Tire Wall Day - 2012 @ BHF

Postby ten2doyle102 » Tue Jan 24, 2012 7:16 pm

Well, might as well get it out there. Black Hawk Farms is doing the Annual Tire Wall day where anyone that wants to get an hour of basically free track time, can come and bag some tires. The price is minimal for the amount of fun you get! Plus a free lunch is included as well I believe.

Its April 7th. I should be there! :)

Hopefully I can make it this year. Might want to mention its just track touring, no race speeds. I'll be instructing at the 4/21 drivers school for NSSCC at BHF also if anyone wants to come learn the fast way around that track. ;-)

How much does that school cost??? Might be interested.

Yeah, if it's anything like last year for the tire wall day, I wouldn't have called it "track touring".... more likely respectful racing... lol! We were still hitting like 90mph down the front straight and braking hard enough to overheat my brakes considerably...

I think the school is $180, which includes classroom time friday and track/classroom Saturday.

Fixed it for ya. Looks like they let you go a little faster than 50mph.

God I can't wait until the season starts.

It was like last year. Basically it was a free for all.... we only kept it under 90mph in the front straight. The remainder of the track was basically full out. :) I have some on/in car video too... my friend just needs to finish it. lol!

This year I was pushing my luck.... barely had it ready to go.... ha!

Next year, I want to do a motor swap. I need more power if I intend on running at BHF. I would probably only hit like 95 on the front straight if I did go full on. You're probably getting around 105 if not a bit faster.

I hit around 110 in the front straight, but I can hit 115 on the back straight through the kink. You gotta have the brakes to haul it into turn 7 in control. How did the resurfaced 1 and 7the feel?
