What's good any other Nor Cal heads trying to do a track day? I'm signing up for Nasa HPDE-1 on Sunday, March 16.

National Auto Sport Association - nasaproracing.com

I'm not doing anything fancy to the car, it's essentially a stock civic with some Hawk HP+ pads and new rotors and DOT 4 brake fluid.

I'd love to participate, but I've blown more money than I actually have on doing stuff to my car the last couple months lol...If I can muster gas money, I may roll out and spectate, we'll see

There will be a lot of cool cars out there. I like watching the Porsches. When I went last time, I saw a prototype class car running. That thing was stupid fast!

Yeah, I've been there for sanctioned races like American Iron (my friends brother used to run the series) and they would have hpde between and after races, very fun to watch, I remember watching this one time, a guy in an S2000 took a few laps to do it, but eventually ran down a Porsche GT3. Was sitting in the bleachers near the start finish taking a break from walking around, there goes this Porsche..........then the S2000, a couple minutes later, Porsche.......then the S2000....told my friend to watch what was happening, he said I was full of crap...Porsche...S2000...Porsche, S2000....S2000 Porsche.......S2000.......Porsche, so on. This was long before I ever owned a Honda, I was aware the S2K was a decent sports car, it did surprise me to see it take down a 6 digit super car on a race track though

I really enjoy days spent at the track, even if I don't get to participate, it's just fun to be there and take in the scene whether watching the action on the track or walking around the paddock and pit areas checking out race cars up close, there aren't many things I like more

Let's do the caravan thing, I'm sure I can come up with gas money if this is a "this is definitely happening" sort of thing

I'm down for the caravan thing. I think tech inspection is around 8 so we gotta be there early to make it in time. I'm coming from South City near SFO. So Sonoma is like a 45min. to 1 hour drive from me. I think Sammo is in San Jose so that's even further.

Spoke with Ronnel, he's down to roll but doesn't feel his car is up to task for participation, told him it's a run what you brung type thing, not sure he'll do it though. Pretty sure he is down to spectate. I know my car would pass scrutineering with flying colors, wish I had more money to participate, been dying to try my car out on a race track...I'll get there some day.

Anyways, I'll plan to meet up with him, maybe crash his couch the night before so I don't have to leave at 4:30am to get to the south bay by 6, we'll meet up with Sammo, and anybody else that's going and head north

I wanna go watch!

:3dbiggrin:

Edit: Before he can jump down my throat, Sammo has banned me from all Nor*Cal functions, because sometimes I flake.

BUT.

Not anymore, puffy is turning over a new leaf.

Keep talking that talk. But once you walk that walk. Then we'll see if you can talk and walk.


I now can not go due to complications at home. Might be considering selling my bike and the car now. -_-"
