Title: How much does it cost....
Post by: Tezboogie on July 28, 2003, 04:47:28 pm
What's it cost to rent Blackhawk Farms for a day?
Anybody know? And who do i get in touch with?
The Blaze Crew and Xaus LLC would like to rent the place very soon, and we just wanted to know what a days worth of time will cost.
Thanks in advance to anybody that knows this information.

Tez:

I do believe the track basis it's cost on several factors like:  The day you want to rent it, the number of people expected, and perhaps the type of machine.

Give them a call and see what they have to say.

Thanks Dawn,
Do you happen to know the phone # over there? It's going to be an all motorcycle event. About twenty, to twenty five bikes are coming plus a bunch of our friends. We're going to need everything that they offer on a regular practice day. I know they probably won't open the restaurant that day, but that cool, we'll have food catered in if they don't.

They last trackday I was in was 2002 and it costed us about $6800 with insurance, 5 cornerworkers and 45 biker (was about 4 licensed racers at that, rest street riders). But 2 yrs earlier it only costed 10 of us licensed racers $1000 (but no insurance or cornerworkers).  :-/

Current cost for five race licensed riders to rent Blackhawk is $1750.  No ambulance, no corner workers.  Just you and the track.

If you're gonna have non licensed guys...then you're in the big bucks, like Rob said.

Post by: Tezboogie on July 28, 2003, 07:54:37 pm
Ok, thanks everybody. I'm going to give them a call tommorow. We're going to have to have the regular stuff that they offer on a practice day, because there's quite a few people coming. Hopefully we can get an August date, if not we'll shoot for the begining of Sept.
Thanks again..

What's going on Tez?  Is this day open to anyone?  Please send me an e-mail. with more information.
Title: Re: How much does it cost....
Post by: Tezboogie on July 29, 2003, 02:14:06 pm
It's going to be a very special day........I'll e-mail you later to explain.
Title: Re: How much does it cost....
Post by: Woofentino Pugrossi on July 29, 2003, 06:35:45 pm
Good luck getting a date on that short of notice Tez. Good chance BHF is booked for the rest of the year.


But it doesnt hurt to ask if theres a date open.
Title: Re: How much does it cost....
Post by: Tezboogie on July 30, 2003, 03:20:36 am
Thanks for the good luck Rob, but the person that we are renting the track for is one the most famous and celebrated people in the world. I think they'll be quite happy to squeeze in a date for him.
But, you never know, they could say no. If that's the case, we'll just give the good people that own Road America a call.
Sean Wyatt..... give me a call. If you don't have my number, call Chris and he'll give it you.

Post by: EX#996 on July 30, 2003, 04:32:08 am
Gosh Tez....

Now you have me curious as to who that "most famous and celebrated people in the world" is.  I remember that BHF didn't want to let Keith Code in this year when we were racing.  Who could it be?

Super_Dave.....
Miquel Duhamel....
the President?

Dawn   :D
Title: Re: How much does it cost....
Post by: Super Dave on July 30, 2003, 04:54:19 am
Squeeze a date?  Well, contracts and all might create a problem for you.  Every weekend and Friday is taken by a race and a practice day.  CCS does have a Thursday and a Monday, I have a Thursday.  Seems like I know of some stuff that is going on, but I don't remember exactly what.

Talk to Cindy at Blackhawk.

Road America...$13k a day, I believe.
Title: Re: How much does it cost....
Post by: motomadness on July 30, 2003, 06:12:04 am
Tez,

I don't have either of your phone numbers anymore since I got my new phone.  I might be able to charge up the old phone and retrieve them, but that's the hard way.  Here's my number, please call me.

(312) 543-3329.

Tez, you flatter me. ;D  Still, you're probably right.  I mean, certain people will tell you that I can get the rulebook changed to anything that suits me by merely placing one phone call, so why wouldn't a racetrack cancel someone else's event just to suit me? ???
Now could you tell everyone that I'm faster than you? ::)

Whaaaa Haaa haaaa haaa!!!!!

Oh my.... My sides hurt after that one!

Well, we're not trying to get anybody's track day cancelled, that's for sure. We'll take anyday though.
We'll see what happens.

13k for Road A huh? Well, I'll tell you this, if this person really wanted to, he could buy (purchase) Road A many times over, so the money thing is a none issue. We just want a track day, that's all.

K3, you are the man and lets face it, without you pushing me to go faster everytime that I see you, I probably would have gave this shizznit up a long time ago. And yes, you are the rabbit that I chase all the time, so I must say thank you for being faster than me ;)

Dawn, now you know S D is DA MAN at all the tracks. He knows all and see's all because he is so damn talanted and handsome :-*  He smiles at all the pretty girls wherever he goes and they melt at his feet, so anything that he wants, he gets. Mick Jagger of the roadracing world, but not quite that old. Now, if he could reveal some of his secrets to me, I would be forever greatful :)

Sean...I'll call you tonight.

Now say that with a straight face!  Holy $#it!  I've got tears in my eyes!  Tez, you kill me!

I was trying to think of where I could get a picture of S_D without a helmet on so we could add those famous "Mick Lips"

I'll take it.

I just took out my 1993 solo Jagger CD...  K3 looked at me strange as I sang it at MAM...LOL!

Tallented?  Me, no...just learned a couple of things a long the way.  Never had the money to buy anything, so I always had to make do with what I could get.  

That's why I have a short bus...no money for those nice pick-ups.

  Tez, I bet I know who the "special individual" is, since I have been working on his Ducati 998.  He also has a GSXR 1000, MV Augusta, and a BMW.  

 Have you seen Lamont lately?  
Title: Re: How much does it cost....
Post by: Tezboogie on July 30, 2003, 07:30:17 pm
T Z boy you are so funny. I think I know who you are talking about but, it's not that person. But that would have been a pretty good guess. Actually, this guy doesn't even live in this country, but he will be here for a couple months trying to have some fun and we're going to help him, that's all.

Lamont we'll be back soon, he's out of town taking care of biz.

I seem to remember some organization having two upcoming weekend events at BHF in August. But who??  ;D

Road America $13K and then some for a week day. Weekends are a few pennies (K) more.

I'm sure that almost everybody knows somebody named Michael Jordan, they're all over the place. The one that I've been hangin out with just happens to like bikes, he also happens to be the greatest basketball player ever.
I'm just lucky to know him.

 If you really have been hanging out with Jordan, what kind of pipe's did I put on his 998?

Post by: Tezboogie on August 05, 2003, 12:56:23 pm
I didn't look at the exhaust, but I did ride the bike and I rode the very limited, "Silver Agusta". He's also got a '03 gixxer 1000. He doesn't even ride the Ducati that much; it's much slower than the giggy.
Lot's of people have questioned me about whether it's him or not. I'm not a star gazer for one, I worked in advertising for a long time and have met plenty of them. But if people don't believe me.......oh well, all I can say is stay tuned.
