Mike~
We will get there early,we will try and look for you. :)


Spectator Information: Gate fee on the race Sunday is usually $10-12 per adult at Sears Point, Thunderhill and Buttonwillow, with kids 12 and under getting in for free. Gates open at 6:30 am for racers & workers, but the Sunday action doesn't start until 8:00 with first practice sessions... the first race usually starts at approx. 10:30 to 11:00, with 2-3 races held before lunch, and the balance of the races recommencing at around 12:30 or so and continuing to approx 5:00 pm.

The raceday schedule (order that the different classes are run) usually changes from race-to-race, but the AFM's Premiere event, the Formula Pacific Challenge... "the fastest riders on the fastest bikes..." is normally held sometime between 1:45 to 3 pm.

Spectators have full access to the paddock and can freely browse around, but there are some safety rules to follow... see the raceday program when you arrive for the racetrack's list of "do's and don'ts". This is especially important when it comes to children and pets... for their safety please keep a watchful eye on them at all times and keep them in control.

One more reason to go! ;D

The final AFM races are this Sunday at Sears Point.(aka Infineon
Raceway.) Vallejo HD is currently in second place for the Formula
Twins category with a chance to win the Championship with Shawn Riley
piloting their Buell Bike. This is going up against Honda RC-51,
Suziki SV1000 and the like.

Just some great road racing Sunday with admission only $10.00.
Saturday is free is you want to see the testing/qualifying and also
the Four hour endurance race.

I'll be there. Gates open at 8:00 AM Racing starts around 10:00 AM.

I can't decide between the AFM races and the Motard races in Sonoma. I may do both, but I'm not sure yet.

WOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!! I LOVE KEN HILL!!! Yes, he rides a Ducati and he beat the Buell in Formula Open. It was a quick race as there was a major wreck in turn 11. Scary for a moment as my good friend Greg Creech was in the turn when it happened. Felt bad for Shawn Reilly on the Buell but, it just was not up to par today sputtering and all.

Richard Reyes are other friend took a bad spill in his warm up lap and did not race until race 5, but did well and Jeff Tigert won that race, although Ken Hill came in 4th ;D

Ed Barlow on his very cool 125 in race 7 did well too! Yeah! Ed ;D

On major news, Marty and I are doing track days with Greg in November and December and we both bought steering dampers for our bikes. Mine is Red, his is Black very cool accessory. It was such a beautiful day out at Sears Point and I am sad AFM is over for this season, but looking forward to March for the beginning.
