All I see is drag strip threads here. Certainly nothing wrong with that but doesn't anyone share info on actually turning right and left on a track??? I've been running my 13 GT on a few road courses in the NE and having an absolute blast and doing quite well against other vehicles that I would have guessed would have blown off stock (almost) Mustangs. Love to hear if anyone's been around Lime Rock, Pocono, NH or NJ road courses this year. If not, you don't know what you're missing!

I usually try to make a trip to the local road course out here in Colorado a couple times a year. It's pretty awesome going out and seeing what I can stack up against. It's tough for me to do it more because this is my DD. It was definitely a great feeling blowing the doors off a NSX cause the owner couldn't drive it very well the last time I was out.

I autocross regularly along with a few others on this forum. Never taken my car to a road course though. Track days at Laguna Seca are never less than $400 from what I've seen.
Most track days are $295 in the Northeast. Since I use my DD I also opt for insurance which runs $200 but I think I'm the only one at the track that does this but I'd better be safe than sorry. Yeah tack a tank or 2 of gas on top of that and it does pinch a bit.

While auto crossing offers huge bang for the buck, there's just something about a full road coarse day that makes me glad I bought a GT.

Damn that's expensive. It's $150 for a full lapping day and $90 for a half day out here. But I do wish I had access to some of the tracks you guys have.

Opps. But I ended up moving to Nebraska. Which had very few road courses
It's probably a hell of a drive but I'm planning on going to High Plains raceway on Sept 29th if you wanna join us.

Looking forward to doing some road courses but at the moment having a lot of fun in autocross. Out of curiosity, what classes are you guys running in? Im currently in F-Stock on street tires and planning on staying there.

I ran F stock last year and think I could again, but I did download a FRRP tune and changed the brake pads to Hawk FerroCarbon so that might kick me out. Also moved to Michelin Pilot SS which were not offered so...either way I never got serious enough with auto cross to worry about winning a class. For the road course events there is no timing, just trying to improve with more track time, racing against those in classes with similar experience.

I run in ESP with Nitto nt555's competing against mustangs with R spec tires. I'm not nationally competitive, but I'm usually top 3 in class in our region, with a couple over all wins.

Took the words outta my mouth :) if you head to road ATL or Roebling let me know. I'm dying to go but I rarely have the time. But if someone else is going it'll give me an excuse to take a day lol
There will be a 3 day track day at Daytona in December which I am currently planing on going. U can choose to race 1, 2 or all 3 days. But it is still too far away to say I will go 100%. At the Daytona track you will see very very high speeds compare to other tracks :) :) :) :) :) :)
