Hi guys,
I started a thread for the drag racing section and figured I might as well start one for the HPDE day as well. Sooo, Who's coming?? Last year I think we had 6 GT-R's participating. Hopefully we can beat that number this year. I have a score to settle with Sharif so I know he is going to be there

Bump


For those of you planning on participating please chime in and send in payment to Peter. So far I think only 4 or 5 have signed up. I know quite a few more are planning on attending but haven't sent in payment yet. The next few months will fly by and I am sure Peter has to commit to the date fairly soon.

I'll be out again this year for sure. Good thing is, I'm moving to Houston in a couple weeks so I wont have to drive cross country again.

Good to hear Jeremy. Will be great seeing you again. Are you going to bring your car to the road course and your shop car to the 1/4? If so chime in on my drag thread.

I'm interested. How did you guys go there normally? It's about 1600 miles away for me :(
Would be Awesome if you can make it!!! I trailer mine. It is about a 1,200 mile trip for me. But we stop overnight at one of the casinos in Oklahoma on the way down. Your quite a bit farther away. If I were you I would probably have the car shipped. That way you can fly in.

Hope to see you there!!!

I really wanna go this year. I will try to make it. It's very hard for me to do this along though...

Bump.

If you are planning on attending the road course day please sign up NOW!!! We are getting close to the deadline and still haven't meant the participation number yet. I believe we need 10 more to secure the half day.

So far it looks like there is only 3 GTR's signed up. Myself, Sharif and Zac. Who else? I know Jeremy is coming and I would think that at least a few of the local GTR owners I have met down there over the last couple years would be participating?

Curious will the "time trials" have classes? Obviously with similarly skilled drivers one of the more race prepped GT-Rs will do better than a stock one... Do we all want to see just modded cars in the TTs?

I missed this thread before, but I see you got me in the list.

This will be my first time ever on a non-virtual circuit. AMS is making me some lower boost maps for me to toggle between on the track though which will be helpful and make it more enjoyable than running full-bore I think.

Looking forward to meeting you and seeing your GTR. I am also going to be running lower boost levels for most of the day. Depending how close I am in lap times to Sharif will determine my boost levels in the afternoon LOL

In the past I believe Peter has awarded the fastest 2 cars trophies at the end of the day. It is probably too late to make a change this close to the event. Peter can correct me if I am wrong.
I didn't realize this and don't care about a trophy but it would be nice for some to get included for their driving skills vs their pocketbook...though I am quite aware setting up a track car is more than a pocketbook. This is a very informal event. anyone with experience at that track will have some advantages as well. I'm doing it just for fun and have never done a TT mostly because I usually don't run with organizations that do...
