    [MENTION=21336]VUDUGT350[/MENTION] and I have been wanting to setup a private track day for us GT350 and mustang guys for a while. A fun day to enjoy the cars and good people. We chose Buttonwillow due to its cost, location between Nor-Cal and So-Cal, and friendly wall free environment. We have tentatively made some plans as follows:

    Date:April 16, 2018
    Location: Buttonwillow Raceway
    Time: All Day Track Rental 0600-1700
    Car limit: 60 car Maximum (FULL)
    Track rental: $5600
    Cost per driver: $225 (Everything included)
    Deposit per driver: $50 (Goes toward your track day cost)

    Very happy to provide you all with todays update. I have been collaborating with some of the advanced drivers to work out details for the track day, and it looks like we are going to have a BLAST. Between the group of enthusiasts we have attending, it will be an excellent time to gain and share some knowledge. Lots of good networking to be done and memories to be made. Some small items are still up for change, but this is a solid framework for the event. Please subscribe and follow the Private Buttonwillow track day threads on Mustang 6G and Track Mustangs Online. The event will occur rain or shine. Please forward this email to any friends of yours that are attending, but paid under one email account.

    Fees:
    The total for the track day has increased by $10 to $225. This will include costs for a BLS ambulance during the first few sessions before lunch, and custom shirts made for the event. The final remaining fee of $175 will be due by Sunday, 3/25/18. This will provide time for everyone to have a pay day before the event, get the shirts ordered, and submit final payment to the track. Send the final payment to me via PayPal as a gift (or include the fee) to Exhibitionsofspeed@gmail.com and include your shirt size. Do not forget the "s" at the end of exhibition.

    Track Day Schedule:
    0645-0730 - Check in
    0730-0745 - Drivers Meeting
    0800-0845 - Classroom instruction for new drivers
    0800-0845 - Tech Inspections and vehicle Prep
    0900-0915 - Warm up session for advanced group
    0915-0930 - Warm up session for intermediate
    0930-0945 - Lead follow for beginner group
    0945-1000 – Break / Group Discussions
    1000-1020 - intermediate group (breakdown session after)
    1020-1040 - advanced group (breakdown session after)
    1040-1100 - Beginner group (breakdown session after)
    1100-1200 – Continued Rotating Sessions
    1200-1300 – Lunch Break
    1300-1500 – Continued rotating group sessions
    1500-1515 – Break
    1520-1540 – Ride Along
    1600-1700 – Final Sessions
    1700-1800 – Shut down, cleanup, final meeting

    The track itself opens at 0600 and we can race until 1700. There is a $10 fee per vehicle entering the park. You need to be out of the raceway by 1800. I suggest everyone arrive at 0600 so you can get setup and get yourself prepared. There is a kitchen on site for you to get food etc, but if you have never been to the track before I suggest you bring a cooler with water and snacks. Staying fed and hydrated are key throughout the day. Everyone planning to track their car that day needs to check in and attend the drivers meeting. If you do not attend the drivers meeting, you will not be on track until we get you checked in. Some of the advanced group drivers have volunteered to provide some classroom instruction for the beginner drivers. Everyone in that group needs to attend the classroom session before they are allowed on track. At the drivers meeting I will go into detail about the schedule, but feel free to PM, post, or email questions if you have them.

    I may be traveling that week but I'm in. If I can't make it the funds go to making sure this happens!

    Best way to tell Monday to fuck off is to have a track day!

    Bumpywillow, my 4th favorite track! I am interested, on the tentative date!

    Open to only Mustangs? If you need more drivers, 2 friends (Camaro SS and CTS-V) are also interested. We are all experienced track drivers, even at Buttonwillow.

    Oh man. I so want to do this. We did something similar at Laguna Seca for S2000's back in the early 2000's and it was a blast. Still have the custom t-shirt from that event. You should make one for this too. Will have to check schedule as it's a trek from Colorado but would be awesome to do another day like this.

    From who I've been talking to there are going to be a lot of beginners so no worries there. Should have a good mix of mid-level and skilled drivers too.

    Glad to see all the strong interest between here and Instagram.

    I am setting up a PayPal acct now to handle all the deposits. As soon as it’s live I will send invoices and establish the official list of those going.

    I WANT some other high profile cars comparable to the GT350 out there. We’ve got a few ZL1’s that want in already.
