I might not have been too clear on this. Brad owns Superbike Supply, he also owns www.1000rr.net
and a portion of 1000RR.com - he's also on this board occasionally. lexus rx is his screen name.
These November 18 & 19 trackdays are his show, his party, and his primary focus (not only focus, just his primary focus) is getting together folks from those boards. Getting 75 riders is a tall order and he knows that. He has been kind enough to allow me to spread the word here too and welcome us with open arms.
Brad's a great guy and a good personal friend and I'd never do anything that might steal his thunder.
That said, if we want to try a Wrist Twisters specific trackday(s) in 2007 I'm game for that. HOWEVER, before I reserve the track with Jennings management we will need enough commitments to cover the cost so we're at least at breakeven so I can write them a check. They'll still do business with me but I refuse to screw the track owner again by reserving a date that I can't cover.
For now, Brad's November event will have tons of great people and his plan includes some great extras like HBS bbq, vendors and other perks.
We also have a few friends among us who have experience booking bigger tracks like VIR, Barber, Laguna - we could get damn near any track you can imagine but some of the costs are HUGE and require enormous rider turnout. All in due time.
