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
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.
