Lapping Mid-Ohio

http://youtu.be/gk6yD_07PYQ

Working through traffic at Mid-Ohio. Passing was only allowed in specific sections of the track, and only after a wave-by. These weren't my fastest laps of the day, but it was fun working with the other drivers.

Looks like you're getting the hang of it!

I was there running in the advanced group shaking down my race car. I'm thinking of running my daily driver Camaro with these guys the next time they run Mid Ohio.

Next time you go we will have to make sure we run in the same class. Not sure if I will be able to do the later Sept one because of work...

Thanks for letting us know here, but you should start a thread to let everyone know.

I know, I am excited. I hope to get a catch can or 1LE oil separator by then. I got the new "strong" MAF sensor coming this week. Never realized I had a weak MAF sensor until I had to clean my Vararam after Gingerman.

Mid Ohio is getting dang pricey. $200 for 1 hour???

Nelson Ledges, which is not nearly as nice of a track, was like $150 for 5+ hours private track rental. We all left because we were TIRED, not because we were out of track time. Heck, they have several open "FunDays" a month. 6 hours open track, $130. Thats less than $22 an hour.

We should try to schedule a track day up there sometime.

Mid Ohio is pricey but its worth doing occaisonally. I'll see if I can free my schedule up one of those two days some of you will be at the track and maybe I can make it up!

I also swapped the body for a C2 Z28. (In short I traded it for three cars, a Corvette Z06r, a C2 Camaro Z28, and a Cadillac CTS Summer Performance package 3.6L DI with Aisin 6spd.)

5hrs nonstop on the track?! I have never seen any track do that, not sure I would want to. it is always 20 minutes on, 40 minutes off. when we went 2 gingerman, it was still only 2hrs of actual track time.
the dates most recently are full days. Which will be 1.5 to 2hrs of actual track time.

This was SOOO much better than the two I organized before.... all track time
Don't get me wrong. The ones I did were meant get a few more track addicts to stuff like this & were fun, but nothing beats all track time.

AUTOINTERESTS & CAMARO5 PARTNER FOR MIDOHIO TRACK DAY
BIG NEWS!!!!

I talked with Auto Interests and they are going to extend a Discounted (Group) Rate for camaro5 members and friends. Here is how it works!

-Get 10 or more cars to Commit and we will receive a discounted rate of $250

-Discount can be retroactively applied to members who have already registered

-Free Spectator entry for members of camaro5

-If we get 15 cars or more: will receive dedicated parking area and 3 free dedicated garages.

This will be for the June 2nd event and Sept 1st event.

Events start at 8am and last till about 5pm.

There will be run groups for everyone from beginner (0-5 track days) to advanced (20+ track days)

I will keep track of the members who want to attend. Once we have a list of 10 or more who are ready to register, I will contact Jason and he will Issue a coupon code to enter at checkout. This coupon code will get us the discounted rate, But only if we have the group together 1 month before the event.
