***Crickets***

F'ing crickets....That's All I hear! :D

I contacted CART in Limerock about their exclusion of the SUV's from their events. They said they'd put it out to discussion. One guy chimed in and said no because he went for a ride in someone elses Cayenne and it was still a top heavy boat. Mind you it wasn't the Turbo.
I sent them video of the current generation on a track chasing down a lotus elise.
I politely asked to just open it up to one of us and you can do a ride along to show them the capabilities of these High Performance SUV's on tracks.
They obviously didn't know the '12 SRT8 Jeep ran the 'Ring as fast as the 2003 Viper.
I think he just doesn't want to get beat on the track by a "Lumbering" SUV.

Anyone you know I can contact at CART to chime in with you to see they allow us in?

I really just want one session on track to see how the beast handles in "track mode"

I'll put up the emails I have for anyone else to send them some info.
I'm also going to send them the video of the Jeep on the 'Ring.

In the meanwhile I have contacted SCDA to see if they will allow the SRT on track.....

I will keep you posted......

Scott, since you asked......:)

I have gotten approval for our SRTs to participate at a Lime Rock track event.

It would be interesting to see how the beast performs with all the sports/race cars on track......

Trying to allure QuickOne and Transam to join me, but anyone else interested can PM me if they want to join in........

would love to go if I were closer! The 1/4 mile mash and go just doesnt interest me anymore!

I'm 90% in after clearance and signature of wifey's permission slip.

And for those scared of scratching their ride...There's something called Track Insurance:

This covers the vehicle, as most personal policies pretty much clearly exclude racing from any insurance claim.

Brian that is great! I know you won't regret it....... rain or shine.....

OK then, so what is holding every other New Englander back?

Here is the chance for you to see what your beast can really do in a SRT friendly environment........:thumbsup:
