Anyone up for a Road Course day at Lime Rock Park?

So we talked about it, hemmed about it and hawed about it.
Some say mine's faster, the others say theirs is faster.
Some say it's too heavy
Some say it's too slow
Well, we've got a date set up at Lime Rock Park on Monday April 09th.
We'll have 2 camera's mounted. One on each vehicle.
I being an inexperienced road course attendee vs Boston DMD who bought the Jeep to tow his Porsche race car.
Anyone can attend and enter their car. You only need a Snell 2000 or newer helmet and some balls to bring their car out on the course.

And for some peace of mind, they offer a race track insurance program for around $250 that covers complete loss of vehicle while on the track.
http://www.scda1.com/blogs/bd/2012/0...Programs.EXL./

After looking at some of the video on youtube, it's not going to be a wide open Wk1 vs Wk2 race. It will be a timed event however, which in turn will tell us something. #1 who is a better driver, or # who has the faster Jeep.

Anyone else up for coming and stretching their legs with their SRT?

Scott,
Can we put this same thread in the WK SRT8 as well, so both can see?

Re: Anyone up for a Road Course day at Lime Rock Park?

Kudos to QuickOne for stepping up and joining me at Lime Rock for a fun day at the track......

We worked very hard to convince this club to allow Jeep SRT-8 on track with other sports/race cars, in fact, I don't know of any other club that allows "SUVs" to share a track with performance cars.

If you want to join us and you never been on a track before, you can sign up in the novice group and an instructor will be assigned to you and show you the basic line.

If you are a racer, they also have intermediate and advanced run groups where you run solo.

I know that me and QuickOne will have a blast with our SRTs and HD cameras running.

As far as which model is faster, well....... mine is completely stock and I have never driven a non-manual nor a SUV on a track, so I think QuickOne and his WK1 have a distinct advantage

I hope other will take this opportunity to join us for a one of a kind track experience with other SRT enthusiasts....

Re: Anyone up for a Road Course day at Lime Rock Park?

What would it cost to bring my jeep out? I've only ever raced 1/4 mile, i'll need some hand holding. I'll be in New Haven visiting my family the weekend before, so I could make the hike up there. Even if i whimp out of racing, I can watch!

Re: Anyone up for a Road Course day at Lime Rock Park?

Doug, come on out, you won't regret it......

https://www.scda1.com/events/detail_by_id/100101028 is the link

$345 and if you are a novice (never been to the track before) they will assign an instructor for you at no extra charge...... all you need is an helmet.....

if you have done this before, me and Brian would love to run with you in the intermediate 2 group

If you just want to just come by and hang out, I guarantee you are going to catch the track fever.....

Hope to see you there......

Re: Anyone up for a Road Course day at Lime Rock Park?
