Come on out for the November event! There should be approximately 4 20min sessions each day. There's also a race school available to sign up for the same weekend.
We are also starting up a TT program for Adv Solo drivers and Instructors. XCUSE_M3 is setting up the classing and I think we are going to test the format as well then.

My local BMW chapter is testing a TT program at the next event as well. I signed up to run it and try it out.

Personally, I don't think the Cup 2 is worth the money.

They are so expensive but they make a lot of the more unique sizes other companies donít offer.

It's not, one of the super-200tw out right now especially the likes of the A052 are comparable and lower cost. I'd stick to them unless odd sizing is needed.

From my understanding, Cup 2s have far more longevity than A052s. So yes, if pure one-lap pace is the goal, the A052 is a better tire at a better pricepoint than Cup 2s, but it wouldnít be surprised if Cup 2s cost less per lap/mile driven.

In Europe they don't have as many options for tires. Many of the ones we use here don't exist there. Also, cup2s are cheaper there as well

Looks like I’ll finally be kicking off my 2020 HPDE Drivers Cup this month or next month. Got the car to Austin, so now I’m looking at doing TNIA at Harris Hill on Nov 11, MSRC on Nov 16, COTA with PDS in Dec, and possibly MSRC in a couple of weeks. Harris Hill post-repave should be good; just need to put together a Laguna pipe before the event. I’ve never been to MSRC, so 3.1 without an instructor should be interesting. The downside to this is that I won’t be able to collect firearms as fast as I have been

Stick around the extra week and do the BMW CCA at Cresson on the 21st
And if you find a way to do Eagles Canyon you don't want to miss it.

I agree with kelsey 1.7 CW is a ton of fun compared to the standard CCW and ECR I would try my best to do the complete track if you can. But come out to the CCA event will be a ton of BMW's and people to hang with!

Really enjoy Harris hill post repave - absolutely transformed the track into an enjoyable experience now. Just did CCW for the first time and really enjoyed it.

OEM rotors - they're made of swiss cheese.

Can’t. I have to work one Sat or Sun every week. My car is too loud, so I can’t have an instructor anyways. Last time I did a full weekend was with TWS PDS in 2017 (RIP).

I can’t see ECR’s schedule for next month, but I’m hoping to do ECR on Nov 15 and MSRC on Nov 16, if possible.

See above. I’m not able to do full weekend events. I think Edge Addicts only runs 3.1 course. Gonna look into ECR events when I get some time.

Nice. I did see in videos that the uphill straight has two waves..I imagine it’s going to get very bumpy soon. Are you doing the TNIA event at Harris Hill on Nov 11? I plan on registering as soon as my supervisor gives me written approval to leave work early. At $130, I might as well go.

I agree with you, A052 - is the fastest tire at our local circuit, but for ZCP wheels R19, A052 have no sizes((
