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.

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 09:00 AM

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

BrazenBeast 01-05-2013 11:39 AM

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

Jim968 01-05-2013 02:46 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 12:08 PM

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:

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 12:02 PM

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

TLSTWIN 01-22-2013 11:09 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 12:06 PM

flyer08 01-23-2013 07:07 PM
