  • AROSC Driving School February 16-17 2013

    Please see the driving school listed: here

    The AROSC puts on an excellent school for all levels of driving skills

    Run on the Streets of Willows track so tight and twisty, perfect for a Super Seven.

    If you have not been on the track before this is a great school to start with.

    If interested post a reply so we can see who's coming.

        Just tell the $100MM dollar movie to delay opening for a couple of days so you can get some track time. It really extends the Sevens experience.

          Same here, Paul. I have always wanted to go to one of these, but it just never seems to work out.

            Yeah, they're always sooooo understanding and accommodating about that kind of thing, Doug!

              I've wanted to do attend this school for the past couple years but I'm out of town once again this year.

              I will be attending the University of VARA this weekend. It should be plenty cold but free of rain.

                Is anyone interested in running the NASA February 9/10 event at Chuckwalla? I've been thinking about it. February should be an ideal month to check-out this new facility. Besides I'd like to scrub some rubber off my well-worn Bridgestones.

                  If my car is back together by then and family plans allow, I will try to be there. Especially if there are some other sevens!

                    Hi Justin,

                    I'm not sure what license you have or which group you'd prefer to run with in NASA, but it would be fun if any Sevens enter the same HPDE group. At Thunderhill a few years ago we had six or seven cars from northern and southern California running in HPDE-2 and it was great! That is, it was fun after the first couple of sessions Saturday morning when NASA was strongly prompted to get some stuff straightened out.

                      Doug and Clark,

                      It looks now like family will be visiting over both the NASA and AROSC weekends in February. I have been without a track car for nearly three months now with the Caterham getting a new transmission and the Porsche an engine rebuild. Wish I could come to one of these.

                      I've been to a few of the NASA events, but don't have a time trial license with them. I am just now working my way through the POC licensing system, so maybe I will get some reciprocity with NASA. Over the last twelve years I've had over 100 track days, but the only licenses I've acquired are the AROSC license and POC Time Trial license. I keep thinking it would be fun to go to the SCCA school just because it's such a good deal, even if I don't do any of their class racing.

                      I've really enjoyed the days we have been able to get out together, so let's keep trying to get some sevens out at the same time!

                        Don't you know you could become blind and impotent! I already have to wear glasses...

                        Hopefully we can do the AROSC TT and Enduro weekend at Buttonwillow later this year. Murphy also said something about a NASA event at Laguna with a higher dB level. 105 I think.

                          Hi,

                          Unfortunately the NASA event at Laguna Seca is TT and Race only. It's a crossover event for Northern and Southern California and they obviously want to limit attendance.

                          Justin, I thought your driving was pretty exceptional for a newby. Your disclosure of so many track days explains a lot!

                          I've put my 2 cents in with the AROSC about their combo events with the NCRC. Basically, I liked it much better when the AROSC ran their own events where the time trial groups had one set of track/passing rules, and the race group was, well, it was the race group.

                          At last year's Buttonwillow event, I was forced to enter the TT open passing with my own car (I know, should have entered earlier) and was pretty appalled by the outright and unnecessary aggressiveness of many of the drivers. Also their event timing was all over the place (that is, when it was working) and I'm not sure if anybody ever got their correct lap times. The greatest part of the weekend though was the opportunity to share Michael Murphey's car in the enduro. What a sweet ride!!

                            I think I have had more driver instruction and track days than anyone I know that doesn't run in any actual racing series! It's not that I'm not a little bit competitive, but it's much easier and quite a bit of fun for me to just do lots of HPDE's. Some day, though...

                              Plans for NASA at Chuckwalla on February 9 & 10. I'm going to drive out to Chuckwalla Valley Raceway Saturday morning. It's only a two hour drive from Riverside and I've done similar early morning commutes a number of times for triathlons at Lake Cahuilla. After Saturday in HPDE-3 at the track, I'll stay Saturday night at the Super 8 in Indio. I'm not sure about dinner, but NASA usually puts on a pretty good spread - but we'll see. If nothing else, I should be able to get a Date Shake in Indio. Sunday, more track time and return home before too late in the afternoon.

                              Chuckwalla looks like an ideal track for Sevens. That is, lots of turns. Several guys from the AROSC have driven it and came back with great reviews. I'm looking forward to this opportunity to drive a new track and get back with some of the NASA guys. Also, Ryan Flaherty gave me the okay to tech inspect Sevens for HPDE. The one thing missing for this coming weekend is the group of Sevens we used to get for track events. Is there anyone else who wants to give this a try?
