    I'm disorganizing the Momo Road to Rennsport Tour. Starting in So Cal (location to be announced), we take to the back roads September 27th (Thursday) , Lunch and Laps at Buttonwillow, then more back roads to a reception area at Laguna Seca late that afternoon. Special parking passes will be provided to RR Tour entrants.
    So if you are NOT racing at RR 6, then you can enjoy some terrific roads and track time before the long weekend
    Contact me for the event info

    thanks

    Planning my trip from New Zealand again. I’m assuming practise is Fri, racing is Sat & Sun. So is Thu just a roll up, set up & mingle day? if so I’ll fly in Thu lunch time. Looking forward to catching up with many Porsche friends!
    Any info appreciated.

    My plan is to attend the East Coast 912 Rendezvous in Roanoke (I am planning the event), and return back home on Sept 16 in Ohio. On Sept 19 I repack the car for the much longer trip (more spares and stuff, and camping gear), and Sept 22 at 6 AM, i head west.

    My plan is to drive to Rennsport, and camp out at national parks the way out and back (most of the time) heading through RMNP or MVNP and maybe Arches. After Rennsport I will leave the car at a friends shop in Anaheim for some maintenance and tuning, and then fly home out of SNA.

    A month later I will fly back with my wife, pick up the car and then head to Solvang for the West Coast 912 Rendezvous (which I am also planning). After I will drop the wife off for her solo flight home, and I will continue my road trip heading back home, stopping at national parks all the way back, especially spending 3-4 days in AZ/UT parks.


    oh, and I will be camping at Rennsport too.. anyone else camping at the track? or does everyone have hotels?

    Yes. Come in Through the Black Hills. Through Gillette to Sheridan Wy. Then south to Buffalo on 25. Then west over the Big Horn Mts to the Big Horn Canyon to Tensleep WY. Find your way from there to Red Lodge MT. Then up and over the Beartooth Highway and Dead Indian Pass to Cody. Then through Yellowstone To Teton Natl Park and The ID border. Or skip Cody and go through Yellowstone direct to Jackson and Teton Park from Red Lodge. DO NOT MISS THE BEARTOOTH HIGHWAY! From JH WY it is 12 to 13 hrs to Reno on mostly interstate. That's how I would do it with a few variations here and there. You can camp almost anywhere along the way once in WY at that time of year.

    BIG +1 Steve...

    Did that drive on a trip across the country in the summer of '71...
    I remember shouting to my friend... "... is that silver thread all the way down there the river we were at an hour ago ???"

    Almost 50 years on one of the things that most sticks is THAT part of the trip... Breathtaking !!!!
