3rd Annual RMCB5 GTG Track Day
« on: February 07, 2005, 04:11:57 PM »
Rocky Mountain Club B5 is having its 3rd Annual GTG from Friday, May 27th to Sunday, May 29th.  Part of this GTG will include the renting Second Creek Raceway on Saturday the 28th (8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.)  Unlike previous years, this year we will have limited participation.  We will limit the number of drivers at the track to 35.  This will ensure the track is never crowded and people get as much driving in as they can stand.   :)   It will cost $75 for unlimited driving.  This fee will also pay for lunch and drinks throughout the day.

If anyone would like to attend but will not drive, the cost is $5.  This is just to cover the food and drinks.  Additionally, please keep in mind everyone that enters the grounds must sign the waiver before proceeding past the house at the gate and getting to the paddock area.  This applies to everyone, even if you’re not driving.  It costs nothing to go for rides around the track with other drivers.

Like last year, we plan on having instructors available for anyone looking for help.  Rick Snyder of www.snymo.com and Mark Bradley, both former Quattro Club driving instructors, will be there to help.  They both have extensive experience and know this particular track very well.  They will be a great asset to all of us.

The event is open to all friends and family of RMCB5. If you know of any others that would like to go, feel free to invite them.

I will be handling the financials. I'm asking for people to submit a $75 check made payable to me.
If you'd like to go, please post here and I will send you an e-mail with payment information. If you have any questions, please post them here so others can see the response, too.

Track Prep:
You may want to consider bringing sunscreen, stopwatches, digicams, and videocams.

Some other things you'll want to check on your car are oil, brakes and tire pressure. Be sure to come with a full tank of gas, too!

Anyone that goes on the track is required to wear a helmet. If you don't have one, see if you can find one to borrow before track day. The last thing we want is a lack of helmets that will limit everyone's time on the track. If you can’t come up with one don't worry. There might be a couple extras there to borrow.

Additionally, Autoworks Colorado has graciously volunteered to sponsor our track day.  They are a garage near Kipling and C-470 that specializes in German cars.  I've had exceptional experiences there over the last year, as have other club members that have gone there.  Mark, the owner, has offered some great prizes for track day attendees.  We will have a raffle for the prizes at the drivers meeting before ever getting on the track, so be sure you get there early!  You have to be there to be eligible for the drawing.  The prizes are:
1.  Two sets of Eibach Pro-Kit springs for an Audi S4 (B5 platform)  These normally sell for about $300 per set and drop the car 1" to 1.5".
2.  Four $100 gift certificates good for labor and/or parts of your choice
Yep, that's $1,000 worth of prizes.  Let's hear it for Autoworks Colorado!

First of all good to meet you yesterday.  :)  
What is taking place on the other days?  You said 27-29?  I believe that I would be up for the track day.  I will be ready and my GO will be ready!

On the following Sunday we will likely have a drive and/or BBQ.  More details on that will follow in the next few weeks in a different thread.  This thread is strictly for the track day.

Well, it looks like I'm out. My sister's coming out and will only be here for two days so I'll ride on Saturday and hopefully Sunday...
I'll try to stop by with the ladies and take a few laps with whoever :wink:

Of course, just get a check to Denver Pat per the instructions at the top of the thread and you will be added.  It is first come first server and we are limiting space so the track doesn't get crowded.

That's what we had the last couple years and there were several times throughout the day when the track was totally empty.  I'd guess there to be an average of five cars out there at a time.

it is now looking like I will be out for this.   I think this will be the weekend that my dad is choosing to get re-married.  I'll know for sure this week on the date for the wedding.  

If I can make it, you'll get a check this week, but I have a feeling that I will not be able to go.
