Heard from Ace -the organizer, he only has 4 spots left as of 1-14-14.

Sounds like there's a bunch of Reno guys going. Should be a blast.

Stuff:

Gary and I are staring at the Days Inn (info is on the ThunderHill web site)

Planning on dinner at the Casa Ramos (walking distance from the hotels)
247 N. Humboldt Ave,
Good Mexican food.

Breakfast, I suggest Nancy's, good old fashion.
Drive over the bridge (over I5) towards the track, it's right past the bridge on the left at the airport.

If the weather's good, we'll be pitting up against the fence on the front straight, on your right as you come down the pits.

New guys, don't forget to stop right inside the gate to sign the track release.

Looks like I am going to try and bring a slow miata as well...
Ok, got signed up, if anyone needs help learning T-hill I may help as well.

Given that I've never been to T-hill, some pointers around the track might be extremely helpful.

I plan to go over a track map first thing in the morning for those who want it.

Might help in a couple corners but not real effective until you get some laps in.

The best thing to do is go to post 7 and watch the video in the link the day before you leave for the track.
Watch it more than once.

Is anybody trailering their car down to T-Hill and would have space for a set of 15" wheels and tires?

We don't have a suitable tow vehicle at the moment and unless the weather suddenly warms up and dries up I doubt I'll be able to drive the Miata down there on its track tires, so we'd need an alternative way to get the wheels and tires down there and back home.

I would've liked to see you blow the socks off all the participants. Especially Dante's M3.

Maybe Jerry or someone can give you a ride around so don't forget your helmet.
And, you have to sign in with Ace to be a passenger.

If I actually make it to the track we can have a competition as to who ends up having to give the most point bys .

And to just about nobody's surprise, my Miata is playing up again so I won't be able to go. Not 'appy.

Yup, I'm out too. As I wrote Bill earlier, I've been sick as a dog the last couple days, haven't been able to keep anything down or in...very weak. Def not fit to flog around a 500HP race car. Sucks

Looks like it will be raining there on Wed so be careful for you guys going.

Ace said if he can fill it I'll get a refund, but I imagine I'll probably end up eating it. Ironic, since I haven't been able to eat

Greg (Ryan's Uncle) was signed up to go, haven't spoke to him in a while though.

Gary and I are pulling outa here at 1:00.

NOAA says rain after 10:00 , maybe we can get one dry session.

I'd advise you guys to get to the track early on Wed. There are 2 large, covered pit spaces but I imagine they'll fill up quickly.
