      SoCal: Time attack tuesdays

      Hey guys,

      I heard about this from Rob McGregor while at the Pleasanton goodguys show.

      Its on a track in Riverside. He said it's a lot of fun and I'm thinking about checking it out tonight. Would be great to get a few people together to go one of these Tuesdays,



      Its every other Tuesday.

      PS I really like the fact you can bring a passenger. This has to be at least as intense as a goodguys peanut and I'm guessing moreso.

      EDIT:

      Here is a video I found online. Looks like ~50 seconds to a min a lap. Not a big track but for $20 looks like fun.

      No takers eh? c'mon SoCal peeps this place is fun and apparnetly its EVERY Tuesday instead of just every other. Maybe we could get a once a month gathering of PT cars at this place.

      I wasn't able to leave as early as I planned so I got there in time to only run the last of the 3 sessions. So here is what I learned about how the place works.

      It costs $3 per person general entry to get into the place. To run your car costs $20 a session and you can have a passenger for an additional $10. I'm not sure the passenger has to pay each time if you run more than one session.

      They run three sessions. Each session you start off with two parade laps and to feel out the track. You then pull back into the pits. You then get three timed laps. The way the laps work is you pull out of the pits (which are about 1/3 before start/finish) and do a warm up lap that because of the pit location works about to be about 1.3 laps. You cross the start/finish at speed and do your timed lap. You then do about a half of a lap to cool down and pull back into the pits.

      So for $20 you can get a decent amount of seat time.

      The three sessions run around the following times.
      ~5:45 - 7:15 (can get an extra timed lap depending on how many cars in this group)
      ~7:30 - 8:30
      ~8:30 - 9:30

      There is a pretty decent mix of cars there but the most popular car there is the miata by far. There was a cool LS powered miata laying down some nice times and sounding sweet going around the track.

      So the layout is the "optional course" pictured here with one modification I point out:



      So, how did I do? Well like I mentioned above I got there late so I had to run in the 8:00 group which ran from around 8:30-9:30. It was dark so the nervousness factor went up quite a bit and as you will see in the video Jenni took I dipped a tire off on my first timed lap. It's not to bad running in the dark but next time I will try to get some day time runs too.

      I ran a 52.19, 51.33 and 51.84 on my three timed laps. So I was around 4th fastest in my group of 13 cars. My group had 3 or 4 miatas and 3 BMW's (E30, E36 and E46) so I'm pretty happy with my run times for my first time out and being in the dark!

      Here is a video Jenni took holding by hand so its a bit shaky:



      Some things of note.

      Start finish line first appears at about the 20 second mark.
      My timed lap starts around 1:15 in.
      I ran all 3 of my sessions in 2nd gear the whole time. I was just taching out on the back stretch if I took the corner well. This puts my speed at about 60mph.

      Overall, this place was a ton of fun! I'd love to get more peeps out there!

      Looks awesome! Its cool that they have late sessions, I will have to get out there sometime. We should get a group together and caravan out there, get a little PT session going on. I like the monthly get together idea.

      I don't remember if I suggested this track in a post before, but it's something we should definitely do. Pick a Tuesday and I'll see how early I can get out there. Matt and Jon, what Tuesday is good for you guys?

      Ok Carl spill the beans! Whatcha up to?

      I'm probably going back to this place the week after next on 7/27 if anyone else wants to join.

      For a night to try and get a lot of people together how about August 10th?

      Brett, I don't really plan that far in advance, I would say pick a date that is a couple weeks out and I should be good!

      Chad, I'd probably be up for going next time you head out there, provided I don't decide to take my car apart for some reason. I really want to see what the last round of modifications has done to my car, and this looks like fun, especially for $20.

      Oh, and a couple questions. Did you get any un-timed, warm up laps, and would you be willing to run multiple sessions?
      *edit* nevermind, I didn't read, and realize you wrote that everyone goes on a couple parade laps.

      I'll have the time next month and the price is right. Not too long of a drive from the High Desert, but the fun would be worth it.

      I cannot do the 27, because I am taking the day off of work on the 26 before. I wish I had read this a week ago I would have taken the 27 instead. The Malice Malibu just got reassembled from being apart for the last two weeks. I have been working on it for the last month. All that is left is to align the front end.
