Well, I'll be gone from the 22nd of May to the 4th of June on vacation so I will probably be too jet lagged to go (or too sunburned). I am going to the June 12th HPDE though

I am not sure funds will allow me to go to the PDC events. With the few mods im doing, i would rather have them in place before i try to do any 'real' driving.

autocross on the other hand, well... i can tone my driving down a bit.

Crew, guests & family members: Check-in and sign track waiver at guard station at tunnel entrance. Those who arrive after 8:30 AM are required to give the name of a current PDC/NASA Member for admittance. An adult must supervise minors. No one under age 18 is allowed on or beyond the pit wall. Driver entered in the event will be held responsible for the actions and conduct of their crew members and guests. Only enrolled drivers are allowed to operate a vehicle on the track. Any driver who allows a non-enrolled person to drive their vehicle on track at any time, will be ejected from the event and permanently expelled from PDC and NASA._

in other words... It's free :D

It costs $30 to register as a passenger, but as most of us aren't "solo" level that option is out the door

I will be there... Just got done talking to the president of the club.

the GCAC events do not require anything more then you, your car and a helment. $15 for sat and $25 for sunday. You do not need to attend both days. Either run saturday or sunday or both (you must have attended novice school on saturday prior to running on a sunday)

You dont need an SCCA memebership as they are an independant club. It is a little misleading seeing the SCCA National Tour banner on their site.

I was there last event, just watching and it was very cool to even watch (was also the saturday event i saw).

I am not trying to promote this event...but more get a "few" people to attend so im not the only one there that doesnt know a damn sole.
