SpeedTrialUSA will be heading to the track again, and I'll be there in my 3.4 DOHC Fiero! The next event will be at Buttonwillow on Nov 9-10. They plan to run configuration 13CW. Early signup pricing is $150/day or $250 for both days.
This is not a race! It's just a high performance driving event. There are strict passing rules. There is no competition.
SpeedTrialUSA events typically have 20-minute sessions, and there are 4 to 6 of them per day. It's a LOT of on-track time.
I've been the only Fiero there this year, but I'm hoping we can get at least 5 cars at the next event. Are you interested?
Buttonwillow Raceway is 3 hours from the Bay Area, a little under 4 hours from Sacramento, and just under 5 hours from Las Vegas. There are nice facilities including bathrooms, showers, and RV parking with hookups! Food is available on site, and there are also garages available to rent. Also plenty of room for camping, but bring stakes because it can get windy!
Hotels are available in the town of Buttonwillow (just down the freeway) and in Bakersfield (45 minutes away).
Race gas and street gas are both available on site.

Car preparation is minimal. You need to pass a basic tech inspection which consists of checking to make sure your vehicle is safe for itself and others. You can find the tech inspection form on SpeedTrialUSA's website. Make sure you read the tech info, safety rules, and FAQs on their website!
You will also need an SA2005 or newer helmet. Motorcycle helmets will not suffice.
Hope to see some of you there!
