    • 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

        Vishnu guys just don't get out to the track as much as BMS guys and also BMS has a larger SoCal base with Vishnu being in Northern California.
