We have the day booked full!  31 drivers!  Plus a few supercar experiences mixed in so it will be a very busy day.

This is the only day we have set for an HPDE this year so far.  CotA is keeping us very busy.

Hey Grant is the DE full?  I didn't realize it was a DE.  I thought it was only for driving those sweet sweet cars you guys have.

We have overloaded ourselves for Sat with HPDE AND driving supercars.  It will be a crazy day.  

And sorry, yes, the day is booked full.

Thanks Mike, sorry I couldn't reply sooner but we were at the track very late prepping for the event.  

Huge thanks to Mike and our crew for keeping the schedule on track along with most of our students!

Had a blast as usual with LRA events. Great turn out, great weather, great instructors. I even set a personal best time at H2R.

Ya it was a great time! Wish LRA would do more DE!

I was also able to improve quite a bit. I am still leaving a lot of time on the table and can't wait to get back.

Yeah, this was probably the best-run event yet. I enjoyed the red classroom session as well. Good job guys!

Smurf blue so that was you in the black miata with gold wheels?  I was in the white one.  Really had fun trying to run from you:)

Yep, that was fun! I never did find a line that I liked around turn 2. There's just no way of avoiding that bump :(

I hit that jump with a ton of steering input and just hang on for the ride.  It seems like there is a ton of grip when I "land" and the car stays pointed in the right direction:)

Yeah it wasn't that I was having a problem with the car getting upset, it was just that my tires were crashing into my wheel wells. I need to get under there and check if it was just the fender liners or what. I don't think it was really hurting anything but it bothered me enough that I found myself slowing down a lot before the bump.

Yep.  I had to lift my car by at least 1/2" because of that.  Was tearing up my fender liner.  I'm still bottoming out but not enough to damage anything at this point.

What bump? I didn't feel any bumps...

 

Grant, are there any LRA stickers available? I need one for my trackbox that I keep my track day stuff in.
