  • Club Event this Spring / Summer at PGP Track

    Hi, Just throwing out the idea for all of you cone killers!!

    I've met the owner of the PGP track down by Pacific Raceways, and he is willing to let us into his facility to use it for a gathering, and to allow "limited" track time in our Minis. All of this at a minimal cost to club members!
    I'd like to propose that this Event be a Fundraiser for the Renewal of the Mini Q, and would really like to hear input from members of this board.
    ( Regulars, Lurkers, and non-lurkers alike )

    Go here for some basic data

    and then come back to this page and post your input.

    I'll be glad to be the "promoter" for this event, and will act as laisson to the owner. I'm looking forward to it.

    Best regards,
    All Together Now..... Everybody.......

    Sounds fun maybe at the end of summer...too many mini events in spring and early summer already...just my thought.

      I've always dreamed of taking my '63 to a track day at Pacific Raceways even if it does take me an eternity to finish the straightaway.
      The shorter PGP track sounds even better. What does "limited track time" mean?
      I will be there!

        I live just a few miles from PGP and I can't believe I've never visited the little track. I'll have to stop in one day and take a look.

        Consider my curiosity piqued, Mark. A Mini event there sounds like a lot of fun.

          Sounds like a great idea Mark! I really enjoyed the courtesy laps at last summer's Historics and this track is mini sized.

            Oooh Sounds like fun! And no whining that you cannot keep up with the car in front of you now!!

            They should pay us for bringing our Mini's out there so they can get pictures no their website;
            certainly would look better than the drifter clowns!

              Thanks for the interest! I'm psyched for it.

              They have quite the set up. Here's a partial list:
              Tables and Chairs
              and, last but not least, a very cool track!

              Now, I won't be able to make it to Grp 2 this sat, but will everyone please remember to promote this Mini Q renewal fundraiser at that meeting?

              I have to admit that I'm kind of torn about waiting until later in summer or fall, James. Perhaps we can find a day available?

              Talk to you all soon.

              Best regards,
