Well, just looked at SBR's Facebook page, and it looks like they had so much fun that they are going to have another track day on Sunday, September 11th. (Yes, on a WEEKEND!)
The cost is still the same $25 too!

Hmmm, I was planning on going to the Indy event at grissom that day, but I think I'll go to the track day instead, since I'll probably JUST be getting the tires I've been waiting for months for since they got delayed AGAIN to August 31st.

I might have to do this again. You really can't beat the price of admission.

How much tread is left on your tires Charlie?

Ooooohh, that autobahn test drive looks very interesting!

I wouldn't worry about it if they're like new. especially in September.
I went there fully prepared to cord my current street tires and barely made a dent in them, even after more than an hour of hard driving. (Granted it's a car that's easy on tires.)

I would really love to give this a try... not to sound like a broken record, but if I can get out of work, I'll be there.

Emailed the Autobahn guys, apparently its for 'prospective members' and I'm guessing they won't be getting a $500 cavalier on their roster any time soon.

Also in my inbox today was 2-day track event at the Milwaukee Mile coming up 8/27 and 8/28 (same as nationals):

I'd get a kick out of the roval track, the place has history about as deep as Indianapolis... am I too off topic - should I have started another thread?

Are you wanting to go to the sbr day?
If you are, you would have to become a dual member since it is only open to sbr members.
I believe it's only $15 to become a dual member with sbr, so even after signing up, it's still only a $40 track day.
which is still cheaper than gingermans normal test n' tune of $75

I'm aware.... watching your videos have got me really interested in track days. Doubt I'll be able to go though, it might be wiser for me to wait til next year to try such things.
