Jan. 7th and 9th: Georgetown Ice Races
« on: October 01, 2004, 12:45:39 AM »

^ (finally found a good audi-in-ice pic)

If anyone without AWD wants to go, no problem... find someone that will let you drive their car, or you can just go and ride. I think each car is allowed to race with 2 female drivers and 2 male, so although each person can only be in it once, the car could go 4 times.

Here is the site, go check it out, read the rules, and mark your calendar!

If you're looking at it thinking its all about the Jeeps and 4x4s... check this out. We need to show some VW representation out there!

There is a practice day on Friday, Jan. 7th and the actual racing is the 9th (and several Sundays after that as well).

Read the FAQ.
There is a 20% group discount if 8 or more people register the same day.

looks like they only do weekends for the bare rubber street tire class...so I guess I can't go, unless I plan a weekend off for this way in advance.  any thoughts on when everyone might like to do this, sometime after new years as my schedule is already locked until Jan 1st.

Yeah the bare rubber races are on Sundays, first one being Jan 9th. There is a practice day Friday the 5th which I'm thinking about taking a day off work to go to. I think I would have more fun practicing than racing... :)

I found out from their site that by having snows it puts you in the pro-street class, which means tougher competition (people that do this stuff all the time and know what they are doing as opposed to say, me...), and helmet requirement.

But the 9th is just the first one, if there is another weekend later that works for more people we should plan for that.

I can't do the 9th, but if you pick a later one, I will request the time off....

I will leave the date up to you.

Possible Sundays in January are: 16th and 30th, then in February: 6th and 20th.

I'm thinking January 16th, that is probably a good weekend for Evan to go to the grandparents while I play on the ice. I'll still plan on the 7th for the practice day if anyone wants to join.

When the date gets closer I'll put up an evite and just post the link here so anyone can join in and we can pretty easily keep a tally of who is going.

Do you think they will let my 4400lb car on the ice, hehe.

That is light compared to the Motor homes and trailers that will be up there sitting on the ice!



I have raced my Jeep up there for about 8 years.

Not exactly a pro, I lose a lot. But I also like to play a lot!

I may have to try the Audi out up there this year. I am sure it is better on the Ice than the Jeep.

Last year the Jeep had full time lockers in it and would not steer at all. This year it is set up with selectables so we may have to try it again.

Here is a picture of me racing up there in my old YJ. Picture is about 4-5 years old. (different Jeep now)

I am sure I have met some of them on the trails. But have not specifically hung out with them.

*BUMP* again.... :D

If anyone is planning to go, let me know which weekend works best - I'm thinking either the first one (2005-01-09) or the second (2005-01-16), both are Sundays. If either of those is better than the other let me know so I can plan ahead a little better.

Also, I'm planning on going to the practice day which is the 7th. Its a friday and will just be a time to go and 'play' on the ice all day without the structure of racing (i'm looking more forward to this than the actual racing). Let me know if anybody wants to go.

REMEMBER: you don't have to have to take your car, you can ride with someone, and if they are willing you can even race their car - 2 guys and 2 girls can race the same car.

The time has come!

I'll be in NC all next week, and will return on the 1st - the following Friday is practice day! We went up last weekend and the lake is well frozen and veeeeerrrrry slick, with only a few patches of snow to hang on to.

If anyone plans to go, post here and we'll work out getting together to drive up. And if you want to ride along I've got space for 3 in my car.

I'm planning on going Friday for the practice day. I'll be coming down from Loveland, so I doubt I'll be able join anyone for the drive to Georgetown, but hopefully I'll see some of you there.
