I'm sure it's a lot of track time, but $400 for 1 day?

Yep, no DE 30 min session stuff. Full blown test & tune day, 6-8 hours.
Basically a track rental for 30 guys max...

Many Northeast tracks are well into the $300 range for many more groups.

For a 4 session / day 2-day event. Heck, PCA is $280.

So (4) 30min sessions work out to about what, 2 hours of total track time each day. Times that by 2 and over the course of 2 days at the track you're getting a total of 4 hours track time. Plus you are running with say 20 cars on track in each group.
At $120 more than PCA you are getting: 6-8 hours of track time, about 30 cars max for the whole event, a pro driver, a skid car, classroom instruction if wanted, pit workers for hot tire temps, back massages (yep that's how we roll) plus you're saving the extra night at the hotel because its 1 day...

Another great day. Weather was perfect and a nice turnout.

Finally got some numbers on the car

On a side note, I'm gonna start another thread for a trackday that may be more suitable for some guys...
