I'd second that, I just went to one at Watkins Glen, it was great being on a track that was designed for speed and racing the full length. I did Michigan MIS a few years ago and they had a short banked section (still got up over 120 in the 6.1 SRTs) but then they had carved up the infield into some twisties, it was a little goofy -- but still fun.


Mods: Hurst shifter, front & rear Petty strut braces, Speedlogix catch can, 5% tinted windows

Going to VIR sounds like great advice. My boss takes his Porche Boxster there a few times a year and loves it. A good mix of speed and twisties. Really looking forward to it!

I would think if you would call them and explain the situation they would most likely get you in.
You have one year to sign up but you can reschedule and take the track experience later (after your "year" is up).

They are pretty flexible. They want to get people into the event. I have been every year for 7 years and will go again in 2013. Favorite venues were Watkins Glen anf NJ Motorsports Park, least favorite was Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth and Englishtown, NJ. I have heard VA Motor Speedway is a great place to go for the Track Experience day.

Did the f1 karting at thunderbolt, definitely looked like a cool track. The karting was fun as hell.

Considering we bought a car that had it included in the production cost it should NEVER expire. They know by the vin number if it has been redeemed or not. An expiration date gives them money they didn't earn.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.
