Which track are they using?
We went to the SAAC event at NJMP in 2008 when it first opened, we were on the Thunderbolt side. I got to drive "parade laps" for those 3 days (very crowded) - in my green car. That is a really nice course, not too tight yet some good combinations. I have not seen the Lightning side.
Have fun!!

Don't know which track as this guy walked in to the shop last Monday very excited apparently he is a Porsche driver instructor who passes our shop everyday and said he can't resist the temptation not to stop by when he saw the toys we put outside (Bentley T 24 R (only 24 in the world), Porsche turbo ,GTR,Maserati,Supra,Shelby,Evo,M3,Alteeza turbo,etc..) he said it's on him and bring the Porsche and GTR it will be follow the lead car type of deal on full speed but no overtaking allowed since i'm a newbie but anyway who's gonna overtake over 100 mph on the straightaway? We should be there by 8am

I went to NJMP's open house event a few weeks ago. I did the fan laps on both tracks(2x each), which on more then one occasion I hit triple digits on the Lightning bolt straight. Although most of time we were at paced highway speeds as they literally let anyone on the track(prius, stretch excursion, mini vans, and Hondas)

I plan to do a track day for "progressive" lap program come spring as I had a blast and look forward to learning the capabilities of Cadzilla on a road coarse.

I asked if i could bring the Vette as it is more for the road course (full pdaft coil overs and swaybars) but the invite is limited to two but next time i will give the Vette a shot.

I can see why this sport is addictive nice group of people from all walks of life turned out to be my instructor was a lawyer and man he can drive but he loved the 996 tt and i let him take Hoobs for one session. I'm sure goin back there again it's so much fun and great camaraderie. In the beginning there was a race prepped Subaru STI that wreaks havocs with our times and it reminded me a lot of our GNs his head gaskets pooped out and there was a nice older Toyota MR2 with a large wing from Bucks county that was puffing smoke and i told him not to race anymore because it sounds like he needs a tune but he did anyway and his car caught on fire later,and another e46 M3 slammed the wall on the chicane, otherwise everyone was safe. It was a blast day:headbang: We were at the Thunderbolt.

Would be fun to set up a buick to handle the track.
ha ha i won't recommend it because i can see the Buicks will be the fastest in the straights but will be all over the bends:D lots of fender benders, now with a nice lowering system and stiffer springs it will be a different story. I would like to see one set up for road racing though maybe the Ferrari Calamari:D
