There was a previous thread ( http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=61085) about a sponsered noob track day. Is this thread in addition to, or replacing that aforementioned thread Tim? Just so I know whether to sign up on this list, or maintain the other list. Ktnx. =]

Tim,
would you consider giving us first timers a discount if we fund our own track day? It would be awesome to win a free day, but I am willing to pay my own way. Just an idea!!!! Any other noobs are free to chime in...

This giveaway is seperate from the TTD thread. In that one, we are sponsoring riders for a Texas Track Days event.

In this thread, the idea is for experienced riders to donate to a revolving pot, where the winners get to pick who they ride with, where, and when (as long as its within the 30 day time frame).

The purpose of this sponsorship is to give you that discount, as an added incentive to get on the track. I can not speak for the other organizations, but as of now, TTD does not offer a noob discount.

So, please feel free to sign up in both threads, as the drawings will be held seperately.

Donations are still low. I expected to already have a track day to give away by now.

Come on MH, support the novices and show them how much fun track riding really is

Just received this PM, issuing a challenge to you all

If just 15 or 20 posters gave a mere $5.00, you'd be giving a track day away by now.
his donation was $19.94

I don't mean to hi-jack Tim's thread, but I see every noob wants a track day, but few, noob or otherwise, wants to help a noob get there?

C'mon, people! Throw beer money at this cause already.

I agree. This is not just for active track riders to donate. If I was the noobs I would be throwing in 10. each or something. Then we would already be giving away 2 track days. So you might have just recieved a trackday for 10 bucks.

Wouldn't this work really well raffle style? Noobs donate $10 to enter and when there are 20 entries, have a drawing. That's a 1 in 20 shot at a $10.00 track day. I'd take those odds!

For my part I can offer a pair of boots, I have to check the size but I think 10.5 or 11 and a set of 2-piece Tecnic leathers probably about size 46.

Fundamentally this is the same as is being done...only no one is doing it. The difference is that non-newbies can contribute, too, which means that, in theory,we can get to the magic number quicker. However, if every newbie tossed a little money at this now - instead of just hoping they get something for nothing - a track day would be "raffled off" as soon as Tim checked his account! With 24 people on the newbie list as of this writing, and each newbie on the list giving $5, Tim would be very close to $180 (given the cash he's already received). , do it now, newbies, and I'll give the balance after you do!

It's good to see the list of people interested in a track day. Since December, I've donated 5 track days to various people, one of them through the March noob track day. Instead of contributing to the paypal fund, I'm much more likely to notice somebody on the list and bring them along to an upcoming track day. Particularly those folks that I've had a chance to meet on the saturday or sunday forest rides, or other big rides.

I suspect there are quite a few other people on the board that would do something similar.
