Replied, prices are all in USD, for anyone else who may be wondering.

E36 M3, should have checked here before sending. Mine converted to Canada Bucks.

Once it equates to the correct amount in USD the currency doesn't really matter, either can work.

I'm intrigued and am thinking about how I might be able to work this into my plans. Currently I was only thinking about flying down to spectate this year, but if I could figure out a solution then there is no reason to not stick around for a track day, too... is there a cut off date for commitment or number limit I need to know about?

 

I guess I kinda  do have a habit of renting fast cars and doing really stupid E36 M3 with them. It has literally been decades since I have been party to wrecking one on track, covering it up and committing massive insurance fraud so I suppose it isn't going to happen again?

The hard cutoff is on October 10th, this is when the final payment to the FIRM is due, we'd need to set a cutoff some time in the week before (3rd-16th) to give everyone time to make their remaining payments.

I'd also been wondering about maximum entries at their track days and haven't been able to find any information about that online, I'll ask about this next time I contact them about the deposit payment.

(Edit to correct cutoff dates)

Thanks for the prompt info, I knew you would have some info for me. That gives me some time to figure out if I can arrange an actual car of some kind to use while down there...

 

I don't really want to do anything crazy stupid, but if there was a local challenger or lemons team or whatever that rents out their car to so i could chill at 8/10 and have fun then maybe someone here would have a lead for me...

Regarding the maximum entries, I got an answer back -  the only limit is how crowded we want to make it cheeky

Which can be a safety issue. It's a very narrow track. I'm not worried, though. 
 

I have confidence that we're going to be less of a risk to each other than just showing up at an open track day with random people. 
That's a factor in my decision to participate.

Should have the deposit paid by Monday evening, almost got it done today but my contact there was out of office early.

Might be a little late in asking this but I've never done a track day.  Can I pay extra to have an instructor ride along especially to teach me the ropes?  I'll need to learn proper point by etiquette since I'll probably be in my stock NA.

Good news. I some questions. 

How many registrants do we have? 

Are we open to having non forum members attend?

Yes you can, it's an extra $100 though, to be paid at the event from what I understand. I'll double check with the FIRM on this next time I contact them.

We have 10 right now, no problem if non-forum-members want to attend.

Most people let their pride get in the way of an instructor but the best thing you can do is get one.  I try to get one at every new track if possible.  You will benefit greatly from one.  I try to get a instructor/coach every chance I can to keep improving times.

I am more afraid of doing something stupid in front of the fellow GRMers than my pride.  I mean I know I can be an shiny happy person but I don't want you guys telling the whole board that I'm an shiny happy person on the track also.  Besides I'm a builder not a driver so I expect to be slow.

Don't worry I am bringing  Miatas so we can all be slow.  hpde track days are just for fun there is no competition and every event  I have ever been to everybody always works together to have a good time.  Looking forward to going.
