yes, book it over the phone direct with the hotel and ask for that rate.

its not that simple.

I didn't know about this track event. by the time i heard of or about it and went to sign up, it was sold out. so i considered going just to spectate, see you again and meet others which will turn into a $300 weekend w/o the fun of driving my M3 ON the track

option 2: is the drive with the Houston bmwcca guys

option 3: head up to The DFW and participate in the NTBC Video shoot

option 4: stay my happy ass home and pack my house since we got orders for New Haven, CT......

I thought you had the option of participating in the track event...my bad. Sign up anyway and you might get in last second. Stuff always happens.

You're moving? Not going back to trashcanistan?

Have seen a couple of Red or instructor cars go off there and end up in the tires.
Hmm, maybe THAT'S why a Corvette in Red went basically straight off at the end of the T3-4 straight running CCW -- and during the warmup lap!

By the time you've reached T15 you're on your third fairly quick and substantial weight transfer, so I can definitely see how a pendulum rear-end and probably coming into T13 too fast and sticking with it rather than adjusting could end up being a real problem by the time you get to T15.

I don't have the app, but if you can preview the track layout of a given profile, pick the one that matches the solid black line of the TWS graphic on this Driver's Edge page: http://www.thedriversedge.net/02_tracks.htm

Thanks for the tip! When I looked really close at the maps in the app, I can just make out which configuration each one is.

Thanks!
