Groups will be out for ten minute intervals begining at 9am
NO CONES (if you have ever wanted to runn GSS flat out, here is your chance)
You can run as many times as practical.
Lunch is included.
Maximum of 4 (maybe 5) slots available.
For more info, and to register contact David @ 713-461-5208

That's Grans Sport speedway Jack. It's dangerous there....the infield has loose ****...that I would not be caught in if you happen to find yourself offthe track...

Not only that, you'll find yourself running around the track with inexperienced drivers driving as fast as they can on the same track as you....! Not a good combination....and not a good idea. I have seen a supra run off the track and cause alot of damage to his car. This track is not very well maintained or not at all!! And they don't even wear helmets!!

No, they have rented out GSS, the old blimp-base course SCCA used to use for Auto-x.

sorry it's so big:

I don't trust the facility. They want $800 to rent the $hithole, then for insurance, you're on your own. No thanks. I'll pass.

GSS is fun to run without cones. You will hit 70-75 mph in 3rd gear going into the very tight left hander, allowing for a little heal-toe practice. The rest is second gear. I would have to agree with Forrest that the place is getting kind of scary if you leave the track ($10 bucks it happens at this event).

As always, be prepared to face your insurance company when taking your car on an unrestricted speed track.

I can't afford any sheet metal damage right now, so I'll pass.
