If the track day goes through with a solid date the RACE dynamics group will drop in too, at least with one car, most of the regulars at track know which one it will be though...

Trust me, its just not worth it. We tried it last time and it just wasn't satisfying. Too many restrictions.

You'd be better off getting your car and driving it cautiously for the first few laps.

And anyway, whether you crash your car or the rented one, you're the one whos going to have to pay for the damages. So it really doesn't change anything.

I have never been to a track day as yet. Would love to join in and see what a track day is all about.

If it is a weekend AND there are no off-road plans, then I would be there to learn from you all.

Eiyeeeooooo. That would be fun -- to set slowest lap times in 'crawl mode' and 'swaying/toppling all over' .

This time around, would prefer to hitch a ride with one of you folks.
