They had few bad motorcycle accidents last year where the rider was going too fast without a special racers license and there were problems. I heard of other track days getting cancelled there because of cars not having proper equipment this year. No need for a cage was one of the big reasons why all the big street players prefered to do track days even at the extra expense.
i heard that as well. i think private days are going to be the only option for a lot of the newer cars that throw down good numbers even stock

I said this a million times and
I'll say it again between the traction and weather conditions I went from 117mpg traps to 126.6 mph , bottom line is you need serious one on one with your car to get things in check and make the best out of your car !!

sooo what was the outcome? no way a SC m3 is hitting low 12's, i'd think maybe on street tires, but even then...

p.s. can you hit 11's on street tires with that set up?

With Pilot super sports and a small burnout you can hit 11's easily.The more time you have with your car on the strip the better you get. Every time you go conditions will be different ie. track prep, Temp, DA, and wind.
