It can be rented and it's pretty cheap too. A group of us have gone up there four times so far this year. There's a track day going on up there tomorrow as a matter of fact but I can't go this time. Last year we got the track to ourselves several times so there were only about 6-8 of us. It's gotten a little more popular now so you usually end up sharing with another small group but it's never crowded. Cost is $75 per person and I think there's a $300 minimum. It's not much for landscaping but the surface is good. A meet up there would be fun. It's really laid back, there's usually a brief riders meeting to tell people not to be stupid and you pretty much pull on and off the track whenever you want (but not wherever you want!).
PS - We've been there several times with a group from Kelowna (sp?). And a minor technicality, it's Spokane Raceway Park. Here's an overhiead photo of the track.
Every day we've done so far has been on a Sunday. But I believe there are no more Sunday's this year. There are a handfull of Saturdays and our group is going up on Monday the 24th. I think there's a small group up there this Saturday from Portland.
Is at least twice a month during the summer regular enough for you? We're going up Monday Oct. 8 if the weather holds. Man if I could have gone to every opportunity I could have done about 12 track days this summer. Even at $75 a day that gets expensive.
I live in Olympia...so it's about a 6 hour drive...one way. Probably not going to happen. I lived in Spokane about 5 years ago. Worked as a design engineer out at KeyTronic. What a fooked up company that is/was!!
Oh man, I wish we'd bumped into each other sooner. There's a group of guys that comes out from the Seattle area to a lot of the track days. You probably could have hooked up with them to share travel and lodging expenses. There's a couple motels within a mile of the track and we usually go up the night before and stay there. Keep it in mind for next year.
