No cones! These are continuous laps for 20 minutes straight, like the real race cars. And we will be on the West track this time.

Do you have to have the TORDE for this? I have a friend coming down from Boise to take his TORDE on sat but I told him he should come Friday for this.

Awesome biggie. I doubt I will be making it, since I am in Boston for work hopefully I will make the next one.

4 sessions is a perfect amount for me and for that price it doesn't get any better than that.

General questions:

Will 3 20 min sessions tear your tires up?

Is it recommended afterwards that you change your oil?

Other preventative maintenance for tracking?



...very interested in doing it just not sure where to start.

You get 4 sessions, not 3.

Depends on what tires you are running and how hard you push the car. Snow tires don't hold up as well as race tires and going 7/10 isn't as hard on tires as going 10/10. Generally, you wont be giving up too much rubber on an open track day like this.

Wouldn't hurt... But isn't necessary.

Check your brake pads before and after the event.

I will be there and running my nearly scrubbed out Toyo RA1's. These are the best events to learn how to run the track in a non-competitive, fun atmosphere. Seriously the only real upgrade you need is a decent set of brake bads. OEM pads are fine they just get hot.

Good job Todd 1.46 is really moving. So who was driving the other corvette, the lotus, the evo and the 2 miata's. I know wrxpappy was in one but I don't see you on the list.

I was being cheap and timing myself inside the car. I really need to buy a transponder. I could own one now for what I've spent on rentals. My three best laps in the Miata were during the last session:

1:45.72, 1:46.06, and 1:46.47

Here's some laps from 6/20/09 to back those up with a transponder on the West track.

http://www.mylaps.com/results/showrun.jsp?id=1187580

I had a pretty bad vibration in the front end (probably another flat spotted tire) so I didn't feel comfortable pushing it as hard as I could, especially in the right handed corners.

Thanks Biggie and Matt!! A crazy night to say the least. It was so nice to have that 30 minute last session!!

^I loved it, you would catch up to me after a corner and so I would let off the gas so you could pass and you would just slowly pass me. Then when the corvettes would catch up to me and I came out of the corner they would fly past me like I was standing still but your times are still faster than theirs. I guess that's what happens when you don't need to slow down in the corners, Miata's are a freak of nature. You probably don't even need brakes, you can just drive the same speed the whole time. haha

I heard someone hit a wall! crazy! A couple years back Adam Munoa's little brother hit a wall coming off T2. The next year we all went full safety gear, cage and wheel to wheel racing.
