By yogib777
be aware times have changed
they give tickets now

two guys from the b15u group, i was there with this past September
got 150 buck tickets for 20mph over the speed limit

[folks thats just 55, i was doing triple digits down the straights, but escaped the tickets]

absolutely great place total fun

we had these decals made up.

from my experience here

basically new rules are
no more of this, tire cannot touch the line
Image1309497 by Barry Belgard, on Flickr

it is preferred for you to stay centered in your lane
Image1309491 by Barry Belgard, on Flickr

maintain reasonable distancing,
[no racing or pushing cars or bikes ahead of you]

and speeds esp on weekends less than 20mph over

go during the week or very late night runs
for real runs

[need excellent lights, no street lighting, no reflectors or silver guard rails]

best alone, groups get noticed

groups are expected to cruise
thats is
adequate, distancing, fairly constant speeds
no race braking, under 20 over

and all this depends on the officers mood
be nice they leave you alone

play boy racer, use the whole road
is hoosegow stuff

Still interested in going? Myself and a few others will be attending Touge Fest. The event is November 1-4. I have a track session on the 1st and will be driving up immediately that evening.

Since it's been dead about the matter, (mostly because forums are dead) I haven't really re-addressed it giving rom for the wifey to intervene and make plans for the end/beginning of the year (2018/2019). Though, I will be driving up to TN(Gatlinburg), it won't be with the Sentra. Looks like I'll be looking at doing this sometime next year.

So, after swinging through I-26 and I-40 to get to Gatlinburg, TN from Miami, FL in a Toyota Sienna I REALLY need to hit the Dragon! lol... I was forced to suffer through the endless joys of the curves... I was literally about an hour away from Deal's Gap and was tempted to do a pass through but the van was too clunky for me to actually enjoy.

Also, for the old members we should do a small run together in memory/honor of Barry. I plan on going sometime during the summer maybe July... if not push it back to the Fall when the weather is cooler (Early Oct). This will also give me time to do some final preparations to the car for the long drive and the run. :)

So we are definitely going to be making TougeFest an annual thing. Unfortunately, us owners of the site no longer own Nissans but we will be repping our respective carmakers.
It was so much fun, got some videos for you guys down below. Anyway, we'll let any and all know about this coming year; it will always be around the first weekend of November from what I understand.

So, I'm going to be rained out for the Dragon this long weekend unfortunately. Prospective time frame now is Memorial Day weekend May 25th - 27th (Sat - Mon). If anyone wants to meet up there during this time lmk. I plan on leaving early that Saturday then hitting the Dragon on Sunday morning (if weather permits) then leaving probably Monday morning... depends how badly I want to go home lol.
