New England Area "Track Night in America"

Anyone from new england on here run these events? I did my first one at Lime Rock last year and im hooked. Already have 3 more events booked. It would be cool to see more third gens and less WRX's lol

Re: New England Area "Track Night in America"

I have done a couple in the past, at both Palmer and Thompson. They are great events... you get a reasonable amount of track time and don't have to sacrifice a whole weekend! Once my car is done I'm planning on going to as many of these I can. (You can see my "pro-touring" thread in this autocross and road racing section of the forum).

Here is my car at Palmer a couple years ago:

Re: New England Area "Track Night in America"

Im thinking I'm gunna try to do the scca time trials at thompson in June. Sounds like a really cool event. Check it out if you hadn't heard of it yet. I'll be there for track night June 18th as well. I'm also doing track night next Thursday at lime rock as the unofficial "opener" for the trans am race that weekend which is pretty neat. My car is at the shop currently having weld in subframe connectors put in, and I got a fresh set of corbeau gts II seats to go in when I get it back.
