If only I knew that Sloppy would be dishing out free hotel rooms I would have signed up!

Sorry, there's a very slim chance you'll see me at any CCA event. Nowadays I try to maximize track time and that means registering at trackdaze, PCA, NASA/SCDA events in that order.

Unless there's a month where the stars don't align for any of these, CCA is off the table for me. I sidetracked another thread with the CCA vs. everyone else discussion but I digress... Have fun and take some pics!

Dale.b and herrherrlich,
I sent you guys a pm about PCA event 15 and 16, but I'm not sure you guys can receive pm's since you don't have that many posts.

Let me know if you guys are still going, what run group you're in and where you're going to set up. I'm staying at the Quality Inn Friday night.

Wonho - are you still wait listed? Send an email to Bob from PCA to make sure.

I was ready to register for the Summit event in early July but I can't get the deer video out of my head yet. We'll see.

I feel you, but Summit (Main) is actually one of my favorite tracks, and reasonably close. To be honest, I've yet to hit up Lime Rock but for some reason they don't have many driver schools there and the few that I did find are really expensive (typically $600 for 2 days), which is even more than NASA NE's events.

If Lime Rock had more frequent and cheaper events, I'd change my routine to just NJMP, Lime Rock and WGI... but as of now my rotation consists of NJMP, Summit and the Glen.

Yup, you're right, Lime Rock is expensive, but I had to do it once. $300 for one day in late April. Totally worth it.

I had a great time with PCA at NJMP Thunderbolt June 15-16! A great bunch of guys who seemed to be named mostly John or Mike LOL. Hung out with Dale.B who was able to take some iPhone pics and vids for me. Dale is a great guy who has made the change from bikes to cars with a sweet 2008 e92 M3.

I ran with the black group solo. At first, I looked at the starting grid and realized, I'm in what has to be the SLOWEST car on the track! I thought oh no, what am I doing here. I'm going to be just pointing guys bye constantly. The vast majority of cars were GT3 or GT3RS that were modified. We had a Ferrari F360 Challenge car too.
It ended up that yes, I was passed MANY more times than I passed people, but it wasn't bad at all. I would point bye about 4-5 cars and then have free running for a good number of laps.

Saturday, a guy in a modified Exige joined the run group. He had a modified exhaust that shot out 1 to 1-1/2' flames on decel. Looked fantastic from behind. He would start the session quicker than me and then mid way through I'd start to catch him, pass him and then leave him. Street tires even on a light weight car such as the Exige just didn't last compared to my BFG R1. I noticed he was running RE-11s and asked him if his tires when off. He said yes.

It was interesting because the BMWs were unique at the track. Both Dale and myself did get our fair share of admirers.

I ended up running a 1:37 before my R-comps gave up (10th track day on them). Not too bad for a 3,200lb street car with about 280-285hp. Many of the Porsche guys thought I was throwing the car around pretty well. Dale and another P-car guy were in the tower and were suprised how well the control tower watches EVERYONE on the track to make sure no one is doing anything wrong.

All in all, a fantastic time with near perfect weather (low 80's and sunny).

I really wish I got into that event - DAMN it looks like a great time Rob. I love Thunderbolt, so many fun turns. The octopus ... I always goose the throttle a tiny bit at the end and kick the rear out. Just enough to feel it.

Black run group at PCA is a badass crowd! I am usually in the yellow/green and find myself stuck behind many cars. Last time I was on Thunderbolt with PCA I got to the front of that run group my last two sessions and wasn't passed (OK ... well, a 997 GT3 RS did but that does NOT count ).
