Wish I could make it but this is the 2nd most busy weekend of the year for my business! I really need that practice time! Those Monday events are great for me since thats my "day off".

The 11th of June looks good for me, but is that during "bike week" in nearby Laconia? If so I may not make that either as my wife is coming and she is not a camper. I expect the Red Roof is full up, but I will call them right now.

As I thought, no room at the Inn--I didn't realize it was bike week.

Anyone know of other decent motels or B&B's, with trailer parking, in the area (within a half hour of so)?

I've got some work to do, but I'll be there. Looks like playing corner-worker might be a good way to spend Saturday afternoon.

it's still too early, but at least the forecast is best for sunday. but yeah, might as well be a one day schedule. i was really looking forward to having my races spread out a bit to give me time to unlater my bike. should we just grid up race-style for saturday morning practice...and where's sunday practice? kinda sucks to have the first laps of the day at race pace in race #1 at 8:30.

maybe some things will get sorted, but it looks like saturday will be good for drinkin'.

There was some talk about a one-hour practice Sunday...but who knows! Looks like I will have to bring an extra case of beer for Saturday afternoon. Party at Wankercentral near T2 campsite starts early. The races on Sunday are so close together it is going to be like an enduro..! Hope me and the wankermobile survive!

Hey,
At least by Sunday it will be pretty evident who's oiling the track and where the slick spots are! Crashing sucks due to oil on the track. Turn 2 got the best of me me last year on Saturday's Eurocup.
Pass the flag, I'm corner working too.

The last three times I crashed (not including my big one) were at the VC. Dunno if it was because of the cars, but I think they were all in T2.

I'll be up Friday evening, but won't be racing.

Matt, I'll look around for another brake MC for that RD. Been meaning to send one, but I'm lazy.

I HAVEN'T TOUCHED THE RD. I have been so busy with the two kid situation that I really havn't had time for anything, I did build a rear fender ( actual rd race fender) I do plan on building a new seat for it. At least that way if youu get pissed and take it back ... you get updated parts.

how about the saturday races switch to finish the day on sunday (sidecar heat/final excepted) with a 125 shootout finale.. the saturday races are most peoples second tier/bump races best done at the end of the event. this can still be fixed...it's only monday.

I think I've crashed at every single Vintage Celebration I ever ran....at least twice in T2.

AHRMA or WERA could pick up a 100 members if they ran a race in New England somewhere. There are so many people dying to do some real motorcycle racing for whole weekends. Somebody has got to put a bug in the ear of AHRMA or WERA to find some track time up here. Hell...VRRA has adopted AHRMA rules and classes now...they'd come down in droves.

Hey...what's everyone bitchin about....if you try real hard you could probably squeeze in about 4 hours of potential track time in 3 days :)
