Check this out!

wannaGOFAST - High-Speed Racing - Home

This event is open to anyone who wants to wind out there Corvette like it's meant to be wound out.

The event is June 1st and 2nd in Chicago. Event registration starts Jan 4 and is limited to 150 cars per day.

Myself and few local cars will be attending and racing.

It will be a cool event to cruise down to and watch, and even better race! The more merrier I find!

There is going to be alot cars from mild to wild with exotics and lots of American Muscle.

But be warned-these kind of events will lead to the "mod" bug real fast!

That'd be a great cruise......I haven't been to the Windy City for about 4 yrs, last time there on business I found some great blues clubs among other things, Dan Aykroyd has one "up town" and Buddy Guy has one "downtown" lol......I used to truck through there regularly back in the 70's as well........
50/50 we'll be in for the cruise......sounds like a good time!

Sounds awesome! I basically have the month of June off so the timing would be perfect. Post details on hotels/group discounts, etc. Leeann and I were just talking the other day about doing a trip to Chicago. This would be a perfect compromise...cars amd speed for me and some sightseeing for her.:thumbup::beer::cool:

I think this idea Justin may work for me too with Cheri:D
 
If we can get a list of who wants to go maybe we can get an itinerary together

I will get the details as to where were booked to stay. I beleive it's a Best Western.

So far I think my plan is to leave on Thursday and arrive sometime Thursday Evening.

The Friday we can sleep in and relax and check out the facilities. Alot of my US friends will be there as well.

Saturday is the day of the event. I'm pretty sure our plans is to run on Saturday-although the racing is open for Saturday and Sunday.

There are supposed to be some very HEAVY HITTERS coming to this event. Some 1900 WHP GTR's and some Underground Lambo's and Vipers.

Anyone can enter-just go to the website for details. Registration is supposed to open up on Jan 4th and should fill up very quickly.

We can probably all meet up at DasilvaMotorsports and use that as a meeting point.

It's great to see all the interest in this! It's going to be great to meet everyone and have your support!

Sounds good Ryan. This should be better than Z06Fest. Underground Racing put out some serious cars.

Great pics! :thumbup::cool: Arun, what mph are you attempting to hit? I'm assuming that you'll be tweaking your car for top end power.

My goal is to hit 185-190.

First time ever doing this so there will be a learning curve.

Car will be geared different than the quarter mile for sure. I plan on only using 2 gears, the first gear will get to me to 120mph and then second gear will get me to 200.

The gears and which ones I will be using is a secret-my method is unconventional but it has been proven to work for big power cars.

We'll be bringing down a few different sets of tires as well to see which tire offers the most grip and stability down track. We will also have to tweak with different shock settings too to get the most plant off the line and then keep the nose down up top.

So many things to consider.

It's going to be alot fun!
 
Sounds like a Great event & Road Trip!!
Would have loved to join in on this. But we are away on vacation that week.
 
Thanks Arun for the pics this has me sold for sure I think my wife and i will roll down on friday and hit the track for saturday and then sunday some site seeing. I hope we will have an oppurtunity to get some of these really great photo shots :coolgleam: of all the sweet cars that will be on the airstrip
