well.......after taking a year off from Vday I all of a sudden started thinking about it again. IF it were to happen this year it would be no earlier than September and at Summit Point (WV). for those of you who are new the the V world V-day is a track day predominately made up of Cadillacs. all levels of experience is welcome, we have classroom time and in car instructors. usually there is some involvement from Cadillac. usually there is a special guest or 2 (Andy Pilgrim has been too 2-3 Vdays). usually have anywhere from 30-60 V's signed up for the track and a handfull of guys just show up to hang out. cost is usally in the are of $250.00 for the event plus your hotel room, etc. like I said just throwing it out there to see whos interested, dont even have a date yet.....leave a post so I can decide if Vday will return

If you've ever been to a V Day, you'll always want to go to another one.

They're outstanding!

If you talk nicely to Luke, Maybe he will let you in!

I'd be in, Luke. I've got an instructor friend that would probably be interested, too.

And JimmyH, the last VDay was shortly after I blew the engine in my V, so I was rockin' my Subaru. I'm sure everyone would cut the "Super Moderator" some slack if he showed up in a non-V. :)

If only I didn't live in Wisconsin sometimes. Luke, wish there was somebody at a dealer up here that was as involved in the V community!

I was thinking about that actually. It would be cool to see a few V's running down the freeway at the same time.

If my schedule permits, I'd be down. I would need to speed up my motor build though. :yup:

I was going to try to make NASA Nationals this year in September, so I don't think I could pull off a cross country journey the same month. Would love to go though.

Are you casting a block in your garage? Lol. It's going to be no earlier than September. I haven't purchased a single part yet for a completely new setup from the ground up.

I may be in for spectating/showing the car. I'm assuming this is a weekend event? 1 day or 2 days?

I posted about this over in the CTS-V forum on LS1tech, since I know there are some folks on that forum that don't visit this forum often (or not at all).

The previous events have all just been a single day. I honestly can't remember what day of the week they were held.

sooo just talked to Summit Point and the only days when I want to possibly hold Vday6 are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, etc. (in September). since I am the only one getting paid to be there does that deter anybody from coming? I know the hardcore guys (you know who you are...) are there no matter what day but how about the newcomers?

Not the best days but I would prefer Tuesday probably.

JDB

I would suggest not the first weeks of Sept since people might take long weekends or the week off around Labor Day. I am. 3rd & 4th weeks will be cooler too.

Why not a Monday? That gives people Sunday as a travel day?

Weekend > Monday > Friday > Tuesday > Thursday > Wednesday

I'd be interested, but depends on the date. Have car stereo competitions, kids, wife and work to juggle too. :-)

Has a date been set?

If not, for those of you saying "it depends on the date", then help out Luke by stating which dates aren't good for and which are good for you. Otherwise, how can he pick a date??

I'm out if it's the first or second weeks of Sept as that's Labor Day weekend and I'll be on vacation as others probably will be too around those weekends/long weekends/weeks.

hmm, I may have to roll the chumpcar on up to Summit for this.

I suppose I could roll the wagon. It's seen a couple stints at VIR :D

The V1 needs some work before it sees the track again, and I've been so busy....

One of these days we need to do VIR (PLEEEEAAAAASE!)

Lets get this thread going again. Show some interest

Luke needs some motivation to get this thing done.

Call, PM, or email him (order some parts while you're at it :)) Lets make it happen...

Not sure if this idea has already died on the vine or what, Luke, but I was just thinking about this again. I imagine a weekday is tough for just about everyone, but if you did a Thursday, then folks who were suitably motivated could stick around for Friday and run Friday at the Track (http://www.summitpoint-raceway.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=20&Itemid=14). I know when I was living close to Summit Point (~90min drive) I didn't mind doing a single day, but now that I'm ~4hr away, I would rather do 2 days if I'm going to make the drive. I imagine others coming from even farther away might feel the same way, and having the FATT on the day after VDay would give that option.

Looks like there's only 1 FATT scheduled for September - the 13th - so that might limit the options too much. I was just looking at the calendar on Summit's website and unfortunately I don't see any other weekday events to pair up with.

There's a lot going on right now and the window to get this event done is getting smaller if its not already closed. It just may not happen this time...

Hopefully not the first two weeks of Sept.
