I wanna go, I wanna go…unfortunately I am in Texas.

How did you get an event at the track and offer it FOR FREE? We have several tracks around here….and they aren't giving away track time by any stretch. What did you do?

Great idea! Wanting to know 'what angle' you used to get them interested. Always wanted to run Willow, such a cool track.

You really should turn 'em out!

Hello folks,

I want to see if anyone is interested in a track day I'm putting together at Autoclub Speedway in Fontana this August. The regular price is $230 for the day but I can get us a discount if we get enough people going. For more information and to register please do so at our new website Home | Eurotopia Forums, so far we've got 650+ register users.

Thank you,

Amer
