Just to clarify this meet is not a free track day, it is an event to meet and come check out Willow springs which includes free lunch, free one hour driving clinic session (limited track use with car skid pad control), and raffle prizes.
Now for those who are interested in running the track the entire day, Extreme Speed Track Events has offered us a discount rate of $90 (regular $120). This includes basic instructions and timing.
Please use the promo code sow9 (all lowercase) when you register at www.extremespeedtrackevents.com

Hello folks,

I want to see if anyone is interested in a track day I'm putting together at Autoclub Speedway in Fontana this August. The regular price is $230 for the day but I can get us a discount if we get enough people going. For more information and to register please do so at our new website Home | Eurotopia Forums, so far we've got 650+ register users.

Thank you,

Amer
