E-Town on a weekend

How is it? Can you get more than 2 runs in? Waiting hours between runs?

if you like sitting in the lanes all day listening to Spanish music and "yo yo yo my ****s is so fast" only to make 1-2 runs id say go for it. if you want some runs try island. its not much more of a ride for you. i gave up on englishtown years ago. its a shame. the track was pretty nice

My buddy is refusing to go to Island or Atco. I'm trying to figure out whether its worth it to put my foot down and refuse to go to Etown. I guess I will, though.

If you get there early on Weds and enter the bracket race you will get at least 3 runs. Test and Tune good luck. Sunday is the best day to go.

I have given up on any test and tune night years ago. I try to do 1-3 track rentals a year, worth every penny. Small group, as many runs as your heart desires and no riff raff. If you actually are trying to dial your car in, it is a must. I just do it because I enjoy racing my car.

Last time I went to Atco I didn't bring my car but went to go see a couple of friends race. Literally every other car broke, 4 hours of sitting around and finally at 10:30 they made an annoucement that everyone would get a refund.

Wow, atco used to be like $15. When did that happen?

As a side note, I had one great night at atco, but after that, I've consistently ran best at Island. E-town can go to hell.
