I would love to come. I'm very keen this time. Let's see.... If I come, I'll bring along dad's NHC Vtec with the Advans. Dying to see what it does on the track when a ham fisted guy is driving.

Was someone able to get into MMSC today? Like somebody said in this thread there was MRF racing for motorcycles going on & I was not allowed inside without a ticket. When I asked for ticket, all of them have been sold. Is this track you guys are refering to or anything else?

Yeah, agree.

Also, from my limited experience on the track, I felt that it is the suspension that takes more beating than the tyres. The latter is just about money - replace tyres and go on, while the former could screw up your normal driving experience & be tougher to rectify. Especially if your track-car and daily-driver are the same.
