Hey all, I just got my membership at H2R and to celebrate I'm going to be driving out there Weds-Fri. I know that is the middle of the work week but I just thought I'd put it out there if anyone wants to meet out there and hang out / shoot the shit / drive some laps, I'd love to have some TJ company!

 

Even if you aren't a member, I can bring you on with a guest pass. You just pay them $150 for a half day or $250 for a full day.

 

My goal is to really learn the track and also learn my new car. I'll be starting on Weds by taking it pretty slow and steady with the goal of feeling confident and starting to push hard by Friday. 

 

If you're interested, reply here or PM me and we can exchange info!

Awesome, I have an email alert set up in the H2R thread for just such an occasion, and I have a flexible schedule  :biggrin:

 

I might be interested in coming up from Houston for a half-day, it would be Weds or Thurs, I'll know tomorrow.

Awesome I'd love to meet you and turn some laps together! Keep in mind that Weds they are closed from 2pm onwards for maintenance. Thursday is open all day long, however they will be running the track counter-clockwise (first time for me). Friday is another full day and will be clockwise running.

Wish I could. You know how to get a hold of me. If you decide to do this again, let me know.   :)

Cool! The weather looks better for Friday and my schedule is more open than Thurs. Not 100% sure, but I'm aiming for Friday.

Clay,

I'll be there today and tomorrow.  (I live 10min away)  Will be working on Longhorn Racing garages most of the time but will take some lap breaks too.  We have a huge group of customers Saturday morning so I'll be there all day Sat.  Text me to keep in touch.

Not raining on anyone's parade (ie - yours!), just comment / question...seems like a high price for a guest pass. If I bring a guest to ECR there cost (and mine) is $0. I know that MSR-C charges $15-20 per session when you go out as a guest, but $250 for a day seems pretty high. Just curious what you get...and how much does it cost if you are *not* a guest of a member? Not flaming you / H2R, just curious. I can delete this if you want...

Seems high to me too. Not sure why they charge so much. I'm a new member though so maybe someone with more knowledge can chime in.

Maybe they simply don't want many guests :)

I think you nailed it! LOL

 

I'll be honest with you though...for what it takes me to go to a track (especially if it's a weekend and I'm bringing the diesel pusher, the track fee is the least of my concern...but it all does add up, in the end...and my wife constantly reminds me of it! LOL).

Grant,

Is the track only open to cars Sat 4-6?  Thinking I can come a bit earlier like 2 pm if the bikes typically leave around that time.  Was going to go Sun but looks like rain.

Hey all, I actually decided to cut the trip short. I drove today in the rain and it was a hoot, but the weather forecast for Thurs and Fri is going to be really cold (high in the 30s) and probably wet.

Ok, thanks for the heads up Clay! I was gung ho about coming out from Houston later this week, but I just discovered a slow air leak in one of my tires. :sad: It's time for a new set anyway. If you're ever looking for/willing to host guests in the future, let us know on here.  :biggrin:
