Default Track Day Road Trip HARRIS HILL ROAD COURSE

We have an opportunity to go visit and run for a day at the new HARRIS HILL RACE TRACK in San Marcus TX. It is a track that is located about 2.5 hours from Houston, between San Antonio and Austin. It is a 1.8 mile 11 turn track that has good elevation changes and from my understanding is fun and challenging. We will need to be at least 15 people to make the day and if we all make it out there it will only be $220 for the day. Any car is welcome but open wheel cars and high decibel cars.
The Plan: Meet at 6am on Friday December 19th at the Starbucks Cafe at the corner of I-10 and Kirkwood so I can pass out radios. Take off at 6:30 to get to the track by 9am or so. The track will be ours for the hole day so there will be plenty of driving. I will make my best to have plenty of drinks and food for all of us.
We will run till 5pm and head back home after that.... by then it will be every man for them selves.
If you are interested please send me a note ASAP so I can book the track.
If you have any questions please call me at 713-539-5570

Sounds sweet, but I have one concern. Is there a minimum age requirement? Is it 18+ only? And will there be driving coaches there so this can be a learning experience?

h2r is a fun track! I really like the elevation changes. The people that run the track are awesome and will help to accomodate everyone. I will probably there for this event.

Throwing out an option for those who can't make it on Dec 19.

Porsche Club is hosting a DE event at H2R on Jan 31 2009. That is all day Saturday. Entry fee is $165 for non-members. I am already registered. It would be nice to see a few other Subies out there taking on the Porsches.

Anyone interested?
