As promised your former WSCB -Track Day Team, now calling ourselves ďCobra RoundupĒ, is leaning towards having their next Track Day Event at Reno Fernley Raceway on May 15-17, 2009.
Our tentative plans so far:
The event weekend is focused at the track and will be open to Cobra, Daytona, Gt40 types only.
Friday afternoon & evening: check in, unhook your rig and get setup, grab a bite, tech your car, and depart to your favorite hotel. (we will be working on options for group accommodations.)
Saturday: A full day of driving on the track, with instructors and downloads, in various run-groups. At the end of the day we will have a champagne award presentation followed by a delicious Texas Style BBQ and Beer & Wine Garden. During Dinner weíll be having GoPed & Pedal Car Drag Races with prizes for the winners. (letís just start with that for now and see where it goes.) Oh Yes, we are definitely having a Womenís run group again, Absolutely!
Sunday: Same format as Saturday, without dinner, then head for home at the end of the day.
As we move through the ideas, transitions, and growing pains of WSCB, it is our intension to continue to provide a Track Day event where Cobra owners of any make and experience level can bring their car, drive at their own comfort level, learn and apply the safety rules and basic skills of driving on a race track, and of course, have FUN. This is was always at the core of WSCB-Track Day and because of its success and popularity we are committed to keeping with that format.
Your Track Day Team is racing and open tracking all year long. I go to the track and participate 12 to 14 weekends a year. For us, this is a way of life. For most of you, WSCB & Track Day has been the one event you look forward to, and feel comfortable enough with, to get out there on the track and see what itís all about. I understand this, salute you for it, and donít want to loose sight of what youíve created here. Until I see and hear otherwise, we ainít changing the program. We do, however, plan to make Track Day better.
Also, we are looking ahead at different tracks, different possibilities, and bigger venues for the future of Cobra Roundup. But for now and 2009, we have the date, the track, the instructors, and the support to make this happen. Updates and the launch of our new Cobra Roundup website will be coming soon!
Duane is working on developing his Cobras on Highway1 (CH1) gathering, drives, and 2-night stayover at two different locations along the route for an enjoyable get-together with friends and couples, September / October. Stay tuned on that front. Iím really excited about this new spin-off from WSCB. I can finally just show up with my JBL, calmly, and take a beautiful drive down the coast, with wax earplugs of course. I know the road well from my younger SoCal days but never thought to drive it in the Cobra. So, really looking forward to this drive.
If youíre serious about participating in Cobra Roundup 2009, please send me an email indicating your interest in our track event and Iíll put you on the list. :> firstname.lastname@example.org
Talk soon and looking forward to hearing from you,
