I know I'm hitting Putnam at the end of the season (8/25, I think) with STT. I've also got another day planned for Autobahn (8/4, I think), which is my pref.

Haven't been to Grattan, but its on the list for next year. If I don't hit Grattan, I'll be doing Road America.

EDIT: BF hasn't been one of my favs just because it feels so enclosed. Width, tress? :dunno: And IIRC the surface was pretty rough, but its been quite a few years since I've been. Anybody know when it was last resurfaced?
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

Going to Autobahn but haven't decided which day yet. Sep1 is north course, Sep2 is south course and Sep3 is the full course. I can only do one and can't decide between south or full course.

They resurfaced turns 1 & 7 a couple weeks ago. I went to auto bahn a couple weeks ago wasn't impressed with it or stt (well there were some sick cars. Saw a McLaren chasing a Ferrari.)but there wasn't any notice about when my group was on the track I felt hurried and rushed every session, was also told my daughter couldn't ride her bike and had to stay in the grass by my truck. My girl was pissed she couldn't really see me ride or take pics. I wasn't impressed. I like Blackhawk s uniqueness the trees and stuff are awesome reference points the people have been cool as hell even have a couple fellow msf instructors running around for me to b.s. with. When my trailer broke down one time on the way they compted me a day and had me signed up for the next 1 before I even asked about it I can't say enough good things about motovid and bhf and if you call the milwaukee Ducati dealer and order your track day through them it's only 160. Ill be at bhf on the weekend of the fIrst. Jos Is puttIng on a thIng wIth a cookout and contests and stuff for my daughter from what Ive heard. But my fav track so far is def v.I.r. which I just spent 2 wonderful days on the north course finishing up the lvls for california superbike school.
But there's still a lot of tracks I want to ride yet so I'm sure a new favorite will pop up.

My new suit will be here tomorrow :banana-dance:

Hoping to get in 1 or 2 BHF days before the season dies on me. It might be a little tight, since there are only three days left on their schedule for this year. :lol: Just gotta get the time off work and see what happens.

Signed up for Blackhawk Farms, 9/26 and 10/10. Now I just hope they don't cancel either of those like they did this Wednesday's event.

Great day at Blackhawk today. Weather started out a little bit cool, but it turned into an absolutely gorgeous day. Lots of traffic on track in my group, though. It was pretty tough to get clear enough track to be able to push for a whole lap. I still have some rust left to knock off from three years' track absence, but I feel pretty good about how today went regardless.

Photos forthcoming, once I get the CD from the photographer. Hopefully soon. :)

What group did you ride in? I saw some pics on facebook of a lowside you could see he didn't let go of the front brake and that didn't work out for him. But it said it was intermediate but he had a yellow sticker all the times I've been that was novice. Glad to here it was a good time though.
