I would be in for it, but only on the weekend. I know that would carry a higher entry fee, but we should get more people to sign up.

I'm going to VIR on the 13th and 14th of November with TPM. I think this is a good idea, especially on the wknd. I have done Pocono East, Fusa, Mosport and will complete the North and Patriot course shortly.

If we decide to do a forum trackday, what track would you choose? I think Summit point is a good start. It's roughly the same distance from the southern states as it is to the northern states. Plus its an awesome track I haven't been to yet. Keep me updated!!!!

Thanks, Ruben

I DONT KNOW BUT VIR IS 12 SUMMIT IS EVEN FARTHER.. IF I GET IT TOGETHER IT WILL BE AT VIR sorry caps at work. the one main reason is to get me chad and kevin up that way. i will get to wrok on it alittle more after RA november 19. VIR is such a smooth track and be easy for some of us to get there. sorry ifyou dont like it but that is where i will try and get it organized at

It's not that I dont like it, why else would I be going there in 2 weeks. Just hear me out, if were gonna drive 8 hrs to do a trackday, i'd like to do 2 trackdays then, not just one. An 8hr haul for one trackday is a waste of time and money in my opinion. Thats why I mentioned Summit Point since it's closer.....get us 2 days at VIR and i'm in, get me one day at Summit and i'm also in. Am I making sense?

Thanks, Ruben

Road Atlanta is FARRRRRRRRRRR.....so is Barber. I dont mind the long haul just get two track days set up. I know I speak for allot of members when I say they wont drive 8-14 hrs for just one track day. I know I wont....unless it's Summit.

Glad we agree. Now the other thing I forgot to mention is TPM doesnt do Road Atlanta or Barber, but NESBA does. So, I guess thats outta the question. I wanna do Road Atlanta next yr for sure, along with Mt treamblnt (sp) in Canada.....man I need another job just to pay for these damn track days!!!

Holy smokes, thats a drive all right. But seriously, i'm not as concerned with the drive as opposed to getting track time. If I were you, and I was driving over 8hrs, I would wanna do 2 trackdays, whether its summit, VIR, valencia, whatever. Think of the gas and other expenses, you owe it to yourself to do 2 trackdays.....:rock
