All you need is tall leather boots like timbs or docs, gauntlet gloves,a snell rated helmet, and a dream. :fact Most track day orgs will rent you a suit.

DAMN!! I just checked the weather and Sunday is not supposed to rain and it's gonna be 57 down there.. Now if I could only scrounge the $230 fee! I'll be doin a couple weekends in April, but this weekend isn't lookin good for me. I WILL try and sell some parts on here tonight tho, and maybe that will pay for my day, so I'll say maybe!

Are you going for the whole weekend?

Wish I could be there. Didn't sign up because I expected it to be too cold! Thought I might make it on May 23.

New bike, work to do on it, all these NESBA credits...what to do, what to do...

Anyone know how long ago this sold out? How far in advance do you guys suggest signing up for these days? I hate committing far in advance for anything, but if I have to I will. LOL

I know. But damn, what happens if it rains, you gotta run rain tires and suck it up or you gotta buy the event insurance and only lose some $$? Or can you just switch days. I'm on all the sites now, so I'm tryin to figure out the deal. It's a lot of $$ to be puttin out far in advance ya know?

Eh, I've done it for 12 TD's and counting and no rain yet. Personally, if it did rain, I'd buy rain tires from the vendor and ride.

I'd ride the rain too. I imagine it would be expensive for the rain tires tho :(

Rain tires are about what a set of trackday tires will cost you - ~$350. You don't NEED to run rain tires in the wet. I used to run Michelin PP 2CTs on my 1000RR in the rain and they were really good in the wet. Don't fear running in the rain - it'll teach you how to be smooth on the brakes and throttle.

However, COLD and RAIN sucks monkey balls.
