I see that there is a Test & Tune / Open Track Day scheduled for 10am to 4pm tomorrow, Sunday the 10th of September, at Mid-Michigan Motorplex near Stanton, Mi. Anybody here interested in goin'? I haven't got anything new to test, but I damn sure could use the practice! Looks like we may have some pretty good weather, too! (Cool Temps!)

Here's a link to their website: http://www.midmichmotorplex.com/events.html

I'm plannin' to go, what could be better than a Sunday afternoon of fast cars and burnin' rubber?

Sounds like fun...unfortunately, I'm on graveyard shift this week so I will be sleeping. Have a great time, and hopefully you'll miss the rain.

I was just glad I finally ran fast enough to require a helmet. It was a fun day. I think all four of us set new personal best times. I'm still the dog of the bunch though with a 13.51 @107.01. Still fun......

i got a 12.803 whoopee! bettered my old time of 12.874 and got into the 12.8s 3 times.

you need at least a "Snell 95" rating helmet but i'd get a "Snell 2000" so you're set for a while. i got mine a Shamut Hills Yamaha. just don't do what keith did :) and just get a helmet without asking. tell the guy you're looking for a Snell 2000 rated one and they'll hook you up. i think i paid about $70 for mine. it makes me look like i was in the Spaceballs movie but it works for me. Sean road races his so he made sure he could turn his head without hitting the roof. they'll let you "test drive" one

Sorry I missed out, have not done any racing this year at all. I am afraid the clutch will go to pieces with the Mickeys on.

I was out of town this weekend anyway.
