Thumbs up May 3rd (sat)and 4th (sun) '08 grattan trackday thread

this is the "official" may 3rd and 4th grattan trackday thread.

I just signed up for May 3rd. I'll split that room with you if you like DemonRR. I'll probably be heading up there later that night after traffic dies down. I don't want to get there too early because there's not a damn thing to do near the Candlestone at night.

For anyone interested in eventually doing track days, this might be a good opportunity to hang out with some Redline members and see what it's all about, so feel free to come out. I think there's a $5 gate fee that includes lunch, but other than that, you can watch all day if you like for free.

I'm going to sign up today as well. I will also be booking at the Candlestone. I will have room in the trailer for one more bike if anyone else is going.

Just let me know.

What time do things get started at the track?

What time will you 3 get out there to prep?

What's the charge to come down to Dayton and pick up me and the bike lol? I've heard Grattan is a nice track. When I get a trailer, I'll have to make my way up there. Probably won't be till next year though.

I am booked for Saturday. If I am having way too much fun I can always book Sunday the day of. I will also be staying at the Candlestone, if anyone else need to split a room.

Let me know.

just a note for the track newbies looking through this thread...

Its always better to show up to the track with the bike prepped and ready for tech inspection when your roll it off the trailer/truck bed etc(unless you plan on riding the same bike to the track). Its one less thing to worry about when you get to the track in the morning.

If you are unsure whether your bike is ready for tech before you head out contact one of the many track day junkies here and we can lend a hand or look the bike over for you.
