    Track night in America

    Has anyone on the forum participated in” track night in america” ? The program is being offered again this year. Looks like a great chance to get some track time for short money.

    Yes. It's a solid run program and I find it's less waiting around between stents than a normal HPDE day. Last season I made it out to Thompson with my track prepped 930. Tech is 'self evaluation'. I haven't taken the Cobra out yet, but it's on the to-do list.

    Open track days are not for beginners, and not for the feint of heart.

    If you're a beginner, you'll have trouble learning the line on your own. You can do it, but nothing makes you faster and better that a coach in the right seat.

    Also, you never know who's going to show up for these. There might be a few yahoos who don't know what they're doing, and just bought a new 'vette. If they take themselves out, that's OK. But they often take others with them. I heard a rumor that this happened at High Plains Raceway recently. One driver took out three cars. Could be just a rumor, as I haven't seen any pics or video or that. But we all know it happens.
