I'll be at T-hill on July 3rd -- my friend is planning a day there and the cost will be much lower. Details to follow.

Better get out those intercooler water sprayers, it's gonna be HOT!

OIC ... this is the official "street school". Highly recommended, with more of a grassroots / practical emphasis than the expensive schools (Skippy and Bondurant).

Have fun up there guys, and don't let the Vettes get to you. You'll know what I mean when you hit the track.

Who is doing what? Anyone doing the two day event or just one day? I might be able to afford this one. Besides it's a driving school, insurance covers this in most cases.

Well Thunderhill does have more straight away's but I think the corners at Thunderhill are a little bit harder to figure out. Since the big cars can slow down and power out of them they can take thier time through them. With the RS you can keep your speed up through most of the corners which gives you an advantage, I think.

I was keeping up with an S4 last time I was there in my RS. Of course I could not pass him on the straights but he never got away from me. You would be surprised what the little RS can do, especially with a great suspension setup. Just got to get the Turbo now...

I am sure any RS would surprise even the big dogs like the Viper at Thunderhill.

the guys w/ the M3s weren't very good, they could only power their way by the smaller fours in the straights, couldn't outhandle anybody. the Viper and the 911 (who was w/ me) at Laguna were roasting everybody though

oh, appearantly group C is still open at T-hill

sign up if you're advanced

but I'm still beginning w/ the track driving, so I think my group of friends are signing up for the June Event

hmmmm, I don't think an RS can keep up with a >>capably or equally well driven<< Viper or modern Porsche. Few Turbo RSs will either.

Your best bet IMHO is to try and take the phat HP guys at Sears or LSIR.

After about a dozen track days at T'hill I'd say any decent driver with a nice HP car will ruin an RS in the long straights and sweepers at T'hill.

no, i know what you mean, i saw the map of the track. laguna was easier to deal with the big V8s, Viper, and boosted M3s. less straights. but t-hill's got a lot of straights.

my group just e-mailed me, they said that the April 14th Street School is booked solid
for groups A&B with instructors. They have been booked for the past 2 weeks.

The next scheduled Street School is Saturday, June 16th.

So I guess I'm going then :T
