    Yeah, you might want to "break in" the rear first, not "break" it. I'm looking foreward to it. I'll be back in town next Wednesday from holidays. Shouldn't really take another half day off but I figure the next month is going to be hell anyway so I'll ease myself in.

    Well, weather was great. This time about 18 cars so we were divided into beginners and those that have done this before. We were divided into groups of three. I was with a Porsche Turbo and a SL55 AMG. The beginner group had a Z06 Corvette, Aston Martin, couple of Porsches, WRX STI and a WRX with a bunch of work done, it really moved. I'm actually starting to get the hang of it.
    I have a long way to go before I'm putting my car to its limit though.
    Great way to spend an afternoon.

    Well I'm pretty much decided I'm gonna go on Sept 30th. Funny thing, my friend (with an STI) called up to ask some questions person answers... "Allen Berg." my buddy pauses, waiting for ....racing school or ....how can I help you. but gets "Allen Berg!...!??" guy answeres his own phone

    He asked what we were thinking of bringing.... when he said my CTS-V Allen replied "I've got a regular with one of those"

    Yeah thats you man

    If your friend is coming as well, he better bring his car. Allen Berg doesn't allow passengers or swapping drivers. So if 2 people come, one will be driving, the other will be really BORED standing and watching.
    Allen is pretty hands on, he has ridden with me a lot and he still allows me to come out although he has Grey hair now.
    See you on the 30th. Maybe the other beyond guy will come out as well.

    I'll be going for the afternoon only since I am a "graduate". I've done the first course with classroom twice. Last time a number of people stayed the entire day. This road car days is just something new so he had to have a number of full training days to get enough graduates to fill the experienced slots available.
    The classroom instruction and practice stuff is invaluable. (Also, he probably wouldn't allow someone to only sign up for the experienced level without having done the classroom stuff.)

    Well, I'll see you there then even if you do not stay for afternoon session. I'll just look for the other V! You will be wrapping up and afternoon guys will be coming in. There will be a bit of an overlap.
    When driving, just remember you will probably never hit WOT it will just get you in trouble and leave all electronic nannys on. They are your guardian angels.
    You'll be back for more.
