Arrow Houston ///M Club Track Day: Saturday, July 23rd



MSR Houston
1 Performance Drive
Angleton, TX

Schedule:
Check in: 8:30 am at front office (including spectators)
Mandatory Safety Debrief: 8:50 pm
Track Goes Hot/First 30-min Session: 9:00 pm

Note: No tech paperwork needs to be submitted, but you should take your car to a qualified shop to ensure that it is in safe, operable condition for the race track.

Activities will include:
  • Open track
  • Thrill rides (I promise my car will be ready )
  • BBQ/drinks

Cost is $150 for six 30-min sessions. Rides are free.

Instructor is required for novice drivers.

As always, you don't have to own an M to attend. Everyone is welcome.

How close to the track can I get with a camera?

Will I be able to set up a video camera on a tripod and get some clips of each of you going around a corner?

Should be no problem. We can work out an arrangement for you.

I'm in!

I think... Michelle said something about talking about finances? That couldn't have any impact on Track Day.

Could it?

I also have a friend who's interested. He's a corvette guy, but we can do that, right?

This is the largest group so far......we have to get some good photos. I know Brian is bringing some camera gear and I thought I read somewhere that Frank also plans to attend. If this is the case we can cover the backside of the track as well.........Phil
