I took my 1LE out to show the beginner group,and although i didn't get any hot laps in i did hit hard a couple turns.I had the standard Pirelli P ZERO on as opposed to the Goodyear supercar tires,wow what a difference,now of course it was like 30 degrees difference from last month,but man it was slippery.

The reason i brought this thread back up was to see if any of this group is running in Nov? it's Nov 9-10 I have earned enough track credit that i will for sure be there,and it would be cool to own the garage again
Ill be there in November! a lot cooler temps so it should be good

I have a totally nob question,

So, after one of this track sessions, should I expect my tires to be done? Will I need new tires soon?
And also, how much is the helmet rental there?

Thanks

I have a track day at Laguna seca,and one at Fontana,i drove as hard as i could at both and still have probably 2 track days on them,so no you wont be able to go through your tires.Now a track day at Willow springs is another story,that track is hard on tires.

Thanks, thats exactly what i was looking for.

I have another question though, do you guys buy a special track insurance in case you crash? (if one exists) or will the "you gotta pay to play" saying apply s here?

I used Lockton ins last time I ran at ACS. Great place, answered all of my questions and was fast. You can do it online and don't even have to talk with anyone. I just had some questions and they were awesome to deal with.

Going to be honest. The insurance is nice....but if you cant afford to drive the car off a cliff dont race. Take it easy and go a pace you are comfortable with.

I had Rynes tires after him and had another 2 weekends on them before i flat spotted them.

I'll be there 9 and 10th. Weeeeeeeeeee hope it is nice and cold.

Unless youre superman i dont see how anyone can afford to drive off a clif but i see what youre saying.
i have a 500 collision deductible, just not sure if they would cover me being at the track thats all.

Your insurance will not cover you on a track. Get track insurance!

Superman wasn't wealthy...He just had the Clark Kent income as a newspaper reporter...So he probably would have bought track insurance also...lol

No your insurance will not cover track days. If you crash and dont have track insurance you would have to commit massive and deliberate amounts of fraud to get them to cover anything. Track insurance is available...maybe even from your regular insurance company. Tho i wouldnt tell my regular insurance that the car they are insuring is going on a race track.

Chmsc is the only person i know that has used track insurance. I know it wasnt cheap and had a large deductible.

Hope to see you out there. I will be near the other cms cars most likely...silver ss come by and chat! Change your fluids!
