OMG! FlatironsTuning Track Days.
 
More info here


8/16 First session will be a driving school day which is a lot of fun. There is only 50 spots though.
Cost $50 <--- Cheap!

9/27 Second session will be a track day only. There is 100 spots for this one.
Cost: $50 <---Cheap!


I have signed up for the first session and am not sure if I will be in town for the second one but am getting that sorted out.

The first 50 spots will go quick hurry up and register

I believe a helmet is still required.

Wow that is a pretty sweet deal it seems... Its too far out for me to be able to plan around it and im sure itll fill up before the months out.

I can help you out. What do you have to install?

lol I dunno yet! i'm still trying to plan out a good set-up that isn't overkill. I have the brakes pretty much finished minus rear rotors which will be on before august... for suspension probablly will go with HD & swifts but am still worried about the roads around here with suspension - maybe week or two of more research then I will place an order on something! :) I plan on staying stage I for a little bit more, if I can convince myself to be frugal, maybe stage II in the summer.. but thanks for the offer - i will def hit you up if people aren't interested in learning how to do this for an install day (me being one of them!)

Just signed up for the first day. Should be fun. I might need to upgrade from my stock tires before then.

Also signed up for Driving School day ... Still not sure if I'll do the track day ... but I'll think on that a couple days.

Where after I will probably sign up for that too :lol:

I've walked on part of the track (on accident - I'll explain below) and it didn't strike me as a fast track. It's easy to find on Google Earth if you can locate the mesas in Golden (its on the south mesa).

So, my sister and her husband moved out here in August of '05. They live in an apartment right against the south mesa. I drove out with Mom and Dad to help her move - Dad and I drove the moving truck, she shared driving in her car with Mom. So the morning after we moved all her stuff in the apartment, I got up early and went for a walk and headed up the mesa. I walked around up there and stumbled across the State Patrol track up there and wondered what it was for almost 2 years until I saw something last summer about one of the track days up there.

I'm totally looking forward to this - it should be a really good time. :)

Here is a picture of the track I scanned in from last time. As you come around turn 1 (sweeper curve) I was going 105 but then backed it down as there is a rise there where you can get some air.

We went counter clockwise the last time. You park in between turns 8 and 9.

Oh BTW did I mention the track has a fresh top on it also? :cool:

This is gonna be freakin' sweet! :)

I doubt I'll do the track day, never really planned on tracking my car. this should be a great learning experience for us who never tracked before!

I found a vdeo on youtube, I am pretty sure this is the track we will be driving on. Check it out:
