I guess I could schedule the ToD trip the weekend before, then drive up to IL, visit a friend, then finish the trip with a track weekend at Gingerman. I don't think my S2k will hold enough luggage / tools / whatever else I may need to make that trip though lol.

I'd love to get lapped by some Evo's in my S2k on gingerman!
That would be glorious if you came. Best to stay and drive Saturday too, with AutoInterests.

Watched a few vids. Looks like gingerman is a wide open, safe track with tons of runoff.

EXACTLY. You really, really have to be a lunatic to hurt your car there. The only turn that could even remotely be considered an issue is turn 11, after the straight. But even then, you just run into sand. As long as you don't turn in too early while carrying too much speed, you can fly thru it. Its actually one of my favorite turns.

This is a great event for anyone beginner to advanced. Lots of track time for a very good price. I will be back this year too.

Yes sir. Same ones as last year - literally. I didn't get on the track that much after this event last year. Hopefully they have some life left in them. How about you?

I have one more set of them, but I might just run worn Hoosier R6's that I'll have after the first few NASA dates

Uh huh, tons of runoff. As a matter of fact, I know that you really don't even need turn 10. You can just go straight off of turn 9 to the back straight and save some mileage on your car he he.

Ever plan to bring the event to the west coast? I'd definitely be down to go to Laguna Seca or something. Buttonwillow works too
