    Track Day

    Ok, its almost official-

    We are having a track day at PMI for our customers and and friends in the community. Here are some answers, more to follow:

    Who can come? Basically anyone with interest, the track fee, and a SAFE car. You dont have to have track experience, but you do need to have a good attitude and play well with others out on the track.

    When: this is a little up in the air, but March 14th or 16th are looking good. Yes these are weekdays- plan your vaction time wisely.

    What car can play? ANY car can come play, provided it will pass a basic tech inspection. So far we have a few EVOs, a couple of Supras, some DSMs, and maybe a spec Miata or two.

    What will it cost me? 60 for the half day, 100 for the full day. Price may change a bit(go down) depending on how many people actually show up. We(the shop and organizers) are not making any money on this deal, and by closing for the day actually lose a days work, however, we all enjoy this and that makes it worthwhile. Its a toss up right now as to whether or not we will be providing lunch, plan on not for the time being.

    How do I get the invite? PM me or call the shop. Your name will not be put on the list however until we have a deposit in hand. If you want to go and are not sure you cant get the day off, wont have the cash, whatever- we will try and work with you as best we can. Any last-minute entries will be considered on a per-case basis, so do not count on dropping by day off and getting a slot.

    What format are we running? We are setting up to run both drag race and road race sessions. You do not have to do both, just take a break and hydrate. The drag racing will be street race style, no lights, just a flagger.
    Road race session will be HPDE style, no passing unless signaled, slower cars might be grouped together, there will be NO BS tolerated. This is not an event to show your mad skillz, it is an event to have some fun and play with your car. If your car breaks and/or you have problems we will do the best we can to assist you, but be aware we are not bringing a spare parts truck or pit cart. Bring whatever spares you feel are nec or you might need. We will have engine oil, coolant, etc on hand.

    Lastly, if you have any questions or suggestions feel free to comment or contact me via phone or email.

    Sorry for the delay- heres the latest info:

    The track day will be on March 14th. We are leaving the shop at about 730 AM that morning. If you are in CO Springs and want to meet up and caravan down, let us know and we can make arrangements for a common meet-up.

    The rates once again are: 60 for the half day, 100 for the entire day. We will be bringing basic tools and supplies, bring whatever you feel you might need for your your individual car.

    Cars WILL be inspected before they hit the track. Things we will be looking for:

    Wheels torqued
    Tires in good condition
    loose wheel bearings/hubs
    brake pedal firm
    brake rotor wear
    brake fluid level
    battery tied down properly
    Steering slop


    Its your car, so we are only checking for basic things. It is up to you to ensure your car is track-worthy. Check your fluid levels often, along with tires and brakes.

    There is a chance we will be providing lunch as well, but at this time dont count on it.
