Thumbs up Houston Performance Driving (HPD) Brings U! Midnight 1320* @ LMP! July 12th!

S! Houston Area Race Fans!

H.P.D. (Houston Performance Driving) in conjunction with Performance Driving Network. Proudly presents one of the most fun filled racing events of the Summer. Midnight 1320* "Where only your skills and moon will guide you to victory"!

I. Outline:

- What is Midnight 1320?

Lately street racing has become a big issue in Houston, with fatality's and the real HPD cracking down on this illegal activity, Houston Performance Driving is stepping up to the plate to take "racing" to the track that is fun and legal for everyone involved. Spectators and Racers alike will have the feel of a heads up street race minus a staging tree and replaced with a bystander flagging them down to begin the race. The idea is even getting thrown around of delighting the track to complete the atmosphere we are shooting for.

With the help of John Hennessey and Lonestar Motorsports Park (LMP)this event could really shine a new light and help Houston streets by taking these illegal activity's off the public roads and to move them to a secure environment. People of all ages can enjoy the rush without the harm and consequences of hurting or even killing someone.

II. Racing:

- Teching in and Staging?

HPD Staff will be with you every step of the way to get racers pointed in the right direction. Once you are teched in up front and ready to race. Please move around to the staging lanes where HPD staff will be funneling you on the drag strip. You will be paired up with another car/truck for your run. If you have a grudge match or friend you wish to race. Please inform the HPD staff member in the staging lanes to place you in line. The staff will do all it can to accommodate the racers requests. However, HPD and LMP staff will have final say in all matters.

- Setting up?

Once you have been staged in line roll onto the track. HPD staff will have someone working the water boxes. There is room to roll around the boxes if needed.

After your burnout please pull up to the staging box as setting up the 1/4m.. The fallger will ask you "ready"?! The driver must give a signal that he/she is ready before the flagger will ask the next driver. Once both racers are ready* the flagger will raise his arms high. When the flagger drops his arms you are all clear for launch. The tree will be set for instant green. So once you launch your time starts. Please pick up your time slip at the shack on your return. Remember time slips in Midnight 1320 are just for fun.

- Winners?

This will be 1/4 mile run. And the tree will be on but not used. Racers will cross the line to stage, but the race will begin not when the tree goes green but when the flagger flags the racers to start.

(Reason for this is so racers can receive timeslips. Reaction time will be the only thing that will be skewed)

(Please also note no times will be posted only the lights on the track will inform spectators of the winner)

III. Midnight 1320* Information:

When: July 12th, 2008 (Saturday).
Where: Lonestar Motorsports Park (Sealy).
Track Link:
Time: Gates open @ 9PM! Racing starts @ 10PM! Racing ends when we are done!
Cost: Racers = $25.00 and Spectators = $10.00


V. Mission:

Houston Performance Drivings mission is to bring all the race crews, independents, and shops together for a different kind of track night* with a street racing theme. Please understand that HPD is NOT* a car club! It is simply a forum where people with a passion for performance driving can go to find out what activities are happening in their area.

This event is open to anyone and everyone! From the 9 sec trailer queens to the 14 sec Yahoos. There should be a great mix of cars and trucks. Such as Vipers, C5, C6s, Z06s, Z28s, SSs, Mustangs, Saleens, Cobras, Lightnings, SRT 4s, 6s, 8s, 10s, P-Cars, M3s, M5, M6s, Mercedes AMGs, WRXs, STIs, EVOs, Supras, 350 Zs, G35/37s, Hondas, Imports and Domestics! 100% open to anyone who enjoys the street racing lifestyle. Join us!

VI. Questions or Concerns:

Please PM Garret Oliphant (G-Z06) or Troy Dixon (xtc4us) if you have any questions about Midnight 1320*.

- This Midnight 1320 event is a test run for future planing. HPD hopes that with a success, we can get surround law enforcement agencies to bring out their high-end interceptors. Such has SSs, Mustangs, Impalas, and others. This will bridge the gap between the fuzz and racers.

- Also bracket racing with cash pay out will be implanted inside the event structure. This will help add to the street racer lifestyle aspect.

- HPD will advertise this event in Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio to bring more racers to the event.

This event has some serious potential for a track event unlike anything Houston has seen before. Join us and help make it happen!

Thank you.

HPD Staff.

sounds interesting possibly, i've never ran my bike at a "drag strip" before, interested in seeing what it can do in a straight line, even though I like curves more really....

whats the rule on gear required for a bike?

Trevor,

Best to have all the gear possible.

- Helmut.
- Full suit.
- Boots.
- Gloves.

- I see a lot of guys with body armor type protection.

Go easy if you never ran the 1/4 before. Few lite passes and you should be good to go. We normally don't have a tone of bikes come out, but I wanted to keep the door open for all the Moto-Houston guys/gals.

If you need anything else PM and I'll get back ASAP.

Troy.

full suit is required? I have jacket / gloves / helmet / steel toe boots....but no over-pants.

I usually rent leathers for track days, but I really don't want to rent leathers for a drag strip event.

I'll check into it a bit more with John and see what he will allow for the bikes. I have previously been out there for another event with a textile riding jacket, helmet, gloves, and over the ankle riding boots, with jeans on. While it was allowed some concern was shown on John Hennessey's part and I am unsure what he will allow now.

I heard back from Lonestar and the following will be acceptable for this event.

-Jacket
-Over the ankle boots
-Gloves
-Helmet


Other than that, use good judgement.

Don't show up intending to make passes down the track with running shoes, shorts, etc. and if you have leathers, they would always be better than the minimum shown above.

Not a clue yet to be honest. I haven't made plans for anything past the 4th of July weekend.

I thought that I'd heard that you shouldn't wear steel toed boots on a motorcycle.

I've never heard of that...my same boots i'm wearing now saved me in a 100mph crash on my previous bike I had....little scuffs, nothing major.

I'll say it does make shifting a little harder at first, but you get use to it and forget about it after you've been wearing them everytime you ride.

Sounds like a fun first track run for me. Is it $25 for each pass or for as many passes that you can squeeze in? When waiting for your turn, do you have to wait in line for hours, or for just a few minutes (I'm wondering if I should invite a friend to watch, don't want her to be in the stands alone for the whole event)? Thanks!
