Oak Hill Practice Day

I've been talking to some racer friends about goofing off at Oak Hill one day this month. I talked to Darryl (the track manager) yesterday, and he told me the track schedule is pretty much wide open this month. As for myself, I'm thinking 11/21 or maybe 11/22. I heard tale that 11/28 and/or 11/29 is planned for a host of folks to be out having fun, so that's also on my mind.

Anyone here interested? If so, say so here.

In case you wanted to know the particulars of the track rental policies, it works like this:

Once a date has been decided upon, call Darryl and arrange for him to meet you at the track at a date and time agreed upon - don't just show up without him knowing.

Usually more than one racer will show, and Darryl will have you (and any others) sign in and collect money when you get there. Or when he gets there -- I have arrived before he did before, but only by 15 or 20 minutes. Everyone signs a waiver, of course.

The track is available from sun-up to sundown. I think camping is possibility for those that might want to stay overnight, but you'd better talk to Darryl about this.

Anyone can come to the track to watch, but to ride on the track, you must hold a current and valid race license - no exceptions. Darryl will accept all current race organization licenses (WERA, TMGP, CCS, etc.). You MUST bring your current and valid race license with you to the track. Darryl can verify from a CMRA-provided list if you are a current CMRA racer in good standing, but he will NOT accept anything less than in-the-hand proof (i.e. license) from any other organization because he has no way to verify it.

Cost breakdown:

CMRA racers with big bike - $75.00
CMRA racers with mini bike - $50.00
Non-CMRA racers with big bike - $100.00
Non-CMRA racers with mini bike - $75.00

Multiple bikes are okay, but you pay for the biggest bike you ride (e.g. if you bring a big bike and a mini, you're paying for the big bike). While it's not mandatory that the bike you ride be fully wired and equipped for safety per the CMRA rule book, it's very well advised that you get it as close to CMRA tech spec as possible. At a minimum track day safety rules are in effect (lenses taped, mirrors removed, etc.) Of course helmet, leathers, boots, gloves, etc. are a must.

People should post up the best days for them, ranked from first to worst.

Best for me is 11/21. Then 11/22. Then 11/28 and 11/14 in a tie....
