Mike, for sure man I'll keep you in the loop, the more the merrier.
I would be interested to that as well.

Lon - add me to the list. If I couldn't get a DS before 12/23, I'll just pay the additional $129 for instructor

BMW CCA Car Control Clinic will qualify. It is a requirement for CCA track events. CCC fills up very fast. There should be one in October at the Marina. I heard Marina is better than Candlestick.

This whole track thing is getting me all excited so decided to sign up for a driving school at Buttonwillow on 9/15 with a buddy of mine and possibly the CCC at Marina on 10/20.

I'll be there at Buttonwillow on the 19th as well. Hopefully it will be a bit cooler by then. It will be nice to meet some of you Norcal folks.

Yay, see you there!

I'm heading down a few days earlier so I can have Tekarbon work on my headlights and since I'm going with a group of friends, I can hitch a ride around LA and even San Diego as well. We plan on searching out some good eats and karting locales down in SoCal

Looking to be fun!

So what was the verdict for this specific day? Are they offering instruction at additional cost or no?

My buddy Eric with the red lotus might be down to join us

Yep just registered...thanks Ron for the email, PM, and post reminder! Hahah...I've been on a plane in a different city (and sometimes country) every week for the past 4 weeks for work and will continue to do so til early September so my mind has been a bit scattered lately. Looking forward to my first time at Laguna Seca!

I signed up, though I will probably bring the E36 instead as it better fits the wife, dog and all of the holiday jazz for that week.

Anybody have any pointers regarding sound check and rain delay info on laguna seca. Seems really stringent. And the rain policy seems stiff

If you're not on r-compounds, you'll be okay even if it rains

As for sound, worst case scenario is lift-off and/or upshift to 4th gear between turns 5 and 6 where the sound check hut is
Orrrr if you wanna go through the hassle of putting stock mufflers on, you could do that too =/

sad news...well, you've still got a couple of months to go, so see if maybe plans change?

Or, you could ask NCRC to maybe give you a credit/tab for some other event?
