Ok, stop waiting, procrastinating, avoiding, or otherwise not taking care of business and GET SIGNED UP FOR GINGERMAN!  It's a bargin, its going to be great fun, and you don't want to miss it.

In your Ecotec Miata, how's the gearing for this track?  All 3-4?

Ill be there, probably getting my butt kicked by Will's new UBER E30. 

We will have a great race for 2nd place with the rest of the field :D.

 

After the weekend at Autobahn, all we need on Allis is new tires and a new muffler to be ready for Gingerman.

Can we add a megaphone? If we can't fight GWR with speed, can we use sound as our ally?

How is the track surface?  If I recall correctly in 2014 it was quite punishing on tires. 

Its really nice IMHO, I beleive the repave happened spring of 2015??  We have run there the last two years with rs3's and been able to do both days on the same set of tires with plenty left at the end.

Either that, or every bearing etc. is within 5 minutes of the end of its life and will blow up at Gingerman.   (Kinda like the fuel pump in Spartan last weekend)

The track surface is very good, tires last a very long time. I think you are right about the 2015 re-pave.

Oh gawd man.... you guys should all be knocking on wood right now.  With statements like that you might as well be outside waxing your race car right now.

I'll be there. Will the Starion be there? ...Maybe.  We are hoping to use the Gingerman race as a glorified test day.  How expensive is oil dry at Gingerman?

 

At the price of Gingerman, you might as well use it as a test weekend. This race is  a deal it's a steal it's the sale of the century.

And the race track (separate fee, not through ChumpCar) is holding a test-n-tune day on Friday for just $200. So for just $800 you can have your car out on track for three straight days!!

I am hoping I can make this event driving for another team.  It is the weekend before my wedding.  I was told to go race, but we are also hosting the rehearsal dinner at our house so I may be on the honey to do list as well. 

I don't know how to set up a poll, but we should help Tyler out.

 

If you think he is being "tested" and his wife-to-be is going to be PISSED if he actually goes racing, click "like" on this post.

 

ONLY GUYS WITH MARITAL EXPERIENCE SHOULD VOTE (you can vote if you are currently divorced.  If you have had 3 or more wives, maybe sit this one out)

Don't click on this one just because you want to f**k with Tyler - this could be an expensive mistake (don't ask me how I know - I am trying to forget about it).

Anyone have any open seats for this race?  After Autobahn we are thinking we need to look for a different situation until we can find a car to purchase.

 

To that point, anyone know of any chumpcars for sale?

 

there are a few if you look in the right section of the forum - this will get you started:

Y'all talk about finishing in 2nd, you realize we haven't won a race since 2015, right?  Just have a giant stack of 2nd and 3rd place trophies.....

Besides the Death Star might not be fully operational on its racing debut.  lol
