Anyone attending the free driving seminar by OC Racecraft at El Toro?

Not sure if this has been posted yet...I didn't see anything on a quick skim, so I'll take my chances. I'll be attending on Saturday the 16th.

Regular track days are pretty expensive with OCRC, and I'm sure this free seminar will have some sort of upsell, but I think it's still worth checking out.

Here are the details:

If anyone here is going, let's say 'hello'

-Ken

I'm not sure how many "seats" they'll have but my guess is it ought to be limited, especially since they say it will include some driving sessions...so I'd recommend that anyone who is interested sign up quickly. It's only a week away

Sounds more like a car control type thing.
Just join the CCA and go to a real race track. You won't regret it.

It would'nt let me sign up for the 16th-only the 15th, assuming it's full, I'm going to go on Friday.

One of my current clients is the former MCAS. I maintain the base's infrastructure so I'm usually there 2-3 days a week anyway.

You're right in the sense that it will be more of a 'clinic'. But for those of us already in the CCA, and itching to run our cars now, we know that there is not much happening this month.

El Toro's runway 'straightaway' is 2 miles long. Their created track length is 2.2 mi. The OCRC have done a pretty good job of utilizing the portion of the runway alloted to them to create a nice "track" that for many of us is within a 30 minute drive from our homes... besides, it's free!

I understand that this will not be a track day or anything but it'd be nice to learn something. I've got a couple of other Ms registered from MFestforum. Looking forward to seeing you all.

Yes whoever went please let us know what you thought about the entire seminar. More importantly, how many times did they allow you to go around the lap?

I signed up for tomorrow I'm curious how you all liked it.
