That caveat is meaningless right now; we do plan to add reserved and RV parking down the road.

Fyi, we paved the ambulance slip (after T1) so everyone can run 3 TT laps w/o a cool-down lap ... and STAY ON THE ASPHALT...

... speaking of which, we have delineated ~60 paved parking spots for those not in a garage or carport. PARK BETWEEN THE LINES.

And speaking of cheap: SHOW SOME RESTRAINT w/ the paper towels and hot water!

Question about camping: I don't recall a lot of grassy areas in the paddock to pitch a tent. Is it ok to hike up maybe towards T11-12 after the track goes cold Saturday as long as I clear out by 7:00 or so Sunday morning?

Palmer Stickers

Post by xms651 » Thu May 31, 2018 5:25 pm

Hey all.

I just wanted to let people know that I made some small track shape stickers for Palmer and will have some extras on hand if that's your kinda thing.

I'll only be there Saturday. First come, first serve. I'm in a black 2003 VW GTI #651.

While we're talking hobbies, I mean besides the racecar one, I'll be bringing my 4K VR rig (camera, tripod, and battery/control box case) up to the track on Sunday. I'd like to plant it on 10 on drivers left (out of the way, I like my camera) to capture approach to 4/5, turn 10 and if I'm not mistaken there's an overlook to the paddock and front straight? Because it's a 360 camera, it will be capturing everything at once. It's wifi controlled so I won't have to be on the hot track to start and stop recordings.

I figure this could be a good way to market the club, and maybe the track? I'll just need to run it up there at lunch and pick it up when the track goes cold. That way I can capture some of the better TT run groups (including mine, hopefully). Anyone foresee a problem with this?

I don't see a problem with it. I'll check with Fred when I get to the track.

Did anyone pick up my bicycle that I left in front of garage 2?

My wife said I should have rode my bike during my TT when I told where I finished in Super D. :-(

Thank you
