NJFBOA @ NJMP

OK kids, time for the final details to get this off the ground.

I need to know who is seriously interested in attending an NJFBOA Track Day at New Jersey Motorsports Park. This day will end up involving more than just our members and we are not going to be snobs and say f-bodies only.

The first group that spaces will be offered to is the membership of this club, bring any vehicle that passes a basic safety check along with your helmet and you are in.

The target date is Monday, June 15th. The date is a Monday simply because the economics of renting the facility for a weekend event are completely unrealistic.

The costs are estimated to be $250 per driver AT MOST. The costs will most likely come in under that, but we would rather warn everyone what the highest possible cost may be instead of surprising everyone later. As we work on sponsorship and such for this event, we will apply those funds to lowering the per driver cost of the event.

The day will consist of 5-6 lapping sessions per run group. Run groups will be decided based primarily on driver experience. There will also be professional instruction available all day. The instructors are a part of the entry price, no additional fees if you decide to take advantage of their help.

The target to fill the day is 50-55 driver slots. Not all of the slots will have to be filled from with in our membership, but we would obviously like to see as many of our members out there as possible

The day at the track will be run by a professional track day company with years of experience. They have a successful track record and just need to know if we have enough people interested to make this a reality.

Date: Monday, June 15th
Location: New Jersey Motorsports Park
Cost: $250/driver

VERY COOL! ubg is in, and having it on a Monday is a good idea. Less cost+long weekend= WIN!!!!

ubg will promote this on his site, and will get word out to his AMC cohorts. And ubg will also let his buddy Monteque J Monibags know. Monte races Porsches and could prolly fill a seat or 3...

This is already a massive response and we didn't event send the newsletter yet. After that goes out tomorrow I am sure we will have plenty of interest to move this into all systems go mode

Remember, NJFBOA Members get first shot at signing up. Once we have everything in writing and locked in we will announce it here first. So start planning now!!!

BTW, I already have a verbal agreement for a few door prizes at the track day We will work out how they will be given away.

Keep spreading the word kids!!!

Sound's like a lot of fun. If I can ever get around to getting the heads/cam in my car I would like to go. If not maybe I can make it down to watch.

As long as there isn't a schedule conflict, I'd be interested, probably my son as well. We won't know our actual schedules until after the first of the new year.

Yes, helmet will be required. I am working on a deal with a company to sponsor the club that may be able to help with this. Won't come together until after New Year most likely, if you can wait.

What do you need heads and cam for? If the car is running, show up. This isn't going to be in any way a competitive day, just lapping and laughs.

As of now the only requirement will be helmet and a safe car. It will be a general overview of the car safety, no loose stuff flying around, battery held down properly, brakes in good shape, windshield not about to cave in, good seat/safety belts......you get the idea.

As time draws closer we will have a write up on how to be sure your vehicle is properly prepared for a lapping day.

Keep spreading the word kids. It's going to be a great day

Cool.

If anyone has friends that are interested in attending, it may be a good idea to have them join the club and post up here. Since the slots available will be put out to members first and we are receiving such a positive response, it would be a shame to see your friends locked out because we ran out of slots.

I'll most likely be busting my hump in Quantico by then, but if things change you better believe I'll be there.
