I tell you what... it's been a long time since NC/SC has had one of these.

I'm thinking sometime in July at the Rock. Three Saturdays are open.. the 24th is a special case.

July 10
July 24
July 31

July 24 is Fun Runs, but it's a Phantasm Motorsports night, so that will likely be clincher for crowded.. but with the amount of horsepower hanging around NC, could be some fun beating up on some imports.. some of them will probably be fast. I don't have much of a preference for any weekend, if anything, a slight inclination against the 24th.

The 10th is good for me. It's to early to say about the 24th or the 31st.

I'm planning on going to zMax this Wednesday and the 7th of July if anyone is interested see this tread.

It would be fun to chew on some rice :D. Now, where'd I put the soy sauce? :tongue:

It's looking like the 10th is gonna be a go date, if the weather holds out. If we decide to go for another date, I'll probably take the mark viii.. so what kind of times/mph it can tear up going down the track... 100% bone stock, baby. Turbocoupe is making the trip, this time.

Ok, let's iron out some details.

I guess we'll meet at Rob's house.

What time?

According to the Rock website Gates Open at 6:00 Test and Tune Starts at 7:00

Is this AM or PM?

Depends on if we eat before hand or not :p If we're gonna eat, for example Outback, then I say meet there 5ish. Thinking to be at the track 6:45-7:00pm. Otherwise, Rob will have to chime in if the we meet at his place, but I say let's meet at 6.. leave by 6:30 so we can be there when they start running. If we're eating, we'll need a head count so we can call ahead and not have to wait for seating.

We're going to have to keep an eye on the weather.. been watching it all week and it's looking more and more like there may be thunderstorms that evening. Rockingham has the tendency to close gates at the breath of the possiblity of rain. Who knows, with it not being a simple test/tune with CarolinaRides.com being affiliated with the evening, there may be slightly more resistance to canceling the evening.

It looks like DarrenP with CarolinaRides.com never got it set up? I sent an email to Rockingham earlier today asking for clarification. We'll see if I ever hear back from them ...

The event is listed on the Rockingham Website but that doesn't mean much. :zdunno:

I think the track is still planning on opening but I'm not leaving town on Saturday until I know for certain.

Well.. it's starting to not look good for tomorrow. Probabilites for thunderstorms Saturday evening have shot up significantly over the past 24hrs. I called them and they said closing is still not likely. Looks like it's going to be a last minute call, kind of thing. Hopefully, tomorrow around noonish we'll be able to lock in what they're going to do a little more solid.

I got a PM from John at Rockingham Dragway on my CarolinaRides account offering us a Trophy at no cost to us for those of us who run our Tbirds against each other Saturday Night.

I wrote him back and said we'd be interested.

Weather permitting ...

I also heard back about the schedule it's 6 PM until midnight.

Let's plan on meeting at Robs at about 4 PM and then driving down to Outback in Rockingham at 4:30 or 4:40 so we can be sat down and eating by 5ish.

Track opens at 6 PM and runs start at 7 PM and go 'till midnight.

Accuweather is calling for thunderstorms in the area at 7 PM and partly sunny at 8 PM so, the weather's gonna be a crap shoot. Temps should be down into the 70's by 8 PM. Hopefully if it does rain they'll be able to dry the track so we can get some runs in.

Bring Video cameras and regular cameras if you got them I'd like to be able to put together a photo/video compilations.
