Your car control skill appears to be good enough to enjoy Sonoma.

Why does Sonoma not have many dates? Are most available dates reserved by and for professional racing events?

Re: Thunderhill, man, if I couldn't stay overnight, I'd just drive up early in the morning. Looks to be only a 2 hour drive from the bay area. Congrats on the upcoming baby.
Yea Sonoma is very technical. The walls are what scare me the most there. I'm not sure why they don't have as many dates. I do know they are the most expensive track to rent.

Thunderhill is a 2.5 hour drive for me. Laguna is 1.5. I could drive in the morning, but I tend to have a hard time sleeping the night before track days so it's a big risk.
I hear ya on the sleep. That was an awesome video and the drama of the lap diff in real time was fantastic as well as a useful tool in review Man that video really makes me want to drive out
