    Default Chuckwalla Valley Raceway March 28-29, 2015 SpeedVentures

    SpeedVentures is running an open track event at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in Desert Center, CA (off I-10, halfway between Indio and Blythe, about a 3-hour drive from Los Angeles), on the weekend of March 28 & 29, 2015. Anybody here interested? Great medium-speed road course with an incredible flow of turns.

    I plan to be there with a few friends. One is an open track driver in a C6. Another is a POC instructor who tracks a 997. The other is a good friend is a track beginner and who will be attending an earlier SpeedVentures event before Chuckwalla, to get some first track day instruction at Buttonwillownon March 7, before joining us at the end of March at Chuckwalla. Best time of year in the California Desert. Weather should be perfect. Who's in?

    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - my last track day car (FOR SALE or not, depending on how I feel when I fall out of bed tomorrow morning)
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    Hoping I'll make it out for SPM. Looking more like it might be in a rental than my car that's still coming back together though. Love that track, should be perfect conditions too.

    Just make sure to stay at the track in any way possible. Indio is a long ways away...

    Drove CVR once during a private track day and really liked the track. Challenging but flows nicely. I am going to try to make this one.

    SPM race as well as Speed Ventures Cup race (open to any race-prepped car) depending on how many cars we can field. If you're caged up, sign up!*

    *full disclosure, I'm on the payroll at SV. But I also want some folks to race with on Saturday

    Agershon,

    Are you throwing down a gauntlet for the mighty Thing car?

    I might just have to make it if there is racing to be had.

    I needed one more lap to get you during the Alfa Club graduation race ... let's finish this!

    Gauntlet = thrown.

    I hear that there's a huge BBQ at chucky at the end of March, and also some guys bringing their cars to do something before they crack the beers.
