G8/GTO Owners iNternational Event 2013 (GONE 2013)

Lets make this official now. The dates of the event will be Thursday, September 19 - Sunday, Sept 22. There are still some details to update, but there is one really great change. Cordova Dragway Park has offered us a full two hours of private track rental prior to their regular Test-N-Tune for the same price that we paid for one hour last year. Folks who were there last year realize how great this will be! There will be two full hours of G8s and GTOs blasting down the track for as many passes as there care to make, AND then there will be about four more hours of Test-N-Tune racing with an optional GONE bracket racing competition.

I'm for sure going this year again! I'll try and save for a hotel room this year. Lol. Hey bracketracer and ZEP, what are some different options for food? Last year rooftop didn't seem to go over well. I'd be all about a pig roast or something like that? Those always go well for a crowd like us.

I do want to update folks that preliminary plans for a G.O.N.E. South 2013 are being suspended. I agree with the folks who considered hosting that it would end up being in competition with the main G.O.N.E. event. I also want to announce that the intention will be to move G.O.N.E. 2014 to the state of Texas. At least preliminarily we are looking at around the same time of year (Sept/Oct), and likely being hosted in the San Antonio area. Further details to follow.

Deep in the heart of Texas. Drivetime for me from Oklahoma is about the same. With in an hour of either location. No Casinos in Texas but plenty of raceways!

Both Tulsa and OKC are enroute for those coming from the NE. We could arrange a meet and cruise to San Antonio.
