I'll be there..have been for the last 3 years. But Mike, this is an Open Track and student event only. You'll have to contact them about getting checked out for OT if you want to come but I'm not sure they will do that since it's a student weekend. I'm doing the Friday and Saturday - not sure if I'll stay for Sunday.

Garylimey is coming as well and will do all three days with his new Turbo build.. And no snow since I've been going.

June 13th – The Longest Day at Watkins Glen! AKA the 12 hours of the Glen.
What am I talking about? Well we were contracted for the 13th and 14th at the Glen. But Nascar needed the Tuesday for testing (Nascar owns ISC or vice versa) –So –who is left out? WGI has been great about trying to make something work for us—so Track opens at 8:00 AM and Closes at 8:30 PM ---11.5 hours of track time! We run until lunch –where other club members can take touring laps ( low speed) and after that get a ride with instructors. Then we run until 5:00—1/2 hour break and run 5:30-8:30 –yee Ha! Sunday we will have something going on –probably involving wine /beer and food –touring the country side etc. –Expect an on site BBQ or something on Monday!
How can I get in on this?

the details have not been posted yet, but they should be soon on the BMW car club, Patroons chapter web page http://www.patroonbmw.org/wordpress_driving/. There is also contact information. Are you a BMW car club member?...I think that will help but may not be necessary.

The information that I posted was from an Email from the person arranging the events. He said that the papers still have to be signed.

Make sure to bring your skis and snow tires. The snow pack will probably not be melted by then...

Hadn't thought about that. The next 2-day event at WGI isn't until July.

Your chances are pretty good for July, as far as the snow is concerned.
I'll probably be there late Sept./early Oct.

Say, for those who are interested - I have compiled the 2011 track days that have been posted in the previous pages into a "calender". See attached...let me know if I made any mistakes.

Updated calender....(see post further down)

Nice job, 'Eddie'. Looks like somebody has too much time on his hands. I wonder if Porsche Bob will be at all of these...

I think Porsche Bob has a full calendar, maybe more full than eddie's.

He did about 75 days last year. Now that he has a raced prepped white 997 GT3, I think it will be full steam ahead...

Eddie,

I found a little inconsistency in THE schedule. SCDA May 10 LRP is missing and SCDA does not have an event at WGI May 16.

I hope I not the only person looking at your hard work.

Slinger, maybe you should have your eyes checked before track season gets under way.

New ones on the way. But they are for distance not for reading.

Did not stop you from riding with me last year.

Well, I'm glad to hear you're not planning on doing any reading while you are driving around the track. If your distance vision is good enough to see SDriver way in front of you, you should be in good shape.

When I lose sight of SDriver in front of me, I can count on seeing him in my rear view mirror very soon.

I haven't registered for any events yet, but I'm considering the following:

Monday, April 18th @ LRP with SCDA
Friday, June 24th @ LRP with NASA
Friday, July 1 @ LRP with SCDA
WGI with NASA the weekend of September 30th-October 2.
