Topic: A&D available at Buttonwillow

We've got a slot or two available for Buttonwillow. It's the Porsche 924 that Spank lent an SU to for Inde.

It'll have fresh tires and a different engine, but I'm hoping it will still be in Class C.

Right now we are 3... driver strategy? Not so much. Running? That's the plan.

You: can drive stick and not break the car so badly it has to get fixed while the track is hot. If you live in nearby (to me) BFE and can show up to wrench, that's a bonus.

We'll be camping at the track with the "new" trailer, so there's probably room for you to sleep. It's got a fridge and stuff

Caveat: I don't promise to make this a dream come true and I might send you off on uncompensated wild goose chases for parts/fuel/beer.

Sound like your kind of party?
$600 covers your share of of the fees and getting the car to the track.

Not looking for a team, but just to let you know, me and a couple of my teammates have owned many 924s for the past 25 years or so, so if you want help wrenching or parts (have a ton of extra vw/924 junk) or anything like that, find us in the green/white Takata Honda Accord.  We've had mostly the older Audi engine ones, but also 944s and 951s.

I'll try and come by to say hi anyway!

Re: A&D available at Buttonwillow

Thanks for the offer!

This one did start life with an Audi engine... still has 4 bolt wheels and drums in the back.

For those potentially interested but not committed enough to say anything:

Wrenching ability isn't where we are lacking. Oh, you can cook? Good enough. I'll even teach you how to drive stick.

You have questions?  Email via the forum or post up.

Hi Duc,

Put me on your list.  Two pluses:  I can drive,  I'm dependable.

Are drivers suits/helmet provided or bring my own?

Thanks

Re: A&D available at Buttonwillow

This is a BYOG* operation.

We are at 4 right now.  If you're okay being the 5th wheel, you're in. Email me so I can invite you to the team (and include a little more about yourself).

That makes us full up!

*Bring Your Own Gear - although rented/borrowed from somebody else works for me, too.

Thanks for the offer.  I'll pass on this one.  Maybe next time.  Good luck.

Still looking for a driver?

Edit: two years of experience wrenching on / autoXing / tracking an E30.  I can cook camp food, and I'm pretty good at poker

Re: A&D available at Buttonwillow

Not for Buttonwillow 2017...

But I probably have a slot or two open at Inde 2018.

Re: A&D available at Buttonwillow

And a couple more seats throughout the year... but I live in the [mesquite] sticks with rattlesnakes... Unless the location in my "from" line sounds local to you, figure on buying a seat.

I plan to hit Inde, Buttonwillow, and MSR in 2018.
