Skyline Run IV - Planning Thread

Time to start planning for Skyline Run IV! Please pick the best dates that work for you. Usually we run on the weekend following a holiday as there's less traffic so my vote is with July 10th.

Any ideas on what to do, where to go? I'm thinking we could take the quick main roads into WVA as there's a lot of nice roads there with little traffic. Different than the ones we drove last time. Or maybe do something at Summit Point Raceway?

I have another good cause that we can support this time around. I hope to get all the details on it soon so I can share it with you guys.

@Darkstar- can we please avoid the restuarant from Skyline III - horrendous service

Keep the thread updated - can't wait!!!

I loved the previous route, but wondering if we can add a road where we can test the LC.

Test the LC
you can find a quiet road or large empty parking lot to do that anytime you want - so why wait for a drive?

I'm definitely in. 7/10 works best, but the June dates are the only days I have no chance of making it. This will be my first Skyline visit with this group, so I'm game for whatever route.

I don't know anything about renting a track, the cost, and the paperwork involved but we could all sign up for the next NCCBMWCCA track weekend. The next one is in october and registration opens in august. We would have to all sign up as soon as registration opened because it fills up quick.

I don't want to be the only M5 driver out there like last time
