Just did Jennings last weekend - would be great to ride with some other 675's. Will see what I can do. Is it a Jennings GP event or another organization?

Bleakster and I may be coming up on the 19th...Should we preregister or can we pay Friday the 18th at the track?

Does the track open Friday afternoon for those camping out?

Depends on availability. I have gone at least three without pre paying and they had plenty of spots. That was usually on a Monday though. Weekends are pretty busy at Jennings. You can either pay day of, or for weekends you have to prepay by noon on Friday.

I've never ridden there, but I am looking forward to it...

I run advanced pace/class at our other Florida tracks but figured I would start in intermediate to learn the track....What are your guys thoughts?

I think for their own track days you need to run like 28's to be in "advanced" group. 28's around there are reasonably quick but not blistering.
Never hurts to learn the track in a slower group and then pick up the pace.

Thanks for the thoughts...

Buddies whom I ride with that have ridden there state that my pace should be in the 1:25 area based on my other track lap times...But again I wanna learn the lines before I start to push....:whistle:

I guess we'll see how things go, but I'm still stoked to check out another track!

What other Florida tracks you riding? When I left Florida 2 years ago Jennings was about the only track that was doing track days in the state.

Homestead and Palm Beach Int. If your camping out bring a small space heater that their weak electrical outlets can handle. I was there in March a couple of years ago a frosted me arse off.

Yep you got it Scotty...PBIR and Homestead...

Thanks for the heads up on the heater, but I'll be pulling a full load and won't really have room....Does Jennings allow campfires in a specified area? Just curious....I guess I could sleep in my 1 piece!!!:laugh:

I don't think they allow fires. At least I've never seen anyone doing it. The time I was there in March I wanted to burn anything to stay warm. I got a small space heater, the size of a toaster, from Big Lots that works well.

You want to careful, their Track Days fill up pretty quick, if you leave it too late they might be full.
