WINTERFEST: Who's going?


Recommended Posts

All, I know the WINTERFEST II is mostly sponsored by the www.z06vette.com crew, but regardless of what year your Corvette is, whether it be a Z06 or not, you are all welcome to attend. It is this Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (FEB 28, 29, March 1st and 2nd) Can you post up if you ARE ATTENDING? And what your count is? Such as

2 - GARY and his WIFE will be attending. (Not sure what days)

1 - I will be attending (Show up on Friday)

etc....I am trying to get a good idea how many ACE folks will show.

Too bad I can't be there sooner. I planned it in advance and wouldn't you know, I got screwed.....So, I will have to make the trek up Friday afternoon to evening time frame, just in time

for drinks and social hour after their long track day. Saturday is drags!! I hear there is the Arizona Exotic Car Club showing out too, so it woul dbe a great day to show and check out some wicked rides....

Who is in, what day will you arrive, and how many in your party?

Winterfest is a Corvette enthusiasts playground for 4 days. Started up 3 years ago as "Z06 Fest in the West" and it now has become a annual meet. All Corvettes are encouraged to attend.

See links for events: Dynos, Tuning, Tracks, Drags, Go Karts, Dinners, Socials, Partying.... 4 days long!!! Communication for such an event is not good. Its not too late to sho wout, especially since most ACE personnel are in Phoenix!

I was looking to do the Fri event, but can not because of work.

I believe there are a few from here going on certain days.

Good Luck and have fun.

Ahh, cool. Is the Saturday Speedworld thing a "reservation" thing or a "just show your happy ass up and find us" thing? :burnout2 I'm going to try to make that!

We're going to depart for Phoenix (WinterFest) at 0730 on the 28th and go straight to the Dyno event. We'll be headed back home after the drags on Saturday.

Just checking, has anybody confirmed that the track is still open on Saturday? Speedworld's website shows:

Scottsdale Exotic Car Club Day

Time: 9:00 AM


Scottsdale Exotic Car Club will be taking over the track for the day. For more information go to www.scottsdaleexoticcarclub.com

...and the Scottsdale Exotic site shows:

The Scottsdale Exotic Car Club is proud to present our "Day at The Drags" event. This event is open to all SECC members and guests, as well

as, non-members. This event will be held at Speedworld Dragstrip in Wittman, AZ. Speedworld Raceway Park is the oldest track in the Phoenix

area. With a redesigned and resurfaced track and facilities, Speedworld has the best racing surface in Arizona. The SECC has rented the facility

for our use.

Just wanted to make sure before we all head out there. :burnout2

Ahh, at the bottom of the page:

The cost for this event is:

$25.00 to race for SECC members

$45.00 to race for non-SECC members at the gate

$15.00 to spectate for SECC members

$25.00 to spectate for non-SECC members at the gate

So I guess even though they rented out the track they're letting other people run for $20 more than regular price. Cool.
