I absolutely love The Glen. I'll be up there 4 days in May, but that's at the beginning of the month. I might sign up for those two days. As for August, that's probably not going to happen. If I make it, I'll look you up. Or if you see a carbon black E46 M3 w/ an orange roll cage and interior, come say hello.

There should be a bunch of us there for both dates and it would be great to meet a bunch of you guys there.I have not been to the Glen ontrack in almost 18 years when I codrove in an American Firehawk race there in a Camaro.We are much more active in the Canadian section about these days.

You absolutely should! GVC BMW CCA is very professional. They really give you the best value when it comes to instruction (there are cheaper 'lapping day' outfits). The fact that it is Mother's Day weekend makes it tough for some. I won't be there because I have a charity event on Saturday that I can't miss

Gearhead--I just got back from a two-day event there with NASA/PDA. Had a fantastic time. What a track! There was a group of Corvette guys there from Ontario--Powell Motorsports. They had a couple of Z06s and an older C4 Vette. They were celebrating your elections yesterday.
