Good weekend everyone!!!

Our first Open Track Day of the year is coming soon...Sunday, April 17th is just a few weeks away. If you are interested in participating, there is online registration at http://www.myautoevents.com and a mail in registration is available here http://www.waterfordhills.com/downloads ... d-form.pdf

There have been questions about having an open wheel group, this would be possible if I have at least 8 cars commited to being there. If you are going to be there, please respond here or send me an email at opentrackday@waterfordhills.com

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, otherwise...See you soon!!!

Hi there.

I'm super stoked about the OTDs at WFH.
Is there a way to have your car inspected prior to the OTD?
I'm not sure which one of my vehicle will be ready for the 17th. Maybe my SRT4, maybe my Vette. In case I can't get one of them done I would just goof of with my DD - a crown vic cop car.
The vic does not currently have mufflers, but it has high flow cats with a full exhaust and I don't consider it to be loud at all.
I'd just like to avoid signing and showing up just to get booted for noise violations.
In other words: can I have my db level checked prior to the actual event? I live in White Lake, so swinging by would be easy for me.
Also, is it ok if a muffler less car passes the db check? My SRT has a straight pipe exhaust, but the turbo acts like a muffler. They come without mufflers from the dealer btw!

What about cars that didn't have any stock??? I assume that doesn't matter either, right?
Hm, are cherry bombs considered mufflers? That would be a quick fix.

Yes, ALL cars, even formula cars.

Yes, cherry bombs are commercially available mufflers; one of our racecars in fact makes use of one.

Excellent. Those things are cheap.
What about super trapps, are those considered mufflers too?

Thanks for the advise by the way!

Well, between glass packs and super traps I'm sure I'll be able to figure something out.
The rest of the tech is much like in an auto / rally cross I would assume?

Tech is straight forward, just show up ready to go on track and please make sure you are in line before 9:15. Tech opens at seven.
