Topic: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

I didn't see one of these yet, which is surprising.

We're bringing the Dart. Who else is gonna be there?

Re: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

We'll be there as we look forward to this track every year.  I'd love to go when it's not cold as balls for once, but as long as it doesn't rain or snow, I'll try not to complain.  Road Atlanta was miserable!

We’re coming. Looking forward to getting back on the track.  The off-season sucks.

The Wonderment Consortium will be there, but we will be bringing the Saab this time! Maybe I will actually get to see the museum instead of doing an engine swap!

We ain't got no car ready to race yet, but me & Pig-Pen are gonna be there lookin' fer some kinda trouble to git into... errr,... I mean teams to help... :-)

(We got us some racin' gear too if'n y'all need sumbuddy to drive fer ya! )

Re: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

Bumble Bees will be there with the Civic. I think we need to just face up to the fact that the SouthEast is now a winter race series. The off season break is the summer. Putting the cool suit cooler in the car but also checking the heater, defroster, wipers and lights.

Overengineer'd Racing will be venturing further south than NJMP for the first time with our '79 BMW.  Diving from NH to AL and back in February, what could possibly go wrong!

A cool suit is just a fancy insulated hot water bottle.

Does anyone have an extra spot for Barber?   Like you taking less than 3 drivers to and you need someone to fill a seat.  I don't want to drive you car, just want the drivers wristband.

Re: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

Fireball racing will be there with the crappy yellow escort.  I think this is the 22nd race on this heap and it just keeps on ticking.

Re: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

Duff Beer will be there. Oddly enough, I will have no beer. I will bring the world's fastest racing Stag though. Maybe Robert will bring some beer.

Everybody grab your brooms, it's shenanigans!

Is anyone going to be bored enough on Saturday to give me a ride to the airport?

This is a travesty!  Have you been too long on the road to have beer?  I can crank out all three of our track standards in 14-days grain to glass (kegged).  Man the F up and bring them their Duff!

Have fun with the Stag.

We'll use a nyloc nut that isn't overtightened on the air cleaner this time.

Re: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

Projectile Dysfunction will be there with our MX-3. You know that MX-3 that was fast as hell at Road Atlanta?! We had the other one.

I echo whoever said Road Atlanta was miserable. However, I can ASSURE you that Barber's will be dry....because we've installed a grid defroster since our experience at Road Atlanta. And as we all know, once you figure out the solution to a problem, you'll pretty much never need to use it.
If nothing else, I'm looking forward to not loading all the race supplies and tools and sleeping in my truck. My house is 20 min away.

Yeah well, you suck!  wink

We are almost 9 hours away, but the worst part is going through Atlanta.  Seems like the only 'good' time is like 2:00 in the morning, and we typically make it to that point around 8:00am on Friday.  With the Super Bowl in town this year, traffic is bound to be even worse.

We're just hoping for a dry track!

Re: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

I am on the other side of Atlanta and a long tow to get home as well. Sunday evening going through Atlanta with the super bowl is a big concern. Staying in Alabama or getting away from Barber in time to transit Atlanta while the game is still in progress are the options for me.

Re: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

The member states of the WETTR Group present at Barber (which I think just makes us the ETT Group) are continuing our tradition of hosting a high-class cocktail party at the race.

WHERE: The lobby a of the Hampton Inn next to the track
WHEN: Friday night, call it 9 PM
WHY: Because it's silly and incongruous, just like everything else about Lemons

You should bring:
-The fanciest garb you feel like schlepping to the track
-Your own fancy drinking container
-Maybe some backup beer

You will receive:
-Fancy-ass cocktails
-The adulation of your peers
-Possibly getting yelled at by the hotel staff

Re: Barber 2019, The Who's Going Thread

Any one staying Sunday night?  Wondering if there is a get together to watch the super bowl after the race?  Not that I care about football, I just bring the field.

I'm going back to Columbia, SC, and I'm thinking about staying Sunday night and traveling in the morning, So I'm also wondering if anyone would be going that way Monday morning?

I wouldn't mind sticking around, but I don't have anywhere to stay Sunday night that I'm aware of.

Well, to be far to him, he has spent the past week in a rental minivan with Napoleon as his co pilot.
