GA Track Day

I got this e-mail from Kevin Ingold at MB of Buckhead about a track day in south GA for anyone interested.

Mercedes Performance Owners,

Ok, everyone has asked about it and now we have started to plan a track day. Here is what my Director and I have come up with.

We are tentatively looking at August 8-9 at Roebling Road Raceway outside of Savannah. The track will be closed for our use for both Saturday and Sunday. It will be staffed with safety workers and we will have driving instruction available. We will have a technical staff at the track for any minor issues that may arrive during the weekend. We think this could be a great event that will give you the opportunity to experience the true performance of the vehicles you own in a safe controlled environment as well as share your passion with fellow enthusiast.

It is our plan to make a weekend of this. We will look into a room block in Savannah and maybe a dinner Saturday night for the group. Depending on interest we will be able to get a better idea of pricing for the group. It will be limited to the number of registrants in order to make this a safe fun weekend so it will be first come first serve once we have all the details out. We are estimating $500-$600 per entrant.

Please let me know what the interest is out there so we can get the ball rolling!

Update on Track Day

I WANTED TO UPDATE EVERY ONE ON TRACK DAY !!

We are scheduled Aug 8-9, 2009 , it will be on their schedule this week end.

We will also have block rates at the Hilton in Savanna,

Roland Linder will be an instructor( Formal Ferrari factory driver ) and Scott Preacher will be finding another. You can see Roland on you tube and google him.

My director will providing a dinner at the Hilton that night with open bar!

We are also working with Toyo on group rate on race tires and I will getting some of those packages ready. If any one needs some take off factory wheels let me know. I will be keeping them as they come off cars that we can use for the track. You can use/have them free as long as you get Toyo racing tires with us.

We will also transport all race tires and wheels there at nc. We will be providing factory tech back up, brakes, etc and mounting tires, etc

Vehicles will have to meet inspection which we will do free .

Everything is coming together and when we are ready for registration I will put that up.

I'm sure you've heard about it already but there is a thread on the AMG PL about a private track day. Is i the same event?

If not you may be able to get some additional seat time.

Thread starts with "Drivers wanted"
