I just heard that there wasn't going to be any practice at Roebling for the races on the 12th and 13th.  WTF?!?!?

I guess that was you that called.  I just called and she said someoe called her a few minutes before.  LOL  Thank God!  I don't like the idea of racing on a track I've never been on!   :o

I'd also wonder a little bit about the track.  Are the facilities nice, or is it like Talladega?  What about power...will we need to pull out the generator?  Also, what about hotels.  Are there any special deals near by?

Lets see, first off there is 2 rounds of practice on Sat and Sun morn if you cant make it on Fri. There are plenty of hotels within 5 miles, right off 95. There is camping allowed, hope you have an airconditioned tent, its hot down there. Last, watch out for all the sealer strips on the track, if you run over them in the corners you will go down. ;D ;D

Hmmm.. no you will not go down if you hit them..as long as it is a dry track .. however if it is wet ...WATCH OUT!!!... there is camping... most of the time plenty of power for everyone.. really fast and fun track. gates close at 10 so if you go into town to toss back a few ..get back...or walk in....lol  bathrooms are pretty good..and last time we were there they were almost done with the new showers.. as for hotels .. something must be going on in savannah that weekend cause alot of the hotels i called were booked for that weekend... oh yeah.. Clay... you going to need fuel that weekend?

If you think 2 rounds of practice is enough for an ex that's never been there.... well, more power to YOU my friend.  :P

Well, would you perfer nothing and longer races?? If you are really good you dont need much practice, right. :P The thing about the sealer strips was to mess with the compititions head. ;D

Uh, the sealer strips at Roebling are much different than anything at Summit.  More like tar snakes.

Get to Roebling and walk the track the night before.  T1 is a decreasing radius that can be tricky, but the track is really just a bunch of throttle control sweepers.  You'll pick it up quickly and do fine. ;)
