    I am going both days and will be running in the red group with the 360. Yea, I was talking to Redding and he said they repaved!!! Going to give my buddy a call, he was racing there this weekend, see what he has to say about the track. I heard someone hit a deer last weekend!! Thats what really scars me about Summit!

    Hey guys,
    I hate to be a total Noob, but this would be my first track event so I have a few questions -Does anyone know if it's too late to register? Would anyone have or know where I can borrow a helmet for a day? And last, are there any specifications for the mandated fire extinquisher, or will the 3lb multipurpose dry chemical bottles I have laying around do?

    I don't think it's too late to register - give Redding at FOW a call first thing monday morning.

    You can rent a helmet at OG racing in Sterling - stop by when you take your car in for the track inspection.

    And I think your extinguisher ought to be ok - it's the same I use and nobody complained.

    It's probably not too late. Redding is pretty forgiving. The only problem with registering late is you may not get lunch if he already ordered food. You are supposed to have a helmet with an SA Snell rating, different than a motorcycle helmet. You may be able to buy one at the track from OG Racing. Call OG in sterling and make sure they are going to be open that day at the track.

    Also the car needs to go through tech. If it's a ferrari FOW usually does this for free. They want to see: Good brakes, good hoses and belts, fresh brake fluid and good tires. I think there is a check list you can take to your mechanic on the FOW website. Redding can tell you if you can take it somewhere else. I've heard if you have a recept showing a recent brake job and fluid flush within 6 months they will let you slide. Brake fluid picks up moisture, the higher temp brake fluid picks up even more. Good brake fluid should handle at least 400 degrees without boiling. If there is any moisture you will lose brakes at 212 degrees. I can't remember how picky they are about the size of the fire bottle and I have seen them held in with plastic tie wraps. I have also seen them tech cars at the track but you will miss a couple of sessions by the time they finsih with your car. Again check the FOW website or call Redding ASAP. I don't get involved much with the tech issue but I can answer any of the on track questions.

    guys, to all attending, please please PLEASE watch out for deer...especially btw turn 3 and the chute. I was racing there last weekend and it one at 115 mph. Thank god I was ok, but the car got a good 12k in damage and that is never fun. Keep an EXTRA eye out for those guys at the track because they are really moving about and can and will do ALOT of damage to your car if you manage to hit one.



    I still love that track to death though and am going back in Nov.

    Hey Robert, that would have been fun, but we already had a sitter since we are supposed to be working that weekend... We're playing hookie on Saturday, though. Tell Carrie and Elisa the girls say hi! I'm looking forward to a lovely day at the track!

    I ran the NASA event this weekend with my GT40 ! The track is INCREDIBLE!! The grip was amazing and it is super smooth.They did a GREAT job on the paving.I ,personally,didn't see any deer but I heard that a few people did.No hits that I know of.
    Have fun next weekend!

    Hey everyone, I'll be there both days as well! My brother is flying up from Florida for the weekend so he can hang out with us at the track. I'm bringing both the F430 and the 911 Turbo (which will be my "primary" track car for the weekend)!

    See everyone at the track!
