Big Bend Open Road Race 4/21/10-4/24/10
 
Well, I tried this last year with little to no response, so I'm gonna try again. I would like to drive this one year, but I thought it would be more fun if 10+ of Us did it... Really, how often does one get the chance to LEGALLY drive at whatever speed You want on a public highway? Anyway, if not this year, maybe We can put together a little something for 2011?

I read about that race in Sport Compact Car about 8 or 9 years ago. I wish we had something like that here.

^^It's really a lot of fun. Open Road races are the best, IMO. Well, those and Rally, of course[thumb]

That's what I'm saying! I worked as a course official in 05 and have been looking to find a way back ever since. Registration fills up FAST, so it may already be too late for this year, but it can't hurt to go over the safety requirements(eg, certain classes require 3 point harnesses minimum) and such, and make sure everyone who wants to race is in compliance before We go...

Or We can just go and chew up and spit out the local ricers[wiggle]

i should have the pwsc on by then.

jmiller_1974 02-10-2010 12:24 PM

That would be cool, when We qualify We'll end up in different classes. Not many similar makes end up in different classes. Neat!

I wish I had enough faith in my focus to run it...

So this is a 3-day race?

No, the race itself is only one day, but because it is effectively time trials, it makes for a LONG day.
