HOUSTON MSR track, Saturday, June 25
ATTENTION: Houston area GTRs and 350z friends, 370z friends, older Zs and 1 misguided MB AMG:
This Saturday, June 25, we will be heading to the track at MSR Houston (the Houston side of Angleton off Highway 288). Several GTR owners will be running the course and the rest of us will there in support and to get a feeling for the facilities for a future GTR weekend which is in development.
No admission charge, but each car will have to sign a waiver before entering.
They have a go-cart track facility which we can use from 9:45 - 10:30 ($20 charge). MSR Houstonís Karting Track is 0.7 miles (1.2 kilometers) long 26 feet (8 meters) wide with 17 turns. It is configured to run both clockwise and counter-clockwise. In addition, the track can be split to run two independent 0.375-mile (0.6-kilometer) loops. It features a progressively-banked NASCAR-style corner, a 0.25-mile (0.4-kilometer) straightaway with a high-speed chicane and CIK recommended runoff areas. There is a 6,600 square foot kart building with 1,800 square feet of hospitality area. The facilityís rental kart fleet includes: 12 CRG Spitfire concession karts, 4 Top Kart kid karts, 3 World Formula Karts, 3 Rotax CRG Road Rebels.
DRIVERS EDGE school has invited us to step into one of their class room sessions (optional) to see how their driving school can assist in learning safe performance. A generous offer by DE.
At 12:15 we will be allowed onto the track for several laps. We will be following a pace car.
We will be going as a group, leaving the HEB parking lot 9am Saturday morning. Located on the southbound service road of 288 exit FM518. The 518 exit is just past Beltway 8. Those coming from the west side of Houston or east side on Beltway 8 take the 288 south exit and exit almost immediately at 518. HEB food market is on the right.
Let me know if you are going to join us there so I can be on the look-out for everyone. It will be easier to get in if we go as a group.
If up can't make the meet-up at HEB, the address of the track is: http://maps.google.com/maps/place?q=...40253786689265
Please advise of your participation by responding to this thread or a PM to me. IMPORTANT!
