Just 2 weeks after the Autobahn event, the next one from NASA Midwest would be at Road America on August 4-5. Please note that it is VERY VERY difficult to get a weekend date during prime summer time at Road America. Other clubs usually end up with some April or October dates that are freezing cold or even snow. So don't miss out the chance if you have a slight interest of going.
This will also be a *spectator event*, meaning that there would be Car Club Corrals, Drifting all weekend and Live Bands for Saturday night. It will not only be a race weekend, but a large party weekend.
For the track itself, it doesn't need much introduction. It's one of the most prestigeous track in the country with a very long history. It is 4-mile long with 14 turns.
You may be able to register as a driver at the track depending on availability, but there will be a $50 additional fee. However, don't count on it because like Autobahn, it was a sold-out for all groups except for one! Register early online to guarantee a spot and avoid the additional $50.
I've been exchanging emails closely with NASA Midwest and trying to work out some special deal for everyone's interest. Dave (regional director) is kind enough to put together a package. Here's the scope:
**Sign up for the 2-day event at Road America, membership fee for 2008 will be waived ($40) and you get 50% off of the Gingerman event on Sept 8-9!!!!!!!!**
The original price for the September Gingerman event will be $189 for 1-day and $289 for 2 days, which means that by signing up RA, the Gingerman weekend will become only $95 and $145. That is very cheap. (!!!)
In order to track this promotion, this is what needs to be done when registering for Road America:
During the online registration process, when they ask for your car's information, there's a box at the bottom where you can put in sponsor's names. You can put in all your sponsors, but you also need to include the name "Wai" in there. That way, they can track who would be qualified for the free membership and the 50% discount.
To sign up for the Gingerman event, all you need to do is to send an e-mail to Dave (email@example.com) with "50% off Gingerman" on subject line, and he will sync up your info on file. No extra paperwork needed. He'll simply check the Road America entry list and look for the sponsor name "Wai" as verification.
I hope some of your could take advantage of this awesome deal.
Online registration is officially CLOSED.
You can still registration at the track, but it would be a $50 additional charge.
For those who has taken advantage of the special offer (free membership + 50% off Gingerman in Sept), please send an email to Dave Royce at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify if you're on the list for the special offer.
