Private Buttonwillow Raceway event 8-11-12

Since Buttonwillow has the distinct ability to be seperated into multiple track sections, we have decided to add continued track sessions DURING the roll race portion of the event. The roll racing will happen on the "WEST LOOP", while sessions will continue on the "EAST LOOP". The number of cars on track at a time will be altered for this section due to essentially cutting the track in half, but this is a good option for those that only want to roll a couple of times, or none at all. Track configuration will then change to #17 CCW

Im posting this up to gauge any interest about a private Buttonwillow Raceway track event that will be going on. First off, this will be a private rental, low attendance track day. Most of the day will be a regular, multiple group-runs event, most likely configuration 13CW. Then later in the afternoon, we will setup for a side by side, roll racing shootout on the tracks westside "drag strip". That will be a rolling start, one on one race, just like many of us have NEVER DONE on a highway . HAHA!

We are shooting for a very limited amount of people, within 30-35, which will give plenty of track time, and more importantly, plenty of track room, but also explains the higher price tag than other events. No hardcore wheel to wheel racing, just out having fun with some real nice cars

As far as the roll racing event in the afternoon, that pretty easy to explain. That stretch of track is approx 3600 feet long, and 36 feet wide, so there will be plenty of room to run, and more importantly, stop. speeds of the runs will be decided later, but probably something in the area of 50mph to 150mph or so. There will be markers for the start and stop areas, and then you can circle back around for another go. There are many match-ups i know id like to see, most of all probably being Ed's exquisite LEXUS LFA Nürburgring head to head with Travis' sleek Ferrari 458 Italia.

If you are interested in only attending the roll race portion, feel free to contact me as well. We may be making arrangements for ones to join us for only that portion of the day...

I know this is far from 100% accurate... but could we really get this lucky? Definitely keeping an eye on this[]

Weather is still looking good so far... hopefully it keeps up!
My 458 buddy is probably going to be running some fresh MPSC tires for the event... hes going to be hard to catch!

We do still have some spots to fill, so registration will keep going until spots are filled, or until the day right before the event. And it's not just about filling spots with anyone that will front the cash, as we have turned down quite a few that were ready to pay but were not chosen.
Plenty of interested ones that are still one the fence about joining... so any questions or concerns, feel free to ask!
