They have loaner helmets. However, most track events will soon require SNELL 2005 or up, if they don't already. So you should probably invest in a newer helmet.

Inspection must be done beforehand. It's $35 and valid for year. Go see Noah at Cohesive Garage in West Seattle. He'll take care of you.

Thank you for the link. It's not cheap. Do people usually buy track insurance or just take the risk?

No lap timer officially allowed. This is "Driver's Education".

thanks nik. met up with karl yesterday and took his car for a spin to feel out the ASTs. thought it felt pretty comfortable and not too stiff at all. also like the feel of his BBK. so much more stopping power even at low speeds. first time i have driven a DCT as well. didnt do anything but leave it in D though. still feels quicker just because you dont have to work to make it fast.

CCCs typically fill up. Sign up early for the June event.

What an amazing day yesterday. Great turnout (most E9X M3s at any local track day I've seen!, beautiful weather and great camaraderie. See you all at the next CCA track day on June 22, or before!

Hey Nick - I see a Fiat 500 in the background...was it an Abarth? How did it do on the track? I hear they handle pretty well...not much power but a fun car to drive (go cart like).
