At the Track Friday 8/18 Buttonwillow Track Day only $175!

Leadfoot Adventures has a track day at Buttonwillow Raceway on Friday August 18th, and reg is pretty cheap at only $175 for the people who sign up early. This event will sell out though, so you might want to register pretty quick.

If you’ve never done a track day before and you’re curious about what it would be like to drive your Suby on a real racetrack, this event is for you! Seasoned drivers are definitely welcome in the faster intermediate and advanced sessions, but the newest drivers will get special attention. Leadfoot Adventures has a great group of very experienced drivers who will be instructing the rookies both in classroom sessions and out on track. Check out the “Rookie Jump Start” page the www.leadfootadventures.com website if you're new to the scene.

For those of you who know Buttonwillow, we’ll be running the #13 track configuration, which includes both the “Lost Hill” and “Bus Stop” segments. In the counter-clockwise direction, the exit of the sweeper and entry into the Bus Stop is freakin’ awesome. Man I can hardly wait to get back out there!

See ya at the track!

I've been to buttonwillow before... favorite turn?? probably the first hill... that one is a bit tricky and you can go too fast really easily and wind up in the dirt on the other side of the hill... fun track...

Yeah it's blind for a second at the hill and if you're too hot in there, even if your line is good, you could get your tires dirty.

Sorry about the late reply. Dunno what happened but I didn't get an email notification of your post.

Anyhow, you can get to the reg site from the LeadfootAdventures.com website or by going to motorsportsreg.com and doing a search.

My buddy ran Streets back in June on RE750's and he looked like a happy dog all day...wagging his tail almost every turn. It was about 100 degrees that day.

The early-bird pricing has been extended, so if you're on the fence you have until August 12th to save your spot on the grid for only $175. If you're new to the track we'll provide you with an instructor at no extra charge.

As promised, we've secured a discount rate at the Willow Inn for both Thursday and Friday nights. Whether you stay one or both nights, tell them Leadfoot Adventures sent ya and the rate will be $46.95+tax. Check in is after 2pm. The gal said the normal rate is $54.95 on Thursday and $59.95 on Friday, so that's not a bad price break we’re getting.

We'll be getting together at the Willow Ranch restaurant on Thursday evening to get something to eat and hang out for a little while. Hope you can join us!

There's still some room on the grid right now, so if you'd like to go please register soon to make sure you get in.

If you've been waiting to sign up because you're worried about the weather being too hot, don't worry... the forecast is for an afternoon high only in the mid-90's, which really isn't all that hot for Buttonwillow.

A few spots remain open in all run groups this Friday: Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. Hope you can make it because the weather forecast is for a high of only 95 degrees. If you know Buttonwillow you know that’s downright cool for this time of year!
