The Firm Track Rental - Anyone Interested?

Recommended Posts

We're looking to rent the track at The Firm located in Starke, FL if anyone is interested.  We'd like to get 6 cars to help split the cost.  Our team would provide a corner worker and flagman with radios.

 

We can work out a date if we have any interest.  We were thinking between now and August.

 

The prices are:

Whole day (Weekday) rental - $2,800.00

Whole day (Saturday or Sunday) rental - $3,300.00

We can only rent Sunday if Saturday is booked.

 

If your interested shoot me an email at aufishboy@hotmail.com.

 

Thanks,

Daniel

We've been there before and it was good for a car shake-down. I guess it would be nice to have the track to yourselves and a few other Chump teams, but for the cost why not just hit one of their open track events? I think they do them 2 weekends a month and it would be about 1/2 price (VS splitting 3300/6 teams? If it is just for car shake-down, I wouldn't imagine you'd have more than 2 drivers for a car anyways.

 

If it's for actual driver shake-down/seat-time maybe a track day with Chin or some other group at Sebring would be more optimal? Your drivers would be getting laps at an actual facility that Chump races at?

Guys thanks for the replies. 

 

We we're looking at the open track days as well but have heard it gets really busy.  We were concerned about not getting much time on the track. 

 

We're doing both...shaking down the car and trying to get drivers behind the wheel.

 

Sebring is tough because we're in Tallahassee so that's a 6 hour drive for us.  That's why we're looking at the Firm it's only 2.5 hrs away.

Never had a problem with crowding. 

I would love to go watch and pick brains and stare at cars.

 

let me know when you are scheduled. 

Ok, will do

 

I got a wild hair based on pintodave's post and contacted Sebring about a track day.  Cost is $13,400 plus tax of course...

 That somehow doesn't actually sound that bad, comparatively, I wonder what Daytona costs? $50k?

+1 for just going to a HPDE/PDX event for a shakedown/practice, registering in two different run groups should get the car plenty of track time and a little closer to the abuse of an endurance race.  I think the 25-30 min sessions are planned for driver and vehicle fatigue.

Lol I was talking about doing it with another group, not just a private test session. Although I agree, 13k for a facility like Sebring is less than I would have figured, but you might need more than 6 cars to make it work... :lol:

 

We are doing the Chin day in two weekends (not sure which day yet...) - provided the car is back together. There are a few other groups that run pretty regular there too. Chin is 325 plus 95 for add'l drivers.

 

With that being said, if it was the first time out with the car I'd opt for the FIRM as it cost less (for the regular weekend open-track HPDE)  and serves it's purpose for a testing grounds to make sure parts don't fall off and/or driver shakedown (and geographically easier for you to get there). We were actually going to do that with the Camaro but the day we were going to go it ended up raining plus we were thrashing to finish it for Daytona anyways... probably would have discovered our inadequate cooling situation if we would have made it out there to test!
