cold and rain can be fun. As long as it's not too rainy.

You learn a ton and the track days are usually less populated in Dec.

I'd go.

Less grip means you learn much, much more. I say do it.

Do it, but I'd buy track insurance for peace of mind if it looks like it will rain.

the weather variable is why track days in the winter are cheaper.....

Cool days...under 50degs...
tires stay cooler, car stays cooler, brakes stay cooler.
As long as it's not "really cold"...uncomfortable to be outside...then do it.
We've done trackdays at LRP with ice off the track and snow flurries...great fun.
Be good,
TomK
