    Default Team Chicago track day Gratten Raceway

    On the schedule for April 7th, 2012, the first Saturday in April. You can get info and registration forms at the Team Chicago site. Someone with better computer skills than me would attach a link? Greg,(Sprink), and I were the only ones to show up last year, everyone that skipped it, well, that was your loss.

    This has been a long time running event. I did it years ago with my 9R and for ran out of gas on a lap. For that year I was known as out-of-Gas Man.

    Just realized you asked for this http://teamchicago.tv/home.htm Paul.

    Hope we have today's weather April 7th!

    For only $55 (after March 20, $75) you get some good instruction and time on the track.

    Everybody should bring their favorite ride and let the bonding begin.

    Well I'm working that weekend anyway. So I can't go to ride or to watch. If I was off I'd think about going just for pit support.

    To bad the rest of you lose. Greg,(Sprink), Joe,(NinjaJoe), and I had an incredible time at the track this past weekend. Weather was great and we were able to run extra laps as well. Joe was tearing them up big time while Greg and I impressed on our overweight underpowered Harleys. Yep, the racers could out run us down the straights, but we gave them fits in the corners! Half the horsepower and almost twice the weight will limit you to a great extent but the size of our grins put all others to shame. All in all a great fun filled weekend shared with friends on "Two Wheels"! Wish you all had been there. maybe a few more can sneak out this Friday and do the Port Dover Rally run?
