2013 R1 Memorial Trackday

DanQ as been working with CMP to secure us a date for next year. Most likley it will be the same weekend as last, Easter Weekend. I know a bunch of you have been wanted something closer for the northern guys/gals coming down. So here you go!!!!! I would hope that our Florida riders would make the drive up. I do not have any prices yet but as soon as the contract is in hand I will let you know.


Feel free to use this as a chat/BS thread.

Scott, what's the weather like up there around Easter? Can't commit at this time. If I do this event I can't justify driving back up a few months later for the Convention. It will be one of the two for me.

We gotta some on this track brotha... I've hit it a handful of times, not as many total days as VIR or Jennings, but I really enjoy this track, and massively love the overall facility. Fun place!

I'll upload some track pics and anything else I may have from there. Fun place, I love it!

Have I mentioned this is a fun place?

As far as the weekend we had to choose from establishing a relationship with this track, my phone is always on. With the doors this event opens for multiple events per year, along with a few other considerations (overall distances traveled by the majority in attendance etc) the choice was made to try this track. We honestly hope everyone will try to make it out to this event.

I don't think I'll be able to make the trip. Not unless randy wants to stop by on his way up

I might've gotten away with one Easter away. But probably won't with two.
