I hope not. I won't get on the track if its scary. How many sessions do we get, and how many cars on track?

I would think they would try to keep this pretty safe. Maybe 30-35 cars on track? Two groups and a bike group maybe 4-5 25 min. sessions.

Who knows?

I'm just out there to learn the track since I'm competing in MC this season. It should be fun and I'm throwing tax-deductible ching-dow down for charity.

No my car is a DD. I go to school and work so the miata is mainly street. Just doing this track event for fun. I am going to try to run my 125 shifter with SWRA this year, Formula ford in CVAR, and lemons. Plus my car is a POS beater, one of the fenders looks like it is made out of paper mache. lol

"Just whoring."

I think I'm done with the skinnies. However, it had to be great to see a green miata with a big dent, skinny, heinous wheels screwed up with brake dust and brake-fluid shoe prints. lol

The best part of the day...I never had to put a wrench on the car. The powerplant was flawless. John Day builds a hell of a motor, Tim Fodor builds great hot-parts, and Trey is a badass tuner for simple engine management.

Very fun day. My first time ever to go miatating on track.

Things I learned:

1. Do not expect stock brakes to stop you for more than 10 minutes if driving hard.

2. Never try to run all-season tyres on the track. ******* brutal.

3. I want a spec boxter.

I wish they would do more of these type of events. It is cheap, fun, and a good way to get on the track. Though not as awesome as "real racing", I can still say I had a good time finding the limits of my car.

It was also good to see Trey not blow his **** up. And I'm pretty sure johnwags was going quicker than me despite the power difference.

All in all, pretty damn good track event for $50. Can't beat that.

Take Hustlers old nt01's and get some cheap track pads and come play. If you have 1.8 brakes I might be able to get you some 1 track day left yellow stuffs.
