If anyone is interested, there is another school coming up at Gingerman in Michigan. Not as fun as Grattan, but still a challenging (yet safe) track.



Oct 10th: CGI Motorsports @ Gingerman

What: CGI Motorsports Driving School

When: Monday Oct 10th

I'm not ready to close the season yet. Join me at Gingerman for some fun. I'll be in their intermediate group and there are some spots left in that group.

All my track events have been with NASA so I would not be able to give you a fair comparison. I am happy with them. They do about 10 events a year here.

I put my check and application in the mail this morning. I checked a week or so ago and they still had openings. See you there!

Cool.

Dave DeBord will also be there in his new E46 ///M3. I'll look for you. We should be in the same run group. I'll be the one giving you the point by

I'll also be camping at the track on Sunday night to save more money for the track fund.

Good meeting you too! It was an awesome day. I'm really not that fast, I have just slowly accumulated a fair number of bits that help the car get around the track faster. I know I'm leaving a lot on the table. You also looked good out there - keep it up.
