    Going back again! This time NORC the third week in may, 2017. Last fall we placed third in the 135 MPH class so we are trying 145 this time 'round. For all you Walter Mitty's out there that daydream your lives away the time has come to get off your backside and do what my Grandfather told me: Study like you'll live forever and live like you will die tomorrow. Let's see a few more forum guys and ladies out for the best time you can have in a car!

    Can a couple of us enter this race at the last minute kind of a thing (2 cars)? Do you need a navigator or just run it alone for the sake of driving as fast as your entry class will allow and not really trying to win but just the experience of the race and the people you will meet? Can a rookie enter any speed class he wants or are we restricted to a certain top end because we haven't done it before? Just curious. sounds like a blast.

    Anybody can enter up to the week before the event. You won't need a nav but you will be stuck in 'Touring'; 5 classes 5 mph apart between 95-115 mph with a max speed on the course of 124 MPH. The state of Nevada rents the road to the LLC hosting the event BUT they maintain legal jurisdiction over the highway during the event. There are radar traps manned by the highway patrol spread along the course and they make sure that really bad things happen to people who disregard their tech speed. This event lasts 4 days; you will meet some VERY interesting people and have a great time. Attached is the new rulebook. Read the parts on safety equipment and especially Page 8 item 2. That's the part about what happens when you bust tech. Try to imagine going to traffic court for a speeding ticket at a speed that exceeds twice the posted speed limit!
