    I drove down to VIR earlier this month. Its a long drive and trailering obviously takes a bit longer. The trip took us almost 14 hours.

    I don't know what I was thinking but I did this drive overnight after working all day...by the time I got there, I had been driving for 14 hours and awake for almost 30!!

    Get a speedpass too...you will save lots of time getting through the tolls.

    Oh, and btw, that track is absolutely beautiful. It will be an awesome track to ride!!

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    I am uploading a video of a lap of the north course to whet your appetite. It should be up in about 5 minutes.

    if you cranked it up you could kinda hear somethin

    i'm still very interested as long as it's not gonna cost me a leg... i can deal w/ paying w/ an arm, but not an arm AND a leg.... i like my legs better than my arms anyway, but i'll still need at least one arm... so if it's one arm or less then i'm in

    UPDATE!

    I should hear back from VIR tomorrow on cost for this.

    The dates I am looking for are February 24th and 25th. This is winter break for most school districts.

    We may go with a 2-day event, depending on cost.

    Comments? Suggestions?

    derek

    I take it you will not be camping as the average lows for February in Alton is 28F (highs of 52F).

    Pete, the hotel rooms are so cheap down there that the cost of the hotel room would be about $30 or so each for two sharing.

    I will ask about camping though.

    they do not normally allow camping., just for some race weekend., for all trackdays i know of they do not., as they need to pay people to be there if they allow camping..,


    and for the price of the hotel ., split with someone or even a couple people and sleep on the floor still warmer...

    and even if you camp they charge a fee of $25 to camp ..

    Correct, it may be NC/VA border but it does still get pretty damn cold there in February.
