  • Infineon June 30th/July 1st

    Registration for this event is now open. It has been designated as a Norcal/Socal "crossover" event by NASA (FWIW) and the timing is right to make it a Norcal/Socal crossover for sevens as well.

    Let's get out the vote! Can we have a show of hands and, for those who want to attend, please register now to avoid disappointment.

    Infineon is a fantastic circuit and is close to San Francisco, so it is a very popular event. HPDE usually sells out at least a month in advance.

    Before I bite into this, a question: Do you know from prior experience where the passing zones would be in HPDE3? Even if I'm a 4 by then I'm likely to step back due to unfamiliarity w/ the track and the attendant proximity of its walls...

      Sorry, very tasty track but don't count me in....got to take Grandma to New Mexico.

      Now, does that sound like a fun alternative to a track day??

      P.S.: Forgot to say, I also have to bring her back.

        Chris, not sure but I think the passing zones are on the front straight, the short straight after the carousel and the back straight after the infamous turn 11.

        You should go into group 4 if you can. There's virtually no difference in speed. You can go slow until you learn the track.

          Gert,

          Bring Grannie to the track and take her as a passenger. It will definitely be more memorable for her than New Boring Mexico.

            Michael,

            Will you be an HPDE instructor?

            Edit: I am very tempted...

              Well, I was planning to race but if folks are interested in some sevenesque instruction, I am willing to instruct instead. There is a deadline of 30 days prior for instructors to sign up. If there is interest, let me know.

              Pierre has indicated that he will be there, and I think he plans to instruct rather than race.

                Yes, it does seem to be sold out - like I said, it's popular! So sign up for Group 2!

                  I believe I just read it wrong, no need to have a drop down box if it is only for one group.

                  Will they allow me to park my trailer anyplace or do I have to pay the camping fee?

                    You are right. There is a separate box for HPDE 3.

                      I'm tempted on this one.

                        I'm in.

                        I've signed into HPDE 3 as the passing rules posted by NASA (registration is only available for Sat., or Sat. & Sun., but *not* Sun. only) will be gradually loosened over the course (pun intended) of the weekend for full-on passing anywhere all day Sunday and most of Saturday, thus eliminating my recent frustrations w/ the SoCal program.

                        So, other SoCal HPDE 3ers, no reason not to go.

                        I'm in MM. Place to stay?

                          Drifting OT for a moment...

                          Now hold on a minute here pal. I'm from New Boring Mexico. I grew up in a beautiful natural environment skiing, hiking, speeding around on motorcycles and in various and sundry Loti. Not to mention the substances that were available. Yes, in my youth our lives were literally, ahem, loaded w/ things to do :D

                          And when worse came to the worst, there was always a big steaming bowl of Green Chili Stew waiting, just to blow out the bad. C'mon ice cream:D

                          Now, if Gert was taking Grammy to, oh, say, Texas, well then I'd have to agree w/ you. You see, growing up, we had a slogan: The wind blows in New Mexico because TEXAS SUCKS.

                          Back OT...

                          Anybody else going besides me?
