    Done, thanks Mark

    Unless he wants to run his new girlie car in Inter, Daryll Yeng is an advanced driver w/ PDC (he runs w/ Marlon as well). He's been to Mission a quite a few times. I'd check w/ him to see what he prefers. Thx.

    Mission isn't a fast track, it's a technical track. Letting a relative newbie loose out there can be a very bad thing. I watched a guy destroy his Ferrari there a while back. It was sad.

    The way ProFormance runs it for novices (the one I did earlier this year) is with the four 25-min sessions, novices cannot pass anyone except for the last session, and only in one place on the track. They also do a lot more with breaking up the novice sessions into small groups of 3 cars and have an instructor for each group and control what happens in each of the 4 sessions. The first session starts off slow and easy by playing "follow the leader" as the instructor drives the lead car on the proper line, progressing to the instructor riding shotgun, to solo lapping to finally limited passing between T2 and T3 during the last session.

    To me that seems like a smart thing to do in order to have a safe event. I'm not sure what the format is going to be for you guys but I hope it's "slow and easy" with progessively allowing more freedom as you guys get comfortable on the track. I sure don't want to be reading sad stories about you guys on this forum.
    Exactly. I dont really want to wad my "investment" ( yeah, that's a huge stretch ) into a ball. I do hope though that there is an opportunity to advance as is necessary; all the other track days I've done they've moved me from beginner to intermediate after a couple sessions.

    If you guys notice any classing errors, please feel free to PM me or post here; I'll modify the list as needed

    There will also be an opportunity to do this at morning registration

    Maybe the list is not reading out right on my computer, but I don't see my name there. Wazzup?

    I'll be the slowest in the advance group, but I'd like to be in it if possible.

    can someone check my car to see if it will pass tech for the track day?
    the only thing i worry about are the tires and rear brake pads.
    the tires have between about 1mm (inside) and at most 2mm (outside) of tread until wear bar
    the rear brake pads have about 1cm of material, which is about 50% from new


    another question: will ICBC cover any damage that may (or may not) happen during the track day?

    June 6th Mission Track Day is approaching very quickly so I take this opportunity to remind everyone who will be taking part with the event to get their car ready for a track intensive course that just got even harder on brakes.
