Default TCG track day

So any thoughts on a good day to try and get out again at a track as a group.

Was a lot of fun last time and it seems we have some new people this year.

AB full is next month on the first Monday, but that might be too soon for a meet. I am very likely going, as well as a friend or two. There's a later AB full that we went to last year with a few TCG peeps (including you both) we can try to make that a meet? I think it was with LAPS, but I feel like I am wrong. I'm usually wrong.

Deng, I was right. We DEFINITELY need to do that again. There was enough of us to REP TCG, but we really need more. This straight line focused forum needs to realize the earth isn't flat.

6/19 has a gps track time event at ab full (so monday)

difference is, i don't believe laps or mvp will let you take passengers outside of advanced or even instructors. gps will let you. 7-20 min sessions $238. for an extra 20 they will provide a gps puck and data at the end. iirc it's 10 hz, so much better frequency data than a (1 hz) phone or most action cams. you could marry the data to vid later too.

That's not bad at all, I usually don't like to take passengers anyways.

It sucks there's such a small group of us hitting up track days but I understand. It's way cooler to stand next to your car, rather than race you car.

I just ordered up a new power steering pump and the power steering cooler came in yesterday so if I get that installed without issues I will try and register for the event.

Default TCG track day

Seeing as I've only done 1 day w/ only 2 sessions I assume I'll be in the beginners group again and have to get on the wait list for an instructor?
