    fuelman--
    I'd like to drive over from Sarasota just to watch and listen--not compete or run on the track. Can I do this? What would be the charge for my wife and I? I've never been able to participate in any of the North Central VCA events so i'd like to give this event a shot. Thanks--Dave

    Thanks for the info--we will be there--thinking about the hot laps, however was there for the NARRA last May and witnessed a Z06 get totaled and a few other incidents. Not sure if we are up to the risks being OLD and HEALTHY--kind of like to stay that way --Dave

    If Lee ends up bringing the Comp Coupe out I'm sure there will be a line for rides.

    Great event today, thanks to all who helped set the event up, and got the [email protected]!!! I know a great time was had by all, several vipers were on the track & were able to give "ride-alongs" to everyone who was interested. Thanks again Cathy/Jim & Tina/Lee for setting up the event

    Just wanted to give a special thanks to Cathy, Jim, Tina, and Lee for pulling this event together. We had an amazing time learning about our cars and the track. We also wanted to take all you that were kind enough to give us ride-a- longs. Because of you we were bitten by the track bug that I’m not sure I can afford.
