I'm wavering... This would be my first real track event. Had no idea, but one of my Mom's cousins is WAY into racing at the events they have at NHIS.

My tuner is flying out Wednesday and we're installing Thursday, on the Dyno Friday... so I could make this event.

I need to buy a helmet though. My big ass head won't fit into most, and I wouldn't borrow one. Any recommendations on places to try some on, and where to buy online for cheaper?

I'll be honest I'm scared I'll drive like crap. I expect I'll only run on Saturday though with an instructor.

EDIT: How does the two driver one car registration work? For myself and the tuner to drive the car?

Same here:

Car, 2008 STI, is stock right now, BUT before the event we'll be changing the following:
Turbo
Injectors
Downpipe
Fuel Pump
AccessPort (will be retuned)

What class does that make me?

I'm going to head to HMS this week to get a helmet. I had no idea they were even there... my mom used to work years ago for a book printer in that industrial park.

Search n00b.......







If you can fit into a 7 1/8, you could borrow mine, but it's not a large...more like a medium. (KFoote, close your browser).... Nick...put yourself in STGT. When you're in tech, tell them you're only doing the school. This will reduce hassles. When I drive my street car on school days, I don't put a class on the car. (illegal, but that's what I do)

For a 2 driver car, fill in as a 2 driver car. They'll put you and your tuner in 2 different groups. Likely 3 and 4 unless the tuner has lots of track time. You'll both have to pay the full fee.

Don't worry that you are not driving well. In 4, nobody drives well. (for that matter, there are huge differences in average driving skill from 4 to 3 and 3 to 2 and 2 to 1 and 1 to instructors). Pay close attention to the instructor and do what he says. (unless he says to turn left at turn 3......I do that all the time for some reason). Stay in your comfort zone and allow the instructor to drive your car for the first 3 or so laps. Don't "try" to be fast. Overdriving into a corner will not make you fast. Better to be slow in and fast out. Try to snag rides with any instructor during the 0 run group sessions if you're not otherwise tied up with class or other required stuff.

Get searching for laps at NHMS in-car on line. There are tons of vids. Watch them with a track map and try to get as much in memory about where the track goes as possible. I still remember, back when we ran 2 stone wheels at Bridgehampton being lost on the course. Luckily, Barney was on the side pointing me in the right direction with promisses of Bronto burgers if I didn't slide off the side of the volcano into the tar pits.

James, I think you'll be in the SPB class for sure.

Ron, looks like you have another person to compete against...

I think for what you have now, you'll be in the street touring class unless all the mods you mention is installed. Once all the mods is completed, you be in the SPB class.
