Just signed up for the Glen with GVC on April 29/30.

Was hoping to get to Limerock before that but don't see anything listed yet. CCA NJ has an event at Thunderbolt on April 1/2 and then CCA NY has one at Lightning on April 9th. Do you guys have a preference towards either track?

I just ran with Chin over thanksgiving weekend. Fantastic organization if you are looking for track time above all else.

You get a 30 min warm up lap in the morning with all groups, then 4 regular 30 min sessions with your designated. Then you have a 1 hour happy hour with all run groups, by the end of the day its usually empty so the traffic isn't bad. So 3.5 hours in total.

There's an unmuffled Lime Rock with PCA on 4/4 on clubreg. Its all in the afternoon - 5 sessions for $325. My car won't pass sound there.

Thunderbolt is the better of the two. Lightning isn't bad either but not nearly as interesting.

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, vacation is blacked out for the first 8 business days of the month for me. Never know, maybe ill be sick that day, haha.

Also thanks for everyone's input on Lightning vs Thunderbolt. On a semi-related note, i just realized my belts expire soon and I know NJ has a special rule about expired 6 points. How strongly is this policed? Seems ridiculous to me that my 5 year old harness is no good but my 20 year old factory belt is okay.
