    • Famoso Raceway - California Private Drag Strip Rental - 11/20/2010

      Ladies and gentlemen, It is this time of year again.... I have reserved Famoso Raceway (1/4 mile drag strip) on November 20th for our exclusive use. We will have both lanes available to us as well as full use of the entire facility including the barbecue grills I am announcing the event earlier than usual this time to give enough time to people who are currently working on their car(s) or have on-going projects to wrap up their projects and bring their cars to the track for live testing and maybe even fine tuning. In the past, every time I organized one of these events I ended-up losing $300 to $600 out of pocket, which was okay until last year.... last time I ended-up paying $2400 out of pocket mostly in last minute cancellations. Lesson learned, so this time we're doing it by the book

      PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
      - Price per car is $250 payable through PayPal. You must select "Personal" when transferring the money.... otherwise, the cost is $260 per car.
      - All payments must be submitted on or before November 14th.... Sorry NO EXCEPTIONS.
      - There will be NO PAYMENTS ACCEPTED AT THE TRACK for racing. The only payment collected at the track will be spectator fee. Sorry NO EXCEPTIONS.
      - Spectator fee is $10 per person and will be collected at the gates upon admission by track officials.
      - To cancel your spot and receive full refund, you must cancel (at least) 5 days before the event date. Otherwise, no refund will be issued.
      - Send payment to the following PayPal account:




      - With each payment, please include the following information:
      • Full name (as it appears on your driver's license)
      • Make/Model/Color of the car you will be using.
      • Telephone number & E-mail Address (in case of last minute updates)
      Now for the fun part....
      In November, Famoso usually sees very good DA: -200 ft to +600 ft (I know it's not as good as east coast tracks, but it is very decent for California). In a private rental, the track is usually well prepped and each of us will be able to get as many runs as we can/want with almost NO WAITING time at all. This would be a good opportunity to practice/perfect launches, shift times, try out different mods, fine tune each car, and most importantly hang out with a great group of car enthusiasts who share the same passion.
      SPECIAL BONUS
      There will be at least THREE TUNERS at the event. So whoever wants to fine tune their vehicle under real-world driving conditions, this will be your chance. Custom dyno tuning is great but you just can't beat custom track tuning especially on a good day :-D

      Here are a few memories from our past events, enjoy....

        Who cares? All about fun, the entire crowd is cool. If someone says something, we'll break their legs.

        +100000..... this is not about being the quickest/fastest, this is about improving your own personal time while having fun doing it. There are no prizes, trophies, or world titles being handed out here. Just come enjoy a great day of drag racing, learn your car a great deal, and enjoy the company of a very passionate group of enthusiasts in the process. Even if you don't race, I guarauntee you'll have a lot of fun. And by the way, we've had cars that run 17 seconds and were able to improve their times by at least 0.6 seconds just by practicing launch and shift techniques.

        Is everything okay with your car? The reason I ask is that I remember talking to you about this event back in May so it's been at least 6 months. When is your car expected to be done? We may try to organize another one in January.... hopefully you'll be good to go by then. Are you still coming as spectator?

        Yes, I think I will take pics and vids for everyone.

        I think everything is ok, the whole thing is just taking forever... hopefully it will be worth it.
