Great suggestion but I am not racing yet. Just a measly DE guy so far, but I will get to Sebring at some point. (You and I will probably meet this season as I plan on doing a few of the MNY DE's and hang out with my long time buddy JLanka.)
IRacing is in my future for sure. Thanks.

I plan to Matt. I'll be in touch in the next week or two to set up some time with you on the Sim. If you don't mind, I would love for you to be there when I first use your Sim. I'll be in touch for sure shortly.
Thanks....

I just registered for the March 3rd and 4th at VIR with Chin. Will be my first event with Chin since joining them last year.
Can't wait......

Jeff - As you already know, weekends during the winter are mostly dedicated to KMS with the kids for me. Weekdays work best for me during the winter months, so I can blow off work pretty much any day and time Monday to Friday. Gimme a call on Monday with a few midweek days that work for you and we'll set something up.

Thundermoose - I have heard nothing but great things about Chin, including great coaching and lots of Track Time. (I hear between 3 and 4 hours track time/day because of how they limit the number of participants. I think I grabbed the last novice spot but reg page said 37 spots for solo drivers still open). One thing for sure, they are not the cheapest track days I've done by a long shot, but the amount of track time clearly makes up for the difference in cost compared to a normal DE. I will surely report back on my first experience with Chin.

It's not just the track time. It's the people and the culture. You'll like it.

See you there!

I've done a bunch of PCA, one ACNA event and one Chin event. The chin event was the most I have ever driven in a day, I think I got something like 3.5 hrs of track time. The last session was a "happy hour" - all run groups could run for an hour. It was a bit hair raising with RSs flying by me one after another. I both set personal records on NJMP thunderbolt, and got passed more times in a lap than I had been passed in the entire year of DEing. (Not a con, just a fun fact). Chin was also pretty loose on instruction/classroom compared to PCA. All in all more geared towards experienced drivers. More expensive, but fewer cars on track, and much more track time.

I would definitely do chin again.

Awesome things to hear about Chin. Cannot wait.
Are you guys staying at the track or in Danville? My last trip to VIR in October, I stayed in Danville.
I'll surely find you guys to say hello and maybe share a drink and a cigar as well. Looking forward to it.
Very psyched!!

I'll be at Road Atlanta for my first time in my E46 M3 with Chin on 2/24-25. Looks like a ton of Porsches signed up. Any RL'ers among the list?

Do you tow your car with that or do you put your car inside it?
