SoCal in February...mmm....if I had more money to blow, I'd fly out there just to get away from the cold and to hang out. I'd be your "pit crew"

Hoping to be there both days. I still need tires but may be able to source some take offs from a friend to get me through the weekend. Just started a new job so money is tight but with any luck I'll be out there!

Looks like I failed to register in time, so I'm SOL for the 19th. Probably for the best anyway since I just dropped some dough on a new (to me) truck and I need to get some tires, track boots, and a street helmet.

Have fun, be safe, and I'll see ya at the next one.

We are looking at some other dates so I'll post up as we book dates. Would be cool to get another forum track day in like we did a few years ago. That was a lot of fun with a lot of cool people. We did it on a weekend where there were two dates and camped. Would anyone here be interested in that?

I would just run whatever decent street tire you already like. It probably won't rain a lot and it's quite fun riding in the wet honestly. You will learn a lot. Just don't go running off track and dumping it in the mud... at least in the afternoon on Sunday I don't get dirty retrieving you and your dirty bike.

I probably won't be there Monday due to work. But should be there Saturday night.

Just play it by ear. Put whatever tires you normally run with, and bring a set of rain tires. If it starts pouring, mount the rains on and go have a blast while most people sit in the pits bitching about the rain

I don't unfortunately. I'm probably going to need tires too if I ride. There's a chance I won't and even if I do it's half a day so I'd be fine if it's dry... but don't wanna risk my half day lol
