Sorry to bother you guys...

I am writing to tell you of an East Coast Focus meet, that me and ZX3_Chick have been putting some ideas down for. You guys are welcome to respond to that thread. It's in the Northeast Forum. We want to hear your opinions! Everyone from the East coast is invited. just got to plan it, set a date, get an event organizer, and create the schedule.

Looking forward to hearing from you guys![thumb]

Let's plan this soon enough that everyone can make plans for it...

D'Oh! everybody is talking about VIR, huh? well i kinda hoped i wouldn't have to travel that far.

Also you can bring buddies or g/f or b/f when you come.

What do i do regarding hotel arrangements? because i'm new to this kind of stuff.

well im from Philly, and I'll travel say as far as North carolina..lol I love driving, took the old focus to Florida in October.. And as far as hotel arrangements, the hell with it, pull an all nighter. If you guys are serious about this, consider maybe March or after..lol Then at least I wouldnt be showing up with a bone stock car.. but nicer weather would be cool anyway!

Well, I think it should be halfway. Last time I went to a meet, we traveled further then everyone else (3 hours) with everyone else between 30-45 minutes. NC sounds good. I like it down there. It's one of my favorite states.

nc great idea

zx3 chick, nc is a great idea. i could actually drive squirt there as southern roads are hospitable to the car. lot better than 9 mpg towing with the beast. there are a number of groups like tar heel sports car club that run low pressure time trial days at places like lowes motor speedway who we could hook up with. also more hospitable weather than nj usually. and best of all southern hospitality, which many people raved about this past weekend. plus of course waffle houses and krispy kremes.

It's really beautiful down there. Well, I've only been to the coastal regions (Outer Banks and the year before went to Emerald Isle---outside of Morehead City). My boyfriend and I (well me) are planning to go to the mountains down there for our honeymoon in June. North Carolina is nice and I love their accents.

and besides, i don't think i can go that far, how does VIR sound.

And i'll need information on how to get the officials at VIR to open the track for us. This is my first time organizing an event, and if it costs a bunch, let me know...

vir

for a place like vir, you would need to hook up w/someone like nasa or tar heel who provide many track days and provide the logistics, insurance etc. we would be part of one of there timetrial or hpde groups where there are levels for all levels of experience. i have or will have by then instructors credentials with both groups. there are other groups that run days there also. when 04 schedule is posted (after 1/04) i can let you know what dates are available. nasa's vir. regions site is www.nasaracing.net. tar heel is www.thscc.com i believe. and ashley as beautiful as the banks are wait til you see western nc. gods country. you wont believe how different it is from the coast. (i do love the coast. usually run the sportfisher down to hatteras or oregon inlet every other year.)

I've seen photographs of it and seen some things on TV. I think it looks so lovely and peaceful. I love the moutains (that's why I live in them.)

nasa

well it does sound the same, except they fly on the ground. it actually stands for national auto sports association. started on the left coast and has rapidly spread. they are getting ready to overtake the scca in membership. they run the american iron series, the honda challenge and others. their biggest draw though is the hpde series, w hpde 1,2,3 and 4 classes. something for every level driver. i ran with them in june at summit point and between racers and street cars they had 400 registered participants.
