For tho's who saw this thread and thought its to much money.

You are WRONG! I just had the chance to run there (2 days) and I learned more about driving at this track that i ever had on the road. It is like nothing else you have ever done! at $10,000 per day to rent this track we need 35 cars to get the price down to 300 a person! I am telling you that is a bargain!!!

If you are from the area you need to be talking about this with you friends and getting more people Involved.

If you would like your cars aligned for the track (to get the most out of your car) I would be happy to do so at a great price at my shop (10 min from track) and align it back after.

I live ten min from the track would be happy to host something at my house as well!

I really do wish it was cheaper, I just can't afford $300 for a day at the track. I know it would be a lot of fun and probably be worth it but I just can't bring myself to shelling out the money, maybe later on in the summer when I save some more up(cars been a money pit lately lol).

Are you still working on a track day at Mid-Ohio? The Camaro corral on 15 Jun might be a good time to look for more support.

I have tried getting those guys involved, all they want to do is burnouts on the parade lap, they ( for the most part) want nothing to do with actual track time, unfortunately.

I am doubting I will be able to any midweek half days like this now with the change of jobs. I thought I would have been working in the Canton area, but am working in WV, just south of Wheeling.

Like I said earlier. I am too busy to stay on top of this the way I should. Please feel free to plan and organize days and post them here if need be. I have yet to hear back from mid-ohio on my "special" day.....

please PM me some info of who you contacted,Your full name, (so i can mention you in my phone call) phone numbers names? What info you gave them? What they told you about the "special day" so I can try to pick up where you left off... The problem is you can't please everyone and hopefully members will change/move their schedules around to go to this event. Mid-ohio is known as "one of the best courses to drive in america" Who knows maybe this becomes an yearly Meet. I'm thinking of trying to get it posted on clubregistration.net as a camaro/Corvette event Having instructors sign up to instruct that way everyone can get to put down some good fast laps. Even with little/no experience. Instead of the lead follow that mid-ohio will want new people to do.

Yep, and multiple points in that.

I did this two years in a row, couldn't get a commitment from enough people last year, so I went to Gingerman for two days last year. fun track, not nearly as fun and technical as Mid-Ohio.

I will be doing a track day at mid ohio on june 10th With a group from Akron http://autointerests.com/events/444

If I feel everything runs smooth at that event, We will partner with them to set up an Camaro5 event later this year.

We will be using their site to register.

Now the bad... To secure the date with mid Ohio it will take 15 people to put a deposit of 100 dollars. By a predetermined time. If that $1,500 is not met by the date there will be no track day and all money is returned... If you are a driving instructor or know a driving instructor they will get in at a reduced rate as we will need instructors to ride with anyone with less than 5 track days.

This would be a Full day 8am-5pm. Runs would be 20 min long. and everyone should get at least 5 runs. This will come in less than $300 which is a bargain for that kind of time on mid-Ohio.

If I am going to the trouble to make this Happen I sure hope that I get the support of the forum and we get a large turnout!!!

Had a really good time at mid ohio today. The event went pretty smooth. I felt as though there could have been more instructors. The drivers meeting could have been more informative. Seemed the people that had never driven there before didn't understand all the rules/passing points. But Once things got rolling it went really smooth.

I will be contacting them to help host a Camaro5 day later this year.


It was nice meeting Terebit and finally seeing someone else out tracking there ZL1 like they were intended to do.

Oh yeah and a had the chance to pass a GT500 a couple times.

I had a blast too! We got to see it all; rain to start the day then dry/fast conditions the rest of the day. The ZL1 is awesome on the track and Mid-Ohio is perfectly suited for the capabilities of the car.

Agree, they need more instructors to get the new guys up to speed. They were only able to cover about a third of the Novice group. Fortunately, a lot of the folks running in the Novice group had some prior track experience and everyone behaved pretty well.

Enjoyed meeting tomster and his wife. I hope you didn't scare her too bad. Looking forward to the next track day!
