    The Furstenau Financial Mgmt/Woodhouse Dodge Viper Rendezvous is already getting some folks from Colorado and the St. Louis area. This is the perfect event for laid back track time, good instruction, fun partying, and plenty of seat time if you want to run the Viper Days event in August.

    Always fun to go to an event with some knowledge over your competitors. Pretty fun when a competitor comes up and asks you about the course and you can say, " Oh , it is a tough old bird with alot of small nuances and technical tricks , but then I run here alot so I don't notice them." Heh, that could be you chatting with someone at Viper Days who has never been to Hastings.

    Seat time is truly the easiest edge one can have!!

    Hope to see you in June ( Motorsport Park Hastings MPH Road Course Race Car Driving School & Race Track Rental - Host a Corporate Event at Our Motorsports Country Club )

    Mark,

    Thanks for taking the lead on doing something in Des Moines. I'll try to stir up some support from the Quad Cities as well.

    I'll post it on IowaVipers.com - Friends, Horsepower & Corn as well.

    We really need this damn winter to just END!

    You're telling me!!! I actually had my blue Viper out on friday for a few hours. Took my wife to lunch. It was cool, like 40 degrees, but the streets were dry-ish. I have spring fever BAD!!! I really need more planning assistance if I can get it, mostly phone calls etc, and I will need a liason in the club who can make arrangements and get the word out. Any takers?? We're trying to keep the costs as low a possible and still cover the track day rental, and all that comes with it, and we also need to cover a lunch and BBQ, but I don't foresee the costs being over $200.00 for everything. That will cover the track for the entire day, a photo shoot (parade lap on the NASCAR oval) with free digital copy for all entrants, a BBQ at my house, show and shine at my shop (including news coverage) hanging out at the Fighter wing, (photo op with an F-16 fighter! and an event t-shirt. If have enough money left over we're hoping to include the cost of a lunch at the track or a dinner at a nice restaurant. It should be a fantastic three days to be sure! More to come, thanks VERY much for the interest! Mark
