I'm taking my daughter to SpeedWeek this year.  I sure hope the weather cooperates.  I took my son out in 2010.

I sure hope mother nature cooperates and gives us good salt.

The Brits are on their way. At the beginning of June we met up at our shipping company & 10 bikes were loaded into a 40ft container bound for LA. There are at least 5 more teams making their own way to the SALT. We fly out on assorted flights, to arrive in LA on August 3rd to collect our hire-vans & collect our bikes from Long Beach (LA). Can't wait, especially after making the same trip in 2014.
Don't push me, I'm close to the edge.

Our bike we had planned on running is not coming together as planned. If we need to cancell can I get a refund for my pre entry or can I sell it??

Yes-- here is JoAnn's response when someone just inquired of her on this (I'm buying their pre-entry).



Annie - very simple. He pays you. Then, you write a small note to
Registration explaining that you have sold your pre entry. He takes the note
with him to SpeedWeek and picks up your packet. Easy.

 My plans to go to Speedweek took a serious blow. Originally had planned on being there Friday through at least Tuesday. Now I cant head up there until at least mid day Sunday. My question is, is it even worth it to head up and watch Monday-Wednesday? I know the competitots start thinning out as the week goes on. Decisions, decisions

There will be plenty of good entrys when you are there. Maybe by Wednesday it will be getting thin. But still better than you will find anywhere else.

Frankie, it sounds like you'll miss about a day and a half of running. I'd do it but, i'm funny like that.  :cheers: Wayno

It will thin out a little, but Monday thru Wednesday is usually still good racing for sure.  That's only 2 days late to a 7 day event.  That time of week, in my experience, the lines shorten up a little bit but there are still lines, and still cars running pretty much constantly (barring weather issues or an incident on course).  In some cases I've seen racers get there and wait a couple days before even getting in line for the shorter lines and/or to get a few reports from others on the course conditions.
