VIR sep 8-9 Seriously, just missed one I was at this monday at Autobahn with LAPS. I'm not going but there is a Team Stradale "spontaneous" track day (as they call it) this Monday also at ACC and believe HOD is up at gingerman this weekend. I'm taking Sep off (in the midwest) but Oct. 1 there's a HOD at ACC, oct. 8 Laps at ACC, and Oct. 13-14 will be up at Road America with MVP. That's my remaining schedule, am sure there's a few others out there as well. Hope to see you out there
PS I also just live northwest of downtown, grand & ogden area if you're in the neighborhood

There's a BMWCCA event at Road America, 28 -30 Sep I think.

Richard,

Thanks for the reimbursement for the hammer! You didn't have to do that! It worked out because I got off my arse, went out and bought a real BFH so now I can really break...I meant...fix things.

For those who have been to Road America... is it a track that's hard on tires? I will be there for 2 days. Trying to decide whether I should order a second set of slicks.

I've never run slicks so can't be totally sure, but its really a fast track and the drivers side front can take a beating in the carousel. I find it harder on brakes than tires, but maybe someone with more experience with slicks could chime in, but would rather have 2 sets and not need it then 1 and need it. Am sure it will be used sooner or later
