Actual track days not auto-x's
 
Does anyone know when where or how we could rent out a track and race all day?!? I know my friend Randy called up a track, I forgot which one, but it's 12g to rent it out for a day. So you figure if we get 50 ppl we'd be about 300 a piece which would be like a reg open track day but it would be just to ourselves. Or is there any time in particular where they just have open days where you can race?!? Cause I wanna get out on a track and go at it sometime this summer :D lemme know!

Its going to be on Thursday, April 26th. If you could make the drive over it would be well worth it, the track is a fairly mild road course but its still a lot of fun. Its $100/person, you'll also need a Snell-rated helmet (the track has some on hand if you want to rent one.) There's going to be some Mazda people there (so far only four have committed, but its four months until April so more could sign up by then) and its being partially sponsored by a Mazda dealer that is (supposively) going to bring some of their performance models (MS3/6, MX-5, RX-8) along for people to try out.

that looks sick!! Damnet to hell that it's on a thursday!! I have school on thurs. I'm gonna see when school starts if I can ditch it. If not I'll try and start one there myself with my friend Randy cause he for sure wants to do it. I would LOVE to meet you SKA. You have helped me out a lot and don't think I havn't forgot :D Oh and the update on the broken hood lock...yah it was broken. It took me 8 hours to finally cut off the plastic piece that holds it in place and yank it out...if you want I can pm you the whole ordeal. I might start a thread on it cause now Sasha won't e-mail me back after he told me to try and take the lock apart. I don't know what he means by his explination so I told him to give it to me with a pic or just differently so I can understand and he hasn't e-mail me back in 5 days. The summary. one bent euro grille, and a cracked cf hood. and all of that plastic being cut off my car...boooo...and thank god the socketing wrench fit in there. took me about 10 min to get both screws out as oppose to the 4 hours it took with a reg wrench.
