you should go with SpeedVentures... My buddy Josh (Gintani Stage 3) is helping organize it and might give you a small discount if you tell him Jason sent you

Josh is SpeedDistrict...Speed Ventures and ExtremeSpeed are different.


Extreme is the cheapest from what I've seen.

Speed District events tend to be on the expensive side, but you get more track time and some nice goodies.
But for those who just want to try it out, it may not be worth it

For example, Josh is charging $240 for Button Willow without timing ($20 more), where Extreme Speed is charging $150 with timing.

For Big Willow, Josh charges $220, where Extreme is charging $110 for their August event

With Josh, you're paying a more exclusive, laid back event with photos and such, which is a great plus, but not everyone wants/cares for/can afford the extras.

I haven't personally ran with Speed Ventures, so I can't comment on how they're run.
I have ran with Extreme and it's been great. Mike came in Feb and had fun too :P

I'll be running with Josh this weekend, so I'll be able to comment on that afterwards. I'm confident it'll be an awesome event for sure


Riz: Porsches are expensive when something breaks. Oil change should be around the same as a M3, mid 200s to 300 at the dealer.

For Willow Springs I generally leave my house around 6-6:30, so I wake up around 5.

For Button Willow, the guys are meeting up in Santa Clarita at 5:30am, so you'd prly have to wake up 4 or earlier.
I can't do this so I'm only doing a half day on Sat and leaving my house around 7-8. No damn I'll wake up at 4 and head out at 5, absolutely no way.

In the low to mid 30s I say go for it.

Put aside $$ for possible repairs though. This is true with any used, out of warranty car. M3, Porsche, 335, etc

Even if you get 30% off, it's still damn expensive.

Well worth it.

I like Ferrari and Lamborghini (to a lesser extent), but I'd rather have a Porsche. Different kind of car, I know, but still...

i get more than 30% cause they are the North American/GLOBAL Distributors... think somewhere in the range of 60% off. Remember, that's why i skip out on middle men... All my parts came from a North American or Global listed distributor.
