Default Re: PROVING GROUNDS!! 2013.1!

When i googled it, it came up with the 2010 rules. It stated that all classes were 2 rotor, 4 cyl, and 6 cyl classes. All others exotics, swaped cars would be put in the bracket racing classes. Then i read the 2012 info and it still said something about exotics runing in the bracket classes only but nothing about swapped cars. I was assuming the swapped cars would still fall in that catagory. However, i would like to be wrong on this one.

I can always ask Dan about it and see what he says.

Here's what he said.

"We haven't set up classing / rules yet. Ideally one of the 2 PG's will allow for domestics to drag race BUT I need to try and dial in some classes that are fair for import vs domestics heads up"

I wouldn't mind going to this event. I know last year they had a triple event that was road course, auto x and drag which is what I like to do since my car does well across the board. I'm guessing there are hotels in the area also to stay at if someone doesn't want to stay at the track? Any payouts for winning?

I'm friends with the guy who runs the event which is Dan, and I already asked him about it. They are going to have two proving ground's events this year and he's thinking for one of them he will allow domestics and domestic swaps to drag in normal setups, but isn't sure yet.

I got a hotel that was about 2-3 miles away from the track for $80 a night. Included complementary breakfast too, not just any breakfast either. I'm talking restaurant style breakfast where you ordered what you wanted off a menu and they made it. Definitely staying there again.

sounds like closer to time i might hit you up about details, i will say this camping their did have its drawbacks as its impossible to sleep cus it is a party people are up late very late at night screaming, and also there was a car that drove through with no exhaust at like 4 a.m. and woke everyone up, if your going to spectate then id say the camping would be fine, but if your going to race/drift id defintly reccomend getting a hotel,

I don't think I would have minded camping, well minus that civic that everyone was talking about driving up and down the place revving to 9k for no apparent reason.

Here's what you need to do, get a van, sleep in the van, have earplugs in and wear a pair of ear muffs, also wrap the inside of the van with dynomat. That should help you sleep without noise problems.
