    HPR Open Lapping October 8/9

    Hello Race Fans!

    It's my pleasure to announce that time has come available for **WEEKEND** Open Lapping at High Plains Raceway on October 8th and 9th.

    Saturday, October 8th will be Cars Only
    Sunday, October 9th will be Motorcycles Only
    (The previously scheduled Motorcycles Only day on Friday, October 7th has been canceled)

    There's another special twist to these days - participants will have the opportunity to run on THREE DIFFERENT track configurations in the same day! Here's how the schedule will run for both days:

    8am - 10am: Full Course
    10am - 12pm: West Course
    Lunch
    1pm - 3pm: North Course
    3pm - 5pm: Full Course

    Signing up ahead of time via the HPR website HERE still saves $10 compared to paying at the track so get signed up early and we'll see you at the track!

    Looked at the HPR website and couldn't really figure it out

    Could you describe what the North and West Courses are?

    Thanks

    So I have to ask

    Why would we want to run a short track? IMO T4 through T12 are the best part of the track and I can't understand why we would want to eliminate a portion of that.

    Help me understand the reasoning............

    Thanks

    Because variety is the spice of life, Joe. Some people don't want the same thing every time and since these days won't be "test days" for any particular club, why not experience the other configurations?

    FWIW, I think the north course is a blast, it totally changes the character of turns 9a and 9b.

    The west course totally changes the corkscrew as well.

    Why do the cars run the day before the bikes?

    Can we have a vote either before or at the riders meeting? I'd like to be there but would rather focus on my riding than learning new lines every other session.

    I agree. It would be nice to just run the full course on Sunday.

    Can we have a vote prior?

    Thanks

    Sorry, no voting. This type of day has been requested in the past and I've always said no because I didn't want to effect people practicing for the race weekend. It's been advertised this way and will not be changed.
