Post by Chen » Tue Jun 07, 2011 3:51 pm

The three of us rented out a local track. I had to make this video for a film project.

We talked them down from the usual $150 per person for a test and tune day. You don't really get your pick of days but it's so worth it.

So they tell you what day you can go? They give you the whole track for less that $500 for the day?

We can pick any day they don't already have something scheduled (IE a day where no one would be there anyway). Which is always a tuesday or a thursday. I could go just me for $150 for the whole day. They say it's a 4 hour period but they like me so I go all day :)

ask around. This is an oval track where they really can't rent it to many people during the week.

It was ridiculously hot that day; when I left work to head for the track, it was 97F, and that's not the heat index corrected temperature, either. By the time I got there, it was starting to cool down, but my first lap was run in 94F temps... was slightly hotter on track.
