    Since we had so much fun at SoW, I thought I'd post on this upcoming event at WSIR. I just talked to Joel at Extreme Speed, and he had this to say:

    • Event is on March 8th, 2014 (it's the track above SoW in the base of the hills)
    • Discounted to $75 for the day (coupon vouchers are okay for this event too)
    • includes lunch for the driver
    • includes use of a timing transponder (just like SoW)

    Track overview:

    Link to registration:

    *I don't think coupon users will show up as registered users, so a few of us won't be on the tally that's listed online in real-time.

    At 1 mile around, this is a very tight track and much smaller than even SoW. Joel says he thinks of this as more of a canyon run. It typically favors lighter, low HP cars (but all cars are welcome).

    Who's in? My calendar is free right now and I'm planning to go!

    On my calendar.
    This will be great.
    Canyon driving without the bicycles and cops.
    All the fun at less cost than a speeding ticket.

    Okay, that's two of us! ;)

    I've never run this track -- and always figured it was more popular with carts and the super-moto crowd! I think we'll have fun here too!

    That would be great! I think we're going to have a couple FoSTs @ Big Willow, and maybe even here, too.

    Even if you can't run, it would be great to hang out. These are turning into "club events", so the more, the merrier!

    Three now, right? You, Wash, and me.

    This is a first time run for all of us there -- this track doesn't see nearly as much club action as the bigger tracks. Let's make this a club meet! Who else is in?! :)

    We should check with late apex.
    He needs to put more ware on those tires he bought.

    I registered last weekend so I'll be there (fingers crossed).

    Hopefully I'm going to have a not so secret weapon to give me an edge.

    I like secrets.

    Ha, I was just wondering the same thing. Maybe he did the brakes he's been talking about? New tires? ;)

    Or a Tune perhaps ...

    Anyone else.

    This is a great track, just like canyon driving.
    Plenty of quick turns and elevation changes.
    Only without the Cops and bicycles.

    So... how bad is Horsethief after this weekend's downpours?

    I doubt we will have any more rain so the track will be clean and dry.
    The track crews take good care of it.

    I agree, the track should be great! More rain looks doubtful at this point -- it might be months before we get such significant rainfall again!

    It's true, Dave -- but not too late! :)

    These are always a great time, and this is the least threatening track to try for your first time (in terms of speed and size).

    So wash,
    Did you build a new intercooler pipe?
    You know, it's like chewing gum on line, I hope you bring enough for everyone. ;)
