    CO: Ice racing meet

    So after talking to my friend Tyler and having mentioned some things on previous meets I decided to try and set up an Ice racing meet up in Georgetown. Its only $20 to enter and all you need is AWD and winter tires (non-studded) or I suppose all-seasons if you felt tough. Im thinking early January but want to get some interest first. This will need to be planned out a little bit ahead of time so we know who is going because for some of us that live a long ways away a hotel reservation may be necessary. I'll post a couple links to the site with the info, any interest in going or ideas or requests for which date can be posted in the thread. Anything else you need feel free to pm me or text me 9706890488

    haha... I'm jk. Your car will be just fine... a little oil, and a swift kick in the ass, and it'll be ready to roll in no time.

    I'd be up for this, but I don't have a clue what job I'll be doing in 5 months.

    I don't think I'm really interested in taking my car on the ice with a bunch of guys who probably don't have a lot of ice driving experience (present company excluded of course ).

    I'll bring my truck though.

    I believe last year they had a "test day" in December. I was hoping to do a few of the races this year so I would be interested.

    you don't go on the ice at the same time...obviously. I think I saw a couple test days on the schedule, you do get practice time though

    edit: Looks like the test day is december 30th. My worry with doing December is everyone is out of town or has family in town and all that. I know I will personally be in Texas in all likelihood

    Is the no-studded tire a requirement of just getting on the ice or is it a specific class? I plan on getting studded tires but was hoping to get out on the ice just to mess around... do they not let you out there if you've got studs? Thanks!

    My understanding is there are different classes. The "entry level" class doesn't seem to allow studded tires but they are allowed in other classes. Once interest picks up I will find out more details

    They have bare rubber classes and studded classes.
    Bare rubber classes...
    Street stock class does not allow studs or snow tires but you are allowed to sipe the tires. Performance of the vehicle cannot otherwise be modified.

    A tire labeled studless will automatically bump you up to Pro street. Pro street does not allow studs but any modification other than brakes is allowed as long as the vehicle remains street legal and suspension type and geometry is unchanged. (they mention emmisions but I am unsure of how strict they are)

    Competition class vehicles do not have to be street legal, brake mods allowed, snow tires allowed but no studs. Axle types must remain the same.
    Stud classes...
    Pro street studs, same rules as bare rubber pro street but tires must be DOT approved factory studded tires. Helmets required.

    The other stud classes are using pupose built ice racing tires and require full roll cages and helmets. I doubt any of us would be in those classes but I fyou are curious the rule book is here here
