    Default «OFFICIAL» NYSpeed Summer Meet: LETCHWORTH, Sun Sep 16th 2012

    The meet is now going to happen at Letchworth State Park on Sunday September 16th at 1pm!

    We're not planning on having food or drinks there for you, so this is BRING YOUR OWN unless Mike (tpgsr) decides to cook.

    We're also not renting a shelter (the weather outlook looks dry) BUT we'll be meeting near the same shelter as we have in the past; the Middle Falls shelter.

    Since every year people seem to get lost in the park, make sure you enter the park at the PORTAGEVILLE entrance and drive to the MIDDLE FALLS area as shown in this picture:



    Pictures from the last time we were there are here: http://www.nyspeed.com/showthread.ph...f-the-year-BBQ











    Cruise INFO:

    This is a modified route from our trip in 2010 and I've removed any unpaved sections.

    If you want to head straight to Letchworth this route isn't for you. Yes, we're going quite a ways out of the way. And Yes, it's going to be long.

    We're going to do things a bit different this time but we're not doing this with the intent to drive like assholes on unfamiliar twisty roads. Rather we're going to take a tour of the area using roads-less-traveled. And it's not going to be for everyone (obviously) but for those who are looking for a fun driving experience in addition to the meet.

    Route Link: http://goo.gl/maps/UIXCQ



    Some points explained:

    A) This is where we'll be meeting up and meeting at 8:30am Sunday morning - Garden Place Hotel - Since it's right near the highway, it's a central location and easy to find because it's obnoxious:



    B) The first part of our route will take us to a convenient store & gas station so that people can fill up, grab snacks, etc. before we start off on the backroads sections. Rochester people, meet us here at 10:30am!



    C) to H) These way points maximize the fun roads. Hitting them will depend on time, people's gas levels, etc. and there are several points we can eliminate to adjust the route as necessary. It's also important to note that I've pulled out the hard, unpaved roads which will make up a lot of time. And we won't get stuck in traffic during the Naples Grape Festival (we're doing this cruise the week before) and that will also make up A LOT of time!

    I) This is our BBQ location in Letchworth State Park.

    Exclamation «OFFICIAL» NYSpeed Summer Meet: LETCHWORTH, Sunday, September 16th

    OLD THREAD INFO FOR ARCHIVE PURPOSES ONLY


    Date: Sunday, ??? 2012
    Time: Noon to 6pm
    Location: Dunntire Raceway Park (Lancaster Motorsports Park)
    Cost: $25 per person for UNLIMITED FOOD / DRINKS / BEER (only 20 spaces available!), $60 per person for 5 hours of LAPPING ($85 to eat, drink & lap the track) FREE to hang out and watch!
    Menu: All you can eat (Between 2pm and 4pm ONLY) Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Italian Sausage, Macaroni or Potato Salad, Soda, Bottled Water & Beer.

    There are ONLY 20 UNLIMITED FOOD / BEER / DRINK SPACES AVAILABLE! so if you're interested, sign up ASAP!

    ... Otherwise you're stuck paying race track prices for beer! There will be NO unlimited food deals to purchase on the day of the event!

    Note to the Canadian guys: the drinking age in NY is 21. Also, all prices are in USD.

    Those drinking beer will NOT be allowed on the oval with their cars.

    We have use of their covered pavilion in case of rain!

    Lapping will be on the oval (course below) and we will have EMTs. Also, Dunntire has large foam blocks instead of cement for barriers.

    Drivers meeting will be at 11:30am so that we can get on track right away at noon! And note that we're reserving 1 hour of track time for MAYHEM which we will define later...

    Those who are lapping, we're going to use the same handbook that we used for Dunnville back-in-the-day. Click this link to view it: http://www.onyxsyndicate.com/trackdayhandbook.pdf - Obviously the start times & other Dunnville specific things are irrelevant but the meat of what's there still applies.

    And to encourage the slackers to sign up early online, lapping will be $80 after ??? up to the day of the event. And if you're falling into slacker mode with signing up, if you fall into slacker mode and miss the drivers meeting you'll be stuck waiting until one of us has the time to brief you. These means less time on track!

    Lapping Layout:



    To register, click the 'Marketplace' tab on the bar below the website logo and add the food portion, drifting portion or BOTH to your cart.

    If you want to eat, drink and lap, you must register and pay for BOTH the lapping portion and food portion individually! ($85 Total) You'll see you name on both the FOOD PAID and LAPPING PAID lists below if you're signed up to eat & lap;

    PAID LIST FOR UNLIMITED FOOD / BEER / DRINKS:


    PAID LIST FOR LAPPING:


    For the Canadian guys who want to map out the distance:

    Lancaster was cool last year but the weather def. wasn't the greatest. I think that had an effect. Driftimg was definitely fun to watch just needed a couple more cars. Still up for the tandem drift?

    If by tandem drift you mean crash-o-ramma, then I'm sure we'd get a lot of people out there to watch, lol.

    Any chance Lancaster would open the 1/8th mile?

    No chance that we'd rent it for the day. There are already plenty of opportunities to race on the 1/8th mile track throughout the summer that cost less than it would if we rented it.

    I don't think Lancaster would be that bad:



    Holland would be better:

    Wheel to Wheel: Nelson Ledges x6, Gingerman x2, Summit Point Shenandoah x 2, Stafford x1,
    BeaveRun x2, NJMP Lightning x1,NJMP Thunderbolt x1, New Hampshire Motor Speedway x1
    Track Days: are forgettable.

    That's exactly what I was thinking Jeremy. The transitions from the large to the small oval are a little off-camber, but nothing that would really stop us from doing it that way. We looked into using portions of the drag strip and it could be done & would be much more fun, but safety wise we could only run one car. What I'd like to do is set things up just like we did at Dunnville where people could go on and off as they wanted throughout the day. People could sit in the stands and watch. With a limit of X number of cars on at a time of course.

    Holland is just too small IMO.

    I'd definitely hit the track, but I'm down to just hang out too.

    Drag racing isn't going to happen guys. We'll have a drag racing day at some point this summer but it won't be at Lancaster.

    whatever we do it has to have something crazy enough included to warrant a 50page thread started by someone that thinks everyone on earth will die because of it.
