    Default need info on Springmountain at Pahrump

    going to Springmountain for SuperMiata BBQ this weekend....

    questions:

    1. What time does the track close Friday and Saturday night ? is it like BRP that opens 24 hours on weekend, or like Chuckwalla that closes by 9pm ?

    2. is there a shower facility in paddock ? (I know they have SPA, shower, shooting range, swimming pool, club house, bar, but that's for rich dudes with membership)

    3. tunnel to access the paddock - how big of a vehicle can fit through ? last year my RV (towing a trailer) couldn't go through the tunnel. I had to wait for track to go cold in order to cross the track surface to get to paddock. so if you show up late, you are stuck till lunch break or after track closes......

    William, I called and asked some questions:

    24 hour access through security over this weekend to access the pits and sign in

    tunnel needed only when track is hot. RV's might not fit in tunnel
    - before 8am or after 4pm or lunch (12-1pm)
    - shouldn't be problem for late night arrivals

    The lady I talked to didn't know anything about restrooms
    - I seem to remember the building in the pit area had restrooms and changing areas. A shower might not be out of the question.

    Anyone know if there's shore power available in the paddock? That would be nice.

    Shore power, no

    Showers, no

    You can always rent a condo for a night, don't think the price is to bad.

    someone posted on FB that they no longer rents out to HPDE group.

    but per Aaron:

    "Also I heard from a member there's going to be two new hotels built right out front of the track within the next 24-36 months. They're also starting to build a bunch of houses and rv casitas around the lake. All that will happen within the next 12-24 months. So there will be ALOT more "on site" accommodations soon. "

    I was there last month and there are two big houses at 5B where it used to be open desert, they have driveways that lead on to the track! It was a real surprise the first time I came around that corner. The restrooms in the building that has the Spring Mountain school garages has at least one shower. I think that one is always open during track events.

    1. confirmed that gate is open 24 hours on the weekend.

    2. There is a hot shower.

    3. tunnel is good for 9' 9". so if you have an RV or a trailer with A/C or a tall trailer. you need to wait till track goes cold (during lunch or after 5pm) to leave the track.

    Saturday morning, first time coming around T13 (?), saw 3 big houses, one with a fuc*ing helicopter on the roof. 100 feet driveway that goes from a house garage to track surface I am racing on. For a moment, I thought I made a wrong turn and was now in a residential zone, so slowed down to 25MPH......

    there were people standing behind a fence 40 feet from where I was tracking out. One of the back yard has a kiddie slide. One of the garage has a plane parked in it.

    this is so F*ed up. I kept losing my concentration through that corner during the SuperMiata race.

    So you encounter the guy in the paddock while looking at timing sheets, not knowing who he is. Modestly, and genuinely surprised you say "Wow, I just set the lap record for my class at a 2:3x.xx. Pretty stoked". He replies cooly, "That's my house over there with the helicopter on it." Turns and walks away. You suddenly realize how pathetic your entire life up to this point has been.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.
