Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course open Track Time
 
PLEASE READ THE LAST FEW POSTS OF THIS THREAD. IT IS BEING UPDATED WITH DATES FROM A COUPLE PEOPLE THAT WE ARE GOING TO, OR THAT ARE AVAILABLE.
ALSO, POST UP IF YOU ARE GOING TO ONE OF THEM SO WE CAN TRY AND BE THERE TOGETHER OR AT LEAST LOOK OUT FOR OTHERS THERE:wave:


So, Mid-Ohio has now got a open track time in the evening on the folllowing dates.
Wednesday, September 18
Thursday, October 10
They have set these up like other tracks have done and how they run their motorcycle track days. They have 3 separate classes based on experience and courses completed.
You can read more here: http://www.midohio.com/School/Course...pen-Track-Time

The time is for (3) 20 minute sessions for $195.

If I get help organizing this and we get enough cars, I might be able to get a date where we have the track longer, but will most likely cost a little more as well.

I know, don't get me started:paddle:

I had to go to several different sites to get people. (G8's, GTO's, corvette's, etc.):mad0259:

I have just come to the point to talk to a few freinds, organize a day that works for us and then let other people know what we are doing if they want to join us.


If you weren't so far away I would be there, I would love to do that track. If I am ever out that way with the car, I will do my best to hit that track.

cornerspeed92 12-30-2012 04:57 PM

Me too would love to do mid ohio

:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

cool, I'll be in touch. Last track track day at mid-ohio rained all day. It wasn't all about top speed, but it was cool to see how well the stock tires did on the wet pavement.

Then when I was up at Gingerman, it was wet all morning. It gave me a chance to learn the track and the lines.

August willl most likely be out for sure because of C5F4 at Indy again in the beginning of the month.

Drew10 01-04-2013 08:00 AM

I will be keeping my eye on this.:thumbup:

BrazenBeast 01-05-2013 10:39 AM

I'd be interested. September, October would be better for me.

Jim968 01-05-2013 01:46 PM

My Camaro is my DD, but I want to give it a light workout on track and this sounds like a good opportunity. Also, if you end up organizing a more formal HPDE I would be able to instruct if the date works.

TLSTWIN 01-08-2013 11:08 AM

Good news
 
I just heard from the guys from Mid-Ohio. I have to follow up on Thursday with another guy.

It sounds like we will possibly be able to get the whole place to ourselves again if we get 20 or so people and have it for about 5hrs instead of three. Depending on how many different groups we have 2 or 3 it will mean more track time.

We will have to pick a day that is not already on the calender, that I listed above. I won't know what day we can choose from until I follow up on Thursday.

I need everyone interested to hit up all their friends that might want to join in.:thumbsup::help:

tomster 01-12-2013 05:43 AM

No, sorry.. been busy with becoming a grandpa an working tons of hours.

I should be able to make the call next week.

amerimuscle 01-19-2013 11:02 AM

Anything in ohio between February and November count me in ! And ill track her til she runs out of fuel

TLSTWIN 01-22-2013 10:09 PM

ok, it appears they want us to have our own day & time.

So with that being said, we will have much more liberty to split the groups up. He is supposed to be getting back to me next week with some possible dates and a price.


With that being said. I will most likely try and go to a date I listed above as well.

I will post up here to see if anyone else wants to go to another day with me as well.

Stitch 01-23-2013 11:06 AM

I'm tracking this...

flyer08 01-23-2013 06:07 PM

May 22nd and I should be able to make it

tomster 01-24-2013 10:44 AM

FYI

Might be a little early but tickets are on sale for Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. KEEP THIS DATE OPEN! F-Body weekend is June 15th, 2013. Get your passes early and enjoy the discount. We are expecting a large crowd this year. There should ...be at least three of Ohio’s largest Camaro groups/clubs attending. Lets outdo the Mustang group this year. Good chance you will get a chance to be on the track after the event Saturday too. Just about everybody gets a door prize for attending the corral.

The past two years the track time was nothing to brag about. It was like rush hour traffic because people thought it was cool to do burn outs instead

tomster 01-24-2013 11:09 AM

Any one run here? http://nelsonledges.com/GOTfunDays.aspx I would be interested in doing that as well!

I have not, but a few frineds I ride with have. They say it is rough and a short track.

Let's try and keep this thread on topic for mid-ohio and then start another thread about Nelson Ledges. I am not opposed to trying it once, just not excited about that track. If you do start a thread for Nelson Ledges, let us know about it here as well.:thumbsup:

Mgizzle 01-28-2013 07:44 AM

Keep me in mind please, I would be interested since Mid O is my most favorite track. I need to get a few gingerman events in first though to learn this car a bit.

Ya, will do, but if you have never been on the track, I think Mid-ohio is the better option, just due to the class structure and instructors.

Also, let me know when you do Gingerman, make a thread and post a link here, or shot me a PM. I will also be hitting Gingerman again.

Mgizzle 01-28-2013 08:46 PM

I ran Mid O before, just not with a big V8. Tracked with NASA HPDE and fell in love with that track. Looking forward to going back.

TLSTWIN 02-12-2013 07:28 PM

Well I finally heard from Mid-Ohio.

Turns out the delayed communication could be Really good for us.

They are trying to configure a day just for us, insurance and all. He asked me to wait for a couple more weeks while they work on the details.

Regardless how this turns out, I will probably still do one of these other dates I have listed above as well.
