I mean the following in the nicest way possible;

Shut the fuck up. Who are you to pick apart this event like you had something to do with it. For the record all regulations were posted the day this thread was made.

What's that? They've changed? Could it possibly have been the fact that the original road course manager stated "40 drivers, how ever many courses, all you need is a snell rated helmet."

Here's an update for you.

May 2008 the insurance approved us for 20 drivers, 1 course.

Thats right, shit is not how it seems is it? How fucking stressed do you think Derek and myself were, when we found out that we had been decieved?

June 28, 2008 we were able to have insurance allow us up to 40 drivers and 2 courses.

We have been working to make this event a success since Feb of this year. 5 Months of work to bring this to you guys, yet some of you want to act like immature little children and say that it's not good enough.

Excuse me for saying this but, fuck off. We don't need you in the community. If this event is not up to your standards, please pretend that there are no events and continue on the street.

Life is full of change, learn to adapt or fail.

To everyone else;
Thank you for the support, it is deffinatly needed! When we hit huge speed bumps it, what kept us going was the guys saying "damn, oh well. Lets do this anyway!"

I would suggest putting it back up front if you can. Better to be safe than sorry.

I'm having Derek check on 2 things tomorrow:

- If you are required to run an external kill switch for relocated battery. (which would really suck for me)

-If they allow coolers

so whats the situation on a relocated battery? do you have to have a kill switch or does it just need to be in a battery box tied down?

Relocated Dry cell battery -> Tie down. [Kill switch not mention'd I vote good to go.]
[Others must be in a metal box with no vents.]

As far as family insurance plans, if youre registerd on the insurance even as a secondary driver, print a card that says so. Otherwise, who evers name is on the card must register the vehicle. [I for one hope that theyre in the same state and can do this for you, because well... hella insurance fraud :D]
Once car passes tech anyone can drive anyones car.

Coolers -> not allowed to have them.
BUT I was told "Who is going to know what you have in your trunk though?" By a certain manager.

Coolers in the trunks, take what you want from the cooler just dont bring it out.

You will be in stands unless you choose to sit somewhere else with your own chair. The stands are set up for all your guys' viewing pleasure. Trust me when I say this "It will 'sweep' you off your feet." Man Im so funny sometimes!

This amazing course made to test your skills as a driver as well as give an AWESOME show came at a large price although....

There will be a gate at the entrance and they will tell you where to go. That's also where you'll pay.

(All of this is assuming it's like all the other tracks I've seen)


Totally random- who would wear a "Hi my name is..." sticker if I got them? I wanna meet everyone I haven't met, and I feel like if we weren't wearing name tags, I'd just stick with the people I know. That way we'll all be more familiar with each other on here once the event is over. I'll buy them...

I'm doing pics!

And Derek and Brian were over here the other day and were talking about if a lot of people would go in on a nice camera to shoot video. If not, maybe someone already has a nice one. Don't know what happened to that idea...


Anyway, I have a DSLR, so I'll be getting LOTS of decent pics of the event.

The start of the red line is the road you drive down AFTER the big Heartland Park Topeka sign.

Its kinda out of the way imo, take a left when you get to the building in the front of hpt follow it around. Good to go.
