Dark Side Drivers Ed (all dates)

The DarkSide Drivers Ed (2 Track Days with Instruction) at Roebling Road (Savannah) will be on May 3rd and 4th. Roebling is a 2 mile road course with no outside walls and lots of run-off area. It is a great track to start out and learn speed (125 + at the end of the straight, brake and turn right). Multiple run groups with multiple sessions a day, class time for the "green" group and in-car instruction for green and blue. Data on DarkSide is available at Dark Side Index. Registration will be through clubregistration.net (open now). Register for account, then go to http://www.clubregistration.net/even...?event_id=5646

For a tour of the track, check out
, it is from one of my first events. For those who have seen the "other" video, there is a new "other" video ; ).

Come up for a great weekend. There is usually a good Mazda representation, 7's and 8's, I remember a 6 wagon tearing up the track as well as 3's and 2's. DarkSide does Taste of the Track ride-alongs. I will happily give RX8 Club rides at speed.

FYI, this is a great track for the 8, very easy to drive.

FYI, A great weekend planned. Groups are starting to fill up. Remember, DarkSide does a Taste of the Track? That means a guest can get instructor rides. A lot of the groups out there do not provide this option.

Checking the roster for Dark Side. What a mix of cars. This will be grand. But, um, rotary folks out there, right now it is one little RX8 up against BMW, Porsche, Corvette, Panoz, Nissan, Honda, Lotus, Ford, Mini Cooper, Volvo, VW and Scion. Need a little help here. Especially from the FI community.

For the rest of the Mazda community, We have 1 Speed3 and 3 Miatas. Some help would be appreciated there as well.

04Green,
I'd love to attend one of these but I just cant right now due to a career change which in turn means low car FUN FUNDS
When things turn around I look forward going and representing for the FI guys

Bummer. We used to have a pettit based one. Denny was hell on wheels and great fun to watch. I am getting tired of being down 200 hp, but cannot do much about it for awhile.

All the may event is coming up. The second and third. Register at ClubRegistration.net.

Groups are small, plenty of track time, and a great group. There is room in all run groups.

@ Article, the parcel shelf seems to rattle at speed with the windows down, or there is some really bad buffeting. We played with a helmet mount last time that worked really well. The camera is an old gopro on a mount attached to the kiddie seat bolts.

And yes, you should visit, it is a great weekend.
