Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Can be a cheaper weekend if we take one car and split the cost of fuel.

Entrance fees and Friday practice ~ $650
Camping and electric ~ $125
Food/water/ice ~ $150
Fuel ~ $500 round trip if averaging 12 mpg @ $4/gallon ($480 but I rounded up)

$1425 total estimate.


1442 miles round trip

Guess I scared everyone away. I paid for all the gas in Chris' truck when we went to CMP, but he got us hotel rooms.

No tires or garage in that estimate. I'd consider Roebling if I could keep it under $1200-1300, which would include new tires to race on. Your van, Kaz's trailer. I will set up a lawn chair in the van to sit uncomfortable for the ride.

I saw that. Good stuff. They call it giving back, though. It's not giving back when you're only doing it for the money cuz you can't get enough people from either org to sign up to ride in the middle of winter.

1 in the van and 2 in the trailer. So gas and hotel could be split 3 ways, your diesel van pulling my trailer should get better mileage than Chris's V8 pulling his rather hefty trailer.

I think at the very least they give vets and active duty a free day on the 11th.....I think.

I did Veterans day my first season. I was going to continue doing it, but it's cold out. Not fun riding if you can't really push it.

Hotel for what? That's a 1 day trip each way.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

If you want to do it let me know. We would leave Thursday morning and drive all day (10 hours from my house) I like to get there with at least an hour before dark so I can get setup. Practice Friday race the weekend and drive all day Monday. I can sleep in the van or in a hotel.

I missed Friday practice with this calculation. Sounds a little too rich for my blood, but I will get back to you.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Friday practice depends on if CCS or a track day org hosts it. Prices can fluctuate.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

They did that last year and I missed the deal. Not the greatest bodywork ever, but if you crash at every track day/race you go to then it is worth it.

Hmmmm.....$770 shipped. I guess not terrible for 2 sets of bodywork if you split with someone.

$649 for my bike and I thought I paid 500 even. Call STG and ask Jason about it.
