I wanna be There..............

:( :( :( :( :(

Too many miles before i sleep...........
You know the saying, You only live once buddy,
so kiss the wife and kiddes,
hop in that Corvette and join us at the route 66 birthday bash.

Heck can you pass up getting a chance at driving the tech speed of 166 MPH for 66 miles :)

We'll have all kind of press coverage there and what better way to show off a "Made in the USA" sports car can do on this historic road ( remember the route 66 t.v show that had a vette as the star of that show ?)

When going to Chicago, I leave S.F Ca area one day and by late the next evening am there, that's about 2,400 miles and just me driving, so find yourself a navigator and spent a few days of mid Nov in 70 degree weather, besides this is one way to really know what a Corvette is really all about :)

Your talking me in, now as for the boss and time off i owe him about 2 wks now !!!

:D :D :D

If i dont make it this ones for ya:guiness:
Wave the American flag in front of the boss and tell em you have to be there to not only defend the flag but also the Corvette honor.

Besides tell him you'll allow him to put a logo of his business on your Corvette and give him real cheap marketing :)

If the boss is a she and has a great bod, promise her she can be a navigator :)

Think about it, travel a football field per second, imagine, cruising at 150 MPH, and say "Ooh I fell like doing 165 MPH" and up ahead is a cop and instead of him waving you over to the side of the road, he is waving you on to go faster ! :)

Life does not begin until you have ORR'd

I will detail this in more detail on a special Route 66 webpage on both main Team ZR-1 websites.
The Team Forum will be used to discuss the race event.

This is going to be quite different then us old timers are used to.

The Route 66 event starts on Weds at noon, to begin tech and registration.

Thursday continues the above and also includes classroom for those who need and and also
high speed practice.

Friday continues the above including another practice period.

Saturday, Race day - first car out is 7:30 A.M.

The course : hang on to your shorts, you will cover 66 miles ( if you remember 66, many things use that )
but it's 3 runs at speed, each 22 miles.

In that 22 miles ( between Ludlow and Amboy) is :

11 corners, 6 blind hill crests and several bridges !
So it's not just stepping on the G-pedal and waiting to hit the finish line, you'll have to work out your plan of attack ( should be easier for 1st timers of ORRing since they have no other ORR to compare to)

Poker run is between two route 66 museums ( Victorsville and Barstow) in which there will be 5 places you have to stop and obtain 1 card for your poker hand. Assume about 3 hours plus to complete this poker run.
There is cash awards for this poker run.

Call Ramada Inn for your room at 760-256-5073 and be sure you tell them it's for the route 66 RRRA race to get the discounted rate.

It has been agreed on that if you had paid a membership for the ARRA ORRs your membership for this year will be honored at this event !
Else membership fee is you got it ( $66 )

Entry fees start at street division ( 85-90 MPH target speeds with a 104 MPH tech speed) at $266
up to Super Sport at $566

There will be 16 classes, starting at 85 mph and going up in 5-mph increments to 160 mph.
The Governor's Cup is the closest team to 166 mph. Win 1st - 2nd - 3rd place trophies in each class.

85-90 mph classes - Top speed 105 mph.

95- 100 - 105 - 110 - Top speed 124 mph.

115 - 120 - 125 - Top speed 140 mph.

130 - 135 - 140 - 145 - 150 - Top speed of 166 mph.

155 - 160 - Top speed 166 mph.

Governors Cup - All cars with 166 mph tech speed

Maximum race cars = 250

I'll post the rest on team forum and webpage. Reserve your spot, car number and motel soon !

Ooh man,

I read an article about an ORR similiar to this in a car mag last year. What a rush it must be. Are they planning on making this an annual event? If they are then I am going to make it next year! :z:
