  • Who's coming/going to the HGP?

    It's only a week away! Regional members and guests, please post what days you plan to go and where you plan to be. I plan to be around for parts of Friday and most of the weekend. You will see me in either my Lone Star S2KCA or S2KDays2006 shirt, unless we have weather like last weekend. (30's on saturday!)

    See you at the races!

        I'm going. I got a super ticket so I plan to be there all three days but might not be able to take it if it's hot. I haven't been to one of these before so if you guys want to point out some things I wouldn't want to miss, that would be great. My S2K wardrobe is pretty limited but I do have a Lonestar hat I'll try to remember to wear.

            I thought you were brining the Cayman to TWS ;-)

                Key Times in the schedule of events:

                Friday
                845-930 Atlantic Series Practice
                1005-1120 Champ Car Practice
                1135-1235 ALMS Practice
                1255-1330 Atlantic Series Q
                1410-1510 Champ Car Q1
                ALMS qualifying is in the evening, but I did not write down since I need to head back around 3pm.

                Saturday
                1330-1430 Champ Car Q2
                1520-1605 Star Mazda Race
                1730-2015 ALMS Race
                2045-2130 MX-5 Race

                Sunday
                1130-1230 Atlantic Race
                1400 Champ Car Race

                I think the Champ car will go 90 minutes to 2 hours.

                  Unfortunately, too much got in the way....

                  I'm selling my toybox trailer to an out of town buyer, and she may not be able to make it here until Sat. Also, got an invite to a party in Houston Sat. night, w/ a bunch of friends that I rarely get to see these days.

                  I know...I'm really looking forward to getting my car on the track, but navigating around motorcycle races and other BS these days is damn near impossible!

                        Radios?

                        I was wondering if we could bring in our FRS radios and if so, what channel/s should we try?
                        It might be a good way to find each other.
                        Since it's late, I'm going to try to bring mine anyway. They are currently set on 1-15 from a drive I did a while back so maybe that's a typical channel for us?
                        Hope to see some of you and thanks for the schedule pointers.

                          Btw, Paul Rogers (formerly of Bad Co.) is playing Friday night, and Jerry Jeff Walker on Saturday.

                                  I'm going to be a bit later today than I thought. Inlaws coming in and I apparently have a few things that need doing. Hope to see you folks out there later.

                                    I saw tmarshall on friday and met SilverS2000 on Saturday working one of the corners. I walked well over 6 miles every day. More on the races later.
