Default 5280 Raceway Presents: 24/7 Practice (IIC Prep) 9/6 - 9/8

We're going to keep the track open for practice 9/6 - 9/8 as close to 24/7 as possible. Realistically this probably means 8AM-2AM or so, but that didn't sound as nice in the title. If there's some interest Saturday, we can throw together a quick race, but our focus is going to be giving people as much track time as possible.

We've got a very nice track here. It's as similar to IIC as you're going to find in the country. HD carpet, subfloor, click-track, RC Scoring Pro, SXT, Jaco Blue, RC4 decoder, etc. You'll be able to hear your lap times every lap, and see them on our fancy scoreboard as well. It's a perfect practice track.

If you represent one of the teams competing at IIC, contact me privately if you'd like, and I'll see about arranging transportation / lodging with some of the locals if you're interested.

Denver is Southwest's major hub. Be sure to check their prices on flights.

See you guys soon!

Good question, I'm working to get a solid answer on that now. My feeling is that it won't be much more than our normal daily practice rate ($10). I'll followup with more information soon.

Also, I forgot to mention that we're going to put down the closest approximation possible (we've got two poles to deal with) to IIC's layout last year. Probably prior to the practice event to help get a groove started.

I've heard rumors this year's IIC layout might change, as well as their boards.

Alright guys, got the pricing information. It's $25* (total) which covers all 3 days. Pretty cheap considering the amount of track time you could potentially get!

*Key holders are exempt like usual.

Also, for those that were here during MHIC, we're expecting to fit everybody in the trackside pits. No overflow building to freeze in.
