  • Willow Springs, Anybody?

    There will be another NASA track day at Willow Springs (the big, fast track) July 10/11. Cost is $225 for both days HPDE. There is also an enduro race at night and I heard some Seveners are coming from NorCal.
    See Here

    Quite likely that I will go. Anybody else?


    P.S.: Last year at this time it was a nice and cosy 106 degrees 8) I went through 3 gallons of water but had a lot of fun.

    I will probably attend.

      Oh, darn it! Just found out that my sister is visiting that weekend from Germany. I think it would not be good style to just take off for 2 track days :(

      Well, there will be other opportunities in Fall.....

      Whoever goes, have fun out there. I will probably be at Universal Studios or Disneyland or something :?

        Bring your sister. If she lives in Germany she will appreciate the arid heat of the Mojave Desert in summer. A once in a lifetime experience.

          Forwarded: some more information

          I got the following info from NASA (but I am not going),


          NEXT EVENT IS JULY 10-11!!

          I wanted to send this as a reminder to get everyone prepared for the
          next NASA event which is only a few weeks away. We don't have an event
          in Aug so I hope everyone gets ready to make this event. We are also
          hosting a Night Enduro as part of the WERC Championship
 so take
          advantage of what is usually perfect night racing weather!

          Season Points have been updated so take a look to see where you stand.
          We have Racing, Enduro, and Time Trial Results posted here:

          I looked up on Mapquest and the Best Western in Mojave is 13 miles from
          the Rosamond exit so it is not far. I have also stayed there when
          traveling for OTC and it is perfectly fine.

            Disneyland? Universal Studios? Hell, if you're going to take here anywhere go to Magic Mountain. They have the only roller coasters in SoCal that will at least get your sister close to the 7 experience. Besides, it's on the way (well, almost) to Willow hint hint.

              Yes, might be a good idea. I have not been to MM for a few years. But then, my sister is a little on the heavy side. Surely would not fit in the Seven, anyway. Neither enjoy roller coasters.

              The mention of Disneyland and Universal was kind of symbolic. We are probably rather doing some city sightseeing, beach, montains, good food and yes, maybe stop by at Willow Springs for an hour to watch. But that is fine. I don't see her that often.
