Default speed ventures laguna Seca

well yeah basicly...imma start saving my pennies!
http://www.speedventures.com/1-20-2006_event.asp


Friday event on January 20st, 2006
Base Price: Early-Bird pricing - $330 one day

Instruction:+ $30 per day (required for novices)

Duration: 1 day / 2 - 4 hours of track time per group!**

Track: The full track at Laguna Seca (Monterrey, CA)

Registration: Many spots avail Friday

Timing: There are currently 63 transponders available for rental

Event Info:

Laguna Seca is a legendary 2.238 mile track in Central California, and one of the two most in-demand tracks in the west. Come out with us and you'll get the best track time per dollar value you'll see at Laguna. Test your skills on the world-famous corkscrew and compare your times to those set by the big names of ALMS, NASCAR, CART and the stars of yesteryear. Laguna Seca is a challenging course best suited to intermediate and advanced drivers.



Note: Noise Restrictions at Laguna Seca: We are happy to say that this is a 92db day (rather than the usual 90db day)! Basically a guy sits off to the right of the track and takes noise readings. If you go over the limit, you will be black flagged and told to go into the pits and figure out a way to quiet the car down. People with loud cars (RX-7's in particular) will need to make adjustments for this event. The most effective and easiest adjustment is simply lift off the throttle when you go by the sound station. Another option is to add a turndown to the exhaust, which you can do with a clamp-on. See this thread for more information.

There is no aftermarket rollbar requirement for this event.






*Novices in this case are those who have not driven on a track before.




**Note - Details of this event are subject to change.

Damn... no way I can afford that. Track day cost + hotel + gas to get there and back + gas at the track + food + tires + brakes = f#$%!

Post it on the calendar, though.

Seriously, man. What's really cool is the FIA curbs at Laguna Seca. They're not like the ones we've driven on. Instead of being ^^^^ shaped, they're like ////, like a series of ramps that ramp up away from you. That way, when you run 'em over, you don't risk bending a wheel, and your car stays a bit more stable.

Check it. They're called "Negative Vallelunga" curbs, and they were added as part of a bunch of improvements they made early this year:

so, lets get some commitment from some of the team and I will go. I was considering doing the buttonwillow event in january since that weekend is my b-day, but if we can get something going at laguna I will take a couple days and do that one instead.

Yeah, money's incredibly tight for me right now, otherwise I'd be there just as crew/spectator to support a fellow driver.
