    Track Day at 2005 National Rally?

    I see that the 2004 schedule included track days and MSF classes before the rally officially started.

    With Mid-Ohio so close to Lima, will there be track day classes available?

    Thanks.

    There is a short gap between Vintage Days, and the rally. Seems like a nice fit in between!

    I am game for a track day, and they are cheaper and easier to schedule during the week. Might try some of the organizers ans see if they can set something up.

    BTW, if you have never been to Mid Ohio, it is a wonderful facility, long straights, elevation changes, and just a really nice venue overall. I would love to do a track day there.

    Vintage days

    I went to the Vintage Days races this past summer. I wanted soooo bad to get out there with those guys. That track is awesome, but I was a motorsport track virgin at that point.

    Did you get your $10 worth? I did, on the first lap! That was a riot! The guy said 3 laps, 3 wide, no passing! Those 3 laps went pretty quick. I was just getting into it. 115mph on the front & back straight's on the 2nd & 3rd laps.

    I would be interested in track day at Mid-Ohio!

    Mid-Ohio schedule

    AMA Sports already has their Road Race event scheduled for Mid-Ohio on July 18-20. AMA Pro Racing rolls into Mid-Ohio Thursday July 21st for the weekend Superbike race. Don't know if they actually use the track Thursday, though.

    Lorazepam is cooking something up. Be patient.... Soon (VERY SOON) you will see some news that may interest you.

    You go Lorazepam!! I'm trying to be patient. I've been watching this thread for the last 10 days hoping for some news. Can you give us a hint?

    Mid-O

    been going to mid-ohio very regularly for 10 years now. work the corners with CRC and SCCA.... very good times.

    With the dates mentioned earlier I wouldn't get yer hopes up on being able to get on the track. they usually have some bike schools scheduled between the vintage and superbike weekends.

    have also contacted the track previously to see what it would take to rent the joint..... 10g's plus!!!. Michelle (owner) likes to make sure her goldmine produces.

    Maybe Nelson Ledges? that's only a few hours from Lima.

    Nothing wrong with making a profit. Also having done a few events (concerts actually) at outdoor venue, typically most of that money is taken up in staffing... of courseI am sure if we all pitched in a dollar we could rent the track
