    Standing Mile Event In Ohio

    This is reposted for the Northeast guys:
    So now that the Maxton Mile standing mile event is officially defunct the venue will now be held in Wilmington,Ohio. The first race of the 4 scheduled races is set for April 28/29 2012.

    I've always wanted to run the standing mile&now is a better time then ever since its closer than Maxton for me.

    Anybody else interested in going??

    Im really looking forwards to this,hopefully all 3 bikes will crack 200 and one may break 205mph...a friend is bring his '11 BMW S1000RR also
    I have an old ECTA from '06,I'll dig it up&see what they say about the rollcage..again,that was second hand info I shared and if its true that would eliminate a lot of stock cars(like yours)that can easily acheive 150+ in a mile...I doubt that the 150mph number is true but you never know

    When I Googled "ECTA rollcage requirements" this came up,dont know how accurate it is but I know the guys from Eurocharged hit these one mile events frequently,maybe they will jump in this thread&shed some light on the subject.

    I can throw my 2 cents in....

    I personally will never attend a mile event that has not been run before. There is just too much danger in the type of event to be left for rookies. We have seen it all from lambos flipping right in front of me, sunroofs going airborne, and tires blowing at high speed.

    Most events of this nature, in their infantcy tend to get real "strict" with their safety requirements as their insurance requires it and they don't know better. Also for the stock car comment, don't forget that you will have a headwind to deal with. (design of the airports guarentees this)

    At the texas event, your pretty much good to hit 170 with just the basic safety equipment. Race jacket, race gloves, approved helmet, and fire extinguisher within reach. Once you hit 180 it gets more strict, and so on. At 200 your required to have a license/chut etc...

    I will echo my other thread post with, just please make sure to check out the track and the shutdown area. You typically do not have a lot of area to shutdown and it requires great breaking power.

    FYI...the texas mile has a half mile shutdown before the turn. If you do the math, doing 180mph that would leave you with around 9 seconds to slow to turning speed.

    If you guys have any questions about anything mile related feel free to ask, we have done it so many times we have no problem sharing the info!
