Grattan Driving School 6/22-6/23

Is anyone interested or already planning on going to this? I would really like to learn more about my car and how to handle her.

Video of the track from previous CCA school:


Details of event:

Trying to get a few of my other friends to join in also... C4S, S4, E46 guys...

Let me know if anyone is interested in attending so I at least know some people.
Thanks,
CP

Probably going to sign up for the 3Balls event at Grattan next Sunday.

About 1/2 the price of that school.

I'll run in the intermediate, maybe advanced group. You'd be welcome to ride along for some sessions with me if they'll permit. I'd be willing to ride with you and give pointers, though they probably will have designated instructors.

No expert, but 20+ events and I've been to Grattan.

(Only reason I say probably is because the dealer overfilled my oil and I need to address that first.)

That's the idea man. "It's not a race" as all HPDE organizations make clear, but you've got the idea, and fun is an understatement.

I'd say yes, but I am going to be up in Wisco for Memorial Day. Thinking of doing the BMW Dealer Autobahn day June 14th. As a warmup to 6/22-6/23...

Thanks for the offer. Safe driving!

Nice... I am waiting to hear from by buddy if he can sign up... If he can, I will be there. I am also planning on hitting June 14th at the Autobahn.

I can probably learn a lot from you Klammer.
