Waiting on discount code from NOLA Motorsport Park but should be registered for the 5th for their open track day.

Anybody else feel like coming?

I didn't make it out last weekend, so I'm down to (hopefully) go this Sunday. I won't be there super early though.

They actually have a half day session (3 x 20 min sessions) that I will be registering for. You just need to be there NLT 1130. This all depends on whether my new tires come in though on time though. :P

Yeah, I don't have tires for the track yet. I do usually try to get there around or before then though.

From reading the website, I thought you only had two options on when to show up.

I'm going to assume you've raced around there before. Does it get pretty packed during the open track days? This is the first time I'd be tracking this car and would like a little bit of wiggle room to get a good understanding of the car.

I've never driven on the track myself. And I haven't been for an Open Track day for cars, only the NASA track weekend and the Open Track day for bikes. For the races I saw during the NASA track weekend, there were probably about 10-15 cars on the track. For the bikes, it seemed to just be a few go out when they want a few laps, pit, tweak and return eventually. Never seemed too crowded on the track.

I'm not certain about the times, but I'm friends with the BD & Technology Director from a previous job so I'll try to get some clarification from him tomorrow and let you know.

Yeah just trying to find some information. I'll be making a 4 hour hike to get there and just want to have a good time on my very very limited time off. I'm trying to get a few guys from the base to come with but it seems pretty limited. :P

Anyway, any further information would be greatly appreciated.

You're correct, there are two different sessions.

And he said it hasn't been very crowded previously. I doubt they'd over book it to where it wasn't enjoyable anyway.
