Cool. Lets get more guys out to this event. It would be nice to out number the corvettes for a change. It's tough when there are normally 2 Vipers that show up. 8)

I've sent out 135 invitations to Viper owners for the event. If you would like to have a list of people to call I can send you their phone #s

Thank you Scott for stepping up to the plate and forming this event for the Club.  We need more members to have your attitude and get off their butt and help.

I hope to make this event. Iíve had my 1998 GTS for 3 weeks and would appreciate the opportunity to learn how to control this beast!  Do spots sell-out or can I register the week of?  I live in a Riverside.

We love to have new Viper guys show up! Come on out and we can help you learn to drive the beast that is a Viper! It sells out. I would register now. If you can't make it you can always cancel it with speedlimit racing and refund.

Do they rent/sell helmets on site or do I need to provide my own?  If I need to provide, any recommendations on Brand/Model?

Almost any helmet will work. They donít inspect them. They just want you to have one on.

Hey Omid,
It would be well worthwhile to buy a helmet.  Just make sure that you buy one with a Snell SA2015 rating.
You could buy one with a SA2010 rating, but it will be expired/disallowed for use in Jan of 2020.

Do not buy a motorcycle helmet.  They have a different rating and if you continue on to track events in your Viper, they will not allow them.

You should definitely take some time to go and try one on.  They all fit differently.  Simpson racing is Harbor City and you can try on their helmets. SUBE Motorsports is in Huntington beach and he has a variety of different brands.  PCI Race in Signal Hill also has a bunch on the shelf to try on.

Good luck

Hi Omid

Speed Ventures supplies a printed number for your Viper so don't worry about that.  The weather should be perfect and the smoke from the fires should not be a problem.  Have a great time!

The air quality currently is great up here. of course that could change with the wind but the fires are farther north near SB so most of the smoke is up there. It will be warm so bring sun screen.
They supply plenty of water. Bring a folding chair if you want to sit.
They have loaner helmets, they don't require any special helmets so if you have one any kind will work, I see people using motocross helmets.
Be sure and drive by 7:30 am for registration and gate entry.
Also I assume you signed up? If you did not the event is full!
