Default Bluegrass Motorsports Park -- 4/13/09

Looks like they might be canceling the 10/10ths event due to the track not being ready. Just received an email from Bill Neal that they will make a decision on 3/27. Looks like if they cancel I'll be signing up for the PCA event at the end of the month.

Just a heads up in case someone is planning to go and didn't see the email.

Wow that is not good news. I got an email today from Bluegrass because our Region is doing a DE in Oct and they listed the schedule and did not say anything about a delay??. If you are going to sign up for bluegrass I would not wait to much longer. I am instructing they were at like 96 students 10 days ago and I know they are closing it at 120. Keep me posted if they close 10/10ths. I sent an email to the track to find out status of facilities like paving in paddock and so on. No reply as of yet.

Let me know what they say about the status. I'm going to wait until I hear anything before signing up for anything else in April. Will update the thread when I hear something.

I noticed the schedule they mailed out has an asterisk above all the April dates. I talked to the CIRPCA guys they are pretty confident they are going to be ok. The email was talking about the process they are going through, they are using tires to create soft barriers and apparently there is some rule them must be NEW tires. So they have the tire MFG's giving them rejected new tires. They are in the process of installing them. don't know if that is the delay or what.

I'm going to do the DE at Putnam park on the 11-12th. That might be an option for you if they cancel 10/10ths on the 13th.

I was planning on it but I have a customer in town until Monday so it was quickly ruled out. Have fun though -- at least it won't be snowing like it was last year! I haven't heard from 10/10ths, going to send them an email to find out if they came to any conclusion on the 13th.
