type of rental is called a semi exclusive. Meaning that if another car wanted to come out they could pay and join in the day. I have done this type of rental the past two years before heading down to Texas and have always had the track to myself for the entire day. If we can coordinate the day with more cars I would think I could get a lesser price.

Please respond in this thread if you would like to attend and how much you would be willing to pay to rent the track. I think we would all have an absolute blast! I will provide lunch if we can make this happen.

Interested in participating;
1) myself
2)Dave

4)Tal

Depending on when it is I am in. curious though do you have any idea on the price drop for each extra car that comes? Also when were you thinking roughly of doing it? Weekday I can make - weekend not so much. That and I am probably still 1-2 weeks away from the oil cooler install.

Man I have a lot of baggage and questions =) [heh].

Hi Dave,
I would think we would plan it on a weekday. It is probably a few months away. I know a few of the guys that are interested won't have their cars back from being built until September. I will give Glenn (the track manager) a call next week and see what type of a deal we can get based on car count and update this thread. It would be great to get out on track with you again. It has been too long since we have been on track together. Talk with you soon.

We won't be timing your laps :) I track quite a bit and always have more fun when I am on track with other GTR's as opposed to Porsche's. Although it is fun beating up on those bright colored GT3RS's :biggrin:

Dave,
We also need to get Steve to come out. He just ran with the ZCCC at HPR and turned a 2:04 if I remember correctly.

Hi guys,
I wanted to update the thread with some pricing info.

Copied from HPR website;

Exclusive Test and Tune
Base rate of $2,500 per day, covers the first four vehicles ($625 per vehicle). Additional
vehicles may participate for $300 per vehicle (for vehicle counts above 12 please call for special
pricing). This is "Exclusive" because the person(s) paying the initial $2,500 have sole discretion
regarding who else may participate. Once the track is reserved for an Exclusive Test and Tune
the renter(s) can choose to have other interested parties contact them to attend, or the renter’s
identity(s) can be kept private. Insurance costs are included in the track rental fee. Ambulance
service is NOT included in the track rental fee, but can be provided for an additional fee if the
renter desires. Testing ONLY - no organized racing allowed.

So the question is; Who is comfortable with the $625 for the day? And if your comfortable what dates would work best for everyone? Figure if we get 10 GTR's the net cost would be $430 a car.

I have not called the track manager yet in regards to additional discount. I would think he would work with us, but I can't imagine the discount will be that large and I didn't want to call and "grind" him until I have some firm commitments.
