    Miami Mile 10/10/10 Run Cancelled

    Just got notice and a refund via email, they are going to reschedule at a later date, not sure what the reasoning was/is.

    Back to 1/4 mile racing for a bit I guess. TX is a 24hr tow for Keith, ECTA is a better bet but their rulebook is an inch thick. Miami's great because you can run in shorts and a T-shirt. Kind of like Norwalk, home of the 9 second helmetless and sleeveless NE Ohio Harley contingent! Click here to enlarge

    No mention of a ballpark date though? No explanation?

    i was also disappointed and wanted to show my car's potential at the October event. i got the word from abid. he said they plan to reschedule some time in December. but to be honest it couldnt have worked out better, not only does everyone have more time to prepare their car for the event to make sure its running 100%, but the weather will be significantly cooler, hopefully Click here to enlarge you never know in Miami.

    I asked for a ballpark date and didn't get a reply, so I guess we'll plan on december? No explanation other than it was for reasons outside of their control.

    Thanks

    I wonder if its related to some zoning and insurance issues that came up recently with that airport...

    Quite possibly? I never heard anything concrete directly from them.

    At the end of April this year there was a 1 mile event I attended, that was organized by Exotic Rally (org like top gun run), and they mentioned those issues and said that could possible be the last 1 mile event there, ever... I've been hoping they were wrong...

    That doesn't sound good, the website says they're planning on Dec but no confirmation of that. Thanks for the heads up, what a waste of a SAFE 1-1.25 mile track. Looks like the ECTA is the next closest place for Floridians to run the standing mile--granted their rule book is an inch thick and they are ANAL about safety equipment.

    Is TX like Mojave where you can only go XXX mph on your first few passes (why waste the time?)

    That makes sense, always so much red tape to get through with this kind of thing. I'm surprised they were able to pull it off at all.

    ive been to bradenton, you ever go to fixxfest? it's coming up isnt it? they do good track prep there when there isn't an event and 100's of cars ripping it up in front wheel drive vw's lol.

    what do you mean did they go? it hasn't happened yet. last mile event in miami abid has a video of the 135 run. i hope the new one does happen and sometime this year, ill try to get more info if abid has any updates on the situation when i see him soon.
