gabe you should go to the milwaukee track day thay are having instructors and you get to watch the racing all day too im going to try to go but im taking the mini i will make up my mind next week see if i can aford it might just go one day. the south bend event is sunday night and its a long drive/tow back when you got to work sunday night.

you just need to call Home City tomorrow and say some punk in south Chicago nearly killed you driving an ice truck.

In all seriousness, going up to Milwaukee would be my choice - sweet experience, such a classic place. Can you imagine going off the back straight down into oval turn 2? scary as hell I bet. altough if I just asked if I could work until say 2 o'clock for the Gingerman day, maybe they'd give me the afternoon and then I could make it there by 5.

did i mention there's gonna be a stadium truck off road race in joliet next month?? its a wed/thurs show, so I should easily be able to see that one... darn, getting off topic again.

Where can I get info about this event? Can't find anything on their website concerning times, etc. Also, is anyone else having trouble with this forum? Half the time IE tells me they can't connect and if it can, I can't do anything once it does connect. It's the same on my work computer so I don't think it's my computers problem.

If you're looking for the Gingerman event, info can be found here

on page 5


Regarding your problem, maybe it's just a IE problem. I'm not having any problems viewing this forum with firefox..

So, how may of us are going?

It looks like Jeff, Lee, Stu, me, and possibly Gabe, and Chuck.

Anyone else?

Alex is going, Stu can't drive because he broke his elbow, Mark Seaman will be there too. He may bring his Civic!

So you're saying there's an online video player OTHER than youtube!?

Would you have a link then? or do you have to be on facebook to watch?

Agreed, I had a blast!

Here's one of my sessions. (I'll try to get some more up later in the week)

Things I've noticed.

In my case, my street tires are about 1 sec. faster per lap than my r-comps.

I was about 2 sec. slower with a person riding shotgun.

I haven't improved much at all since the last time I've been on the full track. (maybe a tenth or two)

I'm glad the folks from INR had fun. We try to do a variety of things at a reduced cost for our members as an incentive to join SBR, SCCA. In addition to the open track night, we went karting last week, and we'll have a Rally on October 2nd that will basically include a free dinner as long as a SBR member is in the car participating. More details to follow.

Now that you're members, you'll be getting our newsletter where all of our activities will be announced.

Thanks again for coming.

Jeff Luckritz

Regional Executive

SBR, SCCA

I'll come rally, free dinner or not!

As long as it's in the evening and not during our last points event...
