Apparently they already sold all the computers. They never sent an email telling me "tough luck, the class we rescheduled you for after we cancelled your class in March, has been cancelled. Sucka!". After the court date was scheduled we called to check the status and they said they were trying to restructure, but were honoring classes scheduled through the end of the year. A week before the court date I got an email offering an upgrade to the 4 day class for a discount (I ignored it). So it would appear they wanted to shake us down for more money right to the end.

Luckily, after over an hour working with the credit card company yesterday, we were given a tentative credit for the money. We have to wait for another case worker to call next week.

I wonder if I can cash in the 1000 "Skip Barber Bucks" they gave me for the last minute cancellation on some used car parts.

Nah. There are 400 to 500 racers right now doing 24 hours of vir that probably wouldn't be racing at all if it weren't for the cheap and easy to enter racing leagues going on right now.

I see racing growing like crazy at the grassroots level.

I'd gladly take one of those beat up Miatas off their hands. Or maybe even something else. Wonder what kind of prices we will see...

I can't imagine any of those miatas or formula cars will get more than 4-6K. They were looking pretty rough. Provided the chassis is straight, it'd make a really run track day car for under 10K all in though.

A realy clean example of one of those formula cars would be in the $12-$15k range.

I am expecting them to go for 1/3 of that and hoping for 1/5 that.

Wonder if the racing suits and shoes and stuff will be sold individually or as a lot?

Wouldnt mind picking up a setup cheap.

The thing with the Formula cars is that unless they already slot into another existing racing class, they're pretty much lawn ornaments. Can't take them to (most) track days and if there's no class, who are you racing against?

Anybody know max driver size on those formula cars? We need a list of forum members who plan to attend that thing.

there are enough formula cars to start a class, like Very Stock engine and transaxel,just like what NCJay showed.

How the hell do you do a 90 day auction? Surely they must have some sort of schedule as to what items will be up for bids by calendar date...

Exactly! Anyone have any information on how the process is going to work?

The credit card company is mailing us a check for our school fee we paid when we enrolled. So that is good. My wife looked through the legal stuff. It appears they entered a motion to sell instead of restructure on Aug 8. It sold for 830k.

I asked to.be included on the sellers website but haven't heard anything from them yet. There was also a phone number. I may try to call that today.

Well yes actually!

I've been communicating with the firm holding the liquidation sale (Liquid Asset Partners) and although they don't have all the details yet, here's what they know so far:

We will have a list of items for sale – hopefully by Wednesday or Thursday of this week. A lot of people that we’ve talked to already regarding this sale are confused as to how the process works. It will not be an auction; it will be an on-site, extended-negotiated sale. The first day of the sale will be August 29, beginning at 11:00am at the location in Braselton, GA, and will be open 6 or 7 days a week there-after for about 3 months (hours and exact dates of the sale are TBD, but we should have that information narrowed down soon).
