We're aiming to make it out for this. The goal is to bring two or three K swapped cars out and give rides all day.

Thanks for helping put this event together!

I think it'll be a great time and has the potential to grow into something even better!

That's awesome, glad things are coming together well for this. Maybe it can be an annual thing.

60+ signed up now. I have a feeling it'll spike in entries as we get closer to the even.

Get a rollbar, then sign up! Lol

You can still come to the track for free and watch, maybe even ride along with vendors.

80+ now. Looks like green/novice is currently wait-listed. The cap for this event is 125..... I have a feeling it'll hit cap in pre-reg next year!

Wow. 106 registered. Looking forward to this. Not looking forward to pointing by all the stock powered Miatas in the wet, though...

Sadly, I have to bow out. My trusty steed started smoking like a chimney yesterday - I think my rings have given up.

See y'all next year!

Great event overall. If you've never done a track day in the rain it's an excellent learning experience. Hopefully this becomes a regular thing for MATG.

This was definitely a great time. Once the rain slowed down in the afternoon there was a surprising amount of grip out there even though everything was still wet. Looking forward to driving at AMP again sometime in the dry soon.

This turned out to be a blast!!! We'll absolutely be doing it again next year! So everyone start planning on it. Thanks to everyone that came.



Looks slow on video, but more fun IRL as usual lol.

Before you ask, I have gloves, but they were falling apart before the event and by this session they were done for and soaked. This is the second driest session of the day. Sorry for the audio, I haven't spent any time to find a good place for the external mic.
