Road Atlanta AMA race April 3-5. Who's going?

My girl and her 8yo twin girls are planning on infield camping for the Sat and Sun races. Since we're bringing the girls, we'll cage it down and possibly bring golf cart for cruising at the track. I'd love to meet up with other V owners while we're there.

Who's planning it? I believe Don (hacktracker here) is coming and bringing his 7 year old boy. Jenny and I came down on the bikes for last August's race and had a blast!

best,
/neil

I am probably going to be there both days. Close enough to home that I can make the trip each day.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

I will be there Sunday. I'll take a ride around and keep my eyes peeled for the really cool people.

It was a great day and great ride. Hated seeing a rider and bike plow into the wall after missing turn 12 but read this on the Road Atlanta News web site so it's nice to hear he wasn't seriously hurt, as it looked and sounded wicked.

"Dylon Husband (No. 73 Team Pur Sang Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R) were each transferred to the Road Atlanta medical center where they were examined and released after separate incidents. Husband went off course at full racing speed at Turn 12 but the Air Fence placed at that high-impact location prevented a serious incident."

He hit one airfence and his bike hit the other. His bike punctured the airfence. I bet he is sore today!!!

I saw two red V's parked up on Spectator Hill Saturday. I was ogling the one with the painted matched gray plastic bits. Gotta do that to mine. I wanted to sit on the one with the Corbin but hadn't had enough beers yet to be that bold. Saw another red V on Sunday parked down by vendor village. No windshield on that one...

Terrific weekend. Only 5 minutes or so of rain this afternoon. Mladin rode away with it again today. We camped both nights at turn 3. Some good wrecks over there! I'll put some pictures up in a day or so.

That was us. We watch the first race from the hill and then made the rounds. We got over to turn 10 for a while (saw that crash) and then wandered over to watch them come under the bridge and saw Husband crash into the wall. It was good to see them get up, but those boys had to be hurting Sunday.

That was me. Waiting on my shield from Mike. Lots of crashes in turn 6, 7 area that day. Everybody walked away fortunately.
