$35 is dirt cheap for a track day.
The State Patrol Track is actually a pretty fast track and not very technical, good for beginers. There are only 3 corners and a chicane. You can get up to 100 MPH on the back straight if you have enough faith in your brakes and tires for the fast left hander at the end.

If I am in country I will do this. I need to get my brakes and tires upgraded ;)
Directly from the site:
6-2-2007 Flatirons Tuning Subaru Track Day!
If you made it to our first meet, well, you know all about this. But if you missed, let me bring you up to speed.

Simply put, we wanted to give everyone with a Subaru the chance to take it out to a track, have a lot of fun, and see what their cars can do. So with out further ado…

Flatirons Tuning will be hosting a Subaru track day June 2nd this year at the Colorado State Patrol track in Golden, Colorado. Michael Pettiford of Go 4 It Racing along with a few of his instructors will be helping us organize the event, and will be available to give some tips, etc. We will most likely have a few other special guests, and I will post more about that as I get more information.

We will also be hosting a Meet/Tech inspection the day before the track day, Friday, June 1st, either at Flatirons Subaru, or at the Flatirons Auto Center. This is just so we can take a quick look over your car to make sure that you have good tires, and brakes, and aren’t leaking any fluids, etc. And this will give everyone a chance to meet each other, and we can go over some of the details for the next day.

There will also be a non-refundable $35 fee to reserve your spot, and a short registration form that will need to be completed. We won’t be collecting these yet, and I will post more details when we have them.

We won’t be keeping track of your times, and there won’t be any prizes for “First Place”. This will be an opportunity for you to take your car out on a track, and see what it is capable of, and get some professional instruction if you are interested. To make sure that everyone gets plenty of track time, we are going to limit to the field to 50 Subaru’s.

At this time, we want to keep it to a Subaru only field, but I will let everyone know if that changes.

Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions, and check back to this first post often, as I will be constantly up-dating it as we have more information.

If you are interested in some one-on-one instruction, Michael Pettiford will also be doing some smaller classes at this track on March 4th, and April 8th. You can contact Go 4 It Services at 303-666-4113 for more details.

I will probably use my Hankook RS2s, but I will pick up a pair of Race Pads so I don't eat up my SS-Ms too much :D

subscribed.. I may drive out for this one! At the least, I wouldnt mind just flying out to co-drive with someone.. hell, I'll even bring a set of track pads for anyone who wants to co-drive with me ;)

praedet 02-09-2007 12:29 PM

let me know, so I can get a set of Carbotech XP16s and XP10s for your car and I'll book my plane ticket and pack up my typical track gear with me for the trip. once it's all done, you can pick me up at the airport on Friday night. I hope you got some Motul RBF600 at the least ;)

Im sure there are many other hands-on instructors to learn from as well and who has way more experience than I do.. I think that's what the website said about having instructors there anyways.

Even for me, I may just have someone to ride with me just to give me pointers as well.. you can always learn more from someone else that has a LOT more experience.

I just want to try driving a different track and improve on my application of line-theory.

bump, Praedet I sent you a PM.

praedet 02-11-2007 09:47 AM

Cool, I'll let you know!

enthusiast 02-11-2007 02:09 PM

Xenonk and Praedet if you guys do that I will definately go and buy a set of pads and some Motul for my car if I can get some help putting them on.

What other kinds of gear would I need (Xenonk)?

1. Helmet
2. ...

praedet 02-11-2007 02:26 PM

I am 95% sure I am in unless I am not one of the 50 cars they are allowing...

I think Keefe (Xenonk) will be there too...

Pads, fluid...

What tires do you have? I don't know about helmets yet. I got rid of mine 2 years ago, so I will have to get one too if they don't have them.
