Hooked on Driving - March 3rd/4th - Homestead

Just a heads up to the Florida guys... We talked about this at the MORR meetup, and figured I'd throw together a post on it...

There is a Hooked on Driving event that is still open for registration at ALL levels (Advanced/Intermediate/Beginner) on March 3rd/4th at Homestead.


From the Hooked on Driving website:
Saturday will be our traditional 3 run group format with six 25 minute sessions per group and Sunday will be a two run group format with 7 thirty minute sessions per group.
Saturday will have the NASCAR Banking open for the Advanced group in the afternoon, and Sunday will have the NASCAR Banking open all day for the Open Passing group. In order to run the open group on Sunday, you must have run on Saturday.



Registration for BOTH March 3rd & 4th:
https://www.hookedondriving.com/even..._Pirelli_Tires

Registration for Saturday March 3rd ONLY:
https://www.hookedondriving.com/even..._Pirelli_Tires

Registration for Sunday March 4th ONLY:
https://www.hookedondriving.com/even..._Pirelli_Tires


I'm gonna be out there SUNDAY, I believe Louis will also be there... Would be cool to see a few other local M3s representing!

My pleasure man.

Remember guys... you don't have to go out there to break records or push your car beyond it's limits! It's just a safe environment with fellow gear heads to push your car as far as you want.

Seems like Sunday may be very busy in the non-open passing group.

As long as I am in town I will for sure be there at least one of the days. Look out for me in a silver 350z. It might look like a moving roadblock for you guys taking your Ms.

Yes the Z is what I'm taking (as long as I can get alignment done on Saturday). Intermediate group for me, so no banking.

What tech inspection are you guys going through before hand? You mean self tech, or actually taking your cars somewhere?

^^ I took my car to AA for an oil change and inspection. Hooked on Driving has a self evaluation form, but I wanted to get the car looked at and the form completed by professionals for my first time.

Great to see you; had an absolute blast and am looking forward to doing it again!

+1 Matt on the car, it had a great sound on the track on par with anything else running and definitely was right at home with every other car out there.

Thanks for the compliments guys. It's a far more capable of a car then I am as a driver! But Raj, you definitely showed me how it's supposed to be driven!

Regardless, I gotta say I had a BLAST! Not just the driving, but it was an awesome group of guys. Great to meet Mike and George and I know Navid had a good time too.

Next track day might be too long to wait...

GoKarts anyone?

Oh, and does anyone have any pictures /videos from the day?

There were a TON of photog's there, but I don't see anything listed on the HOD website for them.
