WI/IL: Tire wall day at Blackhawk Farms Raceway 4/2

Postby M20_fever » Mon Mar 21, 2011 5:14 pm

There is a tire wall day coming up on 4/2 at Blackhawk if anyone around WI/IL are interested. Its basically a day volunteers come out and fix/move/setup the tire walls for this season. It starts around 8am and goes to around 2pm. This will be the first one I attend, but from talking with someone who has gone to all of them for several years its about 2 hours of work in the morning, then around 2 hours of FREE track time, followed by a FREE lunch!

I know for me this will be a perfect chance to shake out any bugs before the season starts, and will be a good chance to mingle with a lot of fellow competitors.

Here is the link: http://www.blackhawkfarms.com/?p=481

There is no registration or anything, just show up. If anyone plans to attend hit me up, maybe we can meet up for breakfast in town or something.

me? I've put 2500 miles on it in 3 years...no I don't daily it, lol. Hopefully I have my new RX7 brakes and H&R springs installed, so thats what the shakedown would be for. I'll be trailering it there, and to every event this year. I do drive it on the street, just not every day, and not at all in the winter. I really need to get a peerless skid plate, the roads around here suck so driving it around town is a pita.

I can't, have to work Friday. Its a little to soon to be taking days off. I really need to get these brakes done this weekend or I won't make tire day at all...

also, keep an eye on the weather, if its going to be crappy I won't be going.

yeah I'll be watching the forecast closely, but I am going to try and get my calipers rebuilt tomorrow so I can install them Sunday. If I get lucky I can get the springs and mounts from you in time to install by then. If this day doesn't pan out there is a drivers school at Blackhawk on 4/15 that I am for sure going to. Thats really the priority date to have the car ready for. I'll start another thread for that this weekend, so if you can only make one or the other, go to the drivers school!
