Need race crew

Post by leegrx7 » Mon Apr 24, 2017 10:49 am

Heading to Virginia international raceway (VIR at Danville VA) next week ( may 4/5-6) and I (long time ETR MEMBER lee graser) need some crew guy(s). There should be 4-5 other ETR RACERS at the event ( we usually paddock together) All expenses paid ---lodging food transportation, if you know how to use a lug wrench and set air pressure you are 100% qualified.
If you like cars, like watching racing , like to auto-X or are thinking about racing yourself -you are a perfect fit. I drive a 97 miata, in ITA, the car prep at the track is simple/ minimal no "hot" pit stops . Approx schedule- leave late Thursday evening, 3hrs to statesville,NC--hotel overnight--Friday pick up tires in statesville , 3 hrs to track-- 2- 30 minute test sessions on Friday, qually and 30 minute race Saturday and same on Sunday -- there are approx 5 Other races each day (30-90 minutes each) to watch. Call/text my cell (lee graser ) at my race shop in Andersonville ,TN (Norris area)for details 843-655-5884. Let's go racing !!!

Keep me in mind-- there is a lot more racing on my schedule as the season progresses and you will be welcome whenever it works for your schedule

If anyone has thought about doing this, VIR is the place to go. Beautiful track and great facilities.

Let me see if Dana will need assistance, if not I might be able to crew.

If anyone ever wanted to see what happens at road races, this is a fun easy way to do it.

+1 for ViR I really like the track.

I'd like to double-dip into ITS or STL and run SCCA events end of this year or sometime next year. Of course both ITS and STL rules are annoying(typical SCCA knick-picking) so I'll probably end up in EP.

I ran STL all last year to qualify for the RUNOFFS --neat experience. Back to ITA this season.

In case anyone is wondering what happened, I merged the two posts Lee made (one in SCCA General and one in Road Race). No point in have two separate conversations on the same topic. I left the merged topic in SCCA General as it will see the most traffic there and there will probably be some non Road Race people that might be interested in going.
