Now I'm not so sure... does anyone know if you can rent helmets anywhere?? I started looking at buying one, and the cheapest one I can find is $350, and some of them run up to about 3 GRAND!! I don't know if I can justify spending more on the helmet than the track day itself...

Helmets are over-rated.... just like the rule of wearing pants at the dragstrip...

If I catch on fire, I'm pretty sure it will make little difference if I am wearing shorts instead of pants... They going to tell me I can't race if I decide to go without underwear?

Just my opinion.

I went out today to try on helmets, since I had no idea what size I would need, and ended up ordering one. It's reasonably priced, Snell approved, and it just happens to look pretty cool too! It should be here by the end of the week, but this is a pic I found online.

There only good for 5 years. So you have 2 years of use before they won't except it anymore.

Not true, they have instructors and 3 groups by ability level.

Having done quite a few with various groups I can tell you that you won't find any better than turn2. Lots of track time, great instruction if you need it and Tom is a great guy.

I was out there a few weeks ago and there were many people who had never gone before.

He also lets you take passengers once he deems you proficient enough. Not many groups do that.

I had friends running in group c so I ran in that group (beginner). Here is some footage from the ridge with turn2 from a few weeks ago. You can clearly see there were beginners out here but it's still very safe and organized.

I have a handful from turn2 on my page if anyone is curious what their events are like. Some in the advanced group, some novice.

If you can get the 7th off (a friday) that would be a great day. I'm going then. Being a friday there will be less cars on the track which makes it even more fun.

I am signed up for HPDE 2. I have a friend I am bringing, he has a 2009 Nissan GT-R, not sure if he will play or not. My car is getting the Summer tires put back on, the oil changed, and inspected for the track as I type. Looking forward to meeting any and all of you.
