Default Man am I jonesing for some track time....

Skiing with the family is great, but not the same high as the track.
PMP on opening member day and LRP in early April can't come soon enough. This winter already seems too long.
The Jones is bad. I am not alone, right?

No.
You are certainly not.
My last two track events in Nov and Dec went bust.
Now...well, the promise of Sebring looms.
After that, who knows?

Using the time now to make sure the money faucet is in good shape (i.e. solidly OFF) because it will be running full blast between mid-April and (weather permitting) late-October

Also dreaming of a tire sponsor--31 days + stock suspension = lotsa tires

Last year a lot of the early April days at LRP got cancelled due to snow. How about flying down to Sebring and renting a DE car for the PCA Club Race weekend? IRacing?

Come get some simulator time. Then you will get one at home. It will help pass the time.

Just started booking some track time here in the Northeast. Nothing is happening before March 10th, best case scenario. On the upside, I should be getting some work done on the cayman late this month or early next!

Would love to, believe me, (and I am a Chin member), but way too far to go for 2 days at my level of track driving right now, but in the future for sure when I am a better track driver. Would love to do a 3 or 4 day event there considering the distance it is for me.
COTA is on the bucket list, and I will get there before I die, just not this winter. Thanks for the suggestion.

Giving very serious thought to registering. Very serious thought. Would be my first event with Chin. Long way to go for 2 days (and not the full course for both days, North on Saturday and Full course on Sunday), but the Jones is strong and the track is calling my name LOUD and CLEAR.
I had a wonderful time at VIR last October with NNJR, which btw was my first time there.
